The Advocate celebrated 40 years with an splashy cover and a much splashier party last night at Republic.

Ann Cooper, Kimberly Pierce, T Cooper, and Felicia Limas posed for the camera.

Perez Hilton might think about dyeing the chin rug to match the drapes.

We looked around for Rex Lee, but no luck. And conspicuous by her absence was Margaret Cho–is she no longer gay-friendly?

Arts editor Corey Scholibo was easy to spot in an easily-spotted white suit. God we miss disco. Ashley Jones didn’t get our reference.

Jane Lynch told us about her VH1 pilot, her dogs, and her new film with Eric McCormick.

Greg Hernandez chatted with Marcellos Reynolds about evil Dick winning Big Brother. Or maybe an evil dick? Not sure.

Writer Deborah Behrens discussed the changes at Whole Life Times and we agreed that Abigail Lewis is sorely missed.

Katherine Heigl, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, editor Anne Stockwell and TR Knight were all suitable festive. Knight was like Prom King all night.

And TMZ got suckered by a Lance Ito lookalike.

The AP Throws a Party in LA, FBLA Not Invited

lindadeutsch.jpgThe Associated Press feted special correspondent Linda Deutsch on her 40 years with the gruel-and-grind outfit. We’d love tell you about all the war stories Deutsch shared — and all the gentle ribbing dignitaries made about her various idiosyncrasies. But we can’t. We weren’t invited.

LA Observed, who also was not invited, supplies details from a spy:

District Attorney Steve Cooley brought a resolution praising Deutsch and was joined at the party by Simpson trial judge Lance Ito. Among the hundred or so guests … were appellate justice Nora Manella, federal judge Robert Takasugi, Loyola law professor Laurie Levenson and litigators Tom Mesereau and Harland Braun.

A video of Deutsch through the years made liberal references to Elvis Presley, her idol. It was no coincidence, apparently, that today was his birthday.
