madeyoulaugh lets us know we’ve arrived
If you’ve read TVgasm at all, you have probably figured out that our main offices are in Los Angeles. This is good because LA remains the showbiz capital of the world, and wherever you find “the business”, you find the people who are desperately trying to get into the business. Reality television has added a twist to this demographic because they are famous, but not really. Of course, being the celebrity whores that we are, we are still consumed by anything these people do. Recently, Creative Light Entertainment sent along a few invitations to the premiere of their new movie The Scorned, the filming of which became the E! series Kill Reality. EdHill, who did such a great job recapping during the season will give everybody the lowdown on the actual movie, which debuts on television Halloween Evening on E!, but we thought we’d share the fun we had at the premiere.The Scorned Premiere took place at the Sunset Five in West Hollywood. It’s at the corner of Sunset and Crescent Heights, which should be called Laurel Heights, but whatever. B-side and I decided to head over to check out some of the red carpet.
Here are Josh and Erika from Big Brother. I was thinking about hitting the red carpet saying I was in the reality show “Half-Black Kid in Beijing” to see how many of these jab photographers I could fool, but decided against it.
Johnny Fairplay has arrived! Get the party started. No seriously, he was packing shooters of Grey Goose in his jacket. In the background is the once happening club, Shelter.This dark photo accurately approximates just how dark it was inside.
We were glad to see Jonathan and Victoria show up. Both had minor roles in the movie. You can see them on reality couples Fear Factor early next year.
Scott from Big Brother 5. Say Cheesse!
After the red carpet came the movie. I’ll admit, I was going in with fairly low expectations. I love bad horror films though, so I was eager to go in. B-side, unfortunately, was called to duty of his day job and had to leave. I’ll have to say that as bad horror movies go, this one is passable. Given a proper budget and Lucy Lawless, Les Moonves would air this in primetime on a Sunday. Don’t believe me? How soon we forget:
Click on Lucy and prepare to be amazed.
The fun didn’t stop after the movie, however, as everybody stopped by next door at Sushi Dan’s, which I believe is a local chain. I didn’t get any sushi, but did have some sake shots and some Sapporo.
First picture was Jonny Fairlplay. I was expecting this guy to suck, and in the film he did. I didn’t get to discuss the finer points of mattress scat play with him, but I did learn that he is able to boot and rally. That makes him a winner in my book. The only thing that pissed him off was that the booze wasn’t free.
After Jonny Fairlplay, Howie from Big Brother 6 came by. I never got a chance to meet with him at the Big Brother 6 wrap party, so this was my chance. Jonny Fairplay refused to take the picture, but a nearby person helped out.
Howie had a light saber, but I was wondering about this picture on his shirt. Wasn’t he a Jedi and not a Sith? Howie said he loved and LA and hopes to stick around.
Howie gave me his card and asked me to go to his website. You should check it out if you want a Howie Light Saber or t-shirt.
The next person I accosted said hello to was Michelle from ANTM 4. She and Jonny Fairplay didn’t seem an item any longer, but he goes through models like we go through socks. She was excited because she recently moved to Los Angeles and just signed with an agency
A few weeks ago after a friend’s birthday party at Geisha house, we hit Wendy’s for late night good. It has no significance in this story, but doesn’t that cashier look pissed?
Stepping outside for a moment, I chatted up Rob Cesternino. He thought I should get a picture of Bacherlorette Trish and Paulie Shore. This also saved me the embarrassment of pretending I wanted a picture of Paulie Shore. Thanks Rob!
I did finally get a picture of Trish. She is very attractive in person and I think did a good job in the movie. She is modeling and was very polite in humoring me. I was happy my cheesy line of “WIll you make me the luckiest guy in the world and take a picture with me?” seemed to soften the ice and didn’t make her hurl from how bad it was.
I had to get a picture with Scott. I knew all of his fans woud like an update. Turns out he is great friends with Jonny Fairplay and JP from Survivor. You can see Scott as “Victim” in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel coming out in a few months.
Scott also told me I was invited to one of his gun shows at any time
This is Katie, runner up from Survivor: Palau. She HATES being called the fat Jenna Lewis. I actually had to call B-side to remember her name, but Scott really needed to know, so B-side was glad to help out.
That was it for the evening. I didn’t get everybody was there, but I think you get the highlights. I didn’t get a chance to talk to Stacie J (buy the scorned DVD if you want to see her boobs) and I am sure everybody wanted to know how Trish stratus was doing, but I didn’t get her either. Pamela from Apprentice 2 was there, wearing some bad fishnets. She is HUGE as in tall, and I think she intimidated a lot of people there.
Sadly, it was now about 11:30 and time for me to head back home.
