Handsome John Corbett, the winner of the Christie Peters award, arrived with his gorgeous gal pal of many years, Bo Derek — who is still a #10 in our book. Others in attendance at this star-studded event included Lou Diamond Phillips & his wife, Yvonne Phillips, and the always gracious couple, Game Show Legend, Wink & Sandy Martindale who have more faith & talent than anyone I know.

To top off this busy weekend, we were pleased to attend the book signing for our pal, Rhonda Shear at Barnes & Noble in our own Century City.  Glamour Girl Rhonda, who hosted her own late night movie show on USA network (where I appeared many times,) came out with a tome entitled “Up All Night” From Hollywood Bombshell to Lingerie Mogul. Yes, this former Miss Louisiana and award-winning comedian, now is the builder of a $100 million apparel brand! I attended Rhonda & Van Fagan’s wedding 17 years ago in New Orleans, and it was a real treat to see this highly motivated and philanthropic couple, who now reside in St. Petersburg, Florida & wish them much success with the new book.
