Joining Stephanie on the red carpet was her twin sister Valerie Bauer, visiting from Florida.
Needless to say, the fans LOVED the blonde beauty!!
I get a few of these emails a month, from girls I have never met, wanting my advice on breaking into the business. I am so flattered and eager to help, ALWAYS- but the thing that always comes to mind is Sarah Karges and how she was this girl for me. She met me, a stranger who had emailed her, for lunch when I visited LA from Florida. She gave me advice, just as these young girls are asking me to do now. Thank you Sarah and I am constantly grateful for you! I know this worked for me- from across the country, I searched and searched female hosts I admired, PA's, camera guys- anyone in LA who could help me learn! My gumption paid off, and I am so thrilled and humbled to see other young girls doing the same, and nothing brings me greater joy than to help them!!
Check out some pictures from my photo shoot with the amazing Melina Ruiz doing my hair and makeup! She did such a wonderful job; I was so happy with the look! All you girls out there should use her for your next shoot or event! Here's her info:
This weekend I covered the red carpet at The Hall of Game Awards in La, honoring all the hottest superstars in sports!! I interviewed all biggest athletes in the biz, from Matt Kemp to Shaquille O'Neal. I also got an exclusive interview with the most popuar, in-demand guy in sports right now- Tim Tebow! Tim and I actually went to the University of Florida together, and I had not seen him since I graduated! He rarely does interviews, let alone on the red carpet, so I was able to get the rare opportunity to ask him what everyone is dying to know! He talked to me about those rumors that he is dating all the leading ladies in Hollywood! (The list of celebs goes on and on!) Among other things, we also discussed the possibility of him doing a reality show.....Tune in to Hollyscoop's national TV show this weekend to see my interview. Check your local listings for times. I will also be posting the interview on this blog in a few days!
Last night I had the extreme pleasure of covering the red carpet at The 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards!! What an AMAZING experience! There's nothing quite like old Hollywood glamour and style at a traditionally fabulous awards show!! I interviewed stars on the red carpet at the NBC Universal after-party. To check out my interviews with Elle McPhearson, Kendra & Hank Baskett, Jeannie Mai, and many more- go to Hollyscoop.com or check out my YouTube page!
Last night I attended The 2012 People's Choice Awards! I had never been to this awards show before and I loved it because it is the FANS that vote! So cool! Ironically enough, I sat in the front row next to the cast of "Castle," who won an award that night. A few days later, I was in one of their episodes! We filmed at Paramount in sunny LA, but the scenes were made to look like a cold winter in NYC!! At the awards, Neil Patrick Harris also sat next to me. It was great fun to see his excitement when he won an award! His show is hilarious, and now I am an even bigger fan. This was one of my favorite awards shows yet!
Last night I attended the CNN Heroes Awards in Los Angeles. Wow! What an inspiring and heartwarming night! I sat in the front row next to Jerry Seinfeld, who was a presenter that night; and both of us, as well as all the other attendees, were moved-- practically to tears! (Okay, I shed a few :) The ceremony was both touching and eye-opening. Being there further motivated me to GIVE BACK and take action in this world! The star-studded event was a wonderful tribute to Americans that truly make a difference! Please take the time to view the honoree's stories on CNN.com, and donate time, money, or simply prayers and well wishes to organizations that inspire you!
I just wrapped filming on the show that Steve-O and worked on together. It's called 'Killer Karaoke' and will air on TruTV in January. The concept is 'Fear Factor' meets 'Don't Forget The Lyrics!' Everyone knows Steve-O is a wild card, so hilarity ensues as he hosts this thrilling singing competition! THINK: Electrocution, Snakes, Scorpions, and Gators!! I was Steve's Model Assistant/Co-Host and I am still traumatized! :) It was an absolute pleasure to work with Steve-O! We had met a few times, and did a skit together recently when we sat next to one another at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards. He is always a joy to be around and remains one of the nicest, coolest, most genuine celebrities in my book! Plus, I got to play with all his scary creepy crawly reptiles on set! :) Look for us on TruTV!
My, how unexpected life's turn of events can be!! Two weeks ago, I sat at the table next to my FAVORITE entertainment reporter and TV host, Maria Menounos. I was giddy over meeting my professional "idol!" The very next day, she tweets me (yes, tweets!) asking if I would like to be a host for her AfterBuzz TV live shows. She got me in contact with her program director Phil, and boom!...Fast forward to tonight, and I just got off the air, co-hosting the "Bad Girls Club" after-show. I was only there to observe the programming for the first time, but after meeting with the evening's host, Maria's boyfriend and co-creator of AfterBuzz, Keven Undergaro, he asked me to co-host the show with him. It was so much fun!! Even though I have not been keeping up with all my TiVoed episodes, I was able to jump in and give my opinion on all the gals and the craziness that ensues as the season continues. Everybody at AfterBuzz is so cool and truly loves all TV goodness as I do!! My first episode had over 1,000 Live listeners! WooHoo! Now I will be hosting on many other after-show episodes! I will keep you posted with my programming schedule! :)

Tonight, The Roast of Charlie Sheen airs on Comedy Central, and take it from someone who was there---it was hilarious! I had a prime view of the madness. (Look for me when you're watching- I am right at the front table :) All the hottest celebs were sitting right behind me-- Slash (Love!), Kristin Cavallari, Maria Menounos, Brooke Mueller, and many more! However, Charlie Sheen himself was a huge let down! His calm demeanor and politeness towards all his Roasters was disappointing to say the least. Mike Tyson, on the other hand, can now be considered "the new Charlie Sheen!" His blubbering on about pointless nonsense, mixed with whatever he was drinking/taking, made for a very interesting show. I do wonder how much of that will be played on the air.... And more importantly, I wonder if people will think that the front table I was sitting at was a table full of Charlie's 'goddesses' I sure hope not! And P.S.- Mike Tyson DID break Steve-O's nose! But you will have to just watch tonight and see for yourself! :)
Last night I attended the VH1 Do Something! Awards!! It was so much fun and so very inspirational. Last year, I covered the red carpet at this awards show for Hollyscoop. I got to interview the biggest celebs and find out their thoughts on giving back and how they contribute to charities. Stars like Christina Applegate, AnnaLynne McCord, and Alyssa Milano shared with me their stories of giving. This year, as an invited guest, it was a whole new world inside! I had an amazing seat up front by Kim Kardashian, Justin Bieber, David Beckham, Will Farrell, Olvia Wilde, Demi Lovato, Tyra Banks, and so many other hot celebs. It was a wonderful night ALL about giving back. It airs this Thursday night on VH1, so don't miss it!

Well, I hosted my first Reality TV show!!! It was such an AMAZING experience. Unfortunately, production is completely confidential for Network TV, so I can't give any details about the show. So here are a few pics (you can view more on my Facebook Fan Page)....and what I can say is: This was a reality show competition, so all the competitors moved into a mansion in the Hollywood Hills for the weekend. We filmed the entire show in three days time, so the hours were CRAZY! I worked 16 hour days, but I loved every second of it. I hosted the challenges and eliminations, and brought in celebrity guest judges to give their input on my eliminations. (Picture Credits: Claudia Jordan & Rona Gonzales) The producer and directors said that I was the best host ever, and I have to say-- I know I rocked it! :) (You have to be a little cocky to succeed in this business...IF you can put your money where your mouth is and PROVE IT!) I must say, I am addicted to hosting reality TV now! BRING IT ON!!
Last night I got to sit FRONT ROW at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards!! I got to sit IN FRONT of all the celebrities! Wow- how lucky am I!? I was also in the Green Laser bit with the Jackass guys! (Notice Leighton Meester and Katie Cassidy in the shot behind me too!) :) Check out the full video of me in the Jackass bit on my Facebook Fan Page! Just click on the Facebook Icon to the left. I had such an amazing time!!!
Last night, I had the pleasure of hosting on the red carpet at the New Filmmakers LA for MCB Hollywood News! The event was at the famous Sunset Gower Studios. It was SO interesting and exciting to work in such a historical landmark in the heart of Hollywood! Before I hit the red carpet, I got to watch the screenings of the short films with the directors, producers, and actors themselves. Two of the films were American, one was from Poland, and one (my favorite!) was from Japan. I must say I have a new LOVE for short films! They ranged from 5 minutes to 30 minutes and they get to the point, while at the same time drum up every kind of emotion inside you! The short Japanese film really tugged at my heart strings, but each one had a direct, raw way of affecting it's viewers. A true joy to watch! After the screenings, I chatted up tons of the guys in the biz, including "Die Hard 2" and "Cliffhanger director Renny Harlin! (He wasn't nearly as intimidating as I thought he would be... :)
New Filmmakers LA is a non-profit organization designed to showcase innovative works by emerging filmmakers from around the world. It provides a forum where filmmakers can be recognized for their contributions, have open audience discussions about their projects and connect with industry professionals for insight on distribution, production, acquisition and representation.
Last night I covered the red carpet at the New Media Film Festival in Hollywood for MCB Hollywood News! Celebs Kristen Bell, Martin Sheen, Jason Alexander and many more, had starring roles in many of the films up for awards. Dubbed the "Facebook for the Sundance crowd," the festival was a gathering for film makers competing for a $12,000 grand prize, as well as respect from companies such as Pixar, UTA, and Industrial Light & Magic. The video will be up soon!!

Last night, Avalon Theater in West Hollywood, hosted the Sexy Rocks show. The show was sponsored by -my favorite- SexyHair Products...you know, BigSexyHair, StraightSexyHair, CurlySexyHair, ect.... I was lucky enough to be one of the six models they cast for the show. I was also the only one that was lucky enough NOT to have my precious locks chopped off. Although the hairdressers were FABULOUS, I was not ready to chop mine due to other projects I have in the works. Instead, I got to rock a killer, sky-high updo! Folks flew in for the show from all over the US, and I modeled for about a thousand photos. Not to mention the hours that the girls and I spent in Jerry Lewis' awesome 70's style dressing room for hair, makeup, and backstage fun! The night was a a huge success!! (And thanks to SexyHair products for ALL the free loot they gave me!!!)
I filmed my first news piece as an official RESIDENT of Los Angeles! Pretty exhilarating! :) I shot a Hollywood Weekend Update, as there was TONS of news to indulge in this weekend! (ie- ROYAL WEDDING!!!) Marcy and Simone, the production gals at CMEG were great, and my segment went off without a hitch---except the minor wardrobe malfunction...wearing a belt that matches the green screen, therefore making it nonexistent! Oy!
For strictly sentimental reasons, I am posting my first news script in Hollywood :)
