This occurred back in May.. if already posted and I missed seeing it, please excuse the redundancy. That said... what attracted me to this event was the ridiculous photos that surfaced while doing an image search. What's funny is that after the legit celebrities highlighted in this story, she does get top mention over all the other also-rans because they listed the attendees alphabetically. Must have made her day. Incidentally this is not real news, but a press release.
