"The Life And Times Of Prophecy"
Lupus LA held their annual Celebrity Poker Tournament and Party, “Get Lucky For Lupus LA” at the Petersen Automotive Museum last night, and quite a bit of Hollywood turned out for the cause.
The event was sponsored by Coca-Cola, and brought out folks from all four corners of the Industry. Some of the guests included Karina Smirnoff, Peta Murgatroyd, Kim Lee, Melissa Molinaro, Shanna Moakler, Verne Troyer, Quinton Aaron, Slash from Guns N’ Roses, Ryan Cabrera, Camryn Manheim and Melissa Joan Hart.
Other folks included Josh Altman from Million Dollar Listing with his girlfriend Heather Bilyeu, Borat star Ken Davitian, Omar Benson Miller from Eminem’s 8 Mile and 50 Cent’s Get Rich Or Die Tryin’, Shaun Toub from Iron Man and The Last Airbender, James Denton from Desparate Housewives, Jose Canseco Industry newcomer, Rochelle Vallese from Alien Armageddon and a slew of others.
One expected celeb that everyone was hoping for, but never showed, was Jennifer Love Hewitt.
And while all came out to support such a great cause as the fight against Lupus, I couldn’t help but have a moment of remembrance for Christopher Wallace, more greatly known as the Notorious B.I.G., whose life came to a close in front of the Petersen Automotive Museum on March 9th, 1997, and putting a close to the East Coast / West Coast War which also caused the loss of Tupac Shakur.
Yet another night to remember.
When we stopped to chat with Kurupt after Snoop was Honored at the BMI Event this weekend, he had a lot to say about The Doggfather’s Honors. And he also answered Tupac’s Question: “How Long Will They Mourn Me”

This weekend was definitely poppin off at the mouth. And one of those memorable moments happened down in South Bay / Orange County at Huntington Beach‘s “AVEC Nightclub“, which saw the likes of Kim Lee hosting their Hangover 2 Party, and getting some freaky visitation by Aubrey O’Day.
Yes, Yes, things got a little freaky in the VIP, but come on now, girls is just having a fine time when fine meets wine. So I’m sure you’re already hearing fakeness that these two are girlfriends now. I guess that’s all people know what to write about.
But Aubrey is definitely not afraid of letting it be known that when it comes to Aubrey, She’s All About Kim… havin her peeps bust out their own lil Kim pics, and sharing a few laughs and giggles when asked if she’d get with Kim.
But Kim and Aubrey definitely weren’t the only ones having fun. Eric Zuly was ever present, along with Wesley Jonathan who’s got loads of projects comin up quick. And last but definitely not the Lee-st, Yasmin Lee stepped on through. With Kim Lee giving out Hangovers Too with a sip of Grey Goose that was made for you.
Oh yes, and definitely of course, Katrina Chubarova was addin extra sweet game to the place as well. And lucky for all you folks around the country and the world, Kim AND Katrina will soon be coming to even more clubs near you now that they’re the first official DJ Group signed by The Black Eyed Peas.
So folks let this be a lesson to you too. Live your life to the fullest, enjoy yourselves cause as once said by Bushwick Bill on Dr. Dre’s “The Chronic” Album:
There’s 3 Types Of People In This World
Those Who Don’t Know What Happened
Those Who Wonder What Happened
And People Like Us From The Streets That Make Things Happen

So this is a special post I’ve been meaning to write about for quite some time now, and that’s about Aubrey O’Day suckin up all the Oxygen… You hear that? That’s the sound of you not breathing !!
Not forrealz. But let’s just start this off by saying that the year 2011 has definitely been kicked off to a great start… if your name is Aubrey O’Day. Aubrey saw the start of her own reality show on Oprah Winfrey’s Oxygen network, and her premiere was the highest rated in the network’s history. This is no small feat, as this is the first reality show from Oxygen to real make its mark into the mainstream before introducing all of its future up and coming projects. The Oxygen will soon include shows with Paris Hilton, Brooke Mueller, Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott, and not to mention, another one of my good friends, Jaimie Hilfiger.
I’ve known Aubrey for a couple years now through mutual friends and industry events, and I have the pleasure in saying I’ve partied with the girl, hung with the girl and gotten to know that she is nothing but an absolute sweetheart. In this biz, that is incredibly difficult to find. Not only do the circumstances of success tend to get to the head of those in the limelight, but the difficulties and stresses from this world can also change people for the worse. It is clear to me that Aubrey was raised right, and she intends to stay that way.
She has come a long way from her days of Danity Kane, and is now starting to see the full splendor of her own career come to fruition, as a strong minded woman with a straight head on her shoulders, ready to tackle to the world and all the shady men that run it. Nothing in this world says sexy and sweet, than Aubrey O’Day when her eyes sneak a peek.
On top of her newly successful show “All About Aubrey”, she is also seeing the beginning of her solo music career. Aubrey just recently signed a solo recording deal with SRC/Universal Motown, and her first single, “Automatic” made it to the Top 40 downloads on iTunes in just a matter of a few hours and a little help from her truly loyal friends and fans.
But don’t let the sweet and sexy fool you. Aubrey is ready to take charge in this man’s world, and she isn’t taking “Man” for an answer. She was recently spotted outside of Katsuya, giving her girlfriend’s shady companion more than just a mouth and a shove full outside of Katsuya in Hollywood. If I were you, I wouldn’t just think twice of doing Aubrey dirty, but as we now know, you should definitely not even consider crossing one of her good friends… Or you will get it !
Yeah.. That’s me screaming out all crazy, as always.
And just recently, Aubrey was seen outside of Mr. Chows in Beverly Hills, just one day after the hugely successful debut of Automatic on iTunes. She was seen telling the media to reach out to those in support of her to convince her record company to shoot a video for her debut single. Aubrey of course has had her fill of difficult Executives in the past of her music career *cough* PUFFY *cough* . But at this point in her life, it is obvious that Aubrey is ready to take charge and ready to press forward, even if that means calling out those that pay you when she knows they’re not giving her the focus she needs.
And if friendships and loyalty mean anything to you, than her friendship with Jenna Jameson should speak volumes. A woman like Jenna, who is at the top of her industry, is not one who can just trust anybody. So for her to have a friend who has stood by her for years, in Aubrey, shows that Aubrey is definitely somebody that you would wish was in your circle, and never left.
So here’s to Aubrey, one of the most amazing women in the industry. And with the fortitude and vision she is beginning to show in just the early stages of her career that is ready to take off like never before… There is no doubt in my mind that Aubrey will soon become her own Executive, calling her own shots, filming her own shoots, and not waiting for a single man to tell her yes.
The “Yes” is yours.
P.S. Aubrey always gives love in return:

This week we saw two major events amongst celebrity couples. 1) Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes got married in Malibu, California. 2) Amy Smart announced her engagement to Carter Oosterhouse from HGTV’s “Carter Can”
What makes these two couples worth talking about in this post? Eddie, LeAnn and Amy all dumped their longtime former companions for someone more prominent in the industry.
Eddie was married to Brandi Glanville, a make-up artist who is also the mother of his two children. The two were married for 8 years before Eddie began his alleged affair with LeAnn, also married at the time to Dean Sheremet, also for 8 years !!
So they both dumped their spouses of 8 years, to get with the more prominent, more famous and wealthier person.
Now, on to Amy Smart. Amy was dating actor Brandon Williams, and the two had been together more than half their lives, since they were teenagers in junior high. They were at once engaged, but ended their relationship. Then Amy meets Carter in November, and the two are already on the path to tying the knot. Sucks for Brandon who’s been puttin in work over half his life.
All that’s to say is, most celebrities in the industry will do you like Jennifer Lopez. They’ll ditch out on the Ojani Noas and Chris Judds of their lives, to get with the Puffys, Diddys and Marc Anthonys.
If you’re dating a celebrity, and you’re a non-celebrity… beware your 8th year.
And since this is the first ever “Lesson Learned” post, here’s Alicia Keys and John Mayer with “Lesson Learned”
daamnit if the entire West Coast didn’t come out for Snoop’s party to launch Blast from the makers of Colt 45 and Snoop’s new album “Doggumentary” which was released on MySpace earlier this week… Kurupt, Warren G, Too Short, DJ Quik and … wait, hold up !! Paris and Nicky Hilton?
Now if this were to have happened back in the day, Snoop might’ve risked losing some “street cred”… but lucky for him, not only is he a superstar in his own right, but Hip-Hop culture is completely intertwined now with Pop Culture. As a matter of fact, having Paris and Nicky at your Hip-Hop party probably adds to your street cred, cause it shows just how much your music crosses all boundaries.
And boy, was Colt 45 really trying their hardest to sell that “Blast”… They sure did the damn thang… They even brought out 101 Damenations lookin fine and crowdin up the entire sidewalk across Sunset Blvd. outside of Trousdale, where the event was being held.
Outside of the club, DJ Quik gave love to Nate Dogg’s families to the cameras… and in addition to that, it’s lookin like DJ Quik may just be down to work with the kid. Stay tuned and I’ll keep you posted on that shizz.
Other celebrity guests included Ryan Cabrera, Megan Goode, Chris Evans, and Natasha Henstridge, as well as the always beautiful Ashlan Gorse from E!. You know that chick is tall as fu*k!!
And you know what, it def felt like an old school West Coast Gangsta Rap party since there was like 6 squad cars of sheriffs outside, just itchin and waitin for some whoridaz.
Luckily, there wasn’t one. Keep the peace ladies and gentlemen
btw, u know people have been wondering why Snoop would release his new album on MySpace. Execs were telling the company they need to turn it around or else… I guess this is their first step in heading back into our culture… and they must’ve paid Snoop some major loot $$$
