Through the course of the past year, it seems like at any point there would be a headline that came out of the woodwork that read 'Chris Brown and Rihann Reunite.' Well folks, following weeks of rumors, it appears that today is that day.
People began to talk when the two began recording songs together and it continued when they were seen vacationing together in the South of France. But people are definitely talking now after Chris Brown was seen leaving Rihanna's hotel yesterday, the same day which it was announced that Brown and (now former girlfriend) Karrueche Tran were calling it quits.
The Butler Group, consisting of partners Scott Sartiano and Richie Akiva, celebrated the grand opening of 1Oak, their brand new 16,000 square foot nightclub located in the Mirage Hotel over the weekend. The two night celebration not only welcomed the new hotspot to Sin City, but also benefited the GiveLove charity, who received a $50,000 generous donation. GiveLove was founded by Patricia Arquette and Rosetta Getty, with all proceeds going to improve housing and sanitation in poverty-stricken Haiti. Rumors floated around that Katy Perry, fresh off her divorce from Russell Brand, was going to perform. Alas, there was no performance from the blue-haired pop star. Other guests included Markus Molinari, David Arquette, Chris Evans, Christina Milian, Patricia Arquette, Chris Evans, Rosetta and Balthazar Getty, Christina Milian, Michelle Trachtenberg, and Shenae Grimes.
I have had a really fun week! I went to the last Mets night game on Tuesday (say what you want about them this season, but I have faith next season will be their season!! ), they played the Cincinnati Reds. It's no secret that I have a major crush on David Wright. While I always see a lot of Athletes at the clubs, he is one I have never seen and am dying to meet out. I hear from my friends who work for the Mets, he's actually a really nice guy too. David, if you're reading this or if someone who knows David Wright is reading this, PLEASE contact me. I'm so obsessed with you, I want your game worn pants so I can sleep in them. I'm not creepy, I swear…
I'm almost out of my pasta carb coma! One of my most beautiful friends had her birthday party at Box last night. I haven't been there in so long, but let me tell you….ignore all those ugly rumors…..the shows are still beyond normal mental comprehension. I couldn't take pictures, but I literally witnessed a fat lady stabbing her camel toe with a butcher knife. Now I'm sure this was hopefully staged…I at least tell myself that!!!! Beyond that crazy show, a few really talented people really showed that they need to be off the box stage and onto something much more.
Last Wednesday night I went out for a friends birthday. We had dinner at Beauty and Essex in the lower east side. This place is fairly new, and the food is pretty yummy. I had the lobster tacos. And for all you shopoholics like me, there's a small store selling all sorts of random jewelry and odds and ends when you first walk into the restaurant. The hostesses were super nice and even charged my dead phone. Now onto the good stuff… the rest of the night was a giant blur. We went to Avenue after dinner, where we ended up hanging out with Usher and Maxwell. I sang Justin Bieber songs to Usher, I was shocked when he didn't offer me a record deal. Clearly he didn't recognize my raw talent. Around 3am, we all headed over to 1oak and there was surprise performance by Tinie Tempah, the British rapper who has that hit "Written in the Stars." He rapped about 3 songs and disappeared. Jesse Marco was djing at 1oak besides being super cute he's definitely one of the best DJs out there right now. I loved his entire eclectic playlist.
This Wednesday night, Wish NYC, a benefit to raise funds and awareness to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Metro New York, will be hosting their event at 1Oak.
