“Hey…,” he says, “I’ve written about a celebrity encounter here, at my blog… but since nobody actually knows where my blog is, it’s still nice and fresh… thought you might be interested in it for the Wow Report (which is a great site, by the way).” We thank him and it’s really true that flattery will get you somewhere. Here’s what Brachish has to say on his blog:
Normally I wouldn’t devote this much space to picking on a movie that’s already getting a proper spanking from so many other critics as it is, but since I was lucky enough to attend the New York premier of “After the Sunset” at the Ziegfeld on Tuesday night, I thought, “Hey, what the hell, let’s kick this flick while it’s down.”
Despite being stuck between hyper-happy, super-friendly, ADD puppy-dog director Brett Ratner, hip-hop and clothing mogul Russell Simmons, and Russell’s super-tall, super-hot model/designer wife while I road the escalator out of the theatre to the New Line Cinema SUV’s that were waiting to take us to the big premiere party at the NYC Warner Brothers building, I couldn’t bring myself to talk to Brett, because the only appropriate way to start a chat would have been congratulating him on his film, but I find his films to be so second-rate that I began choking when I thought about kissing ass…. and I also couldn’t say anything snippy or sarcastic, ’cause I wanted to drink the man’s top-shelf free booze.
So off to the after party I went, and drink I did – shoulder-to-shoulder with Alan Cumming and his boy toy. After getting good and hammered, I later wandered into the director’s private after-after-party, where I spilled a drink on the coats of some celebrities (I’ll likely be barred from celebrity bashes in the future) and kept not seeing Salma Hayek every time she passed by — I never even saw her once, although I’m told that she and Penelope Cruz walked right by me multiple times — I must have been too boozed to notice the short-statured, well-endowed starlets (back to hard-drugs for me, then, ‘cause the John Barleycorn is making me near-sited). I also never spotted Don “Devil in a Blue Dress” Cheadle.
But I did see Reverend Run and various other celebs.
