On a sunny afternoon in West Hollywood, I find myself at Here Lounge as one of the honorary co-hosts for Woody Woodbeck's awesome 2nd Annual "Reality Check" benefit for Equality California. I am posting a few highlights, including the video snapshot above and the clip of James Alsop from "Step It Up And Dance" giving us an off-the-hook performance.
Michael Silas and James Alsop from "Step It Up And Dance," enjoy the sun with a fellow dancer. Fellow honorary co-host Sean Patrick Lewis and the amazing Woody Woodbeck smile for the cameras. I cozy up to designer Nick Verreos and socialite Jonathan Chang. (Nick has the most perfect facial hair I have ever seen!)
"Celebrity Rehab" is filming at the event. I guess this is the "pre-rehab" part because Reese Allbritton helps Nikki McKibbin down some vodka while Amanda Ireton, Heather Chadwell and Reality Cares founder Todd Michael Krim look on.
Alec Mapa, "America's Gaysian Sweetheart" arrives and shows us his wedding band. Lisa Chang shows off her accessories: Dior, Chanel and Andrew Stum. Triple threat singer/dancer/actor Kevin Stea of "Naked Boys Singing" gets some love from Ms. Chang. We might have to re-christen her fan-site "Lisa Chang: Inch by Inch" if I devote any more coverage to the men, shoes and jewelry in her life.
La Coacha stops by to shoot an episode of "Gaywalking" which you can see on her YouTube channel. It includes a shout-out from me to Ellen DeGeneres! Celebrity Image Consultant Daniel DiCriscio puckers up, and Bravo's "Workout" studs Brian Peeler and JD Jordan raise eyebrows.
