America's Next Top Model - Season 20 Finale Party

With just a few more episodes remaining in America's Next Top Model season 20, recently eliminated contestant Chris Hernandez joined other models and entertainment industry VIPs for a party at New York City club Greenhouse to celebrate a successful run and the season finale of cycle 20.  This season will be remembered as the first in which male models have been allowed to participate, and the Guys vs. Girls theme seemed to be a hit.  While the remaining finalists Jourdan, Marvin and Cory, as well as show founder and former supermodel Tyra Banks weren't able to join the party, it was still a great time with lots of beautiful people and great drinks including Jose Cuervo's new Cinge cinnamon flavored tequila and Zing vodka. Some of the VIP guests included Karen Gravano, Kidear Youmans, Marissa Sabatelli, Nate Ryan, Gigi Lopez, Jason Christopher Peters, Elizabeth Ann Vashisht, and Chanel Omari.  Remember to tune in to the CW next Friday, November 14th for Part 2 of the Finale to see who will be chosen as America's Next Top Model.

VH1 Save the Music BLU Carpet event presented by Ciroc and Rich Valdes

I recently attend the VH1 Save the Music BLU Carpet event at Son Cubano in West New York, NJ.  The annual event, hosted by Rich Valdes and sponsored this year by Ciroc vodka provides a great platform for emerging performing artists to gain exposure to an influential audience and raises funds to help ensure music education remains a part of the curriculum in schools.  The venue this year was the upscale, waterfront Cuban restaurant, Son Cubano which has amazing views of the Manhattan NYC skyline.  There was a huge turnout with artists such as Jaclyn Rae Cetrulo, Chelley, J. Ross Parelli Murdakkh and Sensato.  Some of my favorite reality show stars were there as well including Elizabeth Ann Vashisht, Angelina Pivarnik, Gina Marie and Freddie Robinson were in the audience as well.
