Mugged: No White Castle Love in Washington

24 Fans where’s Jack Bauer when you need him? Kal Penn of  “Harold and Kumar” fame got mugged this morning and held up at gunpoint according to TMZ. It happened early this morning while Penn was walking through a Washington DC neighborhood.

The attacker took Penn’s wallet and some other stuff. Doesn’t seem like there are any leads just yet.

Penn who has a passion for acting recently left the industry to pursue a career in politics when Obama got in office.

READ THIS: Buckley’s Story 

A while back I profiled Ingrid King, a local feline master teacher who did Reiki on my dear Atticus. I was so excited to see King’s new book because it’s something that as one reviewer described should be ‘A “must” for everyone who has ever loved a pet’. The story of her beautiful cat Buckley leads us through how our pets teach us to open our hearts to the world.  It reveals lessons learned through the life and eventual death of a beloved friend.

Hear it for NY, NY, NY… Fashion Week

FOX NY's Giovanna Drpic & WUSA's Angie GoffWait til you see the video and pics to come but first a glimpse of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2010. I interviewed Max Azria about his designs for Herve’ Leger and chatted with “the creator” of NYFW Fern Mallis, Senior VP of IMG Fashion. Mallis told me she loved Azria’s BCBG line and thought Carolina Herrera’s show was “beautiful”. Who was she impressed with? Mallis says  “Rebecca Taylor”.  Mallis also said she really liked all the patchwork she saw in different shows. Looks like that and bleached out denim will be big trends this season.

Along with the shows came the parties. My news gal pal FoxNY’s Giovanna Drpic joined me at the Ugly Betty/Elle Magazine event at The Capitale. The entire cast was there including a stunning Vanessa Williams in a bold stripe dress that hugged her figure. We wrapped the evening at “The Gates” and good friend entertainment marketer Danny Estrada who introduced us to the so sweet Nole’ Marin of  Top Model/True Beauty fame.(below)

Across the runway at Herve’ Leger I spotted NY Socialite (but Richmond native) Tinsley Mortimer in pink… who’s reality show in the making is rumored to have bumped DC’s “Blonde Charity Mafia” off the CW.

At the show I ran into my DC friends Charlie Paret, Erwin Gomez and James Packard-Gomez.

Oh Snap! No boys allowed

It was LADIES ONLY at L2 Lounge in Georgetown Wednesday night. Post-Christmas kudos to Kate McMillan for throwing the ultimate pamperfest. The “Holiday Survival Party” helped DCnistas detox from over shopping, cooking, stressing and overeating. Free manicures, pedis, massages and even readings by a real psychic were on hand! Petite bags of popcorn and the playing of chick flicks made the party complete.
