OMG 3/16/10: Clooney's GF, Elephant Parade, Foursquare Party

OMG on WUSA9 March 16, 2010

WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA)– Oh My GOFF! Angie reports on Kate Winslet’s breakup, George Clooney’s girlfriend has a new TV gig and Giselle returns to modeling after baby. Locally, elephants parade in DC, Metromix throws a Foursquare party and who are the Audrey Bouviers?

DC's New High Society Sorority?

I say sorority because when it comes to women who value fashion, fun and filling the dire holes in our community it takes me back to my college days as an AOII.   But winning Greek week, beer pong olympics or taking $299 all inclusive spring break trips to the Bahamas aren’t part of these girls’ agenda.

They call themselves “The Audrey Bouviers“. Named after hollywood royalty Audrey Hepburn and fashion icon Jackie O (maiden name was Bouvier) this new group of women is all about style, sophistication and serving the community.

Founder Sanam Toossi tells OMG this select group of professional women will commit to 4 big community projects a year that include everything from gardening to serving food. If you’ve got the grace it takes and the heart to give… vist theaudreybouviers.org for more information.

Watch Monday:  OMG Report  on WUSA-TV (CBS) at 5:54AM ET for coverage of The Audrey Bouvier’s kick-off party!

Oh Snap! And the Oscar goes to…

Kevin, Becky, Claudia & Kate

It’s the only Academy sanctioned viewing party in DC. Oscar Night DC 2010 the third year was more glamorous than ever.  You felt amongst stars at the Oscar fitting National Museum of Women in the Arts. My friends fell in love with the champagne glasses lined with honey topped with a fresh sprig of lavender. My guess is that the gorge gowns made for more people watching then Oscar viewing. Sandra, Monique, K. Bigelow and more…  a little acceptance speech for you. We thank you giving us a reason to get decked out, wear uncomfortable kicks, eat fine food and party on a Sunday night. The events proceeds is one of the biggest fundraisers for our area’s Red Cross.

Oh Snap! Dinner is SERVED, Coffee Needed

Thanks Tom Block for inviting me to volunteer with Miriam’s Kitchen. Miriam’s is now opening it’s door to the area’s homeless for free homecooked, healthy dinners 5 days a week. We served 130! I loved the fact that it’s like a restaurant with table seating and fresh flowers! The kitchen which serves free breakfast & lunch too really needs coffee & cereal.
