Luck Be A Lady was the theme of a "Very Posh Tea" when Adrianne Zuker (Days of Our Lives) hosted the Beautiful Babes of Soaps at Doug Arango's Restaurant on Melrose. Among the attendees were Judith Chapman (Young & the Restless); McKenzie Westmore (Passions) and Shanelle Workman (Bold & the Beautiful). I guess I represented The Tired and Poor!

We were all instructed to wear a fabulous Posh T shirt with a jeweled Four Leaf Clover, and the phrase "Feelin Lucky" inscribed on the front. Noted that with one exception, all the gals wore a "small". Does everyone in Hollywood wear a size two?

Juliette Mills
Others feasting on baked scones with Devonshire cream, and an assortment of tea sandwiches and champagne, included Juliet Mills who stars as Tabitha Lenox in Passions. Juliet just returned from London where she celebrated her father, John Mills, 92nd Birthday. Did you know that the famed actor is listed in "The Top 100 Movie Stars of All Time) and that he and his wife of 60 years, Mary also renewed their marriage vows.

Lord Richard Attenborough and wife Sheila attended Mills Birthday soiree, although they still are in deep mourning for the death of their daughter Jane, and their year old granddaughter, Lucy, who were lost in the Tsunami in Thailand. The Director of Ghandi, which won eight Oscars in 1983, and Mills are lifelong friends, and although they were grieving, they wanted to pay tribute to the venerable actor Emmy, Golden Globe and Sag Award winner Tony Shalhoub, who stars as Monk in the award winning series, was master of ceremonies for an "Evening in the City of Light" sponsored by the Junior League of Los Angeles. The black tie event brought out a slew of socialites who support a myriad of charities in the L.A. area.

Evelyn, Tony & Wife
Evelyn Lauder was honored with their Lifetime Achievement Award. Evelyn, Director of the Lauder Corporation, is founder of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation – devoted exclusively to funding research to treat this dread disease.

Lauder presented everyone with a huge bottle of "Beyond Passion" perfume and body lotion. The best item we received in a goody bag since the Oscars.

Kudos to Lisa Miller, President and all the hard working ladies in the Junior League for a most elegant evening. Even Michael Eisner (former head of the House of Mouse) was smiling broadly when he learned that the League had met their goal of raising more than $600,000 for the year.
