While on a Sports theme, former San Diego Padre, Tommy Le Vasseur, hit a home run with his new eatery, TommRays in Studio City. Ed Begley Jr., and his lovely wife, Rachelle Carson (she used to be my pilates teacher), and Charlene Tilton were among the beautiful people who attended the event, hosted by another beauty, Carolina Bacardi. Guests were treated to Bacardi Voodo Doll Martinis and feasted on such specialties as Teryiaki Beef Bok Choy, Grilled Scotch Smoked Salmon and Dungeness Mini Crab Cake prepared by Executive chef Maryanne Z.
God Bless Tyra Banks, creator and host of her own talk show, and America's Top Model. The 5'10" supermodel admits to weighing 160 glorious pounds, and agrees that the anorexic stars of today are poor role models indeed. We caught up with her recently at the I Have a Dream Foundation, at their Annual Gospel Brunch at the House of Blues. Trya, along with Debra Martin Chase (Producer of The Princess Diaries), and Silvio Horta (Producer of Ugly Betty), received awards for sharing the foundation's vision to mentor at- risk children in L.A. Other celebs who participated in the event included Jerry O'Connell, Larry & Laurie David, Alexis Bledel and Rebecca Romijn. Right on girl - you are inspiration to us all on the Hollywood Beat.
