The scene could have been entitled "The Prince and the Paint Brush" - but in this case the paintbrush was a jet airplane, and Prince Jurgen Von Anhalt used the gale force of the winds, spewed from the engine, to create a masterpiece. The event was held at the new Million Air Los Angeles Executive Airport, and among the enthralled guests were Maria Conchita Alonzo, Dennis Cole (who acted as master of ceremonies), Sammy Davis, Jr.'s attractive widow, Altovise Davis and Barbara Lazaroff - partner of Wolfgang Puck of Spago, who provided an assortment of elegant hors d'oeuvres.

It was so cool (in more ways than one) witnessing the unusual performance - that Lou Ferrigno (The Incredible Hulk) said he needed a sweater. Any chance of finding one that would fit the Hulk? Others overwhelmed by the synthesis of power, timing and environment; which created the unusual texture and structure, included producer Pamela Shae , and Leyla Milani (Deal or No Deal)

At the conclusion of the program, both the Prince and Princess Tarinan were covered with paint - but the results were well worth it. The paintings are in collections, museums and office buildings world-wide. A great start to their world tour, which will end in Moscow on the Red Square..

We again spent Oscar night at the Beverly Hills Hotel Crystal Ballroom at the Night of 100 Stars Black Tie Dinner Viewing Gala. After 18 years, we feel like we are sharing Oscar Night with "family" - but in this case, the family includes scads of former Oscar winners and nominees. Norby Walters, veteran music agent, reprised his role as Producer and Dinner Chairman, and among the celebs in attendance were Martin Landau, James Cromwell, the Carradine brothers - looking somber as usual, Pr wiz, Edward Lozzi, Daniel Baldwin, and Hercules himself, Kevin Sorbo. Particularly enjoyed chatting with Tony Shaloub (Monk) who seems to be on a perpetual honeymoon with his actress wife, Brooke Adams, (Invasion of the Body Snatchers) and gorgeous Tia Carrere, who was decked out in a flaming red gown, which seemed to be the color of the evening. Tia, who shared the screen with Mike Myers in Wayne's World, and Schwarzenegger in True Lies, first love is music, and she recently received a Grammy nomination in the "Best Hawaiian Music Album" category

The late Anna Nicole Smith was a frequent guest at Norby's parties, and this year she was well represented by her baby daughter, Danielynn and daddy, Larry Birkhead. Would you believe it, he posed with a personalized pacifier for his daughter? To add to the mix, even Prince Frederick Von Anhalt (no relation to Jurgen), who claimed to be Dannielynn's father, was in attendance - as well as Zsa Zsa Gabor's daughter, Francesca Hilton.
