The Carousel Ball – Jo-Lo & Marc Anthony Rocked It!

Monday, 25 October, 2010 / Published in Blog

Hey everyone,

Last Saturday night was the fabulous Carousel of Hope Ball, an event Barbara Davis puts on every other year to raise money for a cure for Diabetes.  She does an amazing job, and oh boy, does she pull out the stars!  This year at her table alone there was Halle Berry with the extremely hot Olivier Martinez, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony – they performed a song together and they were dazzling!  Glady’s Knight – who sang my favorite “Midnight Train To Georgia.” And the dynamite Akon, who also performed and had the room of Hollywood movers and shakers in a frenzy!!

Jay Leno as the master of ceremonies was a riot.  He’d put together a short film of himself playing everyone from The Situation to Lady Gaga, and he was brilliantly funny.

Here and there were Rod Stewart and his lovely pregnant wife, Penny.  Quincy Jones, Berry Gordy, Paris and Nicky Hilton, Sherry Lansing, sister Joan C., Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin, Judge Judy, Kathy Griffin, Jane Fonda, even Brandy and the sexy Maks!!

I sat at a table with Randy Jackson and his gorgeous wife, Raquel Welsh – looking every bit a major diva, Alana Stewart with Nigel Lythgoe.  A great time was had by all, and if you want to view some of the pics I took with my trusty Canon camera – check out the photo section on my site.

Whew!  It was quite a weekend, what with that and a dozen nine year olds over at my house for a pool party!!

Other than that I caught up on “The Event” and “Chase,” and of course “Dexter.” Soo good!!  And wrote.  “Goddess of Vengeance” is making excellent progress!

Love the rain in L.A. this week.  Reminds me of London, and it makes a welcome change from 90 degree heat!

Until next time, stay safe and happy,

Jackie
