BRAND NEW ON E!
Since I'm already in Malibu, I decide to stop by the Polaroid Beach House for the Entourage screening. I say goodbye to Giuliana and drive down to the Colony. It's a totally different atmosphere from the bridal shower. The ocean waves are drowned out by Snoop Dogg's "Drop It Like It's Hot," and stylish TV personalities are replaced by older men and way younger girlfriends.
I'm referring to James Woods and Ashley Madison, both of whom appeared on the HBO hit last season. Despite their 40-year age difference, the odd couple appears to be having fun. At least until Ashley spills a drink on her man. James plays it cool for the paparazzi but gives Ash the cold shoulder, focusing his attention on music honcho Scott Storch. Guess that's what happens when grandpas date children.
Jeremy Piven also enjoys the company of younger gals. He's surrounded by a group of three hotties for a good portion of the party. The Piv can pull it off, though—he plays an agent, after all.
Meanwhile, Brandon Davis walks around chain smoking, and Rex Lee gets camera happy with a gal-pal before saying hello to Kevin Connolly. The costars chat for a while before Kevin darts to the bar in his all-white attire. He's scruffier than normal, but the look is totally working for him. Some girl coyly asks if he's a natural redhead and the two start talking. Nice pickup line.
The East Coast feed of the show starts playing on every TV in the house, but the men of the hour chill outside. They already know what's happening, and from the looks of it, they're having much more fun amid the guests downing Rolling Rock beer and Playboy energy drinks. And they're not the only ones. "I'm TiVoing it at home," a partygoer next to me says. "I'll just watch it after I'm smashed."
Some people, however, do try to catch a glimpse. Occupying couches on the patio and munching on yummy pies from Stone Fire Pizza Co., they watch Turtle dress up in a bunny suit. (If you didn't catch the show last night, I won't spoil it for you, but the costume was pink, furry and vaguely disturbing.)
I'm disappointed Kevin Dillon couldn't make it, but I guess I can see him on the little screen back home. In the meantime, I'll just have to settle for socializing with Ari Gold. Maybe later we can hug it out.
