Tensions ran high at on October 20th when OpenSky presented Perez Hilton’s “One Night In New York City” when Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Kim Granatell showed up as her TV rival Caroline Manzo’s children Chris, Albie and Lauren were walking the red carpet. While the Manzo’s continued posing for pictures, Kim refused to step on the carpet until they were clear, opting instead to pose for pictures off the carpet with her new SOUL by Ludacris headphones and at the Brita Filter For Good Music Project booth. Just as photographers realized they were getting caught in the middle Real Housewives of New Jersey drama, the Manzo family rushed off the carpet to catch a live set from Jersey Shore’s DJ Pauly D. Missing out on all of the drama, Real Housewives of New York’s Sonja Morgan made a late appearance on the red carpet telling guests she had skipped out on her family’s charity gala to show up and support her friend Perez Hilton. The self-proclaimed philanthropist was overheard telling a friend that she “left the baroness for this event” before they debated whether to “hunt for rich boys” at The Regis or the Boom Boom Room.
One of the first to arrive to OpenSky presents Perez Hilton’s “One Night In New York City,” Jersey Shore’s DJ Pauly D was eager to walk the carpet and hit the stage before rushing out for his show’s finale live party. The evening was going according to schedule until the arrival of his costar Ronnie Ortiz-Magro. Though the TV guidos are notorious for butting heads, Ronnie waited on the side of the stage during Pauly D’s performance hoping to grab a few pics together afterwards. Rushing straight from the stage to his car, Pauly D completely missed his patiently waiting costar who had been fist pumping throughout his set. Leaving a few minutes later, Ronnie was overheard saying he had “just texted” Pauly about meeting up later at their finale live party before grabbing a UV Vodka drink.
Before performing at OpenSky presents Perez Hilton’s “One Night In New York City,” the dapper trio of Boyz II Men had to deal with a minor case of Bieber Fever. Though the R&B crooners are typically the ones doing the wooing, the group fell head over heels for Justin Bieber while recording a track with him for their new album, saying that he was “one of the most real people” they had ever met. The Bieber charm had clearly rubbed off on them as they took the stage and won the hearts of every female in the crowd, tossing red roses to their fans as they sang classics, including “I’ll Make Love To You” and “End of the Road.” Guess they are not the only ones liking the young artist right now, as DJ Pauly D arrived in a Bieber shirt snacking on pop chips.
From the red carpet to the stage, Mary J. Blige stole the show as she walked the carpet in a sexy glittery Versace jumpsuit, Mary J. was overheard telling a fan about her new album, which will be released next month. Featuring all-star duets with both Nas and Beyoncé, Mary J. recorded the album to “inspire and move people in many ways.” With the album wrapped, the singer is already making plans for her next adventure, telling fans she would “love to go on tour with Nicki Minaj” and laughing when asked if Beyoncé’s pregnancy will interfere with the music video of their new track at the Music Choice’s SWRV TV booth. Before taking the stage, Mary J. told fans to be on the lookout for Lil’ Kim, saying the rapper is “relaxing right now, but she can have a comeback. She has never let us down.” With a new album, a duet with Beyoncé and a Lil’ Kim comeback, Mary. J. Blige gave fans a lot to look forward to in the coming months!
