Fair skin beauty and star of the comedy series “2 Broke Girls”, Kat Dennings, arrived alongside her handsome beau, Nick Zano. The two were described as a “walking comedy routine” by onlookers, posing with matching Miami Dolphins hats from New Era Cap Co. and calling their fedora’s “fedorable“. Between stealing kisses and calling each other “babe” the two shared some funny lines that had the lounge in hysterics — with Nick saying that “even Kat got a tan” due to the extreme Los Angeles heat. The two enhanced their natural energy at Emergen-C, checking out their favorite flavors, and got playful with the Black & Decker PLATINUM Hand Vacuums. When Kat started vacuuming, Nick jumped in and said “let’s get her a couple of these please” only to have Kat fire back with “yes so I can charge them before he uses them.” The two scored the new TiVo® Premiere 4 DVR with Product Lifetime Service and New Balance Minimus 1010 sneakers before heading out to enjoy the show.
Pint-size starlet Ginnifer Goodwin arrived in a patterned suit that she described as her “go-to get-up”. The Once Upon a Time actress was overheard telling a fellow partygoer that she’s very aware of her style and that she “rarely just throws on whatever”. Style is important to the pixie-haired actress and made it known that she likes to “pick and choose” her wardrobe wisely. Later, Ginnifer got excited when she noticed her hit ABC series on the TiVo® Premiere 4 DVR television screen saying “I don’t mind watching myself” and opted to stand and watch a few minutes of her work. When reminded of her previous roles, she released a sigh of nostalgia and said “that was back when my hair was long…”
Funny lady Melissa McCarthy may be famous for her on-screen antics but at home she’s just a regular mother of two with everyday problems. The “Mike and Molly” actress arrived to the backstage lounge in a red, flowing top, red pants and no makeup. After checking out the Emergen-C booth, at which she stated Super Orange was her favorite flavor and the family goes through it at a shocking rate, she spotted the Black & Decker PLATINUM Hand Vacuums across the room and clapped her hands in excitement. “I have a five year-old and a two year-old at home so nothing looks better than these!” the actress was overheard exclaiming.
Entertainment industry legend, Ron Howard, stopped by The Emergen-C Gift Lounge Backstage. Upon arrival, he checked out Emergen-C, telling Host, Micah Jesse that Super Orange was his favorite flavor because it reminded the actor/director, who starred in “Happy Days,” of Tang, the popular drink of the show’s era. When asked where he’s residing these days, he said, “we really live in New York – we have an apartment in Santa Monica but most of our time is spent at our houses in Manhattan and Westchester County.” He went on to explain that he “grew up in Los Angeles and loves it here, but New York is now home.” Despite his level of stardom, Howard was incredibly kind and gracious to everyone during the hour he spent in the Gift Lounge, which he visited “directly off of a flight from NYC.”
Tiny starlet Hayden Panettiere also made an appearance on Sunday. She looked gorgeous, stopping first at Emergen-C, and then making a beeline for sneakers at the New Balance booth, exclaiming that she wanted them in every color because they looked so cool. When asked what kind of workouts she does, she mentioned that her recent move to Nashville for work had resulted in an increased need for running because of the local cuisine, “it’s all BBQ and I love it way too much,” she confessed. “So I now have to run a lot more than I used to, I try to run every day if I’m not too tired.” She then went on to complain that her feet happened to be incredibly tired and sore from the shoes she was wearing at the time, remarking that she would much rather have had the sneakers on right then. Hayden also got excited about the new TiVo Premiere 4 DVR with Product Lifetime Service!
Edie Falco looked stunning and healthier than ever when she arrived at The Emergen-C Gift Lounge Backstage on Sunday. She wondered around the lounge, vibing to the music and looking in wonderful spirits as she perused the Black & Decker PLATINUM Hand Vacuums until Glen Close, who looked equally beautiful, approached her to say hello and compliment her on her dress. “Oh, I cannot believe how comfortable it is!” Falco replied, “I think it’s because it’s so stretchy. Either way it’s making this a wonderful event.” About 20 minutes later, she spotted Christine Baransky and jumped up and down, running over to give her a hug as Christine shouted, “mom’s night off for both of us!!” The two continued to catch up until Modern Family star, Ed O’Neill approached Baransky, telling her “she looked absolutely incredible” and asking her what she does to work out nowadays. To which she responded that she maintained the same fitness routine she had always had, she just worked a little harder now. The pair, who appear to be old friends, went on to speak about the good old days, joking that they seem to be working a little less hard in every other aspect of their lives now than they did when they were younger but, as Baransky pointed out, “we worked our butts off when we were young, though, that’s how we got to where we are now. We did have a lot of crazy times and laughs along the way, though, didn’t we?” To which O’Neill agreed, shaking his head and laughing. She bid adieu to her old pal to catch up with Glenn Close who also told her she looked terrific to which she replied, “yeah, but other people were getting a tan off of my dress,” referring to the gold sequined mini dress she donned to the event. “I just got sick of dragging a train around, though, you know?” Close shook her head, saying that she truly almost wore her Cruella Deville boots because they were made out of a material that kept your legs and feet cool. When Close moved on to inspect some New Era Cap Co. hats, her husband stood behind her, explaining that he just learned she had a small head, saying, “that’s why she fluffs up her hair, to hide that tiny noggin.” Close also hammed it up with her hubby at the Zerona booth…where she scored a gift card for the much-buzzed about body-sculpting treatments.
The fit beauty turned heads in a stunning gold dress while escorted by her sexy husband David Charvet when the two entered the lounge. The Dancing with the Stars winner was overheard telling a bystander that the key to making their relationship work is “to make as much time for each other as possible”. With David by her side, the loving duo made one another their top priority – always looking out to make sure each is close by. As Brooke was photographed, David let his leading lady be the star of the show, opting for more of a backseat role which he seemed to enjoy. Later, when Brooke ran into fellow Dancing with the Stars cast mate and judge Carrie Ann Inaba, the two got playful at Black & Decker PLATINUM Hand Vacuums and posed for photos with the New Balance Minimus 1010. When the body conscious twosome stopped by Zerona to learn more about the new body-sculpting treatments, Brooke spoke about her fitness regime saying, “it’s easy, I just never skip a meal”. Must be hard to stay fit with kids? She was overheard telling onlookers about her superpower, “I’m super at driving my kids around!”
