This past week has been quite the exciting one at the Beach Haus! Austin North celebrated his birthday on Sunday with Olivia Holt, Keke Palmer celebrated her 21st on Tuesday and velvet launch their new t shirt to benefit St. Jude last night with Lily Aldridge and Ashley Tisdale.
This weekend was full of celebrating music! On Saturday Jessie J came by the Beach Haus. Jessie and friends danced all night celebrating her new song Bang Bang which was played on the beats pill. The Haus looked incredible with splashes of pink color everywhere.
Last night the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards were held in at The Forum in Inglewood, Ca and I was there to experience it all. Opening the show was the trio of Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj and Jesse J performing their new single “Bang Bang”. Host/stand-up comedian Jay Pharoah did a great job keeping the show alive by displaying some impressive interpretations of stars that were not in attendance. Along the way, we were treated to a variety of performances. Taylor Swift shook the stage wearing a great sequence outfit as she performed her new single “Shake It Off,”. Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora impressed the crowd with “Black Widow,”. Usher and Minaj’s performance left the crowd cheering for more. 5 Seconds Of Summer rocked out with their new single and Sam Smith had us grabbing tissues with a devastating performance of “Stay With Me”.
Fifth Harmony took the crown as Artists To Watch for “Miss Movin’ On”. Lorde took the crown for “Royals” being the first time in history, a woman won Best Rock Video category. As predicted, Miley made a statement. But this time for a different, and much more heartfelt, reason. Rather than coming up to accept the award for Video Of The Year with “Wrecking Ball,” she invited a young man named Jesse to the stage, who read a short speech. While he addressed the sobering reality of homelessness in Hollywood, Miley stayed put and teared up from her seat. Of course, all of this led up to the one and only Beyoncé. Looking flawless as ever, sparkling and strutting across the stage in a gorgeous shimmering leotard, she performed a 16 minute mini concert. Beyonce was honored with the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award. She gave a very moving speech complete with Jay and Blue Ivy on stage.
The Republic Records official MTV VMA after party at Project LA was definitely the place to be last night and the celebs looked just as good as they did when they headed to the big show! Several stars came to the invite only party to celebrate the evening including. Jennifer Lopez, Chris Brown, Lorde, Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj were amongst the stars who rubbed shoulders with fellow guests Marlon Wayans, DJ Caroline D’Amore and a very dapper Nick Jonas, who was joined by stunning date Olivia Culpo. We all enjoyed the evening taking photos on the carpet and mingling with each other.
Joe Manganiello puts on his dancin’ shoes for the New Balance and James Jeans dance party powered by ISKO held at a private residence on Tuesday (August 19) in Bel Air, Calif.

Joe was recently asked if he practiced his Magic Mike 2 dance moves on his girlfriend Sofia Vergara.
“Well, you know, I need to practice getting ready for Magic Mike 2. So, that’s all I have to say,” Joe said to E! News.
SIN CITY PREMIERE
The leading ladies of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For were the main attraction at the film’s Los Angeles premiere last night, and they did not disappoint. Jaime King, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, and Jamie Chung all came out to the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, Calif., wearing utterly smoldering ensembles.
Going for the wow, King took the daring route and chose a black and gold Versace gown that featured an asymmetrical neckline and an up-to-there thigh-high slit with zipper detailing (above, left). She completed her edgy look with asymmetrical Monique Lhuillier mules, statement earrings, and a sleek topknot. Alba took a pretty-meets-sexy approach to her ensemble, dazzling in an electric blue Zac Posen strapless dress, which fit impeccably and included a peplum detail at the waist (above, right). Strappy silver heels, a matching Lee Savage clutch, and jewels from Bulgari and Chopard topped off her ensemble.
Not one to be forgotten, Dawson strutted her stuff in a clingy leather and lace Ermanno Scervino dress that flaunted her best assets (above, left). The actress styled her winning frock with a gold Reece Hudson box clutch and simple black pumps. On the opposite side, Chung opted for a more understated but equally beautiful look in a long-sleeved Pamella, Pamella Roland plum lamé gown that was defined by cut-outs at the waist (above, right). She topped off her demure look with a high ponytail and accessorized with a fringed black clutch and small stud earrings. Talk about one hot red carpet!
Check out all four of the stars in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For when it hits theaters Aug. 22.
On Saturday we put on the launch party for Muscle Milk Organic at our Beach Haus in Malibu! It was such a beautiful day which made for the perfect backdrop. Ali Fedotowsky joined us to help launch this delicious drink! We started off the day with a Eden Sassoon pilates lesson on the sun deck. Afterwards, guests enjoyed an ice cold Muscle Milk Organic shake. The next class, No Gym Required, was taught by Jen Cohen. After everyone worked up a sweat once again, they were treated to snacks and more muscle milk. It was such a great afternoon and beautiful time on the beaches of Malibu!
Last night, the crackle family gathered at 1 Oak in West Hollywood to celebrate the premier of their new show “Sequestered” as well as the start of season 2 of “Cleaners”. Multiple stars were in attendance including singer, Lance Bass who is a close friend of actress Emmanuelle Chriqui. The NSYNC singer arrived with his fiancé, Michael Turchin.
Husband and Wife Terry and Heather Dubrow were seen at the after party, posing happily for cameras. David Arquette, one of the stars of “Cleaners” also made an appearance. A number of other celebrities partied at the 1 Oak, including Missi Pyle, Omar Avila, Emily Osment, Bruce Davison and Esai Morales.
Last night, EFG threw a launch party for VitaFrute’s Coconut Colada! Such a refreshing beverage, you should try it if you haven’t yet!
The party was at our beach haus in Malibu overlooking the beautiful pacific ocean. Guests were greeted with fresh leis and coconut colada served in a coconut! VitaFrute infused cupcakes gave the party a perfect touch - and my were they delicious! There was a steel drum band upstairs while the sun was still hot, and later in the night Tahitian dancers performed. Brooke Burke-Charvet came out for the fun and sipped on Coconut Colada throughout the night. I
Does summer really have to end so soon?!
Last night the TCL Chinese Theatre’s red carpet was filled with testosterone as the cast of The Expendables 3 rolled out for the premiere of the franchise’s latest film. The star-studded red carpet included the likes of cast members such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mel Gibson, Ronda Rousey, Antonio Banderas, Wesley Snipes, and Kellan Lutz.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley attended with boyfriend and cast member Jason Statham. Huntington-Whiteley stunned all, wearing a silk black and white sleeveless dress with a plunging neckline and revealing lace panels. The pair walked arm in arm and posed for photographs together, looking as much the couple as ever, despite the incessant split rumors surrounding their relationship.
Tall, dark and handsome seemed to be the theme for the night, with many of the cast sporting black or navy suits, with the exception of Terry Crews who wore all white. Star and one of the film’s writers, Sylvester Stallone, wearing all black except for a tan coat, was flanked by his wife, Jennifer Flavin, and three daughters.
Also in attendance was Harrison Ford, who was in good spirits and seemed fully recovered from his previous leg injury, as well as and Glee star Chord Overstreet.
The 16th annual Teen Choice Awards was another successful award show with millions of teens and tweens tuned in across the country anxiously awaiting to see many appearances and performances by their favorite celebrities. No one would have guessed that the award show was forced to switch venues last minute when the original venue was damaged during the Westwood Flood of 2014. Demi Lavato and Cher Lloyd opened up the show by performing Demi’s single, “Really Don’t Care.” The former Disney Channel star went on to win choice summer song and female summer music star. She as well as T.Swift and Zendaya gave inspirational acceptance speeches reminding all of the young teens out there to always be themselves and never give up on their dreams.
I honestly hate myself a little for not realizing that Teen Wolf star, Tyler Posey, was the same little kid who starred in Maid in Manhattan. Jennifer Lopez and Posey had a hilarious reunion on stage last night. Props to the TCA’s for that 2002 throwback. It appeared that there was a crop top uniform for last night’s award show. I am not sure why, but majority of the stars rocked the red carpet with their mid-drift exposed. My personal favorite was Taylor Swift’s green skirt paired with a matching crop top. Our favorite country singer had me dying of laughter when she presented the award for choice actor in a drama movie. The winner of the choice female country singer award stated, “No one knows more about dramatic males than I do.” So true Taylor, so true.
PSA: Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed were spotted publicly displaying their affection last night backstage. On another note, my favorite performance of the night was by Becky G singing Shower. Ariana Grande and her grandmother were also dancing their hearts out during the performance. I was a little disappointed I did not see Taylor and one of her many gal pals doing her signature awkward dance while jamming out to performances. If you do not know what I’m talking about youtube Taylor Swift dances at Grammys 2014. Jason Derulo closed the show singing “Talk Dirty,” while dancing on a police car. Last night was so much fun; however it was yet another award show proving that feeding the audience is no longer becoming a tradition.
The Red Carpet premiere for “Let’s Be Cops”, which took place at the ArcLight in Hollywood, drew an awesome crowd of young, hot celebrities on Thursday evening. Nina Dobrev showed up with best friend Julianne Hough, both of them looking stunning in short, trendy dresses. Nina stars in the film along with Natasha Leggero, who was also at the premiere sporting an elegant, white jump suit. Both women were having a great time doing hilarious poses for the paparazzi. Another star from the film, Jason D’Arcy graced the red carpet with his suave presence.
Hannah Simone and Max Greenfield who play Cece and Schmidt on the comedy series, “New Girl”, also made appearances at the premiere. Both of them were there to support their friends from the show and stars of “Let’s Be Cops”, Damon Wayans and Jake Johnson.
Overall, the red carpet premiere was a ton of good old fashion fun. Co-stars Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. laughed outrageously while arguing over who took the cake as the ‘sexy’ dancer between the two. In the film there is a scene where the two “Cops” must improvise dance moves at a strip club, the scene was apparently a lot of fun to shoot, as it was mostly improvised. While Jake thinks he has a leg up on his co-star in terms of how to “shake what your momma gave ya”, Nina Dobrev states to an exclusive eyewitness that Damon is clearly the better sexy dancer. Sorry Jake.
The Los Angeles after party was the perfect follow-up get-together after a hilarious film. Nina and Damon posed for photos looking stylish and sexy; the two clearly hit it off during the course of filming this movie. The event was teaming with classic comedy icons like Marlon Wayans, Wilmer Valderrama and Craig Robinson who all had a great time hanging out. Everyone was in good spirits enjoying a simple, yet elegant gathering of funny folk. Cheers to “Let’s Be Cops”, I personally can’t wait to see it.
The Imagine Ball presented by Hollywood group’s, John Terzian, and Imagine LA’s, Randall Kaplan, was a great event benefiting homeless families in Los Angeles. The event hosted at the House of Blues in West Hollywood had many famous faces in attendance as well as amazing musical performances by Magic!, Brave Native, and DJ beeFOWL. Kylie Jenner, who has been a long time supporter of the non-profit organization, rocked the red carpet in her all black outfit. Personally I miss the blue hombre hair style, but she looked awesome with her new jet black hair, black snake skin pants, sweater, and combat boots. If anyone else wore this outfit they would look goth, however Kylie of course pulled it off. David Arquette, who is one of the co-sponsors of Imagine LA, made an interesting fashion statement with his pin stripe suit and plaid shirt. I have a strong feeling he may appear on next week’s fashion police. Ryan Rottman might need to give David some fashion tips, because he looked perfect as always in a casual plaid shirt. Last night’s fundraiser raised a lot of money benefiting Imagine LA, and shows how when people work together for a good cause they can truly make an impact on their community.
