Super Special Rooftop Party & American Music Awards PreParty
Posted by fiveminutephotos on November 21, 2010 ·
This event was advertised as Mario Lopez Charity event. Original date was Oct 9th for Mario Lopez B-day. Was Mario even there?
The Presidential Inner Circle is hosting Extra’s TV Mario Lopez’s Private Rooftop Birthday Party Benefiting Rally For Kids.
The above statement was taken from the link below.
If the link above gets deleted I made a word doc of it here.
OK…. Well I am not real sure how to start this. Hopefully I don’t offend too many people. First I want to say it was great seeing the 100′s of people that I knew at the event last night. I have been out of that loop for awhile so it was pretty cool to hang out and mingle with everyone. It seemed like everyone was in good spirt and enjoying themselves.
On a later note… Being to so many events and red carpets of various caliber I think I am qualified to make these statements. This event drew several hundred people, and to the organizers it would appear as a successful event. And it might have been for some people as onlookers from the side walk were amazed by what was going on.
This event was at the very top the most disorganized redcarpet that I have ever attended. Next to the LA Music Awards last week. The staff on hand, although I am sure had good intentions, not one of them had any clue how to handle a capacity of this size. The carpet was flooded with B and C list talent…
When real talent showed up to do the carpet they were asked to wait until the not so talented people finished posing for the cameras.
But it was only every once in awhile that you would see a person come on to the carpet that actually had some notoriety. I think a total of about 10 people the whole night fit in that category.
Its funny how these people that get paid to handle celebrities have no idea when there is a real celebrity standing right infront of their face. Simply amazes me. If I was one of the celebs last night, and was asked to wait for a nobody to get off the carpet before I was allowed on, I think I would just excuse myself from the event all together.
All in all everyone looked fabulous and seemed to be having a good time.
There are about 6 different circles of people that attend various events that I am familiar with. Last night they all ended up at the same place, talk about cross promoting. I must have known every photographer and 50% of the guests that attended last night.
As everyone keeps saying how small Hollywood is. I believe people are just starting to merge together. It seems the Hollywood circle is getting bigger. But the truth is, the real Hollywood, where the real celebrities are have a small close circle. Which is probably where they all were last night because they sure weren’t at this so called celeb event.
The funny part is that most everyone knew only the people from their circles, and didn’t know anyone else there. People kept coming up to me and saying who are all these people?
Atleast the bar made a lot of money last night. The drinks were reasonably priced at $10 although they were only serving different types of Vodka, and everyone had atleast 1 drink in their hand at all times. They also brought around complimentary tequila shots.
The 3rd level was pretty crowed with people drinking, dancing and taking pics of themselves and their friends with the Wax Figures. Christopher and Kyle Massey along with a few other celebs hung out and partied with the crowd. Jose Canseco was with his girlfriend and hung out downstairs most of the time just sitting around.
After awhile everyone seemed to be getting bored and many people left the event. Others went to the second floor to get away from the 3rd floor crowd because it was too many people in 1 narrow room.
I heard many people talking about being tricked. They all paid to be apart of this huge celebrity event, and although there were alot people there, it turned out to be just another Hollywood party. Some people stuck around waiting for Paris Hilton to show up. I guess she got there around 2am or later. By then I had enough and left. Maybe next time Paris.

The Dumbest Photographer in LA
Today I have taken the unprecedented step of PERMANENTLY BANNING FOR LIFE PHOTOGRAPHER TRAVIS JOURDAIN. Travis was one of a small handful of photographers who last night was given exclusive access inside the venue to shoot images. He got pissed off because we would not let him in to the VIP area as two other event photographers were assigned to that zone and as a result Travis Jourdain has repaid the kindness we have shown him with a CAUSTIC MALICIOUS PERSONAL ATTACK that does not in ANY WAY reflect what really happened at the event. His Blog is here: http://fiveminutephotos.wordpress.com/2010/11/21/super-special-rooftop-party-american-music-awards-preparty/Today I have phoned, txt and emailed Travis, he has refused to return my calls and has removed the comment I made under his facebook post saying that his comments in no way reflect what really happened at the event. I have also sent Travis the below email which I include for your knowledge. BEWARE: IF TRAVIS JOURDAIN can do this to US, he will do it to YOU! Buddy Sampson from the LA Scoop stood right beside Travis on the red carpet and this was his view: http://thescoopla.com/2243/phil-jones-heads-spectacular-pic-event-at-madame-tussauds-waxworksTHERE ARE A THOUSAND PHOTOGRAPHERS IN LOS ANGELES, I wish to ask you a personal favor please DO NOT USE TRAVIS JOURDAIN, DO NOT HAVE HIM IN THE EVENT, AT THE EVENT OR ON THE GUEST LIST FOR THE EVENT.
