HOT SHOTS: Rachel Zoe Hosts First-Ever Super Saturday L.A.
Rachel Zoe and Molly Sims, with husbands Rodger Berman and Scott Stuber, shopped for a cause this Saturday, May 17th as they hosted’s 1st Annual Super Saturday L.A. at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, CA.
The stylish duo spent the day mingling with their families and other celeb friends at the Hamptons-famous designer garage sale which made its way to the west coast for the first time commemorating OCRF’s 20th anniversary. Zoe, who is a long-time supporter of OCRF, made the rounds at the garage sale – checking out fellow designer before signing copies of her new book “Living in Style” at the Kitson booth.
“Dinner with Tiffani’s” host Tiffani Thiessen hung out with her husband Brady Smith and baby Harper at the “At Home with JCPenney” booth where she hosted cooking demonstrations and treated guests to delicious snacks. Guests in the area got goofy in the JCPenney photo booth (with “selfie” advice by Decades Founder and style icon Cameron Silver), stayed hydrated with FIJI Water, and checked out JCPenney’s newest home products while their little ones got their faces painted.
It was a family affair for many attendees at the event, including actor Liev Schreiber, who stopped by the event and enjoyed some father-son bonding as they played in the private jet, provided by the luxury Las Vegas hotels Palazzo and Venetian. Schrieber is the also the king of the bean bag toss. He played 5 rounds with his adorable sons, showing them the tricks of the trade…definitely the coolest dad in the world!
Christina Millian stopped by with her daughter Violet – snagging an Angry Bird plush toy and visiting some of the great children’s activities at the event – including a family lounge by The Honest Company and the interactive play area with the educational children’s TV network BabyFirst. Children at the event had a blast at The Playroom’s bouncy house, Rob Younkers and Fashion Designer and Stylist Joe Zee Stitched Fashion Camp, P.S. ARTS, Duff’s Cakemix’s on-site interactive design bakery and more.
Other Super Saturday LA attendees – like Giuliana & Bill Rancic, George Kotsiopoulus, Heather McDonald, Lisa Rinna, Janel Parrish, Nikki Deloach, Becca Tobin, Benjamin Stockham, Ryan Cabrera, Steven R Mc. Queen, Charlotte Ross, Patti Stanger, Brittny & Lisa Gastineau, Rachel Roy and more – were spotted shopping, snacking, sipping and mingling at the fun-filled, family-oriented fundraiser – nick-named the “Rolls Royce of Garage Sales”. The event offered premier fashion for women, men and kids plus beauty, jewelry, accessories and home items, with 100% of the proceeds supporting OCRF’s research grants.
Guests – like Lacey Chabert, Scott Porter and Janel Parrish – who were seen walking away with several bags – got designer deals from the likes of Versace, Kate Spade SATURDAY, Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent, Trina Turk, Tommy Hilfiger, Planet Blue, Kenneth Cole, SOL REPUBLIC, TC Fine Intimates, Arthur George by Robert Kardashian, Charmed Circle, Cakewalk Style Shop, Triumph Lingerie, Kitson and more. After shopping, guests checked out seamlessly courtesy of East West Bank.
In addition to the deeply-discounted designer shopping, OCRF’s Super Saturday LA offered guests – like Gayle King and Alison Hokler (So You Think You Can Dance) – an afternoon of indulgence and fun including manicures and make-up applications by the L’Oreal Paris, braids and blowouts at the Rachel Zoe-founded premiere blowout salon DreamDry, expert eyebrow shaping by Shapes Brow Bar, a Cobra Puma Golf hitting bay, complimentary rides by ATLS Worldwide and much more.
The day also hosted a variety of culinary experiences, including a full lunch buffet from Lexington Social House, the Pussy & Pooch Pet Park where four-legged friends – like Glee’s Jenna Ushkovitz’s puggle Riley – played and snacked at the Paw Bar, celebrity meet & greets, a luxury grand raffle and more. Jenna was stoked to be getting to try all the flavors of Sheila G’s Brownie Brittle…she signed our board to give an extra $100 to the OCRF.
The original Super Saturday in the Hamptons will continue this summer – Tune in to QVC Presents SuperSaturday LIVE on July 26th at 2pm EST for more designer deals!

Backstage HOT SHOTS from the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards!
Did you watch the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards this year??? I’ve got it on my DVR, because I was busy hanging out backstage with presenters, nominees and winners — at the Emergen-C Inner City of Strength in The Presenters Gift Lounge backstage at The Nokia Theatre in Celebration of The 64th Primetime Emmy(R) Awards!
I had the pleasure of welcoming and chatting with stars from television’s biggest shows like Breaking Bad, Modern Family, Mad Men, New Girl, Damages, Homeland, Downton Abbey. Some of my favorite moments were with “30 Rock’s” Tina Fey and Tracy Morgan, “Modern Family” winner Eric Stonestreet, actresses Lucy Liu, Martha Plimpton, and Mayim Bialik (Blossom!!!), the iconic Glen Close & so many more…
I had so many favorite moments but here is Micah Jesse’s Top 5 Favorite Primetime Emmy Awards Moments for 2012:
- Actor, director and all-around intertainment industry legend Ron Howard stopped by the Emergen-C City of Inner Strength, where I was holding court, and told me that Super Orange was his favorite flavor because it reminded him of Tang, the popular drink from the “Happy Days” era. When asked where he’s residing these days, Ron 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.” Home to me, too, Ron!
- Giancarlo Esposito, who was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for “Breaking Bad”, was such a breath of fresh air! I asked the vivacious actor if he drank Emergen-C, he said, “Are you kidding me – I don’t travel without it!” If Giancarlo had a superpower, he told me he would actually have a dual-superpower…he would be able to read minds & fly. Love that!
- Who’s more fun than “30″ rock star Tracy Morgan? Easy answer — no one! The funnyman stopped backstage to kick his feet up and relax before the show was over and entertain us all. Tracy had us fizzing at the seams with hysterics. At one point he picked up the phone and said, “Tell Barack I’ll be right there!” You can actually watch a clip from Access Hollywood!
- Best known for playing Al Bundy on “Married With Children,” actor Ed O’Neill was celebrating an Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series nomination for his role as Jay Pritchett on “Modern Family.” As much as he loves his role as an actor, Ed told me that ultimately, he wants to be best known for being a “super dad.” Awwwwwwww!!!! Mush!
- And last, but certainly not least, having a moment with actor Eric Stonestreet, who won Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his role as Cameron Tucker on “Modern Family.” The actor told me he is “super” at cooking and makes a mean steak. And he laughed off rumors of dating Charlize Theron but said he wasn’t mad about it! I wouldn’t be either!

David Hasselhoff Celebrates His Birthday — Looking Good At 60!
David Hasselhoff hit the town on Saturday night to celebrate his 60th birthday!
The actor was joined by girlfriend Hayley Roberts, daughter Taylor Ann Hasselhoff, and members of the original Baywatch and Knight Rider casts, for his b-day bash at LA hot spot Greystone Manor.
As a very special gift, his former cast mates presented the pop culture icon a replica of KITT, the car from Knight Ryder, in the parking lot with his girlfriend and daughter by his side.
The gang was just missing Hasselhoff’s youngest daughter, Hayley, but onlookers said Taylor Ann did enough partying for the both of them as she danced the night away with friends at a table.
The Hoff partied hard for his birthday celebration, but our source tells MJ, “he wasn’t drinking…he joked he couldn’t eat anymore cake since he had to drive his precious cargo home!”Read More
