PR heavyweight Doris Bergman held her 5th Annual Emmys Style and Lounge Celebration at Fig and Olive in West Hollywood.
As with any legit Emmys party, there was no shortage of champagne, celebrities and designers showing off their newest and most enviable swag. Between bumping elbows with everyone from industry vets like the iconic Jon Voight to the superbly talented up and coming actress Joey King, vendors from all over showcased some truly amazing products.
Sponsors and guests were also there to support Wednesday’s Child, a weekly segment on FOX 11 highlighting children in need and donated gifts for their pre holiday gift giving drive.
Here are more photos from the event
Party sponsor and by far the busiest table belonged to MD Sun, a skin care line providing state of the art products to keep your skin looking youthful and healthy. MD Sun provided guests of the party with a particularly impressive doggy bag full of various toners, creams and even a hydrating mask packaged in a silver travel bag that would make a pretty cool gift just on its own. I haven’t tried all of the products yet but I have high hopes for the Intensive Eye Gel.
What goes better with beautiful skin than a beautiful smile? Not much, and that’s where Whitening Lightening comes in. Their whitening products rival your dentist’s and even come with a handy and effective LED light to keep that thousand watt smile brighter than ever in just 20 minutes.
The lovely ladies of Spongellé were also there to hand out their various cleansing and exfoliating products. They specialize in scented soap infused sponges that are good for at least 14 uses. They’re reasonably priced and super convenient not to mention they’re super cute and come in a bunch of scents, I got the Bulgarian Rose and it smells like a freaking spring garden.
Single Dress was also on hand providing guests with a mini shopping spree of racks of super cute dresses and tops to sift through, I had my eye on a lime green lace shift dress but due to the heat and my inexcusable laziness. I declined trying anything on and instead was lucky enough to take home an adorable bright fuchsia tank top that fits like a glove. I will definitely be hitting up Single Dress again for my future party dress needs.
One of my favorites of the day were the gracious merchants of Azul Imperial Tequila. I love me some good tequila and Azul Imperial did not disappoint. I was able to sample the Blanco as well as the Reposado and I can honestly say that in a swelteringly humid room and with no chaser, that was some of the smoothest tequila I have ever tasted. Macrina Montes knows her shiz and was able to break it down for me like a boss. Her insight and passion for her product was remarkable and made me want to be her best friend.
Other notable merchandise was provided by Unity Vintage Jeans, Traveler’s Choice Luggage, Twisted Silver Jewelry, Go Fore Broke Sportswear, Ooh La Bra, and My Sweet Cupcake.
Once again, Doris Bergman put on a hell of a party; I just hope I’m invited back next year.

The Emmy Awards celebrate the most important staple in life as we know it: television. Some of my best friends are fictional characters and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Without the thrilling storylines and shocking plot twists of our favorite shows to keep us captivated day in and day out, who knows what kinds of mischief we might get ourselves into. We could mess around and end of having to actually speak to other humans, like face to face and stuff.
Fortunately, television’s ninja tight grip is stronger than ever, due mostly to the fact that TV shows are kicking ass right now. I have pretty solid evidence suggesting that binge watching our favorite television shows is at an all time high, and by evidence I’m just referring to how I spend all my weekends…and most of my weeknights.
What better way to celebrate the exceptional efforts of our beloved small screen heroes than by throwing extravagant parities in their favor?? The Audi Emmys Celebration at Cecconi’s kicked off the acclaimed weekend in true Hollywood fashion. Those sticking to their strict champagne diets were in quite good company, as the swanky soiree hosted some of the television elite.
Aaron Paul and his ridiculously gorgeous wife were in attendance as were Emmy winner “Modern Family” co-stars Ty Burrell, Julie Bowen and Sarah Hyland all looking flawless per the usual. “Downton Abbey” star and one of my many lady crushes Michelle Dockery was also taking part in the festivities looking pretty amazing in her lovely green dress and strangely taller than I had anticipated which in turn made my lady crush grow exponentially. I don’t think I’ve ever had the pleasure of being in the presence of so many chiseled cheekbones or twinkling Disney princess eyes. (I’m looking at you, Jesse Metcalf.)
Aside from all the talented attendees which also included Zoe Saldana in all her bun in oven glory, double Emmy winner Allison Janney and Rhetta, the hilarious star of my current Netflix obsession, “Parks and Recreation,” the Audi party boasted some pretty epic fashion game. While a few missed the mark with the super played out bandage dress that won’t seem to go away, there were a ton of really interesting choices that must be acknowledged. I don’t know what Zoe Saldana was wearing but it was leopard and metallic and she looked like a sassy pregnant gleaming angel and I loved it. “OITNB” star Dascha Polanco looked absolutely gorgeous in a black and gold flowing dress that made her look like a magnificent butterfly. It should also be stated that Dascha’s hair game was just as gold and flowing as her dress and she is therefore a super babe. Fact.
The outfit of the night however, must to go to the stunning unnamed guest who owned every inch of her look. I don’t know who she is but she rocked a black tulle tea length skirt, metallic gold bustier and crimson lip harder than anyone in the building. Shout out to you, you beautiful stranger!
As the stars partied the night away, dancing to sick beats and gearing up for what spoils the weekend may hold, it was clear, the Audi Emmy Celebration was definitely the perfect way to kick off one of the most exciting events in television.Emmy Parties: Having Fun at the Audi Emmys Week Celebration Party #Emmys #Celebs #POV Point of View article by Quinn Marie, RCR Entertainment Writer and Host, click to follow her on Twitter
If you haven’t watched an episode of the new comedy “Young and Hungry” then this is the perfect way to find out what you’ve been missing.
“Young & Hungry” is about a young, (broke) talented food blogger, Gabi, played by Emily Osment who auditions for a job working as a personal chef for a wealthy young tech entrepreneur, Josh, played by Jonathan Sadowski.
Interestingly, this show was inspired by a “real” food blogger, Gabi Moskowitz, who lives in San Francisco where this show is set. Gabi is also the name of the main character played by Emily Osment. Check out the “real” Gabi’s blog here BrokeAssGourmet.com.
In the pilot episode, Gabi is asked to make a romantic dinner for Josh’s girlfriend but that’s when things go sideways and Gabi finds herself in an awkward position.
Emily On Being a Foodie…
“I don’t know if I am a foodie.” [But if you’re talking about knowing where to find good food] “that’s me, I guess. When you grow up in a city you kinda arrange an anthology of all the great places to eat – like where to go on Fairfax. I know where to go based on knowing where I am.”
Emily on Cooking…
“Its hard to come home and cook [because of her work schedule].”
“I don’t have to cook anything on set, it’s TV magic. We stopped using the gas on set because it made everyone nervous. But because of our shooting schedule, our chef April makes everything off-set right before we show it in the scene [we’ve filming] and explains the dish to me and tells me what I should do… sometimes I have no idea what a certain food [dish] is and I learn [on the fly] right before we shoot it.”
Emily on how she is like her on-screen character Gabi…
“I feel like you put as much of yourself into the character [as you can] as it’s helpful for me to be comfortable playing Gabi.”
“No matter what, everyone is going to flounder in their 20s and they tread deep water. My character Gabi might not make it to the shallow end because she has never had the experience working for someone so powerful, or being a part of the staff so she is taking on a lot of responsibility which is strange but she keeps trying.”
Emily on Rex Lee…
We asked who’s the most fun on set… “On man, for me, it’s Rex Lee. I have such a wonderful relations with him and love the way he works. This is the first time he is working on a four camera sitcom (he has worked on one camera sets previously) and he is analyzing the scene and figuring out where he is going and he verbalizes and is so well rehearsed. He’s also hysterical and love to nap on set.”
Emily on the “Love” Triangle…
What are the fans hoping to see with her character and Josh? “I know what I see on Twitter – it’s hard to do a live tweet because I’m not home a lot. [The fans] are so adamant that they hate Caroline, played by Mallory Jansen, and in the series she plays an awful character and it’s so funny to have scenes with her because she is such a nice person that you [love to hate].”
Emily on her Dogs – and rescue dog…
“I have three dogs between my place and my parents, a golden retriever, teacup poodle and I have a rescue dog that is weird and took some time to [acclimate] to his new settings but so does everyone.”
Emily on what happens in the Season Finale…
Sorry – we don’t publish spoilers – you have to tune in tonight to ABC Family at 8 PM EST to see why Josh and Caroline’s wedding is unexpectedly moved up and why everyone is freaking out…
Gabi is panicking about her feelings for Josh and has a special birthday gift for him but gives it to Caroline because she (self-absorbed…) forget it. Then Gabi sees Josh’s heartfelt reaction and feels like she needs to tell him the truth and maybe ruin the wedding…

Mingle Media TV and Red Carpet Report host Tamara Krinsky were invited to cover the 66th Emmy® Awards Media Press Room to Interview Winners at the Nokia Theater at LA LIVE. This post is a mashup of coverage (our team on site) and the memorable moments from our host, Tamara, and her time Emmys experience.
Here’s Tamara’s Favorite Moments from the 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards

This year’s Emmy ceremony, broadcast on NBC on August 25th, 2014, was perhaps most notable for its lack of surprises. But Seth Myers was an affable host whose jokes, for the most part, landed solidly, and it was fun to see actors more traditionally known for their appearances on the big screen mixing it up with the television folk.
Instead of big surprises, what made the show enjoyable were the small moments of good-humored interplay between attendees, some choice one-liners that made the audience chuckle and the warm feeling that seemed to pervade the auditorium as the TV community came together to celebrate their own. And of course, some of the more personal stories shared backstage after the winners walked off with their golden statues.
Even after I hit “erase” on my DVR, here are some of the highlights that will stick with me from this year’s show.
–Seth Myers making fun of the networks throwing an award show where all the awards go to shows on cable and Netflix.
–My talent crush, Allison Janney, winning her 2nd Emmy within a week. I was lucky enough to witness her first win at the Creative Arts Emmy ceremony on Saturday, August 16th, when she took home the statue for Guest Actress in a Drama for the role of ‘Margaret Scully’ in Masters of Sex. It was a treat to once again watch her head up to the stage to accept an award for her work, this time in the Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy for her work on Mom. She’s one of those actresses who makes me laugh and cry in the same breath, and her chat in the press room shed some light on her versatility.
When asked about how she balances drama and comedy, she said that she had received great training in the theater. While at Kenyon College, she would jump right from doing a comedy like A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum to a dramatic Michael Cristofer play, each requiring different emotional and physical needs. She also told us that she grew up dancing and figure skating, which gave her great control over her body. She said tries not to qualify the work that she does as being either comedy or drama. While technically a comedy, Mom deals with some very serious topics, and Masters of Sex has moments of great humor. It’s all about “just bringing the reality under the imaginary circumstances and having fun.”
–While we’re on the subject of fashion, a shout out to Hayden Panettiere, who looked fantastic in her sparkly Lorena Sarbu gown that made the most of her baby bump.
–I hate that I need to even mention that it was a great year for women at the Primetime Emmys, but it’s still notable when women win multiple writing and directing awards. Congratulations to Gail Mancuso (Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series – Modern Family, “Vegas”), Sarah Silverman (Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special – Sarah Silverman: We Are Miracles) and Moira Walley-Beckett (Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series – Breaking Bad, “Ozymandias”).
When speaking to reporters, Mancuso said that she hoped that seeing someone like herself win a Directing Emmy would help to normalize the situation and make young girls think about the fact that they can be behind the camera and not just in front of it.
I also got a kick out of how during her acceptance speech, Mancuso remained in director mode, telling one of the camera men to get out of the way so that they could show the people she was in the midst of thanking on screen.
–Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Bryan Cranston’s running joke about his appearance on Seinfeld was one of the funnier bits of the evening. When they appeared together as presenters, she said he reminded her of an actor who appeared on the sitcom and played her love interest dentist Tim Whatley…the joke, of course, being that he actually played the role. The two bantered back and forth, with Louis-Dreyfus never admitting she remembered him. With all of the accolades he’s received for his role on Breaking Bad, sometimes it’s hard to remember that before Cranston took on the role of Walter White, he was nominated multiple times for his turn as “Hal” on Malcolm in the Middle. But tonight was a good reminder, as his comedic timing was on full display. Louis-Dreyfus’s win for Lead Actress in a Comedy allowed she and Cranston to complete the third part of the bit, as he laid one on her after her name was called. Later in the press room, when asked about the lip lock, he quipped, “Well, I think it’s not a question of why, but more a question of why not?”
–Movie stars can make fun of themselves, too. Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey were good sports as many from the stage commented on their unusual appearance at the Emmys. And then the two of them continued with the teasing as they made fun of one another while presenting the award for Best Lead Actor in a TV movie or miniseries. “So you won the Oscar, the Sexiest Man Alive and now you want the Emmy, too?” Harrelson said. “Isn’t that a little bit greedy?”
–Chris Hardwick schooling Internet trolls on the difference between “your” and “you’re.” Grammar nerds unite!
–When asked about how she was going to celebrate her win, Kathy Bates said she might sneak off to dinner with Melissa McCarthy and her husband. I’d like to request a seat at that dinner table.
–Juliana Margulies’ dig at cable and Netflix series when she specifically mentioned the writers on The Good Wife “who never cease to amaze me with 22 episodes a year.” I’m a platform agnostic TV junkie, but I do think that the shows that manage to sustain excellence across 22 episodes, rather than 10 or 13, deserve a special bit of recognition.
