Hottie and Nottie Punk Hollywood

Yo Nottie...
The Hottie and the Nottie hit theaters earlier this month and I had a whirlwind of a time promoting it.  Before our weekend press junket Paris and I fulfilled a long-awaited jaunt into Hollywood for a night on the town in my "Nottie" makeup.  It was an idea we had since we started filming over a year ago and finally got the chance to do it so I headed over to my amazing make up artist's house, Randy Westgate, who made me into June Phigg for the night.  Our costume designer Christopher Lawrence was kind enough to lend me June's dress from the film- a hideous brown number complete
 with a fugly hat and shoes!  June had the best Wednesday of her life.  We had a blast- no one knew what to think, from the ever-present press that follows Paris around, to people on the street to folks inside the clubs-- we had an absolute blast and I loved watching the utter confusion on everyone's faces!  Hollywood is such a fake town at times so engaging in an ultimate Punk'd like this was a fantastic social experiment.  We laughed all night-  haven't had this much fun since the stupid stuff I used to do in college... ha!  
(I love that a certain website apparently bagged on our outing... only to then replay as fodder on their website and TV show over and over...  just so we're clear- we had tons of fun... so who was had? :)

Happy Birthday Lakin

Yo Friends!
It was my birthday on January 25th and I had a great one being surprised at dinner by 12 of my best pals.  Lots of calls and emails all day from friends everywhere.  I also got the nicest messages online from tons of fans, most specifically the  Lakin-ites on imdb, who were all so sweet and kind. :)  Thank you for remembering my birthday, it means a lot to me and I felt very loved
