Flash forward to 2010 and here I am, dream fulfilled. It is so surreal to put something out into the universe and actually have it come to you. Many people helped me get here and I am forever grateful. I am now part of a close knit family of talented hosts and reporters such as Ryan Seacrest, Giuliana Rancic, Jason Kennedy, Ashlan Gorse, Ben Lyons, Catt Sadler, Sal Masekela, Michael Yo, Kristina Guerrero and Melana Scantlin. It is an honor to be in the company of such wonderful people on and off screen.
In honor of 20 years of pop culture, E! teamed up with Ciroc vodka to throw a party, Hollywood style. Held on the rooftop of the London Hotel in West Hollywood, celebs, E! execs and party guests socialized amidst a picture perfect backdrop overlooking the twinkling lights of Hollywood. I put on a sparkly studded white French Connection cocktail dress and brought along my handsome scruffy date Drew Seeley. We sipped champagne and noshed on spicy tuna, truffle fries and chicken nuggets. I hung out with my co-host Melana Scantlin as we admired the acrobatics of the aerial artists dangling above the pool. I had the privilege of catching up with the super sweet and always adorable Jeannie Mai, host of How Do I Look? on the Style Network. It was a fun festive night of mixing and mingling. Before heading out to make my way back to E! to finish my duties for E! News Now, I made sure to thank the man behind the brand, Ted Harbert for a lovely night.
