Exclusive: Lil' Kim applies some lipstick with the help of Derek Hough's sunglasses in Los Angeles
Actually there might be 2 KAT pix in the Enquirer

Also I want to give a shout out to Lil Kim and Derek Hough on their dancing on DWTS last night. Lil Kim looked and danced amazing last night. I very happy that she is doing so well and is so popular. I wish her the best.

Beautiful Business Woman Beverly Johnson

Dressed in a bright white suit, gorgeous Entrepreneur and Super Model Beverly Johnson was in Beverly Hills yesterday. I told her I was a fan. Ms. Johnson has been on the cover of magazines when few African American Models were seen. Regardless of her age, Beverly will always be super model to me.

Jessica Biel on Bedford

Beautiful Jessica Biel was caught on Bedford Drive yesterday. The girl friend of singer Justin Timberlake seemed to be carrying a script in her purse.
Jessica was escorted to her car by the infamous Queen of Bedford who is reportedly getting her own reality show.

Figure Skating Champion Kurt Browning

I had the pleasure of meeting figure skater Kurt Browning. Browning was shooting an intro to the World Championship for Figure Skating. He was the First man to land a quadruple jump in figure skating competition. We talked about our mutual love and respect for Gene Kelly. Kurt Browning then told me to look up his tribute to Gene Kelly's "Singing in the Rain"

I asked him a about this season of DWTS and also what Male Figure Skaters should wear. Browning was cool to talk to. Kurt was fun to interview...

Jewel leaving the Ivy restaurant on crutches in Los Angeles

Sometimes I question what I'm doing due to the lack of clarity of payment. I constantly have self doubt. It is interesting how "rewards" "acknowledgements" and money seem to boast self esteem. I guess we all need continuous validation.

Mandy Moore & Debra Messing Give Great Face @ Make A Wish Event

There must have been something in the air yesterday. It was one of my busiest days shooting and although I rarely shoot at night, I made an exception since there was so much going on. After photographing Reba Mcentire & Jewel entering STK, there was a big event starting across the street. So while waiting for Reba and Jewel to finish dinner, we amused ourselves by running across the extremely dangerous La Cienga to catch the action at the MAKE A WISH event. Mandy Moore
fresh from being married to Rock Musician Ryan Adams, was absolutely beaming and so was her ring.
Debra Messing was very expressive on the pink carpet as well.

Below is a clip of some of the highlights of the pink carpet, Mandy Moore, Marissa Tomei, Jewel & Debra Messing...

Reba Mcentire & Jewel have STK

Country Legend Reba Mcentire and Jewel met for din din yesterday at STK.
Reba arrived first.One of the paps lost one of his flip flops which was amusing. Jewel arrived a little later and joined Reba. Later they left
and Jewel went across the street to a Make A Wish Charity Event.

Flat Tire & Sushi for Chuck Wicks & Juilanne Hough

What happens when DWTS Chuck Wicks and Julianne Hough have a flat tire? They keep on stepping...

Ty Murray Fashionable Cowboy

Singer Jewel's husband Rodeo Rider, DWTS' Ty Murray is a good old boy with good taste. Carrying a suede bag, wearing a light leather star studded belt and a burnt orange western shirt, Ty knows how to dress Cowboy Chic.

Funny MAD TV Man Bobby Lee

While having a leisurely late lunch at the Grove, Bobby Lee said Hi.

Comedian Chris Rock Pouts at the IVY

Coincedently, I just watched HBO's Chris Rock: Kill the Messenger. He was very funny. Rock is a talented comic and actor. Not that I had any expectations of him but he was pouty at the Ivy while he was being photographed. Everyone knows in the industry "you don't go to the IVY unless you want attention especially during lunch." I guess Chris Rock didn't get the memo because he seemed shocked. He must have a new project coming out.

Stars Aren't The Only Ones That Need A Face Lift...

While chatting with an Australian tourist, it came to our attention that the Grauman's Chinese Theatre is in need of some work on it's facade. Like so many stars, the famous theatre could use some fixing up. The paint is chipping and the metal on the roof looks dull.
It seems odd that a "Chinese Theatre" has flat orange paint instead of a brilliant red but who knows why orange was chosen. Built in 1926 and opened in 1927, Grauman's Chinese Theatre has a rich history and deserves some sprucing up.

KAT & David Beckham Video

Maybe it was the Leprechauns whose knows? But I finally got a copy of my David Beckham video after months of waiting. Sometimes things happen for a reason beyond your understanding at the time. I added some pix of me to add some spice because alot of people wanted to know what I looked like when the video was shot. So since some new shots were taken recently, I added them to the video. Also I hear Beckham is moving out of HeL.A. to play in Milan with a better team. It was fun while it lasted. So this is a Thank You for another hot guy driving away from me...

DWTS Lil Kim & Derek Hough

Lil Kim and Derek Hough will be doing the Samba next week. The Dancing With The Stars couple were about to have sushi when I chatted with them yesterday.
