Some ladies of serious substance showed up Wednesday night waterside at Zuma at a party thrown by Haute Living magazine.
One in particular, Market America big Loren Ridinger, was honored by the glossy for her contribution to society. The event also fell the day before Ridinger’s birthday (not sure of the businesswoman’s age, but we neither ask nor tell).
The VIP list read like a casting call for Basketball Wives: former Real Housewives of Miami star Larsa Pippen; Adrienne Bosh; Jenine Howard; Gabrielle Union.
There in spirit: Jamie Foxx, who mellifluously sang Happy Birthday in a video tribute that costarred Ridinger’s “soul sister” Eva Longoria; Khloe Kardashian (“I love and adore you”), and Holly Robinson Peete.
Mystery of the evening: The fact that LaLa Anthony, who stood out as a bold-faced name on the invite, was a no-show.
Tired, are we? Carmelo Anthony’s prettier half was spotted Tuesday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn to see Kanye West perform.
Facing the music
Creed frontman Scott Stapp has made no secret about his demons. In his 2012 autobiography Sinner’s Creed, the Boca Raton-based rocker laid it all out there, telling readers about his harrowing experiences abusing drugs and alcohol.
In his video for Slow Suicide, the first from his solo album Proof of Life, the singer is seen bleeding and bandaged on a gurney in a hospital, flatlining, ostensibly what he dealt with after falling from the Delano’s penthouse balcony in 2006. Surviving that accident is what helped Stapp turn his life around, he wrote.
Suicide-prevention hotline numbers flash at the end of the video.
