Let me start off by saying that I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day.
I had a freakin' fantastic time this weekend -- all thanks to the people at Harrah's in Atlantic City. What was supposed to be a trip down to Jersey's answer to Las Vegas for Brooke Hogan's 21st birthday party, turned out to be a weekend of very little Brooke, but a ton of fun, new friends, and top-notch service.
We had a gorgeous room in the Harrah's Waterfront Tower, an incredible dinner at the House of Blues' exclusive Foundation Room at the Showboat, a blast at the HOB B-52s concert -- all BEFORE being whisked back to the Harrah's for Brooke's fancy bash at The Pool.
Brooke walked the red carpet (she is tall!) but quickly made herself comfortable in her private cabana where she REFUSED TO TALK TO THE PRESS. And, to make matters worse, Hulk wasn't even in the house. Really, that's the only thing that would have saved her. Instead, Brooke was accompanied by another blonde who looked just like she does (does she know any brunettes?).
Um, I'm sorry Brooke but, when you are a pseudocelebrity of your caliber, you need to make nice to the people writing about you. But she didn't. So I'm done.
Anyway, back to the fabulous people at Harrah's who gave me and my husband, my pal Jacki and her man, and a slew of new friends (shout out to Micah Jesse, Kimberly from America's Next Top Model, Casey, Erin, Heather, Veronica, Jake, Patrick, and anyone else I may have forgotten) our own cabana, right next to Brooke's, where the real partying was happening.
Brooke was a total bee-yotch but, without her party taking me down to AC, I wouldn't have had such a kick-ass time. So, thanks for being born, Brooke -- I certainly celebrated enough for the both of us.
