Medium Premiere Party

Last night, I had the total Hollywood hook-up and went to the premiere party for the NBC show Medium starring Tinseltown's most popular actress Patricia Arquette. Medium's third season doesn't premiere until November 15th, but Patricia personally asked for the party to be thrown and invited all her celeb friends including Jason Bateman, Jason Patric, Rebecca Romijn (sans fiance Jerry O'Connell) and SNL alum Chris Kattan. Sister-in-law Courteney Cox Arquette was also there and brought along her daughter Coco. Getting all these people to come out to support you is a rarity in Hollywood, usually you're invited to a party, you agree to go but never have any intention of attending. Patricia must be very well liked because celebrities were roaming the party all night, even staying later than I did. I only had a few moments with Patricia, but I was so impressed by her. She loves the show, loves the cast and was just bursting with excitement about her big night at the ultra exclusive restaurant Grace in Hollywood. The first guests to arrive on the red carpet were Jason Bateman and his very pregnant, very overdue wife Amanda Anka, who is a friend of Patricia's. Speaking of Mrs. Bateman, she was due last week and Jason told me to be on high alert and start boiling the water because his daughter could arrive at any moment. He and his wife are adorable, I can only imagine what this child will look like. Patricia arrived and was accompanied by her new husband, actor Thomas Jane, who is very handsome if I may be so bold to say. They're glowing newlyweds who got married this summer in Europe. Tres chic. Patricia's new hubby is going to star in this season's premiere episode. He'll play an old lover of Patricia's character, Allison, who dies but doesn't realize he's dead when he appears on Allison's doorstep. Patricia told me that working with Thomas on this episode was really exciting because he's a great actor, and "I sorta just had a big crush on him. I'd look at him and think: Oh, he's cute." (I'm looking at him right now and thinking the same thing. And he's very well dressed, I must add) Courteney Cox Arquette was also working the red carpet in support of her sister-in-law, Patricia. But half way down the press line she bounced, i.e. left the red carpet and headed into the party. Well, the reporter next to me was none too pleased, so she asked someone what the deal was and this PR person said that David Arquette, Courteney's husband, had just arrived and Courteney had gone out to meet him. Turns out it was a big ole lie, David was a no show. But that's okay because inside the party, I spied his adorable little daughter, Coco, and her nanny who were hanging with mom, Courteney. Check out the picture of Coco's cute juice box and white diaper bag -- awwww, it's big bird on the juice box surrounded by all that fancy Hollywood food. I had to take that pic!
