Fall Out Boy Reunion

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on February 4, 2013 by kellizink

Saturday night I co hosted Angels and Kings 2 Year Anniversary Party at the Hard Rock Hotel with my friends; Jessica Zweig, Kevin Aeh and Pete Wentz.

When the original AK opened back in 2008, I wasn’t even allowed to attend the party because Pete Wentz and Ashley Simpson were not fans of CelebTV and thought we were a dirty tabloid site. They were wrong and I was crushed.

Since then I’ve been at several parties and even attended a group dinner with Pete- and assumed I’d gained some trust.

But when I asked for an interview with him, I was told I could have 2 mins at 11pm and could ask no personal questions.

Well, let’s do the math. I’m at the point in my life that 11pm is VERY late for an interview and 2 mins is enough time for basically one or two questions. Plus, since I was a host…I planned to have an adult beverage or two- and I never drink when I’m working. 8pm-11pm at a party I was hosting with no cocktails on a Saturday night =’s no fun. Side note: if this were for an interview with a someone who was going to graciously give me a decent amount of time and talk about something of substance- I’d have no problem doing an interview at any time of day.

So we declined the interview, with an eye roll. Doesn’t co-hosting a party for a place a guy owned and promoting it on both TV and social media earn us a little something more? How about an 8 min sit down that evening in his bar to promote his book? Nope. Nada.

Jessica, Pete, Me and Kevin. The three of us coordinated the black and white, my outfit is from TopShop. The coordinated outfits helped motivate some old dogs to get out on a Saturday night.

I ended up with a few photos and Pete saying “Is your hair different?”. He was perfectly nice and friendly with us.

The photogs asked for a shot of me and Pete solo. I was hoping rumors would spark that we were a new item and I’d reach Kardashian-like fame…but alas…

Turns out Pete wasn’t doing much press because he was planning to announce the reunion of Fall Out Boy today.

He denied the news to my friend Luis when he braved the snow and waited up patiently for Wentz to arrive and give him his two mins.

I understand the need to *break* big stories in the way your label wants you to, but whatever happened to loyalty and being cool with the media who have supported you and your business for years?

Perhaps Pete will call up both me and Luis and give us another crack at those interviews…either way- thanks for the memories- it was a great party.

Birthday Weekend!

Not mine, Shaun’s.

And Shaun likes his birthday… a lot.

We had an amazing stay and dinner at The Park Hyatt and Nomi Saturday.

 

This bottle of Rose arrived when we did, the hospitality and attention to detail is amazing at the Park Hyatt.

Cake! Big thanks to his business partner and bff Tim Canning for taking over cake duties.

We celebrated after dinner at Drumbar with our friends and then Sunday morning it was time to hit the Pride parade!

I couldn’t date someone- or be friends with them for that matter- if they didn’t support the LGBT community and Shaun pleasantly surprised me when we first met by telling me that he has gay friends and just considers them “friends” (rather than “gay” or “straight” friends). High five!

The parade was a blast per usual thanks to fun times with; James, Joe, Paul, Ari, Drew, Kevin, Ardie, and Jessica.

It’s become a tradition to celebrate Pride with Jessica Zweig!

After Pride I went to my friend Wendy and Alfredo’s beautiful roof top for Wendy’s birthday party, and left my cell phone in a cab on the way. Mind you- I was sober. Who does that!? This girl I suppose…I WAS exhausted.

Hopefully the cab driver meets me tonight like he said he would. If not, RIP all my photos and such. Lesson? Back yo ish up and don’t leave your phone in a cab.

Also- Friday I covered the EA Madden Pig Skin Pro Am and got to see all my old co workers and interview some fun celebs. Video will be up on CelebTV.com later from that event.
