Andy Samberg, Overcrowding, Snubbing at Palihouse

Published

on

Lexus is holding an event called “The Darker Side of Green” right now at the Palihouse Weho,  with featured guest Andy Samberg from Saturday Night Live.

Twitter reports say that Adrien Brody, Sophia Bush and Jeremy Piven are also there.

West Hollywood Sheriff’s deputies are on the scene now investigating overcrowding at the location.  They have closed Holloway as they work it out.  A report on Twitter from Heidi Richman said the “douche quotient was high in Weho tonight” and that the event was being threatened by the fire marshal.

The press person for the event, apparently someone from EMC BOWERY public relations, shooed off Weho Daily from trying to inform the locals about what was happening, backed up by their permit and the Weho Sheriff.

It’s not like we rushed there to see what the hell was going on.  Basically couldn’t miss it on a trip to 7-Eleven.

And poor Lindsay Lohan! Having to watch a celeb frenzy from her windows nearby rather than be a part of it.

Anyway, we researched and found out about the concept for the Lexus event (not with any help from the PR firm).  They have one environmentalist and one global warming skeptic go head to head in a debate.  This is all to promote the Lexus CT200h hybrid car.

Holloway closed this evening as Sheriff investigates overcrowding at a celeb event at the Palihouse, sponsored by Lexus.

Mostly, though, the comedians make funny comments, like when Sarah Silverman told the crowd to shut the eff up during the debate she hosted.

But it sounds like the event went south with overcrowding problems here in Weho tonight, perhaps just for awhile. Some Twitter reports said that they got inside and the event went off fine after initially the impression it was over by the fire marshal.

The promotional series will continue after Weho with Jamie Kennedy in Miami on July 20, Tracy Morgan in New York on July 27, and singer Mark McGrath (Sugar Ray) in Chicago on August 8.

We got some fairly crude video of the event as we were passing by. Here are two videos. One we tried to broadcast live on ustream but I don’t think it worked out, but you’ll probably enjoy seeing Weho Daily get snubbed.. The second was taken from a distance on the iPhone.

    this event is put on by a global warming skeptic who is using lexus (toyota) dollars, platform and brand to push fringe ideology into mainstream automotive/lifestyle media.

    so… you buy a lexus. you pay for them to hire climate skeptics to put on a debate of global warming in support of their new hybrid line… make sense?

    lexus should be ashamed.

Bethenny Frankel to Deliver Half-a-Million Masks in Wake of Coronavirus

Published

By

(TMZ) — Bethenny Frankel is about to deliver half-a-million masks to doctors, nurses and other medical professionals who are at high risk for contracting coronavirus, and the decks have just been cleared to deliver them quickly.

FEMA has told hospital workers they can get masks outside normal channels and get reimbursement because the supply is so critically lacking.

Bethenny tells TMZ, she’s getting thousands of messages a day from medical professionals — many in New York but also other areas of the country — begging for help.

Bethenny is working with manufacturers from all over the world to make masks, and the number she’s making has ballooned from 10,000 to 500,000 N-95 masks and counting.

She says the masks will be available in a few and they will go directly to the people who need it, because the red tape is being eliminated.

Katy Perry Shows Baby Bump During Grocery Run with Orlando Bloom

Published

By

LOS ANGELES (TMZ) — Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are on the hunt for supermarket supplies — just like most of us adjusting to life in a pandemic — but the expectant parents look super comfy doing it.

Orlando and his pregnant, pop singer fiancee hit up a Whole Foods in L.A. along with Katy’s sister, Angela, and another male friend.

It looks like all 4 remained pretty chill amid the coronavirus panic-shopping many are still doing — and they walked out fresh produce, frozen veggies, boxes of bottled water and a plant-based protein powder called Vega.

One thing not visible in their haul — toilet paper. Let’s hope they’ve already stocked up.

We’re told Katy and co. shopped for about 30 minutes and practiced good social distancing. She went to the car about 10 minutes before Orlando. Of course, KP — whose baby bump is more prevalent these days — could’ve just needed to get off her feet.

As we reported … Katy revealed her pregnancy earlier this month in her new “Never Worn White” music video, referring to it as the hardest secret she’s had to keep.

She and Orlando recently returned to the U.S. just before the new reality of self-isolating at home to limit the COVID-19 outbreak really set in. They’re reportedly postponing their summer wedding in Japan due to the global crisis.

At least they’ve got plenty of water and protein to get through.
