Denise Hug's Holiday Luncheon at Mille Fleurs


Denise Hug held a festive holiday luncheon at Mille Fleurs December 2nd, 2009. What started as 20 or so guests weeks earlier quickly doubled. This was a girl's only lunch, although Denise's husband Bertrand Hug did pop in ... and quite a few gents made it quite clear that they would like to crash this bevy of beauties gathering.

Cocktails, a sit down lunch of parsley soup, Maine Lobster with avocado and papaya salad, and some wicked chocolate mousse did the trick. Chef Martin Woesle reigns supreme once again!

So did the conversation which flowed from topics of Aspen, Australia, to clothing, jewelry, but always back to the subject of Tiger. Lots of opinions on that!

Among the guests were Karian Forsythe, Machel Penn, Maggie Bobileff (she just celebrated a birthday), Susie Robinson, Jen Keslick (she's the girlfriend of one very snagged bachelor), Jane Carrol, Nancy Santoro, Claudia Knorr, Debbie Bello, Kelly Padilla, Adrienne Bello, Valerie Cooper (another birthday girl), Margo Schwab, Tammy Williams, and Emma Zuckerman.

More there included Barbie Spinazolla, Cathy Lynch, Susan Parker, Judy Ferrero (she and husband Lou were the Honorary Chairs for this year's Crystal Ball), Laura Applegate (one of 2009's Best Dressed), Dee Ammon, Ellen Zinn, Linda Swortwood (her husband's company had a big holiday party at Mille Fleurs the night before), Connie McNally, Tamara, Sandy Dorros, Joy Bancroft, Kathy Connor, Joanie Wafer, Karen Hoehn (big supporter of the Timken Museum), Diane Colyear, Nina Smoley, Rhonda Stratka, June Feldman, Annie Malcolm, Dianne Bashor, Connie McCoy, Lucille Lindsey, and of course the hostess herself, Denise Hug!

A great holiday luncheon by 2009 Best Dressed Denise Hug.... all size 2 of her!

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Blast From The Past

Here's the Hoff back in the day when Baywatch did a show at a Malibu location with Jenny McCarthy's 'Singled Out' show. Pictured here with Donna D'Errico as well. I dealt with David Hasselhoff on many occasions... he was always polite and knew his lines. He is theatre trained after all.

It was a great day on set.... then I went on to the Jay Leno show... how fun is that!
