Hilary Duff is guest starring on a lot of series television lately. Tonight, Duff visits Law and Order: SVU.
Apparently everyone in Los Angeles jumped on the freeway early last night as they rushed to the opening of Ghosts of Girlfriends Past at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. The reason is I saw a rare thing in Los Angeles last night, no traffic on the freeway at six o’clock. Really, folks, you have no idea how rare that is. So rare that I thought perhaps the city had been evacuated and I missed the news.
Don’t miss our interview with Jennifer Garner and Matthew McConaughey from the film here!
I wasn’t there for the premiere but I did see one of the movie’s stars, Michael Douglas at the restaurant where we had dinner. How cool is that. He looked very crispy in an all white suit (which is the reason I even noticed him) and I suspect he ducked in to catch the Lakers game on the TV in the bar. Michael does love his Lakers.
When I got home, I switched on Dancing with the Stars and what a night that was. Everything was topsy-turvy and you can read about it in my full recap here.I’m very excited about American Idol tonight. They’re performing songs of the Rat Pack. I’m hoping Adam will do May Way. It’s a natural.
