Last night, I played the part of West Coast Correspondent for Fab Over Forty. My friend, Kari couldn't fly out from Minnesota for the unveiling of Redbook's first family cover featuring the beautiful Kardashians, so she sent her friend who is over forty, and dare I say, fabulous: ME!
A little after I got there, I ran into a blogging friend (also fabulous and over forty) who was reporting from the red carpet, too. Here I am with SweatpantsMom.
SIDEBAR: I have to tell you... one of my little girl dreams was to be a reporter on the red carpet, chatting with celebrities about their movies, shows, and lives. As fun as it is to get to do these things, waiting on behind the ropes of red carpets for hours while other reporters and writers shove for space is not so much fun. But that doesn't take away from the actual doing of the dream... especially when the stars arrive and all the fun starts!
I teetered atop a small ladder for a few shots, got to ask Kris ONE question for Fab Over Forty, took some video of other reporters asking Kim a few questions, and as quickly as it started, the red carpet craziness was over.
We all moved into the reception area and enjoyed appetizers, cosmos, and cupcakes. While we were noshing and swilling, a large version of the May edition of the Redbook cover was unveiled. Kris said a few words about how wonderful it was to be the mother of her lovely daughters and how happy she was to have the pictures, including some with Mason, to keep forever.
Sweet little Mason tried to eat the microphone.
Here's the enlarged cover signed by all the Kardashian ladies:
That was my evening with the Kardashians.
It was all very glamorous.
