Photos From the Los Angeles 'Hitchcock' Premiere

Last week I attended the Hitchcock premiere covering the red carpet for SheKnows. Here are some fun personal photos from that evening.  If you missed my coverage, you can see my red carpet interviews here and a fun piece on Hollywood's favorite Hitchcock film.....if you think it's Psycho, think again.

 Jerry Mathers was in the Hitchcock film, The Trouble with Harry.

 Jamie Lee Curtis was there representing her mom and Hitchcock muse, Janet Leigh.  

 Jessica Biel AKA Mrs. Timberlake was dressed in Gucci on a chilly LA night.

 Always THE Queen, Helen Mirren, wearing Dolce&Gabbana.

Me bundled up on the red carpet.

The divine Toni Collette dressed in Alex Perry...red for the red carpet.

Media Mondays

Beautiful weather and beautiful views during my San Francisco Thanksgiving weekend.

Ahhh, is everyone officially stuffed from their Thanksgiving weekend?  I am ready to hit the trails and work off all of the delicious food I consumed, but I am not sure I am ready to go back to work. Oh well!  If you noticed, I didn't post much last week.  My laptop decided to take a holiday by having the hard drive crap out on me. So, we begin the week anew with a borrowed laptop, but I am back in the mix in the online world.  It's scary out there without a laptop!

Here's where you could find me last week all over the world wide web. Pick your favorite and let me know what you liked best:

Breaking Dawn, Part 2 on Spreecast:  If you watched last week's fan chat with Amy Taylor, we couldn't talk about the twist.  Finally, the NDA was lifted and we talked all about it.  What do you think about the final movie?  Let me know!

Good Morning, Spreecast:  I made another appearance on the morning show even though I had to duck out to do a radio spot, but I had a great time with Seth Everett again.  This also featured the breaking Elmo resignation news.

Even though I my laptop crashed, I still had to write! I had the opportunity to cover the Hitchcock premiere, so this is what I learned from the chilling red carpet for SheKnows:

Hitchcock Premiere
Hollywood's Favorite Hitchcock Movies
Oprah's Favorite Things is Back!

You can see my red carpet photo from the cold red carpet on Facebook.  I wore lots of red, an appropriate color for the evening.

Dancing With the Stars:  It's the semi-finals and our viewers went crazy because we had DWTS troupe member Henry Byalikov.  Watch the Afterbuzz TV show here:

The Radio Dish:  One of my favorite radio spots each week includes this Kansas City show, so listen in and hear the latest scoop on Ocotmom.....noooo, not Octomom!  I come in at 20:30.  

If you want the latest entertainment scoop this week, tune in tonight for a little #RadioBurtt on Driving with Gass at 6:35pm PST/9:35pm EST on KWSS.org.

Media Mondays

Okay, kids, here is where you can keep up with everything I did last week.  My mom says she can't keep up, hopefully you can??

Last Monday, I kicked off the week by co-hosting Good Morning, Spreecast with Seth Everett.  I talked a bit about it here, but the show was so much fun, we are doing it all over again tomorrow at 7:30am PST/ 10:30am EST.  You can join us at the link here.

Tuesday, I predicted that Channing Tatum would be named "Sexiest Man Alive" by People the next day. (I actually wrote an article about it way earlier on November 6th for SheKnows....that's some good insider news, right?)  Turns out, I was right.  Hear my entertainment scoop on the Tom Barnard Podcast here.

I also had a blast with Amy Taylor chatting about the Twilight camp and premiere on Spreecast.  We had a lot of great viewer questions, so we are going to do it all over again TODAY at 5pm PST/8pm EST.  Link is here. We will cover the twist and what people really thought of the movie now that it is out and hitting the mainstream....meaning my Non-Disclosure Agreement has finally expired!

Speaking of Twilight, if you missed my Taylor Lautner interview, it was posted here.  I'm also giving you my Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson interview below.  Kristen was extremely likable which a lot of you have commented on.  If you want to see all of my Twilight coverage over the years, you can view it here at my publicist's site.

And then the week brought me to one of the final episodes of Dancing With the Stars on AfterBuzz TV.  It has been such a fun ride and the fans have been responding to our shows each week.  I'm already looking forward to Season 16.  Here's last week's episode.

Then I hit the road in my ILX and went off to LAX for a quick 24-hour gig at EPCOT......that's a lot of acronyms.  It was fun getting a behind the scenes look at the park.  Here's a crazy photo from my trip or hit my Facebook page for this one.

Me and Sully! 

I had one final radio stop for the week with my ladies in Kansas City on The Radio Dish where we chatted about Taylor Swift and the new round of Star Wars coming up.  Listen here at the 20-minute mark.

And if you missed any of my articles on SheKnows last week, here are my three favorites:
Biggest American Music Awards Flops--Ouch, Katy Perry, sing on key!
Biggest American Music Awards Openers--The ladies rule the stage.
Janeane Garofalo Had No Idea She Was Married--Oh, for say, 20 years!!!

Have a great week, everyone!  Please enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday......and let me know what's your favorite dish:  mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, or stuffing?

Taylor Lautner Talks About His Abs

I doubt this boy needs much of an introduction.....but here's breaking news for you:  I get Taylor Lautner to talk about his hot abs. You're welcome.  Enjoy!

Are you Team Edward or Team Jacob?  Let me know in the comments below!

These interviews were shot for iVillage.

My Adventures with the ILX

My first day with the Acura ILX was a really good one.  Here are some of the things I did during my first day with the vehicle.  And by the way, it's a hybrid, so you know I was super psyched!

I kicked off my day by co-hosting, Good Morning, Spreecast, with Seth Everett.  We talked about everything from Kristen Stewart to Elmo to the fact that Fifty Shades of Grey is just commercial porn....and oh yeah, I danced in my pjs to Gangham Style.  That was unfortunate.  See it all here.

I drove the ILX around taking me to my BarWorks class as you can tell from my workout gear in the top photo. I decided that the back-up camera with multi-view was my favorite feature of the day.  I have a back-up camera in my current vehicle and I always say it is a necessary piece of equipment, but the ILX actually guides me in reverse.  As someone who is an embarrassing parallel parker, this is going to be key for me this week.  Maybe I will finally parallel park in three turns of the wheel for once.

A snapshot of the back-up camera in reverse with the guiding lines.  Pretty cool, right?

This shot gives you a better idea of the screen size too.

I then drove back home to do a couple of entertainment spots on Driving with Gass in Phoenix and The Radio Dish in Kansas City all while finishing up my entertainment pieces of the day for SheKnows like this one:  

Finally, I learned my co-host, AJ Gibson, and I were nominated for an IAWTV Award along with our show, AfterbuzzTV's So You Think You Can Dance after show.  Holy cow, what a day!  See the live announcement below:

Tomorrow is definitely going to be an adventurous day in the ILX as I have a screening to attend, a little bit of beauty to work in, and a fun fan chat about last night's Twilight premiere on Spreecast.

Don't forget to enter for a chance to win a week with the ILX for yourself.  It's so easy to enter.  Info is here.

If you want to join my Twilight fan chat, it's happening at 5pm PST today at this link.  See you there!

By the way, the winner of my Twilight giveaway has been announced.  Congrats to Elle A!  I sent you an email so make sure to send me your mailing address.  

Acura has invited me to test the new ILX and share my honest thoughts through social media. I may receive product, access or content, but all commentary is my own.

I can feel that award show season is just around the corner because my media appearances are kicking in to high gear and everyone wants to know who the front runner is so far.  This week, it's Argo, but we still have a solid 30 days of movies to watch.  I might change my mind next week since I have a Flight screening tomorrow.

Fan Chat with Breaking Dawn's Marisa Quinn

I will be doing a bit of Twilight Saga:  Breaking Dawn, Part 2 coverage over the next week.  If you are a fan of the series, then you are in for a treat!  I had the opportunity to interview Marisa Quinn who plays Huilen in the final chapter.  She talked all about how she got the role and what it was like on set with Rob, Taylor, and Kristen plus she took fan questions about what it is like being an actor in LA.

Check out our Spreecast below:

Don't forget the Breaking Dawn, Part 2 giveaway ends on Tuesday!  Enter here.  

Fashion Fridays: New Era Caps

Back in September during Emmys Week, I had the opportunity to take a look backstage at the official presenters lounge.  I was introduced to so many cool products, but I was definitely drawn to New Era Caps.  It's no secret that I love my hats, particularly the fedora.  You can see my hat here in Paris, in Munich, and even in Prague.

Well, a few weeks ago a package arrived at my door with a couple of goodies for a hat fan like me.  They sent me an awesome black fedora that is comfortable and well-constructed, so it's the perfect addition to my series of fedoras and travel hats.

They also sent this Boston gal a cap that is perfect for so many reasons...my favorite team:  The Boston Celtics!  Shhhh, please do not tell anyone as I am living in LA and in Lakers territory.  I know I need to mold the lid, but I cannot wait to hit the trails and wear the hat on my next hike.  

Now, if they only carried my latest obsession that is carrying over from Halloween...kitty ears!

You can check out my Emmys gifting suite article here on Starpulse and see the latest inventory at New Era Caps on their website.

Are you a hat person?  Let me know what your favorite type of hat is!

Twilight Fans:  I am doing a fan chat today at 4pm PT/7pm ET with Twilight Saga:  Breaking Dawn, Part 2 star, Marisa Quinn, who plays Huilen. Come join me on Spreecast for the inside scoop on the hottest movie of the saga.  Link is here for the fan chat:  Spreecast

Disclosure:  The hats were compliments of New Era Caps.  All opinions are my own.
