I'm here in Paris on vacation, but on my way to dinner with my girlfriend Cortney, I couldn't help but notice the rock star reception outside of the Park Hyatt Vendome in Paris. There were police barricades and people screaming and taking photographs as we walked by at 8 p.m. local time tonight.
Just as we walked by a bus pulled away with the important people inside.
I didn't feel like asking who was in there because I don't really care for rock stars. But after I returned from dinner--an onion soup and salmon later--I first spotted William H. Macy on a street next to the Hyatt. Macy, of course, is married to Felicity Huffman of "Desperate Housewives," which of course included Eva Longoria.
I put it all together and realized that the blonde woman next to Macy was indeed Huffman and that this was where the invited guests for this week's marriage between Longoria and San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker were staying. Minutes later, a bunch of Nike execs--who I recognized also were leaving the hotel.
It's supposedly on to a castle for tomorrow's 7-07-07 wedding. But I expect that for this bit, I'm getting my four-day vacay reimbursed, right?
