Not to be outdone, one of the most handsome men in town, Hercules himself, Kevin Sorbo was also on hand to view the feel-good romantic comedy.
We had the occasion to visit one of the most attractive restaurants in town, Fig & Olive on Melrose Place, which features gourmet cuisine from the French and Italian Riviera.
Party Giver Extraordinaire, Doris Bergman, invited us to her Style Lounge & Party honoring the 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards.
