Fun At The "What To Expect When You're Expecting" Premiere

Fun At The "What To Expect When You're Expecting" Premiere | TonyPotts | Scoop.it

What a perfect Monday evening in Hollywood. Warm, slight breeze...and a buzz up and down the red --make that -- black carpet as thousands of screaming fans lined up outside historic Grauman's Chinese Theater. Loved watching Jennifer Lopez run across Hollywood Blvd (in that dress no less) to greet fans who had been waiting hours to say hello.

It's the same thing I've seen Tom Cruise and Will Smith master time and time again.

Had a nice chat with Cameron Diaz who told me she "loves the book...but isn't quite ready to reference it yet, if ya' know what I mean". 

I thought the film was pretty good...it's light, fun and with not a lot of cheese factor. These type of films can be pretty cheesy. I was surprised at how it moved along...it wasn't too long...(thankfully!)and had some genuine funny parts.

At the after-party at the Roosevelt Hotel pool...I ran into Chace Crawford at the bar... Always liked him. He's a nice guy. My wife loves his light eyes (hence the pic of them)  But I'll leave her to blog about Chace!

Good to see Mathew Morrison in a very funny role in the film. He was saying at the after party that he's pleased at how well the film turned out.." 'cuz ya' never know."

Andy Roddick was there...supporting Brooklyn Decker... who brought her family from North Carolina. Since the party was a bit loud, have no idea what Brooklyn and my wife were chatting about...but they looked sexy and fabulous nonetheless! 

As for the movie, it should do relatively well. HUGE built-in fan base...and good word of mouth should help.

FIRST LOOK: Watch Trailers for All of ABC's New Series | TonyPotts | Scoop.it

It's always interesting to see how hopeful and warm n' fuzzy the networks are when presenting their new shows at the NY "Up Fronts." I've been to enough upfronts to know rather well which shows will make it and which will be 'one and done'. So, with that in mind, here's a look at what ABC has to offer. After announcing the return of its TGIF franchise and moving soapy drama Revenge to Sundays as part of its 2012-13 schedule, ABC has released trailers for its nine new series.

TONY POTTS: My Thoughts On CNN As Anthony Bourdain Exits Travel Channel for CNN

TONY POTTS: My Thoughts On CNN As Anthony Bourdain Exits Travel Channel for CNN | TonyPotts | Scoop.it

 CNN is in big trouble. No ratings. Seriously, it's laughable. Ratings dip to all-time or near all-time lows consistently and now the network is falling to third, behind Fox News and MSNBC, repectively. Globe trotting 'No Reservations' star Anthony Bourdain is leaving Travel Channel for CNN. That won't happen until 2013. As long as CNN let's Anthony be Anthony (i.e the reason why CNN wooed him in the first place), it is a smart move. Networks are notorious for 'over-producing'. Over-producing rarely produces 'real moments', you know, the moments we are all talking about the next day? BTW--Boudain's move to CNN can't happen soon enough.

Among many problems at CNN, a few standout as obvious, but possibly tough for them to correct. Too many chiefs. It takes FOREVER to move on creative. The visual most have in the industry of CNN is that it is this lumbering, slow-to-react entity (not in breaking news, of course). To push anything thru from the outside (and internally as well) takes more than an act of God. Buddha may have even given up. But it's not merely reactionary, is 'actionary'. Taking risks and having a singular, clear-message from the top is key. Employees will rally around a clear message. If the message has to filter through too many managers, it gets lost and is less focused. I know a number of people who do not even attempt to pitch the network with new show ideas anymore. On the talent side, I think the ratings, mixed with programming, speak volumes. 

However, make no mistake, there many, many talented people at CNN. Give them a singular mantra and leadership that can be reached directly and their talents (and morale) will soar. Ratings will follow.

Now, start peeling away the layers CNN. Peel away.

TONY POTTS: Crazy Fun Cali-Night In An Indian Wedding Kinda Way (Video)

What in the hell is Raas Garba??? Well, I (and my knuckles) found out last night. My day yesterday went from 5am-ish until roughly 2am this morning....ending with an after party for a wonderful couple, Pankit and Ameek. (They are the main two dancing in the video, with the "headgear") First was the Sangeet...both families...a coupla days away from the couple marrying...get together to eat and dance with friends. To keep the explanation simple of the differences in dance...the groom's family is from what is considered a completely different part....like a different world...in India than the bride's family. Therefore, the dances (and foods) are also completely different. Pankit's heritage has this dance called Raas Garba. It involves two sticks, kinda the size of a drummer's sticks. It also involves you smacking them three or four times against the sticks of the person across from you...while you are trying to dance--and then move to the left to engage with your next partner.  Easy enough. Except when you've never done it and you don't know exactly how to do the routine/dance. 

Because I was learning, I was never in the right spot with my sticks and therefore my knuckles got whacked a number of time. For those of you who thought that was a smile on my face last night, it was a frozen-grimace! 

The bride, Ameek's family, is Punjabi...so the dancing is considerably more freestyle (SEE VIDEO). All in all, a great night with a fun afterparty...Congrats Pankit and Ameek!

TONY POTTS: Great Weekend, 80s Party With Kevin Frazier, Billboard Awards and More | TonyPotts | Scoop.it

Man, nothing like drinking a Seagram's Fuzzy Navel Cooler to get you in the mood for an 80s themed bash! Had a great time hanging  with good friend and colleague (in the biz of bringing all things in the social/entertainment zeitgiest your way) Kevin Frazier to celebrate his wife Jasmin's birthday in an 80s theme-party kinda way. Not sure how my wife threw together such a sexy ensemble in the matter of minutes, but damn --she looked incredible. So did my former co-host at Access Hollywood-- Shaun Robinson. You can see pics on my facebook fan page... www.facebook.com/pages/Tony-Potts/369540613062312 ; BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS: Covered them many times over the years. Thought Don Mischer and crew did a good job a making the show heavily music. I know that seems like a no-brainer, but those shows usually just stumble and bumble along...this one actually had excellent pace.
