-- Jenna joked several times throughout the night about using heroine, called Gene Ross an ass, and at the end of the show urged us all to "go out and get gnarly drunk." In spite of her joking she did not appear to be loaded.

The after party was held in one of the most elaborate clubs I have ever seen. There were three or four floors connected by staircases in different places and more rooms than I cared to count. There was food in several rooms and in a special VIP room you could overlook the courtyard to the Venetian and enjoy the cool night air. This room was so packed it was hard to move, but with the amount of women there - who cares!

There was an after party put on by one of the video companies in one of the tower suites. When I got there the man at the door - who is also well known talent - was telling the famous photographer, the film editor, the AVN award winner with his wife and friend, and myself that only single girls and couples were allowed in. I guess there are some things a press pass can't get you into. --
