Bonjour mon amis! Comment ca va? Myles Shaffer here. This column will be about beautiful people, an annual awards show, and another improv comedy performance, so please read on and hopefully enjoy!
XRCO Awards Show
Thursday evening, April 25, I went to the Supperclub LA, located at 6675 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA, to say hello to a lot of friends and acquaintances, have some fun, and to observe the 29Th Annual XRCO Awards Show.
Yes, Supperclub LA is the brand new home of the XRCO Awards Show at least for this year. I don't know the details, but something went wrong at the Hollywood Highlands this year. (I seem to remember hearing something about a scheduling conflict possibly on the part of the club.)
Some of the people I saw in attendance at this year's event were: Brandy Aniston, Brad Armstrong, Rebecca Bardoux, James Bartholet, Alex Chance, Kiki D'Aire, Sophie Dee (Sophie and I sat together chatting and joking for a good amount of time while waiting for the show to get under way.), Nikki Delano, Devon (Yes Devon has returned to the industry!), industry photographers Dominic and Rick Garcia, jessica drake, Leya Falcon, Manuel Ferrara, Paul Fishbein of course, and the original Tommy Gunn.
Also there were: Nina Hartley, fellow industry writer Tod Hunter, publicist Erika Icon, Savannah Jane, Julia Ann, Roy Karch, Kendall Karson, London Keyes, Kayden Kross, the always beautiful Tessa Lane, Marcus London, Miles Long, the legendary Bill Margold, Jeremy Meyer, Rusty Nails, and my Editor-in-Chief Steve Nelson.
Additionally in attendance were: Nikki Phoenix, Ed Powers, Chanel Preston, Tee Reel, Ana Foxxx, Sammi Ross, Brian Sebastian, Christie Stevens, Lucky Starr, Misty Stone, Tracey Sweet, Kevin Wang, Adam Wood, Alexandra Silk and Luc Wylder. (Retired but still beautiul adult film star Holly Hollywood came with her friends Alexandra and Luc.)
Last but not least, at one point in time while waiting for the show to start, a sexy young woman walked up, sat down beside me, smiled, said hello, and then hugged me. I immediately asked her if we had ever met before. We hadn't. She is simply a super friendly lady who goes by the name of Sadie Santana.
And now, moving on to the XRCO Awards Show, this year's event was hosted by Misty Stone and Ed Powers, and the Heart-On Girls (Trophy Girls) were Lilly Evans and Maddy O'Reilly. And while I wasn't able to catch them all, the majority of the presenters were: Julia Ann, Nikki Benz, Ana Foxxx, Kayden Kross, Tessa Lane, Lea Lexis, Adriana Luna, Chanel Preston (I have recently learned that Chanel is scheduled to be one of the hosts in 2014.), Cindy Starfall, and Prince Yahshua.
To warm up the audience, Rebecca Bardoux did some adult-style stand-up comedy.
Once Rebecca had done her thing, Bill Margold took the podium to host the XRCO Hall of Fame inductions.
The inductees for this year were: Belladonna (Actress), presented by John Stagliano, Lisa Ann (Actress), presented by Kendall Karson, Alexandra Silk (Actress), presented by her husband Luc Wylder, Jonathan Morgan (Director), presented by Rebecca Bardoux, Christian Mann (Film Creators), presented by Paul Fishbein, Rodney Moore (Film Creators), presented by Brandy Aniston, and Fashionistas (2002) (Movie), presented by John Stagliano.
