Daisy Of Love Premiere Party in L.A. – Photos!


If you watched Daisy of Love‘s premiere last night, you heard Morningwood‘s “Best of Me” blasting from the TV at the start of the show. The band is a favorite of ours, and singer Chantal Claret brings lots of unabashed sexuality to the swagger that drives the whole thing. Turns out Claret is a celebreality addict well. She’s going to be hosting several of the live blog parties that will take place as each new Daisy Of Love episode premieres. Follow her lead and there’ll be lots of lively discussion going on.

Claret is all hooked up, so it was no surprise that she was part of the festivities at last night’s kick-off party in Daisyville. An avid blogger and vlogger, she snapped off some photos and wrote up some impressions of the evening. Check out her report.

“Being from NYC, this was one of the first “Hollywood” parties that I have gone to since I have moved out here.
I’m not used to waiting on line, or waiting to get my pictures taken on the red carpet, but I am willing to put up with it for the sake of the absurd, and most importantly, I AM A HUGE FAN OF REALITY TELEVISION!

On the line I was standing behind Destiny & Catherine from Rock of Love 2 and in front of Megan. I was so psyched to be in a Rock of Love sammich, but it was totally lost on Pedro, my bass player, who doesn’t even own a television. He kept asking “Who are you talking about, why are you so excited?” It was like having a TV in front of my face, and I felt the same way about them I.R.L (in real life) as I did about watching them on the little screen.

True to character Megan seemed sort of ornery; when I asked her if she was psyched for Daisy, she sort of smirked and told me to watch her show instead. Brandi M. was a hottie potatie, and she seemed like a sweetheart who was genuinely happy for Daisy. Same with Destiny, who said that she and Daisy have become “close friends.” Riki Rachtman was the cat’s pajamas; he was there with his hot wife, and we proceeded to have a conversation about true and consistent love in a R&R (rock & roll, not rest & relaxation) world. He has been married to the same lovely lady for the past six years which apparently in our profession is considered a long time. He then went on to tell me that he and Daisy still talk regularly about love advice – although as much as I prodded he wouldn’t tell me who won the show.

I also saw Lacey, who is probably my least favorite person of all of the VH1 shows. I asked her if she thought she got “edited badly,” and she said “NO, I was just an *sshole all the time” – which was bold of her to say, but made me dislike even more.

One of the most interesting run ins I had outside of the R.O.L family was David Weintraub, best known as Mary Carey‘s boyfriend from Sober House. After I told him I was “blogging for VH1″ he made a point of sitting down with me and telling me how badly he was edited and portrayed on the show. According to him, he never went out with Mary Carey, and he proceeded to save the lives of half the people on that show by being their agents and getting them into the Sober House.

I don’t know if I fell for a line of poo or not, but I listened and accepted what he had to say, as he offered me his business card. Another bonus was getting a snarky picture with Sean, the mega douche from Tool Academy. Seriously I don’t care if you are a pussy cat who roles over on the floor of the club and let’s me rub its belly, if I have the patience to watch you for six weeks and you still are a MEGA douche, when I see you I.R.L., you are going to have to realy work to prove yourself otherwise.

All in all it was an amazing night!!! While writing this morning, my one-person consensus is that I watch WAY TOO MUCH REALITY TELEVISION, and I’m sorta psyched about it!!

I can’t wait to do it again! Congrats to Daisy who is a super hot cutie diamond in the rough and deserves all of the best and most of all deserves to find love. xo, cce”
