Giggle Fest

Gary thinks party planning should always involve rose.

Hey guys!

Only one more episode to go! OK, this week -- first off, Caryl, our dog trainer was great. I'd be lying if I said we kept up with it though. Penelope just wasn't into it. And we think she's pretty great the way she is. I can live with a little barking, it's not like she's crapping all over the house or anything. She IS trained. She's just a little bossy, that's all. She likes me and Brad to be at her disposal day and night, and I'm OK with that. Jasper, on the other hand, is completely perfect.

Love Shay Mitchell! She's gorgeous, love, love, love her and thought she looked amazing! And I was so happy to hear Brad tell Lindsay what a great job she's been doing this week. She continues to be a bright spot in both our lives. I loved what she did with his office, truly. But was dismayed those stools were still there. (I hate them so much.)

Right after we came back from Italy I went back to work and also went right into serious party planning mode. I can see I'm starting to get a little anxious at the food tasting, but I was really putting a lot of pressure on myself to pull off the perfect party. And I believe you really need to work hard to make everything in your life happen the way you want it to, parties included. Although, I think there is also a time when you need to release a little control as well. In theory, anyway.

Steven Petrarca is not only a good friend but an amazing event planner, and we spent a lot of time trying to make sure everything was going to be perfect and no detail would be overlooked. We also spent a lot of time laughing and joking and having fun with the planning. He found the most terrific caterers, "Whoa Nelly", to cater our party and Stephanie and Beth came and did a crazy delicious tasting at our house. We had so much fun tweaking the menu and "sampling" (which does not count as eating) all the food -- and Brad's right, Steven and I did drink a bottle of rose. And then we got the giggles for like an hour. Do straight men get the giggles, too, after a few beers? I'm guessing no. Can't wait to see next week's episode when I REALLY start to drive Steven insane.
And finally, we went to New York for the Trevor Project Benefit. Brad and I have been involved with the Trevor Project for years. It's a gay teen suicide prevention hotline that was co-founded by our good friend, James Lecesne. ("Trevor" was a monologue from a one man show James wrote titled "Word of Mouth" and then was turned into an Academy Award winning short film that Ellen Degeneres introduced when it aired on HBO several years ago. If you haven't seen it -- you must! It's funny and touching. Love!) Brad and I have attended their annual event in LA and NY for the last ten years. We are so proud to be associated with The Trevor Project and to help in any small way with the incredible work that they do.

Was so happy to see Brad's shoot for Details, love Details, and thought he did a great job with that shoot!

Well, next week is the season finale and our anniversary party. Can't wait to see it and share that incredible evening with you! And there is a pretty good surprise at the party, if I do say so myself.

Thanks for watching!

Sheer Terror with Coco Rocha

Brad dishes on his minor panic attack during Coco's fitting.

Let me start off by saying I love my new house so much! We have now been living in it for almost six months, and every day I pinch myself to see if it is real. I have been busy decorating with the help of our friend and interior designer, Sal Messina. The house is really starting to take shape and we are so happy here! Penelope especially!

I have been a big fan of Coco Rocha’s for many, many years. I have seen her walk in runway shows, pose like no other in photo shoots, and naturally follow her every move on Twitter and Instagram. When I got the call the she needed some help selecting her look for the premiere of her TV show The Face, I pretty much jumped up and down. I wanted her to have THE best choices to choose from, and I kid you not, when we were pulling we couldn't believe how many things were sheer, but we thought that would be right up Coco's alley. Boy was I wrong! I usually have a good gauge for what people are going to love, so when she said she didn't wear anything sheer, I almost passed out. One thing I have learned in this industry is that you cannot be part of the problem, you have to be part of the solution. So I presented all of the options that I thought were the strongest and went from there. We ended up finding options not only for her premiere, but also for press appearances.She stunned on the night of the premiere! It was a really amazing red carpet moment! Not to mention I have been doing A, E, I, O, U since we filmed in November, and it has changed my life! It was an absolute honor working with Coco. I adore her!

As if that wasn't enough excitement for this gay Canadian boy, I got a call from Noot Seear who is also Canadian, also a top model, and also an actress. She has launched an amazing line of headphones called FRENDS! They are fashion meeting function at its finest! She wanted the shoot to look high fashion, but also look like her, so it was a fine balance to match all of those things together. I wanted to show different styles to reflect the different types of women who would be wearing the headphones, so we had the bohemian girl, the indie girl, glamour girl, rocker girl, and girlie girl. It’s so fun to work with new clients and see their reaction to what you have pulled for them and want to see them in. Noot was so incredibly happy with the job we did, and the shots turned out AMAZING! It was a pleasure working with her and I wish her tons of success with her headphones!So much Canadian love! Can you handle it?

On next week’s episode of Brad World, we go to Dubai! It's NEXT LEVEL!
