Kim Kardashian and her new husband Kris Humphries and were welcomed to New York with a lavish party at Capitale in New York City Wednesday night hosted by celebrity wedding planner Colin Cowie and Jason Binn. The couple, who just got back from their honeymoon, walked the red carpet and posed for pictures with Kourtney Kardashian. The star-studded event had no shortage of the glitz and glam that can be expected at a Kardashian party. Guests were treated to specialty cocktails from Avion Tequila, custom entertainment including a violinist, flaming bottles of champagne, and professional dancers. Many celebs attended the event including Real Housewives of New York stars Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer and Cindy Barshop, Dina Manzo from the Real Housewives of New Jersey, VH1’s La La Anthony, Lance Bass, Jonathan Cheban and Paul Shaffer from the David Letterman Show.
Ok, I admit it, I’m addicted to reality TV! Whether it’s Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, or even Mason, I always want to catch up with the Kardashian clan. When I found out that Kim Kardashian would enter my actual reality in New York City, I just had to catch a glimpse of the starlet.
So Wednesday night, Colleen Hagerty and I entered Macy’s in Herald Square. She was the perfect partner in crime, as we both are usually glued to the tube for reality television. On the first floor, just beyond the jewelry section, a small space was roped off. Now, I have to explain—getting into this roped- off area was more difficult than trying to get into the VIP section at a club. Security blocked every possible entrance. Even after being on the list, we had to be confirmed by three different people before we could be placed in the press section.
As each minute passed by, the excitement and intensity grew. It seemed like every Macy’s employee was just as eager to be in Kim Kardashian’s presence. The women working in the perfume section were in the perfect position to catch all the action as they stood on their tippy-toes behind the counters. We, however, were fortunate enough to be placed front-row right next to the Kim and Kourtney Take New York crew. (Look for us in January when the new season premieres on E!)
When Kim finally appeared from behind the backdrop, she gleefully spoke about the launch of her new fragrance. After two years, she explained, this launch was a dream come true. The perfume combines all of her favorite scents in one royal purple bottle. After thanking her fans, she then took photos with the first 300 customers to buy her four-piece fragrance set.
As we began to gather our things and leave, it was obvious that this Kardashian attracted fans both young and old. From a teenager to an older man, each was more than willing (and ecstatic) to wait in line for hours to meet the reality star for mere seconds—now that’s dedication! I have to say, this celeb-sighting not only made my day but my whole month! Like so many other fans, I will anxiously be awaiting to keep up with Kim and Kourtney when the new season premieres!
