One of the most fun parts of my job (except when I have to speak) is hosting our fun Vegas magazine events. We hadn’t had a cover party since September, when we feted The Big Bang Theory‘s Kaley Cuoco at Marquee, so I was extra-excited for our March cover party at Gold Lounge inside Aria. My co-host? The gorgeous Brooke Burke, hostess of one of my favorite shows, Dancing with the Stars. Prep for these events is exhausting — hair and makeup (I highly recommend Platinum) starts at 2, plus my spray tan the day before. My emotions are always raw in the hour leading up to the red carpet, when I have to pose next to a gorgeous star. To get in the mood, I always have dinner with friends beforehand. It really helps!
