I explained to Halle Berry at last night’s Rouge Tomate party that I couldn’t see Frankie and Alice , her new film, because I felt I needed to attend Scott Rudin‘s Ronni Chasen memorial

gathering that happened earlier that evening at Michael’s. She said I made the right choice. I’ll be seeing her film with a SAG group at 7:30 this evening.

Thursday, 11.18, 9:35 am.

Serving table at rear of Michael’s during last night’s Ronni Chasen memorial gathering. Scott Rudin hosted, mostly publicists attended (and a smattering of journalists), Harvey Weinstein dropped by. An emotional event. A lot of hugging and holding.
