2 WOMEN, 14 DAYS. THE GOAL? ACHIEVE BOLD FACE STATUS

SIGHTINGS: Spotted last night at a giant bash at Nobu: fashionista cuties Karen Robinovitz and Melissa De La Cruz. Karen was heard saying shes “still exhausted” from her recent Bungalow 8 birthday party that would have made P. Diddy jealous. Apparently, she was wearing two million dollars worth of Harry Winston diamonds (including the 22-carat ring Whoopie Goldberg wore to the Oscars) and was constantly shadowed by a bodyguard named Lou who was straight out of a Scorsese film. Melissa, also fatigued from the fast track, just hosted an intimate dinner party at a swanky Upper East Side restaurant attended by trend-setting journos from New York magazine, The Observer, Allure, “Page Six” as well as the indefatigable Michael Musto-and as part of the gift bag giveaway, the whole crew is being flown to Miami to stay at a five-star resort favored by the likes of Will Smith.

Asked how they managed to go from barely-known freelance writers to A-list celebrities in just fourteen days, they coyly spilled the beans: Marie Claire called with the assignment, and they simply begged, clawed, cried, borrowed, cheated, lied, stole, and bribed their way to fame. Their how-to tips to stardom include “Pick an M&M color to hate, and stick to it.” And theyre writing a book, daaahlings, so whether you live in New York or Nebraska, you too can have the goods to claim your own fame and become legendary.

Synopsis:

In this hilarious tell-all guide, join the authors on a whirlwind tour as they catapult themselves to celebrity in 14 days--and share their tips on mastering the fame game. Along the way, readers learn how they did it, with practical tips on how to follow in their stiletto-clad footsteps.

Synopsis:

In this hilarious tell-all guide, join Mel and Karen on a whirl-wind tour as they catapult themselves to celebrity in fourteen days-and share their tips on mastering the fame game. AN XYZ SELECTION Everyone fantasizes about fame-the lights, the glamour, the jewels-but for most of us walking down the red carpet remains just a dream. Not for Melissa and Karen, who on assignment for Marie Claire magazine set out on a mission to get their names and faces in newspapers, magazines, and on television in two weeks or less. This is their uproarious account of how they begged, borrowed, and stole the limelight. Follow Mel and Karen behind the velvet rope and get an up close look at the fame game, where you can be celebrated just for being there. Along the way, learn how they did it with practical tips on how to follow in their stiletto-clad footsteps.
