West Hollywood, January 10th, 2013.

Passed hors d’oeuvres and cocktails were provided to guests.
With rumors swirling that she’s dating X Factor creator and judge Simon Cowell, Carmen Electra arrived solo. Although she kept mum about her personal life, signs hinting to a possible relationship were apparent by how remarkably overjoyed and radiant Electra was throughout the duration of the night.
VH1 reality star and teenage bride, Courtney Stodden was acting like her usual seductive self. VH1’s Couples Therapy star, was telling guests that she’s ecstatic for the release of her first single to be revealed in February. Although she didn’t give guests a musical preview, we can only imagine jaw-dropping lyrics and antics from Stodden, who casually wore 7-inch, glitter adorned, platform heels and a white mini dress. Stodden seemed to hit it off with Liz & Dick actor, Grant Bowler at the event while husband, Doug Hutchison wedged in between the two and monitored each word exchanged. Hutchison seemed unusually protective of Stodden and stayed very close during conversations and interviews. While at the event, sources confirm that Stodden is in the works of her own reality TV show. You better get comfortable taking the backseat Doug!
