Tigger, great idea! Did you think of it when you were hanging out with Demi/Ashton/Bruce at Sundance or as a guest at Eddy Murphy's fake wedding or schmoozing with Heidi and Seal at that Versace Fashion thingy?? Do tell, enquiring minds want to know...

Tigger - 2008-02-15: 02:46:00
Oh, the Versace thing! Wasn't that just absolutely fab? All my peeps were there and... Well no, I wasn't actually there, but I uh — I read all about it. I could've gone, but I was still distraught over the Pam Anderson divorce. [Ok, I'm giving myself the creeps now — I hate people who talk like that!]
