I've finally come up for air after a hectic couple of weeks leading up to WrestleMania 28 in Miami last weekend. One of my roles was managing the red carpet at the WrestleMania Premiere Party and Charity Auction at a mansion on the famous Star Island. I organized the placement of the press, greeted the celebs and announced them to the photographers as they set off to do a string of interviews. American Idol's James Durbin, Miami Dolphins & Cheerleaders, Timbaland, the Real Housewives of Miami all walked the red carpet along with our WWE Superstars and many more.
However, the first person to walk down the cat walk, was in fact, a cat. While setting up we kept spotting a lovable black and white cat, which we called Oreo. We found out that she belonged to the grounds, so not a stray. She definitely acted like she owned the place, or at least the carpet. Take a look at the diva strutting her stuff:
Oreo the cat, wasn't the only pet to walk the red carpet. Former WWE Diva Maryse had her dapper pup dressed in a bowtie and coat. He was definitely a show stealer with the photographers:
I got to meet James Durbin several times during WrestleMania Week and he's a super sweet guy and a huge fan of WWE. He told me that he was "totally geeking out" just being there. Each day, whether he was wearing a suit or jeans, he sported his famous bandanna hanging out of his back pocket.
I've never watched any of the Housewives shows except Desperate, so it was news to me that there is a Miami edition. TV personalities Marysol Patton, Alexia Echevarria and Adriana De Moura were a hit with the local media though.
Musician Timbaland was there and he even retweeted me that evening! So cool.
