Dirty Martini | Week in Review

Celeb 411
Tyler Perry (smh) is being sued by a man professing that Tyler's new movie "Temptation" is his story.  William Jones is claiming that he gave the script to someone at Harpo Studios that said she would get it into Tyler's hands.  Now doesn't he know that Oprah had a disclaimer that if you don't deal with her directly you are taking matters into your own hands?  Well the suit is asking for Jones to receive proper crediting for the movie as well as unspecified damages and other relief.  Okay sir we all have written a script or two that Tyler has "stolen" for a movie (side eye).  Keep it movin!

Reality Recap

The Housewife of OC is getting a new husband!  Yep Gretchen Rossi has asked her beau Slade to marry her.  Yes she proposed!  Gretchen is being quoted as saying, "I'm in love with the man and I needed to take the plunge."  Don't worry all you Vickie was right fans...Slade followed up with his own ring for Gretchen and we'll have to say it's a real knock out!  Congrats love-bugs!

Style DIVA Adventures

It was a roller skating kind of week over may way in Sunny California.  Being that it was National Volunteer Appreciation Week I had events planned all week for my adult and junior volunteers.  It was great fun but also tiring.  Add on top of that a lavish employee service award Red Carpet celebration and BAM this DIVA needed some R&R this weekend that she never got.  That's because I had to hike it down to Santa Barbara for the Hyundai Epic Play Date.  You can read more about that on our blog here.  Don't feel sorry for this girl, she loves every minute of it.  Cheers till next week!

Cocktail Erika’s Cocktail of the Week

Strawberry Basil Margaritas 
Makes 1 pitcher, or about 8 servings

1 can (12 ounces) frozen limeade concentrate
10 strawberries (or 12 if you're using smaller ones from the farmer's market or your backyard.)
8 basil leaves
2 to 2 1/2 cups tequila (gold or silver)
Mixing Instructions
Empty the limeade concentrate into a pitcher. Add 2 1/2 cans of water and 1 1/2 (18 ounces, or 2 1/4 cups) cans of tequila (or a bit less, if you don't want your drinks to be quite as strong).
Hull the strawberries, slice lengthwise, and add to the pitcher. Crumple the basil a little in your hands (this will help the basil flavor release into the drink) and add it to the pitcher, too. Place the pitcher, covered, in the fridge overnight, or for at least four hours.
When you remove the pitcher from the fridge, your margaritas will be a lovely pale pink color. Now all you have to do is serve them and wait for the compliments to pour in.
