LA Daily News: Spywitness

By Sharon Knolle

Friday, September 03, 2004 -- YOU'RE INVITED

Can't wait for next week's Star to find out how to throw a Hollywood party?

The tell-all tab will feature a big photo spread of Hollywood's hottest PR party girls Lara Shriftman and Elizabeth Harrison's bash for their book, "Fete Accompli! The Ultimate Guide to Creative Entertaining."

But we had our spies at the fabulous moonlit fete in Malibu last weekend and saw skinny stars actually nibbling on naughty snacks such as Krispy Kreme doughnuts, Serendipity frozen hot chocolate, In 'N' Out burgers, slices of California Pizza Kitchen pizzas and guzzling Rose's Infused Cocktails.

Most important accessory at a Hollywood party? Sexy single actors. "Las Vegas" hunk Josh Duhamel, "American Pie" hottie Seann William Scott and "Blade" bad boy Stephen Dorff fit the bill, but they all looked like they'd just rolled out of bed in T-shirts and jeans.

Scott hadn't even bothered to shave. Not surprisingly, he says he's neither a great host nor a memorable guest. "I hate to leave my house lately! Gosh, I'm so boring. I better do something interesting tonight!" Yeah. We're still waiting.

Duhamel, sporting a short cut from the "Vegas" military story line, claimed to be a dud host. "I usually have some friends over for a barbecue. Grilling - or opening a bag of chips or a beer - that's about my speed!"

He certainly sped away from TV personality Giuliana DePandi and was overheard vehemently denying he'd ever dated the E! host. Wow. Talk about a double whammy: Bad host AND bad date!

"24" starlet Sarah Wynter is much better at party-tossing. "If I'm cooking myself, I do a simple pasta. But if I'm catering, I just make sure the drinks are really good and I have a fully stocked bar."

Lara Flynn Boyle was officially a party co-host. But after hanging with Wynter, sipping a cocktail and playing air-guitar to rock chestnut "My Love Is Alive," she departed less than an hour after the party began. Maybe she had a better party to go to?
