As Mr. Parsons CEO of Time Warner gave his distinguished speech, “I believe that lady from the New York Post is here”, suddenly a huge wave from a petite figure from the audience, Gossip Columnist, Ms. Cindy Adams made her way through a media frenzy to the front where press and papparazzi were and yelled “Hey Dick its me, the gal from the New York Post”. She then looked at my Press Photographer Shane Gritziinger and asked politely “Hike me up, would ya” Shane of course was happy to oblige and hoisted La Adams up to the podium where a photo opportunity with the Gossip Diva and CEO set the press on fire!
Later gorgeous vivacious super model Carol Alt who looked especially sexy, stole the show by plunging herself onto Crooner Tony Bennett for a unforgettable photo opportunity.
