Vegas Magazine 10th Anniversary at Mandarin Oriental

Actress Heather Graham apparently was not happy about Las Vegas, its residents and its visitors while here filming “The Hangover” and “The Hangover Part III.” She had unkind words for our city during a Hollywood interview about her new movie.

However, it didn’t deter her from returning here to promote the second sequel or attend the 10th anniversary celebration at Mandarin Oriental of our sister publication Vegas Magazine, of which she’s the featured cover girl (for the second time).

But she remained silent — maybe moodier — on the red carpet there and wouldn’t talk with media when asked. Inside the party, she reportedly tried to make amends by asking a few of the Las Vegas staff what it was like to live here. But when asked to address the celebrants, she again refused.

I would have told her that unlike her accusations that Las Vegas is “superficial,” the city has the best to offer its residents and visitors alike, but her special-guest appearance lasted less than 30 minutes. Ms. Graham vanished into the beautiful night air and the Strip’s glittering lights before I arrived.

  1. GO ROBIN!!!!!!! Las Vegas is a great place to live and play. What kind of an idiot who lives in Hollywood could possibly call anyplace else superficial? I hope Vegas magazine has learned a lesson.
