Jerry O’Connell Parties In Vegas For Vegas Magazine’s Men’s Issue. Jerry O’Connell walked the red carpet in front of Gold Lounge in the Aria hotel and casino in Las Vegas on October 2. He was in town to celebrate Vegas Magazine’s Annual Men’s issue party. O’Connell and his actress/model wife Rebecca Romijn were at the party, along with actor Chazz Palminteri. O’Connell, Romijn and Palminteri sat at a table in a roped off area inside the small boutique lounge. Guests sipped Tequila Ambhar cocktails and SmartWater. This isn’t O’Connell’s latest foray into Vegas, however — he actually had shot some scenes for his new CBS show, “The Defenders,” in some Las Vegas casinos. “The Defenders” is a show based on real-life Las Vegas lawyers Marc Saggese and Michael Cristalli, and O’Connell even appears in a commercial for the two’s firm in Vegas. Jim Belushi, O’Connell’s costar in the series, appears in the commercial, too.
Andy Roddick’s wife cried over her first ever Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover. Brooklyn Decker says landing the coveted photoshoot is the “equivalent of a model winning the MVP or the Super Bowl.” After making her SI Swimsuit debut in 2006, the 22-year-old North Carolina native finally nabbed the cover spot this year. She told Today show on Monday, “I burst into tears like a child. It’s really exciting. It’s just now hitting me, so I am really happy.” Decker said she was just as surprised as everyone else. She did not learn that she landed the cover spot until Monday, when she thought she was just going to a casting call. She now joins a long list of supermodels and celebrities who have graced the SI cover over the years, such as Tyra Banks, Bar Refaeli, Rachel Hunter, Rebecca Romijn, Elle Macpherson, Christie Brinkley, and Marisa Miller. The blonde beauty, who married the tennis champ in April last year, has also been unveiled as the new face and body of the lingerie brand La Senza.
