Here's what some of the stars were gifted. Ain't it nice being a celebrity?
Deidre Hall (Marlena, Days of our Lives) visited the 2008 Dazzling Daytime Emmy Suite at Brite Smile in Beverly Hills. Hall was generously gifted by all the vendors with luxury items including a beautiful diamond ring of her choice by Heavenly Sinful Jewelers; a formal top of the line shirt by Eton of Sweden with accompanying gemstone cufflinks and tie, the Charlie Lapson red carpet clutches, fabulous Italian designer shoes by Devani, spiritual jewelry by Liz Alpert, the finest in skin care by Electric Body, a high-tech sleep mask by Glo To Sleep, high tech hair implements by Hai-Elite, a sumptuous menu of Spa services including a manicure/pedicure by Nailtini, Spa 415's Hydra-Tech facial and make-up, patented eyelash extensions by lash extension guru to the stars Daniel Dinh owner Twin Magic Lashes of Beverly Hills and a Teeth Whitening session by Brite Smile. The highlight for Hall was a special trip to the five-star Marqués de Riscal, a Luxury Collection Hotel, located in El Ciego, Northern Spain. Hall was over the moon about the trip and all of her lovely gifts. “I’ve never been to Spain – I’ve always wanted to go!” she said.
Kristoff St. John (Neil, Young & The Restless) called his wife and daughters to make sure of their shoe sizes and styles before he chose his selection of Devani Shoes. St. John was sort of shy about being photographed because he was wearing his funky baseball hat, so he took it off to pose for the photographers.
Petite and adorable, Marcy Rylan (Lizzie, Guiding Light) was thrilled with her new dazzling smile by Brite Smile and kept smiling at herself in the mirror. Afterwards, Rylan had eyelash extensions by Twin Magic Lashes and she was walking on cloud nine and bubbling with joy over her "new look".
Brandon Beemer (Bold & The Beautiful) and boyfriend of the gorgeous Days of Our Lives star, Nadia Bjorlin, chose amongst his fabulous gifts, a collector's bottle of Hacienda De Chihuahua Tequila, a tequila aged in French White Oak Barrels. "That stuff is dangerous," joked Beemer who decided to take it as a gift for a friend. He later took off his shirt to slip on an Eton of Sweden shirt, a few lucky ladies caught a glimpse of that fabulous physique.
Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Young & The Restless) couldn't resist taking a faux bite out of an entire Bodega chocolate display, instead he got a 5 pound box of their assorted chocolates and truffles. All the Daytime Emmy Nominees and Presenters were thrilled with Model In A Bottle after finding out that their on screen make-up would not smudge or shine after being set in place by a spray of Model In a Bottle. Christian Le Blanc listened in rapt attention to the features of the product.
Caribean Escapes offered trips to the A-list stars to 5-star resorts of their choice in Central America, Caribean and Mexico, all they had to do was pose with the Caribean Escapes book.
Deal Or No Deal's sexy Leyla Milani kicked her leg up high for the photographers wearing a sexy pair of Devani shoes, Milani also posed holding up a Syrup Swimwear bikini over her clothes in a sexy dance pose. "I am sure I can use this", said Milani about the animal patterened bikini.
Tracy Bregman star of Young & The Restless showed off her shapely legs in a pair of Devani stilleto heels. Speaking of Y&R, Don Diamont (Brad) was the most polite and oblliging star in the suite and wanted to pose with every vendor. They of course loved it.
