How The Gloss Staff Spent New Year’s Eve

Yesterday, you may recall I said The Gloss staff would give you pictures of us on NYE, and it would be like a party, all full of merriment. Here is that party. Maybe turn on some music for it.

This is me! And friends! And I chose the black Herve Leger, mostly because I am a creature of habit, and I will be 96, and this will still be my NYE dress.


We went to Gotham Grill. It was nice! I think the best part of the meal with the roast turbo. There was dancing, and it was a good location to people watch and play Third Wife or Mistress (the rules of that game are pretty much contained in the title) so, that was lovely! Although there’s always a little bit of forced merriment to NYE, even when everything is perfectly executed.

This is Sam:


She says:

I got drunk with a close friend in my new city of Portland for the first time, witnessed an insane bar fight between two people who belong in a Monty Python film, and fell asleep while watching the Reunion episode of It’s Always Sunny with a peanut butter sandwich in hand.

This is Mallory.

It is not commonly known but Mallory is a ghost, which is why she does not appear in pictures.

And Amanda stayed in and wore her full length Cynthia Rowley gown, which I think it very glamorous.


Jamie and Ashley never sent in pictures, so I presume they are dead.

I will be replacing them at TheGloss with the lovely Amanda – who you may know as Fabel – who sent in her picture, in which she is rocking sequins better than a 17 year old.


You can and should judge who did NYE the best. Probably Mallory, because ghosts party pretty hard.

And happy New Year’s Day to everyone!

      I know he’s done A LOT since (including screenplays, etc) but is that Danny Strong from Gilmore Girls?

      • Jennifer Wright

        Yes. He also wrote Game Change! And is doing lots of cool things!

      • Nancy

        Oh my god!! I was going to make this joke in the comments, “So you spent NYE with a blonde Sophia Bush and Johnathan from Buffy??” BUT IT’S ACTUALLY HIM?? He is awesome and you are awesome!

        I know he’s done a lot of amazing things, and I believe he won an Emmy for Game Change, but when I first see a pic of Danny Strong I think, OMG, it’s Jonathan from Buffy!

      • Jennifer Wright

        Terrible oversharing, but for the first year of knowing him, every time I realized I’d run into him, I’d think to myself “Jennifer, don’t mention Buffy. Whatever you do, don’t mention Buffy.” Fortunately, I can now mention Buffy every time I see him and we can laugh about it.

      I LOVE FABEL/AMANDA! We’re friends on FB now!

      Jennifer, whenever you write about your life, I’m always a little jealous of you because you do all of these fabulous things while looking exquisite. Now I know you spent New Years with Danny Strong and that you guys are friends and now I’m full on jealous of your life because you do fabulous things while looking exquisite with other people I have talent crushes on.

      Sam you look great! We were up in Saratoga. We hung out at the Sala gig. Good live Sala is hard to come by this far north. Most of the people hanging out were from Schenectady. I did get to dance with a Dominicana-americana. I’m rusty.

        Yeah, I meant Salsa. Alex Torres. If there were more Latinos attending Saratoga’s First Night we would have done better.
