I've just emerged from a mountain of work that was put off by me going to that fantastic Brutal Fruit Cheeky Cranbery Launch at The Rand Club in town. All day the radio stations and newspapers kept saying it was at Zar and I was secretly pleased that they didn't tell everybody where the party was. But judging by the number of people that came, and the huge venue, the joke was on me. We walked into a pink lit house (The Rand Lords must have been rolling in their gold plated graves what will all these blacks and women there) that was opulently decorated with Brutal Fruit paraphernalia, including a mountain a real fruit and endless supply of the delicious Cranberry Flavour, although there were other drinks on sale, people were seemingly enjoying the drinks (I had about 8) while we were milling around, checking each other's outfits and waiting for isithongo (the guests of honour to arrive). Here's how the night went in pictures:
Me wearing a Vintage sheer bodysuit and Black Coffee Joddies! (somebody asked me if it's part of the new Dash range and I was like ?????? Where the hell would I get Dash clothing?)
My friends - I don't know that girl on the left who is having the time of her life
Earlier in the day while we were all getting out hair done at Isaac's in Randburg, my friends were sitting next to Uyanda Mbuli the whole time and they made friends with her so when we saw each other later, we were all "Hey Girling" each other!
The crowd watching the Kardashian's arrival. Note how I say "the crowd" as if I wasn't part of it.
It was sheeeeeeer chaos trying to get these pictures. The groupie bitch in me came out as I tried to take a picture of Khloe
There we go, much better view
This girl looks so pleased with herself. Note the blurriness of the pics, not because I take bad pics but because there was so much pushing it was hard to keep still
Unlike her sister, Khloe actually looked like she was in her element taking pics and playing along with everybody's demands of her attention.
Kim is as gorg IRL (in real life) as she is on every picture or screen you see her on. She waited patiently as Khloe went around taking pics
But at some point she looked bored or maybe it was overwhelmed. She got on her phone and it didn't leave her hands after that. Initially I was like WTF but gaad damn, it's not easy to come to an event where you just have to smile and take pics with strangers for 4 hours. It must get really boring because the crowd was like monkey's to banana's screaming and wanting every piece of them while they sat like caged little birds.
I don't know how celebrities do it.
I think this is their make up artist - she's clearly used to this crazy biniss.
Being a groupie is exhausting (yes I will admit I did all the groupie things) but essentially this was a party and there was A LOT of boogying after all the excitement.
We might look sober but we were doozled in this picture, hence we didn't see this random guy gently inserting himself in our picture.
What a fun night we had, who ever's idea it was to bring the K sisters to SA for this party, is good at what they did. There were so many people who would usually not give a toss about Brutal Fruit guzzling it as if our lives depended on it. Thank you to the organisers, it was an awesome party and Bonang was a great host, though she's just a tad on the loud side. But whatever, she's good at what she does.
