Jewelry at the TV Land Awards


Diamonds and gems are usually the highlight of any red carpet event in my book, but at the TV Land Awards? It’s always the cast of characters that are the most memorable.


Where else can you find the likes of The Hoff rubbing elbows with Isaac from The Love Boat?

Or Glee’s Jane Lynch posing with Charo.

Or Anne Coulter arm and arm with… Jimmie “Dynomite” Walker from Good Times???? Does it get any better than that????

Well, it was comforting to see pretty pearls on our favorite TV moms, Mrs Partridge and Mrs “C”.

And former Charlie’s Angel, Cheryl Ladd looked lovely in a David Meister black jersey cocktail dress with diamond hoops to die for.

Earring statements shined bright on other TV Land stars, including Taxi’s Marilu Henner, Charlie’s Angel, Jacklyn Smith, and little Vicki from The Love Boat, Jill Whelan (memba her?)

While necklaces have been a veritable no-show on the red carpet these days, Joyce DeWitt(!) from Three’s Company wore a simple diamond statement to light up the final seconds of her 15 minutes of fame.

Clearly, I enjoyed the people watching far more than the jewelry this time around. But where else can you find Blondie getting an icon award or Tom Hanks slumming it with the remnants of the Bosom Buddies cast? It’s a pop culture diva’s dream come true!

The TV Land Awards will air in all their glory on April 25th.

Am I dating myself with these star sightings? Who wore your favorite TV Land look?

The Jewelry Insider

April 28, 2009


When the movie industry honors someone like Tom Hanks, all the heavy hitters come out to play. Everyone from Ron Howard and Steven Spielberg to rocker, Bruce Springsteen, showed up at Lincoln Center last night at the Film Society’s 36th Annual Gala Tribute, and of course the A-list ladies made a glamorous showing for their talented pal.

My jewelry crush, Charlize Theron, resurfaced in a stunning Lanvin little black dress with diamond cluster earrings and an icy cuff to go with her silver python shoes. What can I say? She continues to rule.

While always the effortless beauty, Julia Roberts continues to bore me on the red carpet with a black cardigan over a Dolce & Gabbana white sheath dress (apparently the same one Tom’s publicist wore to the event) and barely-there gold drop earrings. According to Access Hollywood, her tribute speech was anything but dull as she cursed like a sailor and teased the star about some of his flops.

And Rita Wilson – Tom’s better half – perhaps tired of sharing the spotlight with her acclaimed hubbie, wore an attention-getting ensemble that was half Big Bird half Bob Mackie. Good thing she has the gams to pull it off. Showing signs of restraint, she accented the look with a simple diamond cross necklace and classic diamond studs.

The evening consisted of a variety of clips, anecdotes and accolades presented to the two-time Oscar winner, whose celebrated career spans from his Bosom Buddies days on TV and his first collaboration with Ron Howard in 1984’s, Splash, to his Oscar winning performances in Philadelphia and Forest Gump and his latest project with Howard, Angels & Demons.

Previous Film Society honorees include Meryl Streep, Dustin Hoffman, Al Pacino, Susan Sarandon, Martin Scorsese, Clint Eastwood, Jane Fonda, Charlie Chaplin and more.
