The stars were out in full force Saturday night at Elyse Walker‘s 6th annual Pink Party at Drai’s Hollywood, and RadarOnline.com was there on the pink carpet with them. The stunning Jennifer Garner hosted the charitable event, which raises money and awareness for gynecological and breast cancer research.
RadarOnline.com’s Katie Krause was front and center getting the scoop from the celebrities on what to do to fight cancer. The sizzling stars also opened up about this season of Dancing With The Stars and shared their thoughts on the new hot panel of American Idol judges.
“Cancer has affected everyone I think unfortunately and this is a wonderful event. Elyse Walker has done this… I think this is the sixth year and she’s raised over six million dollars and it goes for a wonderful cause,” said Denise Richards, sporting a lavender sparkly Alice & Olivia tunic paired with crystallized Christian Louboutin heels.
Dancing With The Stars bombshell cohost Brooke Burke opened up about the importance of the event, telling RadarOnline.com, “Breast cancer is a really important cause, it’s about educating women and spreading awareness.”
Brooke also revealed she’s rooting for Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino and Karina Smirnoff on DWTS this season. “I really hope he makes a comeback. You know, he only had five days to rehearse which gave him a real disadvantage. I think there is another side of him that people don’t know and that I hope comes out because I’ve seen it and Karina’s amazing. So, if they can get caught up — I’m rooting for them,” admitted the stunning host.
Food Network star and host extraordinaire Giada De Laurentiis got a bit more personal, revealing how cancer has tragically affected her family. “I lost my brother about seven years ago to cancer and my grandmother to ovarian cancer so I feel like this is sort of a night where we get to celebrate all of that plus celebrate women and share all the news.. and make people aware of how quickly life can go,” said the hot pink clad beauty.
Former American Idol winner David Cook, whose brother died from brain cancer, opened up about the singing show’s newest judges. “I’m excited to see how they interact. I think that they – I mean obviously you can’t really deny their talent and I think that brings a lot to the table. I’m really excited I think to see the new contestants this year because I think that’s what is going to hopefully drive the show past season 10.”
