When Days of Our Lives star and Biggest Loser host Alison Sweeney didn’t have time for work and play, she just combined the two. Along with best friend Ali Landry, the duo started Hollywood Girls Night, a series of themed dinner parties where they chat with pals such as Cheryl Burke, Kyle Richards and Patti Stanger about family, beauty, sex and anything else that comes to mind. Here, Alison shares her tips for a perfect night.
Only invite your most interesting friends.
Fun should be first and foremost when you’re making that guest list. “The most important thing is personalities,” Alison explains. “We invite a group of women we think will have stuff to talk about.”

“Be willing to open up and share,” says Alison. “We’ve found our quick-fire questions help us all laugh, get to know each other better, and also reveal ourselves.”
But try not to overshare.
Some guests get a little too personal. “Kendra Wilkinson definitely left my jaw dropping,” says Alison. “And I’ve been on a soap for almost 20 years, so that’s saying something!”
