"Sober Day Usa"?
Believe it or not, this image was taken at the first annual "Sober Day USA", which is the brainchild of former O.J. Simpson defense attorney, Robert Shapiro. It seems Shapiro's son died after taking an "ecstacy" pill, so he created a non-profit in his son's honor. "The idea, Shapiro said, is to get people talking about drug addiction." Well, I guess he invited the right people because those attending sure do know a lot about it. Some of those in attendance at Monday nights no-alcohol, no-drug, celebrity-laden party at the Standard Hotel were Charlie Sheen, Paris Hilton, Tom Arnold, Ted Danson, Eva Longoria, Diana Ross, Nicole Richie, Nick Lachey, Lindsay Lohan, Brittany Murphy, Justin Timberlake, and Cameron Diaz. The bar at the party was serving "mocktails" such as the "Pom Pilot", made with pomegranate juice. It was also reported that Lindsay Lohan remarked how refreshing the "Pom Pilot" tasted, right before she used the fruity concoction to wash down a xanax and a two dexatrims. For images of the event go here and to read about how the first annual "sober day usa" came about go here.
