Atlanta’s most well-connected key influencers gathered to toast the launch of the exclusive Key Club party at the renovated Gold club in Buckhead on Monday night. Atlanta’s premiere promoters Alex Gidewon of AG Entertainment, Hannah Kang and Laura Giles of Music Business Politics joined forces to create a Monday night soiree where the elite of the industry can mingle in a relaxing atmosphere away from the maddening crowds that are so prevalent at other area nightclubs.

The occasion also doubled as birthday celebrations for Alex Gidewon’s girlfriend Elsa, right, and former model/Socialite Kim Porter.

There was no VIP area (everyone was a VIP) so Alex gave each birthday girl an entire section of the club to party with her friends. Their well-heeled guests wandered between the two sections all night.

Guests included rapper Rasheeda, 3 Brown Girl Eboni Elektra, Kandi Burruss (RHOA), Sheree Whitfield (RHOA) and the third 3 Brown Girl Nicole Brown.

Elsa and Kim each received many gifts, but Kim wore one her gifts to the party. These thigh high Chanel boots cost someone (Puffy?) $2,500 and there were only 25 pairs made.

Elsa blew out the candles on her Patron cupcakes (yes, the cupcakes were baked with Patron as a main ingredient).


Rich and chocolaty flavors Akon and Young Jeezy were in attendance.

MORE pics after the break!

Music mogul Jermaine “JD” Dupri is a sharp dresser when he wants to be. But those ‘Urkel’ frames just kills the whole look. JD and Baby Yu DJ’d the party.

Former celebrity choreographer-turned-music mogul Devyne Stephens played the corner all night. People don’t realize how paid this man is.

Kandi Burruss, 2nd from left, and reality TV personality Lawrence, 2nd from right, who makes me glad I don’t have children so I don’t have to keep explaining this look to them.

The other night my good girlfriend and I took in a very popular male drag show revue in Buckhead. I was enjoying myself when Miss Thing sashays into the club about two hours late and strikes a pose in front of me demanding that I give up my VIP seat that I’d been sitting comfortably in all night because she reserved my seat. I know she realized who I was (I’ve taken her picture a few times in the past). I guess she thinks she’s a Diva now because she got her 15 minutes on a reality show. In case you’re wondering: yes I moved but only because I was leaving anyway.

Angela Watts (AW Media Group), left, helped promote the party for her friends Alex and Elsa.

    Why does Kim Porter look like she has “double pink eye”?

  • MrsHawthorne77

    Kim used to be such a beautiful girl. She looks worn out and tired lately. :computer:

  • Quitta

    They all look like they had a good time

  • MrsHawthorne77

    LOL!!! Did I just type “:computer:” as opposed to :typing: ?

  • pointhimout

    im confused by this NESS. aren’t these the same people who be at the regular clubs? and there are regular people mixed in this crowd. if this were so private and exclusive, why in the effin world are cameras always allowed in?

    since i dont buy into the exclusive and “my kinda people” bs, this will always be a thorn in my ass.

  • http://thechoklitfactory.wordpress.com/ ChokLitFactory

    I agree, Kim is looking a bit tired in these pics, but those boots are killing me – HOT!

    Wasn’t/isn’t Eve a good friend to Swiss/Mashonda? I’ve been wondering where is E-V-E????

    Also is Uncle Luke still with his wife? I wonder why they didn’t do a 2nd season of his show…

  • VAALLDAY

    @ MrsHawthorne77 I agree with you. Tryna track Diddy is a hell of a job.

    lawrence is that his name….looks like he been hit in the face with a bag of nickels. if you are an ugly man what makes you think u gonna look good as a woman?

    “JD and Baby Yu DJ’d the party”…was JD able to reach the turntables?

  • http://twitter.com/sherita78 mizzdallas

    oh btw Oceans 7 – Johnny Sinatra looking nice! paging @daisy to hook that up!

  • mistarie

    Kim looks like and animal, I just can’t figure out which one. I used to think she was pretty, I guess because I’ve never seen her close up before. Wow, talk about being shocked into reality. Damn!!!!!!

    Devyne: You are a fine specimen, yes you are, but I know you don’t like “my” kind. *In my BEST Wendy Williams’ voice* How you doing? 😉

  • miss gia

    I got so much to say!
    #kim looks a mess on that first picture. it looks like her face is starting to melt off.

    #get it elsa, with your forever 21 necklace!

    #kandy looks hella random in that pic with kim

    #patron cupcakes – uhm ok..

    #kims boots from far were hot, close, not so much

    #akon looks like he was rode hard and put away wet

    #jeezy, boy stop. Just because your right eye wanna party don’t mean the left one is ‘downnn’

    AND OH MY GOD DO YOU GUYS REALIZE WHO THOSE TWO IN THE PIC WITH CANDY AND LAWRENCE IS ? MICHAEL AND JAMIL COLE! THE COUPLE WITH THE FIRE ASS GAY WEDDING!

    sorry i got excited.

    Anyways, I loove seeing some good looking young black people but this group is hardly it.

    #JT damn you make it eaaasy!

    overall, its always the usual suspects.

    p.s elso is fine, but her clothes are so ill fitting! when will women learn that you don’t have to wear skin-tight clothes to be sexy?!

    *goes into corner to contemplate.*

  • pyt305

    i see u jeezy…and that bald lady has on a nice chain

  • kwall

    why did i think of wanda from in living color in that last pursed lipped pic of lawrence…”heyyyyy!”

    he looks like he is the lesbian love child of wanda and martin’s sheneneh.

  • LovelyLady

    Dang Kim what hanppened?? I couldn’t even get passed her pic. I wonder is it because CB confirmed Diddy was dating Cassie and you really thought he was gonna propose to you on New Years <<— Thats what i heard.

  • EJLOVE

    Sandy those two “dudes” standing with Kandi are Married. they had them pics all over the net. and the “mess” as you called it…wow. All I can say is not every GAY man is like that…some things are just done for attention. what is the purpose of a Male wearing female clothing is beyond me….just looks stupid. but hell they can get into parties I can only look thru the window at lol so no hate…if a dress is all it takes to be the “IN” crowd in the ATL. I’m shopping at the wrong damn places…hey maybe it can get me a record deal!

  • ms_no-no

    On the left in the VERY first picture, is that a one of the Mowry twins? I know one of them is now married.

  • http://emc.com msbay

    Wow! Kim looks tired and as though she’s aging a bit. How old is she anyway but I guess trying to keep up with Diddy, it’ll make anyone look old!

    I like the sissys belt though…very nice!

    Patron cupcakes? ..not impressed!

  • http://twitter.com/LaydeeJustice LadyJustice *\o/*

    OMG @ Lawrence. that dont make no dayum sense. my son calls his kind “girly boys” :rofl:

  • http://createspace.com/3393054 iscream

    Everybody is VIP :blink:

    Not feeling the boots but maybe because I like heels. Why was Sarah there? Where’s Diddy? I just read a recent interview he did for Playboy where he is still professing his love for JLo. Damn Kim you just can’t catch a break. You are lower than Tiny. At least TI did buy her an engagement ring.

    I agree with Point. This party is no different then the rest of the parties you post on. Same people doing the same shyt. Trying to out do each other.

    Sad when the biggest name in the VIP are people who aren’t even on your current music charts. #epicfail

  • MzKaren83

    Looks like everyone had a good time
    Not really feeling Kim’s boots, something about the heels that I don’t like
    And Lawerence all I can say is WOW!

    @Isc u think that was J Lo he was talking about? We all knew he dated J Lo so I dont think thats who it was. He didnt give the name of the actress that he tried to wine and dine. J Lo did more than let him wine n dine her and thats my girl so #noshade

    I do think she is the one that had his :heart: though

    I agree. I’m not on twitter so I dont understand the number sign before everything with words strung together with no spaces eg. #wheretheydothatat or #noshade. I see it and go WTF. If it’s not on twitter it needs to stop because I’m sure many of us average non tweeters don’t understand it.

    Jeezy has a LOT of extra material on those pants ie. they’re far too big.

    Whoever said Alex Gidewon was good looking needs an eye exam.

    Andddddd…sorry to laugh, but is this the party that was advertised as the “sexy” party and that they would turn everybody away if they didnt meed “sexy” criteria? :lmao:

    Kim Porter used to be a very attractive woman. Now…not so much. I guess Diddy has her REALLY stressed out because she really looks it.

  • Chgoprime

    WOW I can’t believe Kim Porter shops @ H&M I have that same top.

    BTW, Lawrence looks at a hot sizzling mess, as does Puffy’s main jumpoff, Kim Porter
