Actress Gabrielle Union attended the PUMA Motorsport event at the Performance Motorsports Garage in Las Vegas, Nevada, yesterday. Sources say Gabrielle "deeply regrets" walking the red carpet before Clive Davis' dinner at the Beverly Hilton where Whitney Houston's body lay in rigor mortis on the fourth floor. She's telling friends that if she had to do it over again, she would have bypassed the red carpet because the fallout from her lack of good judgment wasn't worth it.
Insiders whisper that party organizers had to beg celebs to pose on the red carpet in front of the "walk-and-repeat" backdrop so the big money sponsors wouldn't get upset. Some celebs were reluctant to pose, while others flatly refused to walk the red carpet.
Radar Online reports that police and the coroner's office were instructed NOT to remove Houston's body from her hotel room while Davis' party was ongoing.
The reason given was that Davis and other party organizers didn't want a coroner's van mingling with the arriving limos and luxury vehicles.
Most narcissistic celebs wait all year to be seen at Davis' grandiose annual pre-Grammy party. They say Davis' party is the hottest ticket in town -- where you can find the biggest gathering of self-centered snobs in one room.
