For Mother’s Day, a Lifetime television poll named a real Fox as the No. 1 person women across the country would love to have “tuck them in” at night, and they’d prefer that his first name be Matthew. The Hawaii resident and
Lost television actor found himself as the No. 1 choice women dream about as they are getting ready to call it a night. Although it may be a shot in the dark to have him pull the sheets up over you, I hear we have a better chance of seeing him wrestling with buddies on a Windward Oahu beach late at night under the full moon. Wish I could personally confirm that one, but at least the sources are night vision certified. ... A place with better luck of getting tucked in was at Party Masters’ Justin Yoshino‘s BED Party at the Sheraton Moana Surfrider Hotel. The Ship’s Tavern restaurant was transformed into a similar celebrity hotspot nightclub to the one in South Beach by the same name. The place was packed with models and, yes, some were dressed in sexy bedroom attire.

On the Diamond Head side of the room, former Miss Hawaii Teen USA Sunny Kana’iaupuni (Keaulana) and her sexy gal pals had a swank velvety lined comforter sprawled over their ocean view bedroom set. But it wasn’t easy getting into bed with these ladies, as they were quick to “shoe” (my way of saying kick) the men away who were looking for a pretty place to rest. Way to go, ladies!!

stopped by with her hubby after anchoring the 10 o’clock newscast. Meanwhile, Honolulu brat packers Jeffrey Williams, Aimee Aguilar and someone who looks remarkably like one of my brothers hung out at Mango Moon owner Gary Skinner‘s stage-side table. By the way, Skinner celebrated his big 28th birthday (wink, wink, I promised I wouldn’t divulge his real age) at Club 35 downtown Friday. KHNL anchor Paul Drewes toasted the birthday boy in the courtyard, along with about 60 other well-wishers. ... About 30 feet away, another party was in full swing, as sports anchors Liz Chun and Steve Uyehara were spotted with KGMB’s Lisa Kubota cheering Mike Cherry into drinking a shot. He didn’t actually need too much encouragement. Mike was celebrating his 28th birthday that night as well - this is Mike’s real age, by the way (sorry again, Gary). ... The toy company HASBRO announced it is launching a new line of dolls designed after the pop musical group The Pussycat Dolls. The sexy singing sensations’ chart topper, Don’t Cha, catapulted lead singer and Hawaii-born talent Nicole Sherzinger into instant worldwide fame. But don’t cha go running into Toys ‘R Us just yet. The new line will not be available until the upcoming winter holiday season. This is not the same group of performers in the burlesque show at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. That version of the Pussycat Dolls aired their new cast of auditions on the Bravo reality series Blow Out. The show’s passionate and dramatic star Jonathan Antin made an appearance at Ala Moana Centerstage to promote his product line.

Local beauties former Miss Hawaii USA Jennifer Fairbank and the current crown holder Radasha Ho’ohuli helped keep channel surfers from changing the station. Backstage, Jonathan asked some of the models if he was boring, and they kindly responded with a “no.” (snore). ... Ho’ohuli was looking beautiful again on Saturday at Russell Tanoue‘s Playboy Pajama Party hosted by Playmate Courtney Culkin. KHNL’s Cindy Paliracio was in the house filming a “behind-the-scenes” piece with video journalist Joel Ugay. Also making a red carpet appearance was KHON’s John Veneri and KGMB’s Steve Uyehara (boy, he gets around). ... Ho’ohuli recently competed in the Miss USA competition, where my favorite fashion critic and fellow blond club member Carson Kressley of Queer Eye was special commentator. The last time he was in Hawaii, he told me at a party that he stands out in a crowd here because so many people are dark-haired. BTW: “blond” is not misspelled. Did you know the word “blonde,” when used to describe a male, is spelled without the “e” at the end? Which brings me to this week’s blonde highlight, or maybe this one’s more like a blonde moment: What’s a “blond” with a little “e"xtra missing from one end? Either a man, or a brunette who needs to get her roots done.

BlondEs really are fun, aren’t they?
