Larson a no-show at Audigier event

It’s never a big surprise when Michael Jackson, with his history of unpredictability, doesn’t show up. But Sarah Larson‘s absence was another story.

Larson, who was announced last month as the new face of French designer Christian Audigier‘s clothing line, was a no-show at the opening night of Audigier’s first nightclub venture in Las Vegas.

Insiders said she had been invited and Audigier told reporters late last week that he was expecting Larson, George Clooney‘s ex, on the red carpet for the christening of Christian Audigier the Nightclub at Treasure Island.

Telephone and e-mail messages left for Twee Tran, who heads up Audigier’s celebrity relations, were not returned by deadline.

Without Jackson or Larson, the biggest stars on the red carpet were Audigier, French singing superstar Johnny Hallyday, Mariah Carey‘s new husband, Nick Cannon, and “My Name is Earl” star Jaime Pressly.

Cannon blazed down the carpet in record time, less than 60 seconds, on his way to deejaying at the nightclub, a partnership between Audigier, Pure Management Group and MGM Mirage.

Also on the red carpet: Pressly’s deejay husband, Eric Cubeechee; Jeremy Jackson, perhaps best known for his role in “Baywatch” for his portrayal of David Hasselhoff‘s son, Hobie Buchannon; actress Bai Ling and Damon Wayans.

MEDIA UPDATE

Political pundit Chuck Muth has joined KTNV-TV, Channel 13 as a commentator. Muth, who lives in Carson City, is president and CEO of the nonpartisan advocacy organization Citizen Outreach. He is a professional political consultant, a campaign trainer and a regular on radio and TV.

NO CARLIN MEMORIAL

Friends and fans of George Carlin had hoped there might be a memorial service in Las Vegas for the comedy icon.

Turns out Carlin stipulated otherwise in his will.

Shortly after Carlin’s death on June 22, his daughter Kelly went on CNN with Larry King and said there would be a memorial service for Carlin’s peers and for the public. However, he requested in his will that a casual (not public) funeral be held with plenty of R&B and blues music, with no religion at all, just friends and family sharing a lot of laughter.
