Thousands of Crazed Tweens Storm Texas Firm
This just in from our entertainment ... er, Texas division: Houston's Lanier Law Firm has survived its annual holiday party, despite a deluge of thousands of screaming, dancing preteen girls. It was not W. Mark Lanier, the firm's dapper founding partner, who attracted the tweens, but the party's big-name entertainer, teen pop star Miley Cyrus. I cannot tell from her post at Tex Parte Blog whether Brenda Sapino Jeffreys was one of the 8,600 guests who attended the bash on the grounds of Lanier's home, but she reports that the event raised a covered wagon full of school supplies and more than $250,000 for the charity Guatemala SANA.
Lanier's lips were locked on how much it cost him to have Cyrus entertain at his party. He did say she performed at a reduced fee in order to support the charity. It appears he got his money's worth, with Cyrus performing for 90 minutes -- twice the time she was booked and the longest nonstop show she has ever performed. And, yes, there were those tweens, thousands of them, Jeffreys writes, screaming and dancing on Lanier's lawn.
All good, I suppose, save for the vexing question of how Lanier outdoes himself next year. Who can top the world's biggest teen pop star? Lanier's not saying, but he did confirm that he and his wife Becky recently met with the knight fantastic of British rock and pop, Sir Elton John. The couple had dinner with John at his house. If it is to be John for next year's bash, then this year's thousands of tween dancers could be followed next year by one Tiny Dancer.
