Celebrities sampled the new Bacon Clubhouse Burger, rode shotgun for the Stingray Experience, and beat the heat pool-side in VIP cabanas.

Many famous faces who attended the party included one of my favorite Glee stars Dianna Agron who was spotted out with her new man Thomas Cocquere and Leonardo DiCaprio who smoked electronic cigarettes and chowed down on a Bacon Clubhouse Burger and fries in his private cabana.

According to ABC news, its record-breaking $92 million weekend debut has earned the film entry to a very exclusive club: movie sequels that outdid their originals.

Not only did "Winter Soldier" outperform "Captain America: The First Avenger," which earned $65 million domestically in its first three days out, but the sequel scored the biggest April opening of all time, according to the L.A. Times, earning a worldwide total to date of $303.3 million.

In the “Fifty Shades of Grey,” book trilogy written by E L James, the number fifty describes Christian Grey, a man of many moods, talents, personalities, and vehicles (including jets and yachts).

With all the buzz in the media about the upcoming “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie adaptation, I thought it would be fun to list 25 shades of grays for 25 of my favorite cars. To be sure, most cars do look super sexy in certain shades of silver.

“RUSH” and “Snake and Mongoose” -- Finally: Realistic Racing Movies

Erin-Evernham-headshotBy Erin Evernham

“RUSH” and “Snake and Mongoose” are two upcoming racing related movies that are definitely worth seeing. It seems Hollywood has finally shown our sport in a realistic light.

“Days of Thunder” may be one of my all-time favorite movies but, goodness, its racing scenes lacked a lot of credibility. “Talladega Nights,” which did make me laugh a few times, did absolutely no justice to our sport and “Driven”... well, that movie was just way too farfetched for my taste. 

So these two movies, which I have had the privilege of seeing already at advanced screenings, make my racing heart smile. They may not be 100% accurate but the racing scenes were very believable to me. Both movies told great stories about athletes facing rivalry, fear, fame, competition, and personal battles.
