About Dinah Shore Weekend:

LOS ANGELES -- Mariah Hanson, the founder of the modern day Dinah Shore Weekend has announced a sneak peak at her star-studded line-up for the upcoming Dinah Shore Weekend taking place in Palm Springs April 2-6, 2008.

Last year's sold out events filled every sponsored hotel and quickly became the most talked about Club Skirts Dinah Shore Weekend in history attracting press from around the world as well as the most beautiful women on the planet.

“The 2007 Dinah was by far our largest,” says Mariah Hanson. “Our `08 talent roster is cutting edge. Booking Colbie was a coup. Her debut CD continues to break records. The high profile network talent from Showtime, Inc, LOGO and Here TV is returning in `08.  Ticket sales are 40% higher to date than last year and last year we were up by 50%. Club Skirts continues to dominate the weekend through our exceptional talent and wide spread recognition as the original Dinah producer.”

Joining the stellar line-up this year is a rock and roll legend Pat Benatar as well as one of the hottest performers on the planet, multi award winning Colbie Caillat who makes her first ever Dinah appearance headlining in concert on Saturday, April 5. Caillat  became the number one unsigned artist on MySpace for four successive months, garnering an unbelievable 12 million plays of her hit song “Bubbly” she is now one of the most talked about new perfomers on the planet.  Her debut album 'Coco' was released this year and scored fifth position in Billboard Hot 200 chart. 

Also performing is “L Word” superstar Leisha Hailey and her acclaimed band “Uh huh-her” performing for the first time ever at Dinah on Friday, April 4 at the Doral.

Returning this year is the hysterical comedy of Suzanne Westenhoefer on Thursday, April 3 and the exclusive L Word Pool Party featuring a very special performance on Sunday, April 6 and due to popular demand the L Word Be-Scene returns with the shows stars on stage with their fans performing scenes from the popular series.

This year’s Dinah will also bring back the successful full scale fashion show which last year featured some of the hottest girl stars around. This year promises even more surprises on the runway when fashion rocks on with the trendy peeler Wear line. Our fashion show features scheduled appearances by Thea Gill, Curl Girls, Project Runway models, and many other special guests.  Dozens of celebrity hosts and presenters will also join in the fun throughout the weekend including stars from popular the TV series “Dantes Cove,” “Exes and Ohs” and many more.

The complete line-up of surprise superstar entertainment will be announced soon and the entire area is quickly selling out. “The Doral is already sold out 2 months ahead of schedule. The Hilton is quickly following suit. We have secured an extra hotel to keep up with the demand. I am personally amazed at the response this year. We are gearing up for another blockbuster Dinah Shore Weekend,” Mariah states.

Who cares about Tia Tequila. You guys excluded Ron Paul from your debate!

Sounds pretty strange since Ron Paul brings in more young, fervent supporters than any other Republican candidate:


This is the worst MTV development since they stopped showing music videos.

Why in the world would you have this straight girl Tila representing Dinah Shore? She is not a true lesbian by any stretch! She is just a FAME WHORE!
And she gets extra attention by pretending to be gay and taking home the guy on the show? She is gross. She makes really fabulous and beautiful lesbians look bad.
Pretty lame and shallow to choose someone who does not even remotely showcase a talented gay woman.

Really enjoyed reading your blog post. I will have to bookmark your site for later.
