The Carnaval Queen was crowned in a city of LA nightclub? They couldn't convince her to actually go to the carnaval? Shouldn't tje Queen of the Halloween Carnaval actually show up to the event?

Insider, the story says Greystone is in WeHo. Personally, I don't know where it is. But I agree with you about her showing up at the Carnaval if she is named Queen.

greystone is at 643 lacienega (just north of melrose) and is owned by SBE, who owns the abbey and other high-end clubs, restaurants and hotels.....i guess they were afraid the queen would cause a riot if she went to the carnaval, but our silly council people really just eat-up this celebrity crap every chance they get don't they????....not even sure why it all was necessary

Follow the money... SBE and The Abbey have funded many functions in Weho over the years and reaped the rewards of their largesse. Our council members should be ashamed that they did this. If you are queen of the Carnaval you should at least go. I could be wrong, but I think the Rose Queen goes to the parade and game. And further, isn't it just a bit too sexist to even have a Queen of the Carnaval? This whole event started with drag queens. How much more fun it would be if they were included today.

This was just another ploy of our Councilmembers to get their picture taken with a celebrity and maybe get some press outside of WeHo. They have no shame. Especially the twins with different mothers Heilman and Land. You never see them apart, do you?
