The 21st Annual Taste for a Cure

Last night celebrity and charity came together for the 21st annual UCLA Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation’s event, Taste for a Cure. Over the past 20 years, the fundraiser has raised over $10 million for high priority cancer research at UCLA.


During the special evening, Eric Shanks, President and Executive Producer of Fox Sports, was honored with the 2016 Gil Nickel Humanitarian Award.  The night was filled with wine tastings, delicious cuisine, and a live auction all benefiting the UCLA Cancer Center.

New You was in attendance of this fabulous event where we got to catch up with some of our favorite celebs!

OC fans, we caught up with golden girl and DWTS contestant, Mischa Barton and she dishes on her workout secrets. “I workout every day sometimes twice a day. I like to mix it up with cardio and weights. I still do dancing classes.” She also shares with us what’s next for her. “I have a film I’m working on called The Pilot that I’m really excited about with Rosario Dawson and Kevin Connelly, and Judy Greer.” Find out what else she is up to in the full video below.

We caught up with everyone’s favorite White Chicks whistle-blowing raver, Terry Crews, and he talks about his love for fitness. “The first thing I do every morning is put my clothes on and go to the gym. Every day, non-stop, seven days a week. It’s where I get my peace.” He talks Brooklyn Nine-Nine and an upcoming venture with Netflix as well as his new furniture-making hobby! Will we be Terry Crews and chilling sometime soon? Find out below.

We also caught up with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’, Taylor Armstrong last night. She tells us about her favorite beauty trends. “I’m loving everyone’s short hair. I’ve been sort of inching mine up a little bit, but I’m not as brave.”

The Vampire Diaries’, Jodi Lyn O’Keefe was also in attendance and shares some health and beauty tips. “Sleep, water, eat very cleanly, lots of greens, workout six days a week.”  She also talks her love of red lips. “I’ve always called myself a red lip warrior. I’m a huge fan of Mac and Yves Saint Laurent. That’s the lip stain I’m wearing tonight, it’s No. 33.”
