On the Scene
ALL PART OF THE JOB:
MidWeek publisher Ron Nagasawa, front, stopped by the Ocean Club Piranha Room party May 27 to give cover girl Brandy Leaver a framed copy of the recently published 2006 swimsuit issue. He discovered that Leaver was still in Europe, but made the best of things by staying for the "WET Swimsuit Fashion Show" at midnight. "WET" models (clockwise from left) Jenn Abreau, Giselle Pineda, Rod Redondo, Tiana Quinn DeBell, Kellie Peterson, Candee Verdadero and (center) Shealyn Freitas welcomed Nagasawa after the show.
Matt Wright enjoyed the party with his longtime girlfriend, fashion model and hula dancer Liana Green.
