At the GBK 2008 MTV Gifting Suite at the Kress Center in Hollywood, celebrities like Jason Priestly, Antonio Sabato, Jr., Tracy Bingham, David Hernandez of American Idol, former teen pop star Tiffany, Beverly Mitchell, and Rob Buckley of Lipstick Jungle had quite a load to carry out.

While watching one of their own shows or movies at home, celebs can make popcorn in an old-fashioned popcorn maker by Nostalgia Electrics. Working in the biz means getting up early, so who has time to eat. Now they can have a healthy nutrition bar they’ve created by You Bar on their way to work or in between shoots. But if they do have a little time, they can make their favorite fruit juice or smoothie in their new TriBest Personal Blender and take it with them.

After a long night of partying, it’s nice to have The Cure. This hangover remedy rehydrates the brain and body replacing nutrients lost during alcohol consumption.

I still don’t understand why in the crap these movie stars get all this bling and free products. They can afford the stuff, make them pay for it. I think our economy would be a bit better if all the movie stars didn’t get all their stuff for free. We should be giving the homeless these things and making the movie stars pay for them, its a twisted world we live in.
