Celebrities are quietly gnashing their teeth in Hollywood because the good life might never be the same: swag suites are closing down! According to the NY Post, those coveted freebies like $5000 watches, flat screen tv’s, and spa vacations, are a thing of the past! Companies don’t have the budgets for gift suites any more – they have better uses for their money. The Golden Globes will have minimal gifting and few top shelf products. Greedy girls like Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, and Mariah Carey, who used to load up their assistants with gift bags are out of luck. Everyone knows most of the loot ends up in the hands of assistants and housekeepers, anyway. Keanu Reeves made a name for himself by REFUSING to visit gift suites at Sundance.

    I’ve never understood the concept behind these rich people getting all these expensive gifts for just being there. Actually, it’s disgusting.
    Maybe if we knew more about who these companies are, we could blog against them. There are too many needy people out there that could benefit from some help.

    I applaud Keneau! I agree with the poster who said the companies giving away all the products should be boycotted. Why do celebrities, who have plenty of money, get them for free? How about the working stiffs who have to pay extra for these same products so the companies can afford to give the handouts? It’s a crying shame. Again, kudos to Keneau. I knew I liked that guy.

    Mariah Carey does not give gifts bags to her assistants, I heard her say so on tv, “Why should she be getting anything?”

    I’ve always felt it strange that celebs get all these freebies. But i’m guessing that the companies who give them stuff, hope to get some sort of publicity. If the celeb starts wearing there goods etc.

    I have attended a couple if gift suite events with my husband whom is famous, but not always affiliated with the award show that is used as the reason to gift. It is really fun to be attacked with prizes, and if you need services prior to the show due to lack of organization, I suppose it will be taken care of for you. It is uncomfortable to be taking large duffles full of items home that may just gather dust somewhere if not given away, but, none-the-less, it sometimes makes you think about purchasing items again later. So if you like the item, you may want another one later, or would buy it for a friend for Christmas. I bought some reading glasses, and some ugg like boots later because I liked the products. My husband was sent clothing he has worn on T.V. But I think unless he is announcing on the show, or receiving an award, I won’t go again, that is, if they still exist.

    O.K., that reply feature is ineffectual as it should repost the original message above the reply (how many ‘Anonymouses’ might it be referring to? So let me do it’s job and never use this feature again:

    The high-dollar bling gets ’em to the function. Its sort of a doggie-bone incentive to draw them away from the mirror or pipe for a few hours and put up with the commoners who want to touch and take pictures. That, or a contractual obligation to appear and promote. Some head straight to the grab-bags and go. Its a show.
