Diddy gives less than 100%

Tonight the big Super Bowl parties start. Let's hope Jennie McCarthy, Carmen Electra and their ilk give a little bit effort at their $275 party than Diddy did at his last night. From the Tampa Tribune:

ST. PETERSBURG - It was Diddy's party, but he came within an hour of missing the whole thing Thursday night. And then there was the 3 a.m. ketchup fight at the Waffle House today. But more on that later.

First, at the Diddy party red carpet, there was no Diddy.

. . . Then, at 1:05 a.m., rumor spread that Diddy had snuck in the back of the club - skipping the red carpet processional. News crews wailed. Security staff scrambled, and publicists confirmed the tragic news.

P Diddy. TampaTrib photo.After some tense negotiations, club representatives offered to bring just three reporters inside to interview Sean "Diddy" Combs, music and fashion mogul.

I was one of them, but I lost my exclusive when Diddy's people ran another sneak play. The announcement was stunning: Diddy would leave the club, get back in his motorcade, then re-enter the club through the red carpet.

He did so, and like Stormy Daniels, he also waxed economic.

"All you hear is recession, recession, recession," Diddy offered. "Even a recession has to take a break. That's what this is about."

What does "the good life" mean to Diddy, the crowd asked. Diddy responded: friends, family, celebrating in the "right way."
