For the first time in possibly ever, Phil Hellmuth wasn’t the biggest diva in a poker tournament he took part in. The Kardashian sisters, perhaps the definition of reality-TV-famous, competed in the City of Hope charity event at the Forum in Los Angeles (former home of the Lakers), and as you might expect, their presence created some drama that had little to do with how Kim or Khloe or anyone played Ace-King.
Hellmuth and television and film producer Randall Emmett hosted and emceed the charity tournament and helped raise money for City of Hope, a leading cancer research hospital. The event brought out the Hollywood personalities and brought in more than $500,000 for a good cause.
It also brought the Kardashians to the table to try their hand at no-limit Texas Hold’em.
But it wasn’t Hellmuth who was the star of this show. The three Kardashian sisters – Khloe, Kim, and Kendall Jenner – competed in the poker tournament, posed for pictures, and encouraged guests to donate money to City of Hope.
Celebrities who attended included KRIS JENNER, KIM KARDASHIAN WEST, KHLOÉ KARDASHIAN, KENDALL JENNER, JANUARY JONES, MEGHAN TRAINOR, LAKER KYLE KUZMA, TITO ORTIZ, ALANA HAIM, ESTE HAIM, KEVIN POLLACK, PHIL HELLMUTH, CHRIS HARRISON, CAMRYN MANHEIM, JENNIFER MORRISON, SARA RUE and DAVID ARQUETTE
The KARDASHIANS — KRIS JENNER, KIM KARDASHIAN WEST, KHLOE KARDASHIAN and KENDALL JENNER — each hosted their own table. The event was MC’ed by PHIL HELLMUTH and tournament champion was VINCE TOTINO.
Featured food and beverage offerings such as BOO’S PHILLY CHEESESTEAKS, HANSEN’S CAKES, TYLER TEXAS, COOKIE GOOD, CARNEY’S CAKE, JUSTIN WINES, champagne from the BUBBLE TAP TRAILER, and CASAMIGOS TEQUILA.
