Naibe Reynoso is a correspondent for ReelzChannel TV's Movie News, and occasionally shares stories from the field.
As previously reported, even though Peter Facinelli won his Twitter challenge with Rob DeFranco, he decided to give up his Twilight chair. And he used the event to benefit his favorite charities, which received $10,000 from Affliction, the clothing store where the event was held.
I was there June 30th on Melrose Ave in Los Angeles to see Facinelli bestow the chair to one lucky fan who follows him on Twitter, and to witness the losing DeFranco dance down Hollywood Boulevard in a bikini singing "Single Ladies."
Fans came from as far away as Denver for the event, which included a signing. "The line outside was unbelievably humbling to me," said Facinneli, "and I appreciate each one of them." Humble and charitable — he more than lives up to Carlisle Cullen's reputation, I'd say!
