Porsche Peachtree Drive

Corinna with a Porsche and the Governor's Mansion

If you were up early Sunday morning, you may have seen us.

Hundreds of Porsche Roadsters lined up in a caravan down Peachtree Street.

It was stretch for me to be up at 8 am on a Sunday — but for the Governor’s Mansion, I rallied.

After drinking coffee with all the members of the Peachtree Porsche Club, we all got a lecture from the motorcycle officers who’d agreed to be our escorts.

“If you run out of gas,” he told us “don’t try to leave the formation. Chances are you’ll hit one of us”.

With that warning, we headed down the High Museum in Midtown.

It was all to celebrate the opening of a new exhibit called “The Allure of the Automobile”, featuring 18 of the most unusual vehicles in the world.

Highlights include the aluminum body of a “Type 64” Porsche.

The 71-year old design is viewed as the precursor of all Porsches and had to be shipped here specially from The Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.

So beautiful!

And well worth getting up early for…

“The Allure of the Automobile” will be at the High Museum through June 20th.

You can check out the video in my “Celebrity Edge” segment from last week!

Party to launch my new column!

To celebrate the launch of my new column, I got to host 944 Magazine’s party for their March Issue!

What better excuse to kick up our (high) heels?!?

Designer Reco Chappele was kind enough to provide my gorgeous one shoulder flapper dress.

See that cuff on my right writst?

He made that for me — out of a zipper!

Stylist Provi lent her finishing touches.

Halo Lounge in Midtown partnered with Korbel champagne to let the bubbles flow…

And I’ll tell you it was a good thing, as everyone started reading about my love life in the magazine!

My new column is called “Celebrity Edge with Corinna Allen”.

So the focus is on celebs and their relationship issues.

But I also bring in experiences from my own life — yikes!

It can get very — personal.

It’s a new experience for me to share that much with all of you.

So I really appreciate the support — and the bubbles!

Who says 80 is old?

Corinna with Astronaut Richard Gordon

Who says 80 is old?

This is a picture of me with 80 year old retired astronaut, Richard Gordon.

Corinna graduating from Space Camp

I met him when I attended Space Camp in Huntsville, last year.

He piloted two space missions for NASA in the 60s, and since then has run companies all over North America.

He shows no signs of slowing down.

I met him when he asked to stand next to me in a group photo, then informed me he was the president of the “ILTW” club.

ILTW you ask?

It stands for “I love tall women”.

The man was 80.

I dug out his photo out today, after hearing that Buzz Aldrin will be competing on “Dancing With The Stars” at the age of 80.

I haven’t met him, but if his buddy Dick is any indication, he should have no trouble keeping up with the likes of stars from “The Bachelor” and “Baywatch’.

Buzz Aldrin

These guys went to the moon on technology generated by a slide rule.

Moon walking on the dance floor now should be child’s play.

I say, go get ’em, Buzz!

Dick and I will be rooting for you.
