‘Love’ in Playboy Mansion

Westwood preem of Stewart-starrer leads to Hef

When you’re surrounded by Playboy Bunnies and Kato Kaelin, life certainly does not stink.

That was the prevailing attitude Wednesday night in Westwood at the preem of Independent Artists’ comedy “Love Stinks.”

Pic’s topliner French Stewart, who plays a lonely writer sabotaged by a nutso girlfriend, wanted to make one thing perfectly clear. “This movie is not autobiographical,” said the “3rd Rock From the Sun” star, clutching his wife’s arm. “I’m the only wacko in my life.”

Stewart joined co-stars Bridgette Wilson, Bill Bellamy and Steve Hytner along with writer-director Jeff Franklin; boxer-cum-crooner Oscar de la Hoya; L.A. Lakers owner Jerry Buss; John Stamos and Rebecca Romijn-Stamos; and gatecrasher Molly Ringwald, who showed up to the wrong event. (Her “Teaching Mrs. Tingle” premiere was around the corner.)

After the screening, buses were waiting to transport the crowd to the Playboy Mansion off Sunset Boulevard, where a smoking-jacket clad Hugh Hefner was there to meet and greet.

Hef’s back yard hosted Kaelin, the bewitching Melissa Joan Hart, funnyman Richard Jeni and plenty of activities, including a charity travel auction from Operation USA and a trashy.com lingerie show.
