Webby Wenceslas Rodger Berman Says It’s All About ‘Them’

rodgerberman Webby Wenceslas Rodger Berman Says Its All About Them“They’re like my children, I can’t pick a favorite,” said Rodger Berman, president of Recognition Media, who left Bravo’s princess of celebrity style Rachel Zoe at home, but had no shortage of pretty ladies fluttering about him at tonight’s Internet Week Kick-Off party sponsored by YouTube, the Webby Awards and the Observer last night at the Puck Building. Flanked by Kristin Kovner, who works on industry marketing for YouTube and Fox News correspondent Courtney Friel, Mr. Berman was, actually, referring to all the “off the hook” Internet Week events (he serves on the fest’s executive council) and insisted, “You’re talking to the wrong guy! It’s all about them, actually,” nodding toward YouTube’s Ms. Kovner.

But as a producer of the Webby Awards, Mr. Berman admitted he was looking forward to the gala on June 8, next Monday night, which will honor Web geeks from Late Night‘s Jimmy Fallon to Nine Inch Nail’s Trent Reznor to Comedy Central’s Sarah Silverman. Mr. Berman said he was looking forward to seeing SNL funny guy Seth Meyers as MC, although perhaps he is less silly in person than he seems on screen. You’ve met him? The Observer asked. “He’s very smart, very polished,” he said. So no Eminem/Sacha Baron Cohen type “stunts” at the ceremony, eh, Mr. Berman? Bummer.

Princess Olympia of Greece and Denmark 

The only daughter of Pavlos and Marie-Chantal, the Crown Prince and Princess of Greece, has quite the Instagram presence. Her posts include front row shots from NYFW, tacos with friends at La Esquina and soft serve at Cha Cha Matcha, all for her 98,000 followers. The Parsons School of Design student is also quite the jet-setter, spending time in New York, London, Los Angeles and Hong Kong (and that's just in the last month). She pulled the ultimate royal move and was rumored to have been dating her godfather's son, Prince Harry. She is his type: blonde and aristocratic, with a major penchant for hipster, Coachella-worthy ensembles, just like his ex Cressida Bonas. The 20-year-old princess counts Hollywood elite Sofia Richie and fellow royal (and cousin) Talita von Fürstenberg as pals. Unlike other New York City college students who celebrated their birthdays dancing on tables at Greek restaurants in the East Village, Princess Olympia spent hers in Mykonos, despite not speaking a word of Greek. Her mother worked for Andy Warhol before marrying into the royal family. Yes, her whole life is all very Gossip Girl.
