Last night, My 12-Step Store in West Hollywood threw a celebration in honor of Recovery Month and Fix Executive Editor Anna David, whose first novel, Party Girl, they now carry. As guests guzzled soft drinks and Speaker Water, old friends reunited and new TV shows were shot. Seth "Shifty" Binzer made his first public appearance since falling into a coma in April—and a VH1 crew followed him around to capture the now-sober action. Meanwhile Iron Man 3 star Ashley Hamilton met up again with Tom Sizemore: the two were in each other's weddings in the '90s (Sizemore's to actress Maeve Quinlan, Hamilton's to model Angie Everhart) but hadn't seen one another in years. Councilman and former West Hollywood mayor John Duran joined Hills owner Howard Samuels, Malibu Beach Sober Living owners Charlie Bentz and Kimberly James, Recovery Media chairman Paul McCulley, Fix contributors Nic Sheff and Amy Dresner, and My 12-Step Store owner RJ Holguin, as Sizemore and Shifty spoke to TMZ and David signed copies of the book that details her journey from Hollywood party girl to sober woman. Sizemore, who tapped David to be the co-writer of his biography, I Can't Believe I Made It Out of There Alive (due in April, 2013 from Simon & Schuster), said he loved being a part of the sober action: "I haven't had this much fun at a party in years."
