Best Buddies Participant Joins “The Insider” As Special Guest Correspondent At Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 Premiere

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 grossed $141.3 million dollars over the weekend. As you can imagine, the Los Angeles premiere of the film was a hot ticket with hundreds of twi-hard fans camping out for a week just to get a glimpse of stars like Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner.


Entertainment news magazine giants “Entertainment Tonight” and “The Insider” set up on the black carpet at the Nokia Theatre to chat with the stars and capture all of the action.

In October, “Entertainment Tonight”/”The Insider” hired Shawn, a Best Buddies Jobs participant, to work as a Production Assistant for the shows. Shawn LOVES everything entertainment, so she was beyond thrilled when “The Insider” invited her to be a Special Guest Correspondent for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 premiere.

Check out Shawn’s highlight reel! She had a fantastic time meeting all of the celebrities!

Best Buddies California and Best Buddies Jobs would like to send an enormous THANK YOU to “The Insider” co-hosts Kevin Frasier and Brooke Anderson for approaching Shawn regarding this special assignment. You both are champions for inclusion! Also, we would like to thank the entire team at “The Insider” for going the extra mile to make this a memorable experience for Shawn.
