What happens in Las Vegas usually tends to stay there, but that all changed when those now-infamous shots of a naked Prince Harry hit the internet some weeks ago.
Andrea Vanessa Hulihan, who is the founder of Belizean Bronze, also knows what it is like to be the at centre of a scandal: She was accused of having an affair with Kevin Federline in the years of 2005 and 2007 .
And after her sister, Rebeccah Gannon was captured in this picture above with Prince Harry, she also found herself the target of the tabloids, with paparazzi camped outside her apartment.
We caught up with Andrea for this exclusive interview, where she sets the record straight about a whole host of things….
Celebzter: What made you start Belizean Bronze?
Andrea: Belizean Bronze All Natural Sun & Skin Care company started when I noticed there was a huge demand for all natural skin care products. I saw that people were so misinformed about sun and skin care products. People want to use products that are good safe to use on their skin. Most traditional drugstore bought sun and skincare products have ingredients that are very toxic to the skin and these toxic ingredients enter your bloodstream. Belizean Bronze products are safe, have no chemicals are all natural and handmade in small batches so you are always getting the freshest ingredients in skin care.
Celebzter: Are you a Vegas VIP host?
Andrea: I do, do VIP Hosting again as of a month ago. I started doing VIP Hosting back in 2000 after dating music manager Johnny Wright. I was in Vegas and thought I know so many VIP’s and high rollers I figured why not do VIP hosting. People were always calling me to get them tables at clubs or to get them hotel rooms when they came to town I figured why not turn it into a job. In 2005 my name was dragged through the tabloids for having an affair with Brittney Spears ex husband Kevin Federline that made me stop hosting, but I’m back at it again booking tables at nightclubs for big VIP’S and their entourage and just making sure they have an all around good time while partying in Vegas. If you know anyone coming to Vegas who needs someone to get them into the hottest nightclubs or needs hotel room reservations made tell them to contact me. :)
Celebzter: You were accused of having an affair with Kevin Federline in 2005 -2007 where you running your company Belizean Bronze then?
Andrea: I started Belizean Bronze during my downtime. My cousin had a day spa in Belize where my family is from and she had her own line of products so I kind of joined forces with her for a short bit and now I’m on my own. Also I knew I wanted to stay out of the whole nightlife scene for a while because there was so many different things being said about me in the tabloids about this so-called affair with Kevin Federline. I knew I had to find something else to do until that all went away and now Belizean Bronze is my passion. I work non stop on coming up with new products and educate myself daily on new organic ingredients.
Celebzter: How did you feel about what the tabloids were saying about you?
Andrea: At the time I can still remember looking at my Yahoo IM and seeing a message saying something like hey have you seen the papers you’re in them the New York Post is saying you and Kevin are having an affair. I honestly thought it was a joke until I went online and googled myself Vanessa Hulihan. It wasnt just the New York Post it was all over the net. That day was like a bad dream I had no clue on what to do. Then it just all escalated from there for almost 2 years people were still blogging, reporting and talking about it. I think it got worst when Britney and Kevin reported they were divorcing. Now I can care less that’s all in the past.
Celebzter: What Belizean Bronze products were being used at Wet Republic on August 18th in Prince Harry’s Bungalow?
Andrea: Haha I knew this would come up. All I can say is that Belizean Bronze All Natural Tanning Oil & Moisturizer was being used and Belizean Bronze All Natural Lip Balm in Watermelon flavor was being used.
Celebzter: What can you tell us about your sister and Prince Harry?
Andrea: My sister Rebeccah Gannon is Director of Guest Services for Angel Management Group. Prince Harry and some friends went to one of their venues Wet Republic. There I told you something lol.
Celebzter: What are your thoughts and feelings about Prince Harry in Las Vegas?
Andrea: As far as Prince Harry in Vegas I hope he comes back so I can be his VIP Host lol. I feel really bad for him right now. He seems like an awesome guy that just wanted to have some fun in Sin City and some girls had to ruin it all for him. He was in the privacy of his own room having fun. Maybe on his next holiday he will just go back to Belize lol I have a private island I know of that he can stay at and party and not have to worry about the world finding out haha. I just got a really cool shirt made lol its kind of funny its the picture they keep showing of him and my sister at Wet Republic on the front of the shirt and on the back it says “Belizean Bronze Supports Prince Harry In Las Vegas” lol I’ll get you a picture of it when it comes in.
Celebzter: What is “The Royal Package?”
Andrea: The “Royal Package” is a kit I put together after Prince Harry left Vegas it sells for $55.00 on the Belizean Bronze website it consists of the Belizean Bronze Tanning Oil & Moisturizer (our tanning oil is a 2-in-1 it can be used daily to moisturizer your body and is great during the winter months for dry skin or it can be used out in the sun to get a deep dark amazing tan like you just came from Belize).
