Kobe Bryant's NBA Bash -- Not All VIPs Welcome

2/18/2011 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kobe Bryant is hosting an ULTRA-exclusive Hollywood party during All-Star weekend -- but TMZ has learned everyone in the VIP section must pass a "screening process" before they'll be allowed near the NBA superstar Saturday night.

The party is supposed to be INSANE -- with organizers dropping roughly $50,000 to give Boulevard 3 nightclub an Asian-themed makeover in honor of Kobe enshrining his hands and feet at Grauman's Chinese Theater earlier that day. 

But not just any schmuck with a wad of cash will be allowed to get all schmoozy with Kobe -- event producer Jeru Tillman tells us they will have a vigorous screening process for anyone who wants to purchase a VIP table near Kobe's private section.

And for the fans who can't cross the VIP rope ... we're told there will be plenty of other cool stuff at the party -- including a 15-foot custom made dragon.

Kobe did not rape Kate Faber. Period. She was nothing more than an opportunist and she's probably broke by now after the settlement and living with her parents again. She refused to testify, took the money and ran.

Both Kobe and Vanessa are boogie A-holes...how vain are they to think people will clamour to get next to them. Guess Vanessa's forgotten she's just a Mexican from Huntington Beach.

I couldn't care less about this jerk's party. What puzzles and angers me is why in the heck are his hands and feet being enshrined at Grauman's Chinese Theater? What's that all about? That honor is supposed to be for people who are and/or were stars in the movie business. Sure, he's a great basketball player, I'll give him that...but please.

Kobe is no rapist. The girl couldn't even remember how many guys she was with that day--and her panties destroyed her credibilty...it was she says he says, and she was a slutty liar who was trying to extort cash. I don't believe Kobe gave her any cash-- she did drag him to court for weeks, Why would Kobe go through that and then pay her off? He was never going to be convicted with her testimony anyway. The only thing proved in this case was the girl is a sleaze and Kobe is an adulterer.
