Political hopeful Levi Johnston surfaces at 'ET' Emmy party
Like him or not, it seems fitting that Levi Johnston attend Emmy Awards festivities -- after all, he simply won't stop gunning for a television show of his own.
Attend he did "Entertainment Tonight's" post-Emmy event at Vibiana in downtown Los Angeles, where Cyndi Lauper was tapped to perform for a crowd of winners, nominees and media pros.
Johnston wasn't the only notable pop-culture name to attend -- reality mom Kate Gosselin showed up after appearing in the award ceremony's opening number and even hosted a few segments for "ET's" broadcast from inside the bash.

Actor Jeremy London stuck to the outdoor patio, gazing at guests like Christina Hendricks and Bryan Batt of "Mad Men," Peter Facinelli of "Nurse Jackie" and "The Twilight Saga," Christopher Meloni of "Law & Order: SVU," LL Cool J of "NCIS: Los Angeles," "SNL" player Ana Gasteyer, "ET" host Laura Spencer, "The Bachelorette" star Ali Fedotowsky and stylist pal Lindsay Albanese.
Guests were treated to a Magnolia Bakery pop-up and a beauty product bar from Neutrogena, and after Lauper's performance danced into the night to the sounds of DJ Samantha Ronson.
