Wait, *what* did Seth MacFarlane say at the Chrysalis Butterfly Ball? [Updated]

June 7, 2010 |  6:15 am

Seth macfarlane homeless Chrysalis, a group that assists homeless people and others, honored three Hollywood players at its ninth annual Butterfly Ball on Saturday: "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy, producer Brett Ratner and "Family Guy" chief Seth MacFarlane.

Sounds perfectly lovely, yes -- until you remember the MacFarlane wild card. After thanking the homeless for, well, being homeless, and thus giving cause to the evening, he waxed on what they're missing:

"Most ... will never know what it's like to win an award, ride in a limo or adopt a trendy black baby," MacFarlane said.

Hey, at least he's staying consistent with his non-PC brand.

Celeb supporters of the charity -- which helps struggling individuals through job opportunities and other support -- gathered for the ball at a private home in Brentwood, where Grey Goose's cocktail hour was followed by dinner and the awards presentation. 

"Glee" cast members Matthew Morrison, Mark Salling and Amber Riley turned up to serenade Murphy, the two boys belting "Over the Rainbow" before Riley stole the show with Christina Aguilera's "Beautiful." 

Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart circulated, as did "Twilight" gal ...

Ashley greene eclipse ... Ashley Greene. Sophia Bush and her man Austin Nichols, clad in John Varvatos, chatted up Jennifer Morrison and other TV babes including AnnaLynne McCord and Jessica Stroup.

Eva Mendes killed in a Grecian column dress, while bad boy Balthazar Getty wore sunglasses and smoked with a male pal.

Also at the ball: Mila Kunis in RM by Roland Mouret, Christina Ricci and Ben Stiller.

[For the record, 11 a.m. June 7: An earlier version of this post said Morrison and Salling sang Jason Mraz's "I'm Yours." They actually performed the late Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's version of "Over the Rainbow."]
