Fear not, Betsy Johnson, the Eloise suite at the Plaza Hotel is doing just fine. (So fine in fact, that it's booked up for a year.) Yesterday, Johnson celebrated the one-year anniversary of the suite, and explained that she once thought that a certain insane celebrity had destroyed it. "When I heard Charlie [Sheen] had trashed a room at the Plaza, I thought it was Eloise's, and I was thinking 'Oh, that's not so good.' All the walls are handpainted, custom fabrics, one-off prints, you know. But it was actually Denise Richards and her kids staying there, and Charlie across the hall." Whew. [WWD]
