London, (ANI): Salma Hayek turned party planner when the women hired to organise her daughter Valentina"s second birthday bash quit two days before the celebration. "I was terrified. I wanted her (Valentina) to love it and I hired somebody to plan it for me, because it''s my first time and she had gone to some that I was really impressed (by) and I didn't want her to feel that I did a lesser party. She quit two days before the party, once everybody was invited. I have no idea (why)... She left me with nothing," the Daily Express quoted Hayek as saying.
"And the worst part was I told Valentina that Barney was coming... and she was so excited... I invited the people, she knows the whole programme and I have nothing. “I said, ''I'm gonna do this, I'm taking over... I decorated it myself... I got the tables and the little chairs... All the stuff we cooked in the house
"I tried to get a Barney and they told me, ''No, no, no, that''s illegal... They copyright him and it''s illegal to have a Barney.'' And I''ve already told her (Valentina) and she''s so excited. I''d never do anything illegal but I was so desperate to make her happy that I did try to go into the black market... These are the things you do as a mother."
"Right before, I finally got him and I said, ''Valentina, we got Barney, baby...'' and she goes, ''Oh mama, I don''t like Barney anymore. I want Dora or Elmo...'' We fired the illegal Barney and we got Dora... There are plenty of Elmos and Doras (and) they''re legal," she added.
