    Maria Shriver hosted Women’s Conference 2009 in Los Angeles.

    Lisa Niemi, Patrick Swayze's widow, was one of the most anticipated speakers at the conference.

    Patrick Swayze played in West End production of Guys and Dolls opposite UK celebrity Claire Sweeney.

    Claire Sweeney appeared in the first series of Britain’s TV show “Strictly Come Dancing”, alongside England’s rugby legend Martin Offiah.

    Martin Offiah and Jonathan Davies were teammates in Rugby League’s Widnes club.

    Jonathan Davies, another rugby star, attended first Ashes cricket test between Australia and England in Cardiff, Wales on July 8 2009.

    Michael Vaughan was sitting next to Davies during that match and they were spotted sharing drinks and laughs.
