And naturally, no, they were not.
The main beneficiary of the party was Owens' Catch A Dream Foundation. Money raised at the event will go toward aiding 81 families in the Dallas area just in time for Christmas.
However, considering the events of the last week - when Owens was involved in a controversy with tight end Jason Witten and quarterback Tony Romo, the headliners Monday night were his teammates and coaches. Romo, who is suffering from a back injury sustained against the Giants, was a no-show at press time, along with Witten, who is also nursing injuries.
Now, were it not for the post-Sunday-night three-man beatdown of Werder the night before, this would be a huge deal. But the reality is that the Cowboys came out on national television and took care of business against the Giants. And maybe Owens didn't get the ball much, but the Cowboys won, and that's really all that matters.
It doesn't mean we won't keep you fully updated on all the Dallas celebrity nightlife comings and goings, but, you may now sleep easy tonight knowing that the drama has not quite resided in Big D.
