Bettina Zilkha’s beach clambake was rained out, last night. But boy, did she have a great plan B. Huge white room filled with long white tables on Elm Street. HUGE success. Ran into Brooke Shields, who is now a local out there. Yeah. Ivana Lowell (LOVED HER BOOK!), Christopher Mason had my wife and I in stitches with stories of singing at 3 day Hamish B-day in Bath, Jay McInerney and Anne Hearst (his writers team won in baseball this weekend), Kathy and Rick Hilton, Somers, Dennis Basso, Oh, and we sat next to Steven Gambrell who had crazytown stories about touring great houses in Ireland and being wined and dined by oligarch in Switzerland. Rudy Giuliani–it was more like, who didn’t you see!. Triumph for Bettina on a rainy night!
Just got back from Jonathan Cheban fete at 75 Main in Southampton. Oh, you know, he’s Kim Kardashian’s BFF from reality TV. And I was floored. He constantly talks about his mom. And he even took Kim to go see her in New Jersey when she was first dating Kris who was playing basketball out there. I’ve known the guy more than 15 years. Of course, I’ve never watched the show, maybe his mom is on. But I’m expecting this old bag. And his mom is this seriously hot blonde woman. She was wearing a Chanel dress and crazy high heels in a bright color. Looked soooooo great. And she was really sweet. She said the thing she was most proud about Jonathan is that is such a devoted son. And he had brought her out to Hamptons for 4th of July, which is her birthday. They have very similar features. Such a treat to meet her. .. (This pic doesn’t do her justice. She was total hottie)
