The Creeks Halts Traffic on 27: Apollo in the Hamptons

August 21st, 2016

The Creeks was a focal point in the Hamptons last night, because Ron Perelman gave his annual Apollo in the Hamptons bash.  The not so humble estate was of course was originally the house of the Gerald Murphys–F. Scott Fitzgerald’s famously well heeled pals.  And it once came with 400 acres on Georgica pond.  Meanwhile, on Saturday night, Perelman had a cop out front. The large police  vehicle had it’s lights running as if there had been an accident. And they were checking in each guest with such care it brought traffic to a standstill for a mile in each direction on Route 27.  So there was really no easy route to travel from Montauk and Southampton–just in case you happened to, ahem,  have a heart attack.  All for a terrific cause, mind you.

Meanwhile, inside the dreamy estate, guests were seated at series of long tables, with rattan fans as name cards in the August heat with the table numbers atop a tall stick. For example, Ron sat next to Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton, who was across from Lionle Richie.  Blake loaded up his plate with pulled BBQ, chicken, corn.  Also spotted Ron Mugging with Jack Nicholson, wearing rose colored glasses, also with a full plate, while he was eating.  Benny Medina was on J.Lo’s arm.

Mr. Perelman, with a C on his cap, presumably for The Creeks, smooched Robert Kraft on the cheek at one point.

As usual, you kind of couldn’t believe who was there:  Colin Powell, Governor Cuomo, Mayor De Blasio

Katie Holmes, in a lacy gown, was paling around with Georgina Chapman.  Holmes was clearly loosening up eventually as one strap her dress was hanging.

Christie Brinkley and Ciara, both with big hair, hugged for a  photog.

Jon Bon Jovi performed.

And the performances went on and on with Shelton and Stefani killing it onstage. “If you really need a brand new start“,” he crooned.  ”Why don’t you go ahead and break my heart?”  Kirk Douglas (not the old one) and Pharell Williams performed.  The Roots.  Lionel Richie.

Pharell and Gwen did a duo onstage, with Gwen belting out Hollaback Girl, and the “This is my shit” chorus over and over.” She wore those drop pants Bieber was famous for.

Lionel Richie did a melting rendition of “Hello.”

Ciara entertained  in plunging dress with boots and a dress that had a couple of broad slits.

John McEnroe wore all black with a chain around his neck going rocker with his wife, Patty Smithe.

Don Johnson and Bon Jovi mugged together.

Oh, yes, and Perelman, Ciara, Usher, Chris Rock, and Don Johnson blasted out “All Night Long” onstage.

Yeah, they did. 14117770_1790346904545605_4823210952302629571_n

Happy Birthday Jennifer

July 24th, 2013

DownloadedFileBirthday gal Jennifer Lopez–44 today!–wearing a Lulue cuffed pant romper by ALICE +OLIVIA by Stacy Bendet out with Casper in East Hampton. He does have cool tats. I am told that she’s really enjoying the new house. His cut off shorts are also cool. Love that they are enjoying my home town on the big day! FYI, those signs tell all traffic to stop when they get off the curb, and there are usually cops also in sunglasses, there to enforce. So all eyes must have been on them. Best wishes. Thrilled that you are finding your bliss…. click on pic to see full image

Jennifer Lopez Bday Fete on East End

July 20th, 2013

Just a normal weekend on the East End. Oh, and did I mention that Jennifer Lopez had a fab birthday fete at her new $10 million beach house. A few summers back she stayed with LA Reid and I guess she fell in love with Watermill.
A Bentley Motors brunch took place at $26 million house in Bridge horse country that appeared to be mostly land. Fun to drive through the fields when I got my car back on the way out. Nick Gruber was there, and of course, everyone came up to me to mention that “Calvin’s” ex was texting furiously to hook up with a woman this weekend. Can’t we all just let people follow their, er, heart? Love in the age of texting and tweeting.
Also spotted Marushka Hargitay in Library for the Magic act at Children’s museum this morn. And Nina Garcia at grocery store in East–during the week. Tons and tons of fetes tonight. But I’m most excited about ACRIA and white party at LongHouse, where Ai Wei WEi has his animal heads (based on ones at porcelain palace).
Oh, and a friend came up to me at polo on Sat. and mentioned lots of trucks bringing stuff to Jennifer’s and they had confirmed to a neighbor that it was a fete. Her birthday isn’t until Wednesday, but you try to get everyone together at the beach mid week. Just doesn’t work.
Christie Brinkley did the coin toss at Polo. Wearing Ralph (orange dress). Fifi Water really treated me great at Hilary Duff event at The Estate. She is so sweet and pretty. Really elegant up there, and they made little bags of candy for my kids. LOOOOVED. Makes such a difference when the valets are great, get you in and out, golf cart people really efficient, call for your car ahead. One word, Macaroons! Blueberry and pineapple. Yum. Duff has 15-month old…
And tonight, at ACRIA, Barry the inspired sound guy, it turned out, was also doing Jennifer Lopez fete. Small world. Great choice. Great taste… 440x660 (4)5491974440x660 (7)
