’Tis the season to be swanning about the Hamptons! But just in case you’re not, here’s our weekly wrap-up of what you missed this weekend.
Hamptons power-shoppers like Barbara Walters, Kelly Ripa, Lorraine Bracco, and Gossip Girl’s Kelly Rutherford bought up designer goods at Super Saturday 12, a fund-raising event for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. Rudy Giuliani was dragged to the event by his wife, Judith, noting that he’d rather be watching the Yankees play the White Sox, while Bethenny Frankel imparted her pearls of wisdom, “Dieting is just like shopping! You can indulge when you want, but you’ll have to pay for it later!” Never one to turn down a good core workout, Kelly Ripa has also been hitting up Bridgehampton’s Trapeze-Experience class, along with Neil Patrick Harris and “various CEOs.” Director David Guggenheim, Elisabeth Shue, and Alec Baldwin introduced music documentary It Might Get Loud at the Hamptons International Film Festival. Steven Spielberg and his kids grabbed ribs and fries at Turtle Crossing. Rachel Zoe, Donny Deutsch, David Lauren, and Lauren Bush noshed on Tex-Mex at the Blue Parrot, though we doubt that Zoe actually ate anything. Barron Hilton tweeted about losing his sunglasses in the ocean. Also, he says, “Just saw a plane fly by the beach with an add for a strip club. Nice to see that The Hamptons are still keeping it classy …”
Michelle Trachtenberg and Jill Zarin partied at the Georgica. Charlotte Ronson hosted a trunk show at East Hampton’s Blue and Cream. And Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters congratulated Rufus Wainwright’s sister, Martha, on an unexpectedly good performance at the Watermill Center, which she gave to guests like Calvin Klein, Jay McInerney, Anne Hearst, Nicole Miller, and Eric Ripert.
Rihanna split an ice-cream cone with record exec Steve Stoute at the Montauk Yacht Club. Shannon Doherty watched Jimmy Buffett’s guitarist perform in his first solo gig at Surf Lodge. Buffett then performed at the Stephen Talkhouse to honor East Hampton’s late chief building inspector. Isabella Rossellini and Calvin Klein hung out with fire-eaters, singing fat ladies, and a gigantic tarantula at Robert Wilson’s “debauched” Water Mill fête. The Post reports that Matthew Broderick read the Post on a Luxury Liner back from Amagansett. And Roger Wilson, Christy Turlington’s former boyfriend of six years and star of the first two Porky’s movies, has burned through his trust fund and is now bartending at Philippe in East Hampton.
