AMY SCHUMER: BACK TO THE FUTURE

Amy Schumer celebrated what she called her “second 40th birthday” – her 41st- at a place we didn’t know existed- the TWA Hotel. The TWA hotel opened in the fabulous old Pan Am airline building at JFK that opened in 1962- designed by Eero Saarinen. We were lucky to have traveled on Pan Am more than once and the building’s futuristic feeling was always thrilling. It was the first time we remember feeling architectural excitement. SO glad the building was saved when it became too small for modern planes. The hotel opened before the pandemic and is lucky to still be around. All furnishings are midcentury modern and a vintage plane has been turned into a cocktail bar. All this and it’s dog-friendly! Amy and friends had a great time exploring and partying all weekend.

GOOD LOOKS RUN IN THE HADID FAMILY, NO THANKS TO MOHAMED

If you think the Kardashians are a good looking family, take a close look at the Hadids. Bella Hadid posted this photo of herself, her mother Yolanda, and her sister Gigi from the late 90’s to celebrate Yolanda’s birthday. Born in Holland, Yolanda was a successful model before she married questionable real estate developer Mohamed Hadid back in 1994. They split after six years, but had three children (Bella, Gigi, and Anwar) who were good looking enough to all become models. Fortunately, they take after their mother…

HOW TINY IS OFFSET?

Cardi B’s husband Offset made a big mistake posing for this photo with G-Eazy at his birthday bash because he looks SO short! Looks like they are both contemplating the dollar bill on the ground – who’s gonna pick it up? Offset claims to be 5’9 and G-Eazy is around 6’3”, in case you’re wondering. G-Eazy was a guest at Offset’s 30th birthday party at Sneakertopia (a pop-up Sneaker museum in LA) Cardi gave her hubby a 2 million dollar check for his birthday – does she assume he will spend it on HER?

IMAGINE HAVING KIM BASINGER AS YOUR MOTHER

Omigosh- this is going to make you feel really old, but Kim Basinger just turned 68 years old! Her daughter Ireland, 26, took mom out for a birthday dinner and snapped a short video while Kim protested. Despite being one of Hollywood’s great beauties, Kim has always described herself as shy and anxious and she hates to be the center of attention. It’s nice to hear that she’s been happily living with her boyfriend, studio hairdresser Mitch Stone, for the past few years. And her hair always looks good…

SNOOP DOGG: THE CAR HE WOULD HAVE KILLED FOR, BACK WHEN HE WAS A CRIP!

Snoop Dogg celebrated his 50th birthday in extravagant style last night in Los Angeles. Most of the guys dressed like pimps from the 70’s and Snoop seemed especially thrilled by a gift from family members. During the festivities, a gorgeous (and enormous!) 1959 Chevy Impala convertible from his family was delivered to the party and the crowd gasped. The shiny bronze car was fully restored with every piece of chrome in place, and valued at around $200,000. (It’s the lowrider car he would have killed for, back when he was a Crip!) Snoop has come a long way since “Doggystyle”…

CARDI B HAS A LIVE-IN “BODYGUARD”

Sometimes we think Cardi B is scary looking, but it turns out her husband Offset is even SCARIER looking! Cardi just had a riotous 29th birthday party at LA River Studios with a “dancehall” theme so most of the women wore fishnets of some kind. Offset just wore black with this serious jewelry, but the look on his face says it ALL. He’s in bodyguard mode- just LOOKING for trouble. Luckily he didn’t find any – that night. But it’s apparent that he has a familiarity with guns and drugs and for that reason, has spent time in prison. Cardi has two children with him, so obviously SHE’s not intimidated by his menacing look…

ARNOLD IS LIVING HAPPILY EVER AFTER DESPITE FAMILY DRAMA

Arnold Schwarzenegger knows how lucky he is. It seemed like the end of the world when Maria discovered he had a child with their housekeeper and filed for divorce back in 2011. But they parted in a very civilized manner (they never bothered to finalize the divorce) and Maria remained friendly to keep the family together. The kids like it this way and they all convened to celebrate dad’s 73rd birthday. Patrick posted this photo on Instagram.

GIGI HADID: MODELS DO GET TIRED OF DRESSING UP!

Gigi Hadid decided she wanted her friends to really relax and enjoy her 24th birthday party and not feel obliged to dress up in suits, ties, and high heels. She declared it a denim party so everyone could wear their most comfortable jeans, and she held her party at a hip new NY restaurant, L’Avenue, situated on the top two floors of Saks Fifth Avenue. Like it or not, California casual is infiltrating all of New York.
