It was a busy weekend for celebs in the Hamptons.
David Saltzman and his fashion editor wife Elizabeth held a bash for Gucci at their estate in East Hampton, bringing out A-listers like Drew Barrymore, industry vet Bethann Hardison, Lindsey Vonn, playwright Jeremy O. Harris, photographer Tyler Mitchell, and Rachel Zoe.
Guests were treated to a performance by Mark Ronson, who was there with his new fianceée Grace Gummer. Also spotted: New “Gossip Girl,” cast members Emily Alyn Lind and Savannah Smith. (XOXO.)
In Montauk, a peculiar trio of Jon Bon Jovi, Pitbull and Barstool Sports head Dave Portnoy were spotted hanging out together at the Surf Lodge. Another unlikely pair: Earlier in the week, Wyclef Jean jumped on stage at the hotspot as a surprise during a performance by artist Fish Out of Whiskey. (The “Gone Till November” singer will be at Calissa in Water Mill on July 16 as part of the restaurant’s music series, for those who missed it).
Over in Southampton, chart-topping rapper 24KGoldn performed three songs, including his hit “Mood,” at a pool party for a set of twentysomethings at an event for beverage Poppi. “It felt like the coolest college bash ever,” says a spy.
Meanwhile, Ramona Singer, Chef David Burke, Jean Shafiroff, and Jane Scher were spotted at the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation’s “Hamptons Happening” benefit on the expansive grounds of Ken and Maria Fishel’s estate on Saturday night.
Guests dined on food from local restaurants and were treated to an improv rap performance by members from Broadway’s “Freestyle Love Supreme” who managed to seamlessly work in the name of the benefit into their rhymes several times. The event raised $400,000.
Fitness guru Tracy Anderson celebrated her cover of Grazia Gazette: The Hamptons Edition at Si Si at EHP Resort with Olivia Palermo, Johannes Huebl, and fashionisto Edward Barsamian.
“Exercise is the number one thing you can do for your health,” Anderson told us. “I think it’s a shame that people have not seen all the threats to their health that were already known from heart to disease to diabetes to cancer prevention to autoimmune [disorders] … But you come out with some sci-fi movie virus and people are like ‘Oh my God, my health’ … this virus is one of many ways you can be taken down before your time.”
Also in Southampton, spies were surprised to see Turkish ambassador Murat Mercan having lunch with local Rabbi Marc Schneier at 75 Main.
“They pulled up in an official government car and were talking about Jewish-Muslim relations,” says a spy. “The rabbi was telling him about how many Jews there are in America and also made some very typical rabbi jokes. It seemed like a very positive, friendly conversation and there was a lot of laughter.”
“Real Housewives” veterans Kelly Bensimon and Braunwyn Windham-Burke were spotted at a shopping event at the Johnny Was store, while some in the fashionable set attended a lawn party for Christian Louboutin that included a picnic.
