What do you give the guy who has everything for his 80th birthday?
A puppy. And a hard-to-get Bentley convertible.
This is what awaited a surprise Bob Kraft when he woke up on his birthday last week.
More Palm Beach Company News here.
The puppy, a gift from the Hollywood bigshot Ari EmmanuelHe is a shih-poo, a hybrid of a shih tzu and a toy poodle with a life expectancy of 10-15 years.
Quite appropriate gift for an 80 year old, right?
The Bentley Convertible – extremely rare and impossible to acquire even at its high MSRP – was a surprise gift from Meek Mill, Jay-Z and 76ers partner Michel rubin, who joked that Kraft wouldn’t buy the car for himself because he dropped a fortune on his Southampton home.
Meek Mill posted an Instagram photo of the surprised Kraft.
Of course, a nice doormat for this new home would have been another gift possibility.
But the car is better. A lot.
Totally Frank: The best reason to hang out in town during the last days of the season is because it’s always someone’s birthday, which means a party.
Frank Orenstein is one of those spring babies. And to celebrate, his main pressure Gail is worth it gathered a few dozen of his relatives for a birthday dinner at Club Colette.
There were cocktails, lots of talk about vaccines (a few people even pulled out their vax cards and waved it like it was a royal warrant), dinner with the club’s signature rack of lamb, Wayne hosford on the piano and a birthday cake with lots of candles.
We can’t tell you how old Frank is because he’s Canadian, so the candles were metric. Never been able to figure this out.
There: Frank’s producer son AndrÃ© – He produced Malcolm in the middle and Third rock of the sun – who traveled all the way from Los Angeles; Frank’s longtime friend Jerry Snyder and his wife Sallie, who arrived from Las Vegas;and Peggy and Bill Johnson, Lois Pope, Bill Porter, Suebelle Robbins, Maude Cook, Suzi and Rick Goldsmith, Tova Leidesdorf, Arlette Gordon, Stan Collemer and Rick Hurtado, Paul and Paulette Cooper Noble, Chris Yanuzzi and Cathy Easton, State prosecutor Dave Aronberg, Sunny sessa and Max von Anhalt, BJaye and Frank Pilotte, HÃ©lÃ¨ne Karp, Florence Bonsuk and Bill McBride, Donna and Dr Dave Dodson, Janet and Marc Levy, David and Holly Dreman, and a few other survivors of the great pandemic bingo war in 2021.
