For those who had the chance this past weekend to attend Talent Resources' Third Annual Charity Polo Classic, they were in for a real treat. Held at a private estate in Watermill, NY, the event benefited Rally for Kids with Cancer, a foundation that raises funds toward finding a cure.
Mike Heller and the Talent Resources team were pleased to have American polo star Nic Roldan as the event’s host, as he flew in precisely for the benefit. The event’s famous host isn’t the only attendee to brag about: the crowd of over 250 guests included Hampton’s socialites and a slew of celebrities. Current and past cast-mates from The Real Housewives of New York including Ramona and Mario Singer, Kelly Bensimon, and LuAnn de Lesseps with boyfriend Jacques Azoulay were in attendance. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dina Manzo was also present. Also coming out to support the event was Bravo's Gold Coast Girls star Chanel Omari, celebrity style expert Lindsi Lane and plus sized model Andrea Horblitt.
It would be wrong of me to say that karma comes back to bite you in the end, but it also wouldn't be fair of me to leave the coincidental circumstances of the early Sunday morning shooting outside of Greenhouse out of my thoughts entirely. After being denied entry to the West SoHo club, Jason Green's little altercation with another patron ended his life. Remember just a few months back when Mr. Green ignored Eutisha Rennix as she lay dying on the floor of Au Bon Pain? And as not to digress into a long, obvious, karma-driven expose, I'll simply say that this was, in fact, not really all that surprising.
Joonbug would like to welcome premier event producer Chanel Omari to the team as host of its newly created video blogging series. Talk With Coco will feature some of New York's hottest celebrities and will give you everything you need to know about how to look and dress stylishly and with sophistication.

Your only job is to expect the unexpected and join us each week for Chanel's personal look inside the lives of these celebrities.
