Thursday nights Fall re-opening was amazing! I had a hot little crew with me - Dovile Virsilaite, her best friend Kirsten and Russian model Guzel. Dovile and Kirsten joined me Upstairs after dinner and we got crazy. My associate “Slim” rolled in with Nima Yamini and took over a swath of the room with eight or nine models. I honestly couldn’t tell you who else was there. But a thank you to all that came to help celebrate - including Damon Dash, who holds meetings outside of Cipriani on an almost daily bases, hyped about his new #1 single.
I am a little off today. Mondays are always a bit sluggish. Sunday Nights are karaoke at Cipriani Downtown in the member’s club. Russell Simmons, who has a great sense of humor, and I chatted up two sisters from North Carolina - and the guy would not relent on the jokes. Russell came with his long time friend David Rosenberg. We are both shaved bald. David and I were sitting back to back - Russell pushes our heads together and asks, “What does this look like?” He answers, “Black and white ass cheeks."
Hysterical? No. But it's good to laugh at yourself sometimes. That and the fact that I’m younger and better looking than Russell ever was in his prime helps.
