BESIDE BOWIE: THE MICK RONSON STORY



With exclusive voice-over contributions from David Bowie, this film is a celebration of the life and works of guitar virtuoso Mick Ronson, a rock hero virtually uncelebrated despite his direct contribution and involvement in countless compositions, lyrics and recordings that changed the face of music forever.



An Emperor Media Ltd production, documentary special Beside Bowie: The Mick Ronson Story (101:50 minutes) is from award-winning producer/director Jon Brewer. Mick Ronson's humble beginnings in Hull, England underpinned his values and modest, unpretentious personality as he worked with the city's council whilst pursuing his craft with consummate dedication.


Soon word of his talent reached David Bowie, who grabbed at the chance to work with Ronson, in what would become a career-long association, alongside collaborations with other greats such as Bob Dylan, Ian Hunter,…

BETHENNY FRANKEL HELPS HURRICANE HARVEY DRESS

Image
New York, NY -- Yesterday, Bethenny Frankel raised and donated a total of $50,000 to Dress for Success Corpus Christi and Dress for Success Houston to assist women in crisis in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. 100 percent of the proceeds will go directly to help women and their families in financial crisis and supply them with needed goods.


The funds, along with future funds raised daily by Bethenny and B Strong, will allow Dress for Success Corpus Christi to eventually repair its location and continue to serve women in their local community after being damaged by Hurricane Harvey.


As an extension of Bethenny’s B Strong initiative, the donations made to Dress for Success Houston will help 900 Professional Women’s Group members overcome the financial crises they will face in the wake of this historic storm.


Both affiliates are exploring other means for helping the thousands of women who will be struggling to rebuild their lives, and Bethenny’s contribution will provide these organ…

Author Laurie Gelman celebrated the launch of her debut book, Class Mom: A Novel, on Thursday, August 24, 2017 with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at the home of Deana and Steve Hanson in East Hampton, NY. Class Mom: A Novel is a clever take on a year in the life of kindergarten class mom, Jen Dixon. Jen is not your typical Kansas City, Missouri kindergarten class mom¯or a mom in general. Jen already has two college-age daughters by two different men (probably musicians), and it is her second time around the class mom block with five-year-old Max¯this time with a husband and father by her side. Though her best friend and PTA President sees her as the “wisest” candidate for the job (or oldest), not all of the other parents agree.



From recording parents’ response times to her emails about helping in the classroom, to requesting contributions of “special” brownies for curriculum night, not all …

JEAN SHAFIROFF STUNNING ON SOCIAL LIFE COVER

**** HAMPTON'S BEST COVERS ****



Social Life -- Jean Shafiroff ’s world may seem filled with glamorous charity balls, but the reality of her day-to-day life is filled with hard work. The author and humanitarian brings a strong consideration for people and animals to all that she does for charities in the Hamptons and beyond. Shafiroff, who was most recently honored by the Southampton Animal Shelter, wholeheartedly dedicates herself to elevating several causes. She does this by chairing or otherwise organizing memorable fundraisers with humility and grace. She also gives generously of her own time and resources. Her goal? To inspire potential donors’ enthusiasm for the organizations whose causes she believes in. “Local organizations especially rely on summer fundraisers to survive,” says Shafiroff. “Without the capability to fundraise, a lot of these groups would have a very difficult time.”

The East Hampton Library’s Authors Night is one of the most anticipated events of the summer.

ROCKER TOMMY LEE JOINS THE MILE HIGH CLUB

Tommy Lee In Mile High Club



TMZ -- Tommy Lee won't be busted for possibly busting with his girlfriend in an American Airlines bathroom, because what the 2 did inside is nobody's business but theirs ... TMZ has learned.


Our American Airlines sources tell us ... there were no complaints filed with the company about Tommy and his gf Brittany Furlan joining the mile high club. We're told it's NOT against policy for 2 people to use the same lavatory at the same time ... and what they do in there is private.


Our sources say typically, when 2 people use the same bathroom, it's the elderly or someone who needs medical assistance ... but Tommy and Brittany both appeared to be in good health.


The rocker and his gf didn't create a disturbance on the short flight from Nassau to Miami, so we're told Tommy's off the hook -- he won't face a ban.


We reached out to a rep for American Airlines ... the company officially has no comment on this matter.

BRIDGEHAMPTON NY – The Hampton’s-based Ellen Hermanson Foundation held it’s annual gala which netted more than $100,000 for the South Hampton Hospital’s new cancer center and its breast center bearing the foundation’s name. Held at Jean-Georges’ Topping Rose House here, the gala was chaired by Jean Shafiroff.







The Amazing Kreskin was able to recall the 22 cards pulled from from a shuffled 52-card deck after a quick glace of the remaining cards. The guests left amazed by Kreskin’s mentalist feasts, satisfied with a sumptuous meal and fulfilled as auctioneer Nicolas Dawes, an expert on PBS’ Antiques Road Show, auctioned himself off … twice, and coaxed five figure gifts for each of six special chemotherapy chairs for the cancer center.


The East Hampton Chamber of Commerce was a presenting partner with the foundation.
