WO of New York's most gracious philanthropists threw a fantastic housewarming party. Guess who came to dinner?  The divine diva Mariah Carey.

Sheila and Danny Rosenblum, the leading lights of many charities, have drop-dead floor to ceiling windows revealing some of the most magical views of the most beautiful city in the world.  They had given a very generous donation to the Fresh Air Fund, which is one of Mariah’s favorite charities, especially as one of the beneficiaries is Camp Mariah.

The beautiful young singer wowed the crowd, which included Dr. Ruth Westheimer, Neil and Leba Sedaka, Trish and Arthur Backal, Dennis Basso and Michael Cominotti, Dr. Larry and Sandy Rosenthal. Everyone was delighted to meet this singing legend, full of warmth and charm.

Mariah had wanted to be on hand to thank Danny and Sheila for their dedication and caring of so many children.  She also captivated the two Rosenblum children, Kara and Eric.

If Not New York,
Then The Hamptons

HOSE New Yorkers not in Monte Carlo, Rome, Paris or Madrid, spent summer in the the Hamptons, where a great time is had by all!  Because there are so many parties, I’m going to tell you about a couple.

There’s the Bay Street Theatre benefit. Everyone who loves the theatre is out at this party.  The theatre run by Emma Watson (daughter of legend Dame Julie Andrews) and Sybil Christopher (the first Mrs. Burton), has a worldwide reputation in the arts arena.

On hand were producers Stewart Lane and Marty Richards (this year’s Academy Award Oscar winner for Chicago), Phil and Trish Smith of the Shubert Theatre, and Alec Baldwin and Nicole Seidel.  Chicago’s director Rob Marshall was on hand taking kudos for this magical movie.

Super Saturday is one of the greatest flea markets in the world, where one day every major fashion designer and accessories maker donate all their clothing to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation.  It’s in a Hamptons field, and everyone who loves a bargain comes out.

This year’s Miss USA, Susie Castillo, was on hand for the celebrations and former supermodel and still glorious Christie Brinkley joined the fun.

If it’s The Hamptons it must be the Mercedes Benz Polo Matches (though no one would know because no one watches!). The action is under the tents, and there Kim Cattrall of Sex and The City fame, and the Piano Man himself, Billy Joel, relaxed for the occasion.

I want to share with you a very special photo—the action hero himself, Bruce Willis, who was gracious and charming and loved being surrounded by the foster children from Edwin Gould Family Services, and VIP kids who made up the audience. Bruce and The Rugrats were a delightful combination.
