Summer Beauty Tips, Hamptons Gossip, and The Real Housewives of New York City, of course from Brad Boles
Part 2: Lunch with Jill Zarin’s ôGay Husbandö serves up some tasty dish… meow!
Beauty tips and gossip, served up, well not straight, but definitely on the rocks from the fast-talking, globe-trekking, glamourella guy himself. Hold tight kiddies, because in the weeks to come, Brad and I will be chatting away with you! ľ S.H.
There is something about warm weather and beaches that brings out the sexy in all of us.
There’s no better ôHousewifeö then the Countess Luann de Lesseps who gave a great radio interview with my very sexy friend Judith Regan of SirusXM. The Countess remained a lady through all the hard hitting questions about Kelly Killoren Bensimon apparent breakdown on ĹPoison Island,’ at least she was smart enough not to end up in that hot mess of a house!
Even sexier is my metrosexual friend and Hamptons cohort, the travel guy, Rob Siegel. Oh you know the The Hamptons, it’s the super chic and expensive beachy part on the east end of Long Island, New York.
Rob and I stopped by Ramona Singer and Mario‘s fabulous house there last weekend.
Ramona showed us her line of baubles and the new season of her jewelry collection is so sexy– the underside is as beautiful as what the eye sees. Fantastic!
A well put-together metrosexual man!
Yes darlings, in my opinion, THE hottest gay man’s accessory is a well put-together metrosexual– when party hopping in the Hamptons, you guys rock! So if you see me out with a hot man, the chances are he’s on your team ladies. Just because he is straight does not mean that he shouldn’t be groomed within an inch of his life– expect nothing less!
Continuing on the dish front, the sex goddess herself, Kim Cattrall, couldn’t get together in the Hamptons this week. Kim sent me a text that she is shooting in Barcelona and didn’t know when she would get back due to the heavy rains that were threatening to shut down production. Now, that woman has a HOT bikini body.
It looks like Season 4 of ôThe Real Housewives of New York Cityö is heading for even more drama even before they start filming! In next week’s Lunch With Brad column you will get my one-on-one amazing interview with my favorite ôwife,ö Jill Zarin and all her ôSecrets of a Jewish Mother,ö and much more… trust me!
Now, I’m going to give you a few beauty tips because everyone wants to look as hot as my ladies do!
