As Calvin Klein is learning, people in glass houses shouldn’t throw…elaborate parties?
According to Page Six, the designer is having a hard time keeping people off his glass-house property in the Hamptons as he finishes a renovation and preps for what neighbors are hoping is a major fête.
Even Klein’s “billionaire” neighbors in the uber-wealthy Meadow Lane neighborhood of Southampton can’t resist sneaking a peek at the designer’s digs. People in the ‘hood are apparently ignoring posted signs and biking up the driveway to figure out what’s happening at Chez Klein–and it sounds like there’s a lot to check out.
The designer is rushing to finish up work on his Hamptons mansion, spending a reported 10 hours a day installing “personally designed furniture.” A source told Page Six that there were 27 cars and trucks on the site with workers and that “Calvin kept emerging from a black Porsche to crack the whip.”
Klein threw a “legendary” housewarming party at this location in 2004, complete with $500,000 worth of caviar and champagne–but if those neighbors are hoping for an invite this time around, they should maybe consider not trespassing.
Probably not invited to this party? Klein’s ex, Nick Gruber, who caused a kerfuffle at a party in Fire Island this weekend, as Gawker’s Michael Musto reports. The underwear model was booted from a VIP tent at the Ascension party–which, for those not in the know, is the biggest party of the summer for gay males–after pushing away gay men who tried to touch him.
“Keep your hands away from me! I’m straight!” he told partygoers, adding that he had only recently “come out as straight.” Right. This, from the guy who once referred to The Boss as “Bruce Bearstring.”
