Pamela Anderson wasn’t frolicking on the sand a la her old “Baywatch” days, but following the premiere of the celluloid version of the show that launched a thousand nips, the 49-year-old let loose at WALL in a gold sequined dress as she and friends celebrated the role that made her famous with a table of flowing champagne all night long. Anderson, we’re told, showed up around 1:30 p.m. and sat next to “one of the model promoters.” She also had “a LOT of champagne.”
The alleged girlfriend of Wikipedia troll Julian Assange wasn’t the Baywatch babe and about this weekend.
OG David Hasselhoff took his new mustache and 37-year-old British fiancée Hayley Roberts out for a bike ride on the Miami Beach boardwalk while back in LA, the other Hayley in his life–his 24-year-old daughter, was arrested for DUI. The Hoff, it seems, is always hassled about something. “Baywatch” the movie actress Kelly Rohrbach joined in on the festivities Friday at LIV with producer Beau Flynn and several production members. The crew bought four large bottles of Grey Goose and Patrón. Rohrbach was seen letting loose, dancing on top of the booth with a group of girlfriends.
Rohrbach’s table was surrounded by Wu Tang legend Raekwon and rapper Noreaga, both who both performed alongside French Montana, who was seen later over the weekend getting cozy with Amber Rose. Rapper Red Cafe and artist Alec Monopoly were also on stage for the party.
Poor Jeb Bush. Not only did he fail to beat his bully to the White House, but now his name is seemingly preventing an aspiring Miami-based US Attorney for the Southern District of Florida from reaching that brass (or is it orange?) ring. Former assistant US attorney at the DOJ John Couriel, who lost his bid for a seat in the Florida legislature, was a die hard Jeb! fan. So what, right? Well, Couriel, now a partner in Miami law firm Kobre & Kim, whose boyish looks draw comparisons to another guy he’s seemingly a fan of–Marco Rubio, was never overtly against Donald Trump, but he was no fan either, telling the LA times in November, “Our Republican base hasn’t known quite what to do with Donald Trump.” Couriel, a Harvard law grad, wouldn’t say whether he was voting for Trump in a June Tampa Bay Times article, which also noted that he “avoids talk of Trump.” So what then? It’s not like the guy bashed the now-prez, but, says our Swamp rat (no, not Kellyanne), just by being Jeb’s biggest fan made him blow his bid for US attorney, well, bigly. It’s hard to believe that had anything to do with him getting passed over for the gig. You would think the fact that when he was a federal prosecutor in 2009, Couriel prosecuted several public corruption conspiracies, including a ring of fraudsters at the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles who were generating valid Florida driver’s licenses for illegal aliens, would have been an asset in this administration. But here’s the rub: in his current gig as partner at Kobre & Kim, he specializes in Latin America with—wait for it– a focus on allegations of foreign corruption violations, money laundering and tax evasion. A ha! See: #TrumpRussia.
Couriel isn’t the only one allegedly out of the running. Miami Dade County Commissioner Jose Felix Diaz, an attorney at Akerman, Chairman of the Regulatory Affairs Committee of the Florida House, and, probably his most impressive qualification to this president, a season 5 “Apprentice” contestant who sources say has been telling people he was a shoe in for the job, “bombed on his interview with the DOJ” and is out. Now they’re back to square one and two, with two new Miami names thrown into the ring for the job.
“This is a new era, this is the Trump era,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions told border patrol agents on Tuesday.
Remember the days when bands couldn’t perform in the United States because of Fidel Castro? Well now bands can’t play in America because of the tangerine tyrant, our so-called president, Donald Trump. That’s right, Buenos Aires-based band Rascasuelos was slated to perform in Miami March 22, but had to cancel due to “visa issues.” We contacted the band and asked outright, “Was it because of Trump’s travel ban,” to which a member replied, “You got it.”
The band, composed of seven classically and rock trained musicians, was also slated for a gig at SXSW. Not anymore. “Here in the band, there are many people who have been playing for years in the U.S.,” said Jeremy Hutton, the manager for the band. “This is the first time that we have to canceled a trip due to the migration situation that could jeopardize our career.”
After some thought, he clarified, saying “Rascasuelos were not victims of the ‘Trump Travel Ban’, rather victims of an environment that is not conducive to culture and the arts. It is, after all, a mission of the Right to eradicate creative endeavour since it takes the form of political activism, therefore contravenes their program. In this sense, there are certain parallels between what is occurring now in the US and in Argentina around the turn of the century. Although perhaps not so much economically as politically and culturally. Yet emerging from the crisis in Argentina post 2001 was an explosion of creativity within the Arts . . .it was due to the changing environment for the arts and international travel, accompanied by stricter enforcement of rules at US ports of entry.”
Potatoes, potahtoes. We didn’t have this with Obama.
The band is applying for work visas in the coming months, but still. Cutting arts funding and preventing renowned bands from playing in the United States is doing anything but making America great again. What a travesty.
“Moonlight’s” mini-iest stars and Miami’s own, Jaden Piner and Alex Hibbert, were at Wednesday’s Miami Heat win against the Philadelphia 76ers along with the movie’s music director Tanisha Cidel. The trio was honored during the game and they got to meet the Heat’s own Liberty City legend, Udonis Haslem, who signed a pair of his shoes for them.
What does the woman who wore a Gucci Pussy Bow shirt to her husband’s presidential debate wear during the inauguration? An outfit designed by a pussy designer who was afraid to say no to the wife of the future president because of a few things starting with I, R and S, perhaps? So says our snitch, who has confirmed this information to us exclusively. But before people go off on Ralph Lauren, give him props for putting his well heeled foot down and saying he’d only dress her for the actual inauguration. No fancy ball gowns, no evening wear, no frills, none of that. Not a recent decision, RL made up his mind to “only do a day outfit” sometime in late December. She called him. The decision was no prance on the polo field either. “He’s freaking out that it’s gonna blow up,” says the source, adding “He was scared shitless to say no.” This is definitely worse than his Olympic gaffe, that’s for sure, but yet, we’re not crying for the former Ralph Lifshitz. Not at all.
