Gawker Covers 'Hamptons Magazine' Party

I'm Hamptons Material

Kicking off its 16 week summer run for the rich and wish-they-were-rich, Hamptons Magazine held its annual "we're hipper and richer than you" party, at BLVD where guests mugged for photographer Nikola Tamindzic. Gawker reports guests were mostly wannabes, Eurotrash and publicists gushing about how they going to the Hamptons "with friends," "renting" or "sharing." Few owned up to, well, actually owning any property in the Hamptons.

Gawker, curious as to who reads Hampton Magazine, took a look at the magazine's demographics which revealed readers to be an average age of 33, have home worth $2.6 million, spend $25,000 annually on clothes and drive Aston Martins, Bentleys, Ferraris, Hummers, Jaguars and Maseratis. Clearly, guests were not readers.

judging by the looks of the folks i see picking up that awful rag, the demographics seem a bit wistful and misty eyed. can't say i believe that the demos are even remotely truthful. but, as the saying goes, money can't buy taste.

"This just in: Al-Qaeda blows up the Hamptons, lots of Beautiful People Dead, Nobody Gives A Damn."

Oh crap, it was just a dream.
