A CLUB? MOI?
As successful private clubs like Carriage House in Palm Beach and Casa Tua in Aspen and Miami have become the rage across the country, you can’t blame people for thinking that real estate mogul and legendary party boy Aby Rosen (whose wife, Dr. Samantha Boardman, is the daughter of PB favorites Dixon Boardman and Pauline Pitt) purchased the old Southampton Cinema to open his own East End version. Rosen, however, shot down the rumor and told PALMER insiders will announce his actual plans for the space in coming weeks.
FAREWELL TO A FRIEND
A memorial service for Felicia Taylor, the former NBC anchor and documentarian who died earlier this month, is being planned for family and friends later this season in Palm Beach. The wife of Peter Gottsegen, and daughter of Australian mid-century heartthrob actor Rod Taylor, she was a social fixture on the island almost her entire life, following in the footsteps of both her fashion model mother Mary Hilem (later married to Arthur Rubloff and Lewis Schott), and close family friend Terry Allen Kramer. Her godfathers were actor John Wayne and director John Ford.
SUCH THING AS A FREE RIDE
Christie Brinkley’s son, Jack Brinkley Cook, has teamed with Gianpaolo de Felice, co-owner of soon to be opened Tutto Giorno at the Royal Poinciana Playhouse, to bring their free Tesla-based ride share company, Rove, to Palm Beach this season. The new program, which is advertiser-supported and free to users, was just approved by the town following a successful trial in the Hamptons this summer. Brinkley’s ex husband, piano man Billy Joel, has been a long time PB resident, so let’s see if he hops on board.
