The Party Crasher - Seinfeld, Vince Neil and more
As the last days of summer wind down, celebs begin to detox as the tan lines fade. Some go into hibernation, others will go back to work, but either way, they can’t resist the novelties Miami has to offer. This past weekend, a few of your I Love The ’90s favorites appeared on the Beach for movie screenings, Asian eats and model behavior.
It’s been almost a decade since Jerry Seinfeld has been out of commission, but living off simulcast has its perks. The jokester got a few laughs this week at the VIP sneak preview of his new animated flick, Bee Movie (due out November 2) Monday morning. Arriving in a Volkswagen bee-themed Beetle, Seinfeld came strutting down a black carpet laced with yellow decorations, along with director Steve Hickner. They greeted VIPs and fans at the South Beach Regal Theater on Lincoln Road, and were met with warm feedback. After the footage rolled, Seinfeld headed over to Del Boca Vista to visit his parents delivering a marble rye all the way from Epicure (just kidding), the comic headed to the Shore Club where he conducted interviews for the remainder of the day. Fans gave the film two thumbs up, naming Bee Movie “the best animated movie of the year” and said “Seinfeld is a blast in person … and also good looking.” I’m guessing Seinfeld’s admirers consist mainly of Long Island migrants circa 1964.
Just because you’re a has-been doesn’t mean you can’t visit Miami hot spots while in town. Such was the case for the former lead singer of Mötley Crue this past weekend. Out of hiding with an appetite for gluttony, Vince Neil headed to the O Asian Grill Saturday evening to pig out. Exploring an authentic Asian palate, Neil dined on dishes featuring Octopus, Eel and Beef Toban. Dr. Feelgood’s feast lasted from 10 p.m. to midnight with no set after-hours agenda. The old-time bad boy of rock seems to be getting soft with middle age, no longer surrounded by sex, drugs and girls ... girls ... girls ...
Speaking of girls, America’s first “proclaimed” runway model, Janice Dickinson has been shacking on the Beach for Ocean Drive Fashion Week. Gracing the Hotel Victor with her presence, the fashion floozy has been shooting scenes for the upcoming flop – I mean season – of Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency. Can we say rip off? 8th & Ocean is dunzo, but what can you expect from a former member of The Surreal Life cast? The catwalk queen stopped by Casa Casuarina to pay respects to late fashion great Gianni Versace, the one honorable stop on her visit to the Sunshine State. Janice darling, I think Miami has reached our quota on busty Botox babes, come see us again after a few rounds of acupuncture and yoga. Until then, lay off the crazy pills. -- Tracy Block
