Celebrities Battle It Out in the Hamptons

The Hamptons Model Celebrity Beach Games makes its debut this summer

Posted on

The Scene: The First Annual Hamptons Model Celebrity Beach Games, a cross between Battle of the Network Stars and a Summer Olympics for the Impossibly Beautiful, held in Montauk, N.Y.

The Dope: Few stars actually got athletic. ”The water is freezing here, isn’t it?” asked ex-Baywatch star Nicole Eggert.

The Events: The models faced off by agency in such events as swimming, kayaking, volleyball, and tug-of-war but seemed more concerned about their tans.

Best Distressed: MTV talk-show host Jon Stewart’s T-shirt said ”Eat Poo.” ”Somehow I don’t think it will impress a Brazilian model,” he admitted.

Video Stare: Oliver Stone gave the models the more-than-once-over through a camcorder. ”It’s a babefest,” he pronounced.

Send Her In, Coach: MTV VJ Kennedy declared herself game for one event — ”the hosing down of [Versace model] Marcus Schenkenberg with a tub of Lubriderm.”

Future Hype: ”Tokyo is bidding for the 1998 games,” said Stewart, ”but I don’t think they have the facilities. They have the cameras.”
