Celebrity Buzz in the Hamptons By GINA GLICKMAN - GIORDAN

This past Saturday, millions of movie-goers across the country including thousands of Hamptonites didn’t let one gunman stop them from going to see The Dark Knight Rises opening weekend. The sequel grossed more than $161.1 million dollars. Yet, the tragic Aurora, Colorado Movie Theater Massacre that took the lives of 12 people and injured 50 others was the main topic of conversation for several VIPs who attended opening day of the 16th Annual Bridgehampton Polo Club. Bravo’s “Real Housewife of NYC star,” LuAnn de Lesseps who is a mother of two said, “I think it’s terrible and I feel so bad for the families. I have children and everybody has children that they are connected to those people that were there.” Lesseps felt the tragedy would affect the premiere of the Dark Knight saga, “I think people are going to think twice about going to see it just because of what happened. It’s something so monumental that it’s understandable.” Former RHONYC star and book author Kelly Killoren Bensimon, who is about to go on a national tour to promote her latest book, I Can Make You Hot shared, “It’s just unbelievable. I can’t believe that these kind of tragedies are happening. “ Designer Donna Karan’s daughter, Gabby Karan co-owner of Tutto Il Giorno in Southampton, whose husband (an airline pilot) Gianpaolo De Felice’s company Zen Air, was a major sponsor at Polo this season said, “It breaks my heart. I think that we just have to change in our society and try to give back a little bit more.” Supermodel LuAnn de Lesseps Veronica Webb, who is a mother of four children said, “My heart definitely goes out to them and to anybody that had to deal with that horror.” Webb’s husband Chris Del Gatto is a professional Polo player forced to sit out the next few weeks due to a severed tendon in his thumb (Chris almost sliced his thumb off cooking) revealed, “The first thing we think about is our children and that you could be some place as innocuous as a movie theater taking them out for a family evening and something like that happens.” You can witness Del Gatto, Nacho and all your favorite Polo players competing in matches at the BHPC for the next five consecutive Saturday afternoons. This Saturday, July 28 is a biggie when it comes to the annual charity events this season. The 15th annual Super Saturday is scheduled rain or shine! The ultimate kids event and designer garage sale SS15 is hosted by Donna Karan, Kelly Ripa and Paula Patton. Designers open up their booths promptly at 12 p.m. for VIP ticket holders. All the proceeds benefit the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF). Saturday evening Russell Simmon’s East Hampton estate will hold hundreds of celebrity guests at the 13th Annual Art for Life to benefit the Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation. This year Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon are being honored. Plus, guests will enjoy special performances by Anita Baker, Salt-NPepa and Diggy Simmons.
