Bill Clinton 64th Bday Bash Tonight in Hamptons


Bill Clinton‘s having a big birthday party tonight in the Hamptons.

Did you know this? I didn’t. The Clintons have been renting a house in the Sag Harbor area for most of this summer. The party, in Water Mill, is being hosted by Doug and Lily Band.

Of course, they already had one big party –Chelsea’s wedding–just weeks ago. It seems like such a long time has passed!

Just two weeks ago, former president Bill was seen at the 7-11 in Sag Harbor buying razor blades. The Clintons were attending a local wedding of the daughter of big time supporters Richard and Lisa Perry.

A British paper reported that Paul McCartney serenaded Clinton over the phone on August 19th–his actual birthday–with “When I’m 64.”

McCartney, who has a house in nearby Amagansett, could very well be a guest on tonight’s list. Other names I’ve heard bandied about include Billy Joel, his ex Christie Brinkley, Martha Stewart, Vera Wang, the Steven Spielbergs, and Alan and Susan Patricof.

Meantime, hundreds of other guests are expected at Peggy Siegal’s screening of Oliver Stone’s “Wall Street 2.” Neither Stone nor star Michael Douglas can be there, but expect the very rich to attend. It’s mostly Republicans, so it shouldn’t overlap with the Clinton party.
