PONY BOY Nacho Figueras (Photo: PatrickMcMullan) Much was made last week of news that author A.M. Homes has a Hamptons-based project in the works for HBO. It's not surprising then that the VIP tent at Saturday's Mercedes Benz Bridgehampton Polo at JetOne Jets field was buzzing with excitement over just how the fabled playground of the well-heeled will play on screen.
Homes said the show will be a cross between Desperate Housewives and Grapes of Wrath, but some celebs are hoping it brings the lust: Beth Ostrosky, Howard Stern's ladylove, thinks "they should have a lot of twisted love affairs—and a lot of young girls."
Others simply hoped for inclusion. Polo player Nacho Figueras, who is to the game what Mick Jagger is to rock music, said he hopes they work the sport of kings, and, presumably, himself into the series. "I think they should show how this is the place where the best polo players and best horses in the world gather for six weeks every year," said the handsome face of Ralph Lauren Black cologne.
