Despite the lavish cocktail parties, and elite social statuses, tempers do rise in the Hamptons.
Countess LuAnn de Lesseps found that out the hard way at a recent birthday party for real estate broker Debbie Loeffler at the Serafina restaurant, when fellow attendee and East Coast socialite Bettina Zilkha “threw a fit, waving her arms” at her following a perceived slight involving the Real Housewives of New York City royal.
“The party was very crowded and there were not enough seats,” an eyewitness told the NY Post. “Bettina had a plate of food and wanted to sit, but LuAnn said the chair was taken and her date had just gone to the bar.
“I had been sitting in that seat and I got up to get some more food, then I came back and she said, ‘You can’t sit there,’” she said. “It was a little strange, but it wasn’t a big deal.”
