The Most Ridiculous Item of the Week – 9.7.07

As the Ad Hoc Award-Demanding Waste of Skin has moved his annual White Party from his home in the Caribbean island of St. Tropez to his mansion in Long Island this year, it appears as if he’s continuing with his long streak of arrogant shenanigans, this time targeting Billy Joel’s 26-year-old wife (and former host of Top Chef and other similar segments), Katie Lee Joel.

While the term “White Party” is more widely known as a series of circuit events held on a somewhat regular basis to benefit HIV/AIDS charities, Diddy, being the prolific man that he is (interesting to note that damn near every single one of his hits has blatantly aped another song), decided to ape the name and general idea (in which attendees wear all white), and repackage it as a ridiculous, self-aggrandizing, celebrity-and-excess-studded event.

While the original White Party no doubt has its share of pretentiousness, Diddy’s White Party has brought it to a whole new level, as guests Billy and Katie Lee Joel were turned away because doormen (acting on Diddy’s strict decree) noted that Katie’s dress was a cream shade of white, and not pure white. Despite Billy Joel trying to woo the doormen with an a cappella rendition of “We Didn’t Start the Fire”, they were having none of it, instead telling Katie Lee to go homne and change into something whiter. Does anyone else notice any irony in a white person being turned away from a party hosted by a black person for not being white enough? Where’s Mathan? Surely his white half must be at least a little irritated by this.
