It's already the 4th of July weekend in the Hamptons! Wow time is flying fast this summer. Oh to be an offspring of the "Rich and Famous," in the Hamptons.

For Example there is Georgina Bloomberg (31), the youngest daughter of Michael Bloomberg and Susan Brown. Her love for horses and the Hamptons was most likely responsible for her dad buying (for around $20-plus million) "Ballyshear," an estate designed by F. Burrill Hoffman Jr. in 1913 for National Golf Links of America founder Charles Blair Macdonald. For over a decade the former mayor declined to be a Hamptons presence, but he is now as his presence last year at the Hamptons Classic proved. Michael Bloomberg also now has a wonderful grandson, Jasper Michael Brown Quintana, to take to the Hamptons Classic this year to watch Georgina ride.

Also riding around and enjoying the Hamptons equestrian scene is Jessica Springsteen (22). She too had a proud daddy, Bruce Springsteen, watching her ride at the Hamptons Classic for years. It was always great to see the "Boss," as a proud "Dad."

Having just enrolled as a freshman at the University if Michigan, Lourdes Leon, otherwise known as Madonna's daughter, does have access to mommy's horse farm on Scuttlehole Road in Bridgehampton. She seems to fly under the radar when she visits the Hamptons. Maybe she too will be a presence at the Hamptons Classic.

This has been a breakout year for the children of Christie Brinkley. Daughter Alexa Ray Joel, daddy is Billy Joel, is knocking on the door of superstardom and now. Alexa Ray's half sister Sailor Brinkley Cook is on her way into mom's business, modeling. And her youngest, Jack Brinkley Cook is also becoming a celebrity around town.

So what is the Kardashian Question of the Week: Will Khloe, Kourtney, Kim, or even all three (plus mom Kris Jenner) make an appearance at the Hamptons Classic riding horses? I suppose a new saddle will have to be invented to join the Western Saddle and the English Saddle. It will be called the "Kardashian Saddle," made of Gucci leather with an extra wide stabilizer, and it will come with three whips. If they mount up on show horses I would love to see that photo perhaps from the posterior angle.
