Leonardo Ferragamo, son of the legendary late shoe designer Salvatore and CEO of the family’s holding company, was seen at Bal Harbour Shops over the weekend, checking out his namesake store and shopping at the Santa Maria Novella boutique.
Ludacris and his girlfriend were seen Thursday night, eating steak salad outside at Meat Market.
Before playing against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday, Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush was seen having dinner Friday at Katsuya with some friends and, says our spy, “his Kim Kardashian look-alike girlfriend,” the pregnant Lilit Avagyan. On Sunday night it was a close call as Bush and Avagyan had dinner at Prime Italian while Kardashian and beau Kanye West ate across the street once again at Prime 112. Also seen that night at 112: actor/model William Levy and a male pal. On Friday night, Kardashian and West were out at Bianca at the Delano with sister Khloe and shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti.
It’s not just Kourtney, Kim and Khloe taking over Miami. Kourtney’s baby daddy Scott Disick and Kardashian appendage, publicist Jonathan Cheban, have been making the rounds, dining last week at Tosca, a new South Beach restaurant where meals average about $500 a person. To no one’s surprise, the duo did not pay as it was a “friends and family” event. Disick was also seen with a large group after the Wednesday night grand opening of the Canali store at Bal Harbour.
Michael Jordan had dinner (Dover sole) Friday night at Villa Azur with a group of friends, staying until 2 a.m.
Blame it on the train-wreck effect, the Bravo bait-and-switch that duped viewers into watching a brutal, blistery sneak preview of The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion, but Thursday’s 9 p.m. showing of The Real Housewives of Miami had 870,000 viewers – abysmal still, yes, but up from the previous week’s even more abysmal 847,000. We weren’t even going to talk about the plummeting viewership anymore, but the addition of 23,000 viewers was worthy of a few words. Again, for perspective, the veep debate attracted approximately 51.4 million people who care about the future of this country or just wanted to see if VP Joe Biden or U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan would do anything offensive, while Project Runway, also on at 9, had 1.9 million people watching.
