Oh, yeezus. Now Kanye West is hopping onto the Art Basel bandwagon, participating in a discussion with architecture giant Jacques Herzog Wednesday night at the Moore Building in the Design District.

The discussion is part of Surface magazine’s Design Dialogues No. 6. The talk will be moderated by Hans-Ulrich Obrist, co-director of Exhibitions and Programmes and Director of International Projects at Serpentine Gallery, whose chairman elect is former NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg. We hope they ask West about which cheese inspired his latest video most. Velveeta?

Some of West’s more athletic fans partied during his show Friday in Hyde at the AmericanAirlines Arena. Among them: Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson and Miami Dolphins Brian Hartline, Rishard Matthew s, Lamar Miller, Chris Clemons and Brandon Gibson. West’s fiancee Kim Kardashian dined with her man before the show at Makoto in Bal Harbour.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ brassy Brit and Dancing with the Stars contestant Lisa Vanderpump, in town for the 29th Anniversary of the White Party, was seen shopping Friday with her daughter Pandora at Saks Fifth Avenue in Bal Harbour. Vanderpump, also in town “hocking her sangria,” says our spy, was seen schmoozing with White Party grand hostess Elaine Lancaster.

Calvin Klein and a group of friends sipped on three Magnums of Perrier Jouët Bell Epoque rose Saturday night at Bâoli. Klein kept ordering rounds of tiger prawn with white truffle risotto.

Adam Sandler and his family spent the Thanksgiving holiday at the Boca Raton Resort & Club, where his kids were seen ice skating on the resort’s rink. Spotted Friday night up the block at Jazziz Nightlife was Bethenny Frankel, with friends including Marc Leder, co-chief executive officer of Boca-based Sun Capital Partners, Inc., host of the notorious “47 percent” Mitt Romney fundraiser and alleged ex of Kimora Lee Simmons.

Juanes and his wife Karen Martinez were seen having dinner Friday at Zuma.

Tom Arnold was seen having dinner with family Saturday night in Prime 112’s private wine room. Earlier, they lunched at Hyde Beach in a pool cabana.

    Attack of Sharknado 2: Oh yeah, there’s another one

    The idea of making a movie about a tornado that scoops up thousands of sharks and sends them flying through the air to chomp their way through a bevy of people, places and things sounds totally ridiculous. That didn’t stop Syfy from moving ahead with Sharknado, a movie that became a pop culture phenomenon last year. The mania reached such a fevered level that a sequel, Sharknado 2: The Second One, was ordered. It premieres at 9 p.m. Wednesday on Syfy.

    Bachelorette Andi Dorfman: I was attracted to Josh Murray from the beginning

    Bachelorette (no more) Andi Dorfman stopped by Good Morning America on Tuesday to show off her ABC swag (aka engagement ring) from former pro baseball player Josh Murray. The 27-year-old lawyer and her 29-year-old grinning fiance held hands and looked pretty happy. “I definitely knew there was that chemistry and attraction with him,” Dorfman said of their first meeting. “I'm definitely an overthinker, though, so it took me till the very end.” Plus she had to break up with 24 guys first. No wedding date has been set yet; the couple need to do more publicity first.
