Hey, big spender: Shark Tank star Kevin O’Leary, aka “The Mean One,” hosted a decadent “Wine & Dine” dinner at STK Miami last week. The Canadian investor who has his own wine label linked up with the Miami Beach restaurant to curate a special four-course dinner paired with O’Leary’s finest red and white selections and diamond-encrusted silverware. Among the delish-sounding items on the menu: foie gras with huckleberry marmalade; pan-seared halibut; and 50-day dry aged prime rib eye. The feast was finished off by oh so apropos devil’s food cake. O’Leary was overheard telling guests like former ’NSYNC singer Joey Fatone that he’ll be spending the entire month of January in Miami and looks forward to hosting more vinophile-friendly events, priced at $125 a head, at STK.
The Rock is getting outnumbered. The action star born Dwayne Johnson announced on Instagram that his girlfriend, singer Lauren Hashian, is expecting a girl. In the proud post he wrote, “I was raised by and live with amazing and strong women, so the universe felt we needed one more.” Hashtags included: #BringOnMoreEstrogenInOurHome #MeAndPuppyHobbsAreTheOnlyDudes #2xProudPapaBear #JustOverHereMakingBabiesAndStuff. Johnson has a teen daughter with ex Dany Garcia.
Khalilah Ali, aka “Mrs Muhammad Ali,” is the special guest at the ribbon-cutting ceremony at 2 p.m. Friday at Gallery Of Stars novelty shop at 2808 Hollywood Blvd. in Hollywood. The boxing legend’s ex-wife will close out the event with an autograph signing and hopefully a juicy story or two. The mother of Ali’s four kids has a place in Deerfield Beach and is reportedly coming out with a memoir.
