Pete Still Misses Kate


I remember Pete Doherty and Kate Moss. When I first started doing this blog, they were the Amy Winehouse and Blaaaake of their day. It seemed like everyday there was a new scandal and a new arrest for Pete. No jail time of course. No, I have decided that whoever he managed to sleep with when he was turning tricks in the past must have come through for him all of the times when he was arrested because no one has that many lives. I mean Blaaaaake punched a guy and it seems like he has been in jail for fourteen years. Pete literally could give DMX a run for his money in arrests and still never does any time.

Anyway, Pete is longing for Kate Moss and wants her back. I bet he does. Pete has probably learned over the past year that those little paper tags hanging off of clothes are a price and that someone needs to pay what is on that tag. With Kate, he just sat back and let her pay for everything while he drugged her cats and scared her kid.

I knew Kate had some money but she must have a fortune from modeling that must have compounded daily or something. According to some of the UK reports, Kate spent as much as $500K for the two week vacation to Thailand. That is like $100M anywhere else. She paid for the entire vacation for six people, including a $45K dinner tab. Oh, and there were only four people at dinner. Do you know how hard it must be to spend $45K at dinner at a Thai beach resort. Did they have the 24K gold coconut ice cram for dessert or something? When you got a bill for $45,000 after dinner would you say to yourself, "you know, in a week or so I won't even remember this dinner and it is more than most people around the world make in a year?" Yeah, I don't think she thought that either.

I honestly don't care what people spend. They earned it and if they want to spend it on meals, it is their choice. That is like $10,000 a person for dinner. That blows my mind. Obviously fashion modeling pays well. Forget being a teacher to kids, go do some heroin, look like a waif and make a few million.

$4500 maybe, $45000 never. There is no way you could get that bill for a dinner for 6. Hell no.

If someone thinks its possible, i would love to hear how.

I wonder how long an AIDS orphanage could run the entire operation on $45000.

Buuuuuut...if you only eat ONE dinner a year!


Yeah...you see where I'm going

Dammmmnnn I knew Kate was a supermodel when that actually meant something but I never knew her money was long like that. Sheesh even Naomi and Linda are still working and hustling billionaires in order to live. What's Kate's secret?

but still...

i find it hard to believe you could spend $45K a YEAR in Thailand. at $123/day you could live like a king there.

"Buuuuuut...if you only eat ONE dinner a year!"

Um, that's still considerably more than my annual salary, pre-taxes. I could only eat once in a decade.

I can believe. They're at a posh resort which probably has a well-stocked wine cellar with high-end product.

Last year a co-worker had a dinner meeting with some very senior execs from an internationally recognized company. Co-worker let the VP choose the wine. Sonofabitch chose a bottle that was $14,000. Seriously.

I'd kill to see the detail of that tab.

Harriet Hellfire said...

Yup, the wine alone could have racked that bill up. I heard that Thailand is pretty cheap for the regular travellers but they DO have luxury resorts. 45K for a dinner - sure! They put gold in all sorts of meals these days. Why? Because they CAN.

Far be it from me to defend Kate Moss, but she doesn't merely model; she also has a deal with TopShop worth a fortune, as well as her own clothing line, and is very, very savvy about business matters. If memory serves, she's got her own perfume (or more than one, perhaps), too. That money doesn't all come from modeling, and as a matter of fact, when you figure in all the endorsements, I daresay that modeling makes up the smallest part of her income.
