Show and Tell from the City of Lights with “Monsieur Paris” himself–our dear Eric Ritter…

I LOVE MY BLOG! I love the fact that it gives all my friends from around the world an opportunity to tell me what they’ve been up to, and on occasion, even remind me of some of the outrageous parties we’ve attended together, complete with photos!

If you ever want to go to Paris, or find yourself in Paris, or anywhere in France for that matter, or even other French territories around the world–(if it has a French name, i.e. St. Barth–chances are, Eric can guide you)– and you need some expert advice, you have to get in touch with Eric Ritter. I do refer to him as “Monsieur Paris” because when it comes to Paris, this handsome French gentleman–who acquired a rare ‘American business sensibility’, and possess what many describe–un coeur d’or (a heart of gold)–knows just about everyone. He has zero degrees of separation…oh, and I have to add, this extends to other renowned areas of France too, like his native, Cote d’Azur. It’s no wonder he was the lead contact when Diddy needed to throw his ‘little soiree’ in St. Tropez. I’m sorry I couldn’t make that one Eric–but if you remember, I was throwing my own little soiree too in Marina Del Rey (can’t believe Diddy didn’t clear the date with me first). Eric tries to return to his hometown of Cap d’ Antibes whenever possible so that his beautiful baby boy, Maxence, can spend time with other members of their family. And, yes, in case you’re wondering, it is the same town where you’ll find the legendary, Hotel du Cap.

Thanks for the great memories Eric. Mr. H. loves to be reminded of Pamela Anderson’s fabulous party. And then the next day you managed to throw an EVEN MORE fabulous Birthday party for him at L’Etoile. I still remember the hefty bouncers at the door, recognizing Roy and saying, “Monsieur Anderson encore?” Anderson, Henderson, ok, for the French, the “H” is challenging! Yes, it is him again, and yes, they’re related. 🙂

On a more important note, he may party with the rich and famous, but nothing is more precious to Eric than his beautiful wife, Sandrine and their gorgeous children. When I asked how his little baby was doing, Eric responded, while placing his hand on his heart, “Maxence is always here!” Ok, ladies, get the tissues out. Yes, French fathers are tender-hearted.

Eric and Sandrine, Roy and I miss you–but no worries, I just received confirmation of my Cannes Press Accreditation–they’re welcoming me back. Secure the yacht Eric! 🙂
