How selfless of her, really. Taylor's massive Mad Hatter-themed fête for her 4-year-old daughter Kennedy included oversized headgear for all, designer floral arrangements and a super-pink tea party. And of course no fourth birthday would be complete without a diamond Barbie necklace, psychic readings and signature cocktails. The total cost for this affair? $60,000.
And were the kids amazed, impressed and totally grateful?
Not really. Why? Maybe because they're four. The little girls, surprisingly unenthused by the extravagant tablescapes, preferred to hang out by the tree with their nannies. At least they'll always have the memories. (Oh, wait...)
The Richards sisters were unfortunately not able to make it either, since Kyle's 2-year-old Portia was having a birthday party that day as well. Kyle spent a far less egregious $12,000 on the party, and somehow managed to work an alpaca and a choo-choo train into the mix. (More fun than a tree? We think maybe.)
Still, it got us thinking, if these women had combined forces, what other ways (besides using their kids as a front to show off their wealth) could they have spent the $72,000?
- They could have purchased 14.4 Gift Arks.
- They could have funded Clay Walker's Charity Classic.
- They could have had a steak lunch with Warren Buffett.
- They could have tweeted Hugh Jackman for ideas.
- They could have paid of LA Weekly staffer Clint's student loans.
