A Sour Note

Everyone wants to sit at a conversation-creating table at industry bashes — someone to bash during the long evening. 

So how about this table at Barbara Davis’ Carousel of Hope honoring Quincy Jones and Clive Davis last Saturday night: Jackie Collins, Barbara Sinatra, Veronique Peck, Police Chief Bill Bratton and wife Rikki Kleiman and the Sumner Redstones. But, Sumner said he expected to be sitting with the Larry Kings and told Barbara Davis he was leaving. Barbara, unfazed, told him to go ahead and leave — adding, “You are very rude.”

Ah yes, the table then had plenty to talk about — and so did the guests at Nikki Haskell’s Sunday luncheon honoring Barbara Davis and Clive Davis (no relation). They included  restaurateurs Michael and Eva Chow, Wolfgang Puck and Gelila Assefa (expecting their second son in December), Brett Ratner, David Niven, Jr., the George Schlatters, Jacqueline Bissett, Linda Foster, Diane Warren and the Freddie Fields.
