I am back at the Holmby Hills house...

khan_manka_house.jpgDo not disturb me.  Last week was terrible and I think I snapped one of the screws in my leg

The ground has been broken in San'a, Yemen for the $1 Billion Dollar Manka Fun Park Yemen.  I'm curious to know who's idea it was for Manka Bros. to 100% finance this venture.  In talking with Yemen President Ali Abdullah Saleh, he told me they were willing to fund 90% of this park but we turned him down.  After going there and spending a little quality time, I believe this was a great error in judgment.  The President told me proudly that last year he had 45 tourists from other countries.  He's expecting 60 next year.  This will not be enough to cover the cost of the park.  Yes, I approved this deal but that doesn't make it my fault.  I haven't decided who will take the fall - but someone will fall.

The Yemeni Airport Guard removed all the alcohol from the Manka Bros. corporate jet (the Joey 1) so the ride home was awful.  Luckily the pilot, Ray Dyson, had a little bit of pot, so that helped. 

fabiola_beracasa.jpgI made Ray stop in St. Tropez to pick up alcohol and a good friend of mine, socialite Fabiola Beracasa, who needed a lift home to New York.  Fabiola had this young guy with her - Chace Crawford (from The CW TV show Gossip Girl).  He tried to talk to me about the show but I quickly handed him a list of the people who are qualified to talk to me and he isn't on that list.  I also told him that I hated most television shows especially those on my own network - MBS.  I pretty much only watch Ice Road Truckers and a home design show called Curb Appeal.  To get him to leave me alone, I told 'CC Rider' (which is what Chace Crawford wanted me to call him) that we would put him in some movie or TV show if that CW gig doesn't work out.  [Robin Rafe or Jay McBee - find something for this kid to do.]

Fabiola is planning her "End of Summer" party in the Hamptons.  I told her I would not mention anything about when it is or the guest list (all I can say is that Mort Zuckerman is on the bubble and Barry Diller is out - ha ha!).

And now I'm home.  I worry that we have just thrown $1 billion out the window.  Sixty tourists would have to pay over $150 million a ticket to break even in the first year.  Perhaps someone in accounting can help me with the math.
