This aint no foolin’ around
Last Shabbos, the Riddinger mishpochah of Miami Beach, Florida celebrated the bas mitzvah of their lovely daughter Amber. Here at Jewlicious we wish Amber a hearty mazel tov and she should grow to be a true eishess chayil and bas yisroel. I mean, after the $500,000 simchah they threw for her, she better grow up to be like, the next messiah!
Or not. The party, whose theme was “Butterflies and Bling,” featured Amber’s $27,000 Dolce & Gabbana gown, 100,000 crystals and the launch of both Amber No. 13, the soft, sweet floral-scented perfume the teen created just for the occasion and Gossip, Amber’s new line of club clothing. Guests arrived in pink limos and were met by a pink carpet and a bevy of photographers and journalists. Amber’s Bat Mitzvah also included a live performance by guests Ashanti and Ja Rule. Other guests included rap label Inc. president Irv Gotti, Playboy Playmate-turned-actress Brande Roderick, Nicole Richie’s husband-to-be, DJ AM, and New York Mets catcher Mike Piazza and his model wife, Alicia Rickter.
Piazza looked around nervously and stated “I hope our daughter one day doesn’t expect something this big” while for rapper Ja Rule,
… it was his first bat mitzvah. “I’m Uncle Ja,” he said, with his arm wrapped around a beaming Amber. “I’m really here just to scare all the little boys, the little 13-year-old bad boys that try to hit on little Amber. That’s why I’m here.”
After the Bat Mitzvah, Ashanti, Ja Rule and Irv Gotti hightailed it to New York for the first day of Gotti’s money laundering trial. And what of little Amber? One would like to think that while opening her presents she maybe contemplated her parshat hashavuah, Lech Lecha, wherein Abraham, the future founder of Judaism, rejects his family’s practice of idol worship.
Yeah. Bar Mitzvah Disco‘s got nothing on these people.
