Note to clients of Kirshenbaum Bond + Partners: Next time you dine with Jon Bond at a trés chic Manhattan eatery, don’t ask him how he got the reservation.
During last night’s episode of The Simple Life 3, Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie “interned” at the agency with cataclysmic results. In addition to (literally) eating the agency’s lunch and handing out photocopies of Nicole’s breasts along with shots of Jack Daniel’s to young male staffers, the ding-batty duo showed a total lack of real-world skills as Bond and Richard Kirshenbaum’s assistants. While ordering food for a meeting, Paris blanked on Richard’s name and called him, “Kirshenbeanie, or whatever.”
Nicole fared somewhat better. When Jon asked her to get a reservation at a booked restaurant “by any means necessary,” she promised the maître d’ that Bond would paint his nipples red and do a striptease as well as “pleasure the owner.” When that failed, Nicole confided that Bond was on his way to jail for a life sentence and wanted his last meal to be at the eatery. She scored reservations, prompting Bond to exclaim, “You’ve got a future in this business.”
It’s their keen eye for talent that keeps these boys on top. One question though—is this going on their reel?
