Get ready, New York. Star Jones has sent out invites to her 50th birthday bash, a planned two-day celebration in the Gansevoort Hotel penthouse.
"Fifty and Fierce," reads the invitation. "Healthy, Happy and Still Here."
The extravaganza is set to begin Friday evening with a soul-cycle ride. Star invites her guests to "peddle to the metal for a special birthday ride at the coolest exercise class in New York," adding that shoes and shirts will be provided but you need to bring your own shorts or leggings.
Later, guests will attend what Star is calling a "Grown Women Slumber Party." The invitation asks, "When was the last time you just laughed till you cried? Don't you miss giggling, gossiping and great girlfriend gatherings? ... Bring your favorite jammies or comfy clothes and let's hang like we used to when we were kids."
And that's not all of it. On Saturday morning, guests will celebrate the birth of Star with another exercise class followed by a spa day, before enjoying "an old fashion house party" in the presidential suite and "after party on the roof till they throw us out," according to the four-page invite.
Star insists that no companies are providing free services for the party in exchange for publicity. "This is a private party that I'm throwing for myself with only my very personal friends, with no media and no media mentions. I do not want any media attention at all. I have no obligations to anyone for anything," Star tells me.
Happy Birthday, Star!
