Celeb life imitates soaps
May 16, 2004
Aaron Spelling loosely based Dynasty on his filthy-rich Beverly Hills friends the Davises, who, like the Carringtons, made their billions in the Colorado oil biz. Friday night, at Nancy Davis' 11th annual Race to Erase MS fundraiser, Spelling said, "Not only did I base the show on them, I filmed an episode at their home in Colorado."
Below: O.C. star Mischa Barton and Brandon Davis made their first big appearance at his family's Race to Erase MS fundraiser.
But it wasn't until this past year, when Nancy's eldest son Brandon, an art dealer, began dating O.C. darling Mischa Barton, that the family's real-life soap opera began heating up.
The Century Plaza Hotel event was truly a coming-out party for this red-hot Hollywood couple, who joined hands on the catwalk with annual co-chair Tommy Hilfiger at the conclusion of his celebrity fashion show.
"They're just nice young kids who have a high-profile life, and I would like them to be anonymous," said Nancy Davis of Brandon and her two younger sons, adding that, "Mischa is my son's girlfriend, and she's very, very sweet."
Barton said she and Brandon will summer in the South of France with her family. "It's been amazing," Brandon said of their budding romance.
The evening offered other soapish twists. Brandon grew up with Paris and Nicky Hilton, who were once related to the Davises by marriage. (Paris and Nicky's aunt on their mother's side was married to Nancy's brother.) But recently, Brandon and Barton got into a feud with the Hilton girls (nobody is saying about what) and are now on the outs. Brandon defended Paris during her sex tape scandal, calling her "family," but now had nothing nice to say about her.
With Paris in Australia, her Simple Life co-star Nicole Richie (whose godmother is Nancy Davis) walked the red carpet alone and said she hopes the feud ends soon: "We've all known each other so long that I'm hoping everything will just blow over."
Rocking to the sounds of Cyndi Lauper and David Lee Roth near the stage was Tori Spelling, seated alongside fiancé Charlie Shanian. The two will wed in Malibu this August with papa Aaron walking her down the aisle.
