You’ve got to come out to Malibu! It’s our version of the Hamptons. But it’s a lot more mellow. Every summer, we rent a house right on the beach. I leave the Manolos at home and wear flip-flops in every color. Peter loves being by the water, and it’s great for Gia because she surfs, though she’s way too shy to ask Kelly Slater — the world surf champ who hangs out down here — for tips.
The best thing about Malibu is that we’re outside the city, but still close enough to have friends drop in. Frankie [Rayder] and Roman [Coppola] always come down, so do Peter’s cousins Balthazar [Getty] and Rosetta [Getty], along with the rest of the family.

Saturday’s become bonfire and barbecue night. I love bonfires because it takes everyone back to childhood. Last weekend, we had birthday s’mores for Peter. Selma Blair, Gina Gershon, Lisa Eisner, Roman Alonso and Johnny and Linda Ramone were all here. Very casual — hot dogs for hors d’oeuvres, then ribs, chicken and cheeseburgers. Of course, we also had a lot of mojitos.
But when we’re not in the mood to cook, it’s all about Nobu. Saw Ozzy Osbourne there last Friday. His daughter Kelly rides around on her bicycle in Cross Creek. She’s so cute! It’s like being in a small town here.
I’m going kayaking now. It’s so amazing because the dolphins will be right there with me.
Jacqui and Peter Getty, and her daughter Gia Coppola, are vacationing in Malibu.
