Kevin Sacco isn't a celebrity, but on Instagram he is famous for flaunting his wealth, like the time he took a picture of himself bathing in an outdoor Jacuzzi in his penthouse suite overlooking the French Riviera. Or when the 20-year-old son of a real estate mogul in Italy spent 10,000 euros, or nearly $14,000, with friends at La Maison Blanche in Paris for his most recent birthday. "I'm showing off my parties, my bottles, my clubs, my travels, and people love this," said Sacco, who is known as @PrinceOfItaly on Instagram.

Grouper and Myst have driven to the top of a high hill on the night of their graduation from a New England boarding school for students with behavioral disorders. She's the daughter of a rock star. He's the son of a senator. Both have been severely damaged by the neglect of their self-involved parents. Even though they have each other, their misery is so great that they've come to the end of the line in their desire to live any longer. Playwright Mark St.

If it's true, as some have suggested, that rapper and singer Drake is the musical voice of his generation, one statistic on his new album is instructive: Through 13 tracks over the course of an hour, the platinum rapper mentions himself nearly 500 times. This third volume, called "Nothing Was the Same," sees the Toronto hip-hop superstar, 26, offering thoughts on his day-to-day, the spoils of his riches, his girls and his bitches (but seldom his ladies or women), his dad, his mom, his success and his isolation.

A textile heir testified today that he often took youngsters from a summer camp he ran for rich kids skinny-dipping but never molested them, contrary to the claims of four children. Jones Yorke Pharr III, 41, grandson of the founder of Pharr-Stowe textile mills, is on trial in Henderson County Superior Court on two counts of taking indecent liberties with minors attending Falling Creek Camp in Tuxedo.

You will probably not be shocked to learn that the children of rich movie-industry parents are likely to grow up spoiled, unhappy and mentally unhealthy. Robert Westbrook brings personal experience to the subject, however, as the son of Hollywood gossip columnist Sheila Graham. His self-written bio sheet claims he couldn't publish this book while his mother was alive. Best known as the mistress of F. Scott Fitzgerald, she presumably had standards in fiction. "Rich Kids" would have horrified her.

Hollywood is a town that has always known how to feud. You do it behind closed doors or, if you must go public, you spend massive legal fees to do it in courtrooms or for free with angry words and nasty insinuations in gossip columns. (See: Eisner vs. Katzenberg, Ovitz vs. Everyone.) So what is it with the twentysomethings these days? The feuding of Young Hollywood has taken a tawdry turn lately, combining the nastiness of middle-school Queen Bee behavior with an ugly, menacing physical element.

When people started comparing Guy Oseary to Sammy Glick soon after Oseary began his fast-track rise at Madonna's Maverick Records, Oseary thought Glick was a real-life show-biz wheeler-dealer he just hadn't met yet. It wasn't until his friend Ben Stiller mentioned last year that he was writing a movie script from the Budd Schulberg novel that produced the ruthlessly ambitious Glick, "What Makes Sammy Run?," that Oseary realized Glick was fictional.

I'm bemused by Bush's proposal to spend $100 million in federal money plus assorted grants and gifts to send rich kids into the inner cities to help the poor kids. Why not use the money directly to help the poor kids escape from the inner cities, with upgraded education and skill opportunities--even jobs--and eliminate the middle people. Funds to build character in the rich kids as Bush proposes shouldn't come from the public purse. BESS CHRISTENSEN Lompoc

As homemade gifts go this holiday season, does it get better than this? "I never, never, ever said this in front of my son before," says Vin Del Negro , his boy Vinny sitting beside him. "I'm very proud of my son. " It's a few hours before the Clippers will win a record-setting 12th-straight game on his son's watch, and old school is in session. Vincent Augustine Del Negro names his middle child Vincent Joseph because "there's only one Vincent Augustine," he says.

Re "909: wrong number in beachside town," Sept. 22 I, for one, am a proud "909er" - that group so disdained by Orange County beach community residents for supposedly invading and causing trouble. My house is worth more than $700,000, and my household income is about $180,000. When I want to go to the beach, I go to Hawaii, where the water and beaches are clean and the locals are friendly. I refuse to spend my money in Orange County, where bigoted people are in abundance. I hope other 909ers read this article and stop spending their money in Orange County.

The line cooks had matching stickers pasted to their chef's jackets one Saturday night in mid-October, brave words for a bleak reality: "We are the future of Konocti." Sad-eyed housekeepers clutched instructions on how to apply for unemployment benefits and compared notes in soft Spanish about job prospects here in hard-knock Lake County: "Muy dificil." But leave it to the country music singer to get to the painful heart of the matter during what he called the possible "last concert ever" at Konocti Harbor Resort and Spa -- tony Northern California's rare blue-collar playground, which is set to close Tuesday.

And we thought we were going to see a summer recreation comedy. "Daddy Day Camp," the recast follow-up to the 2003 hit "Daddy Day Care," confronts two of the gravest issues currently facing Americans: war and foreclosure. Granted, the enemy is a rich kids' camp in a better neck of the woods and the bank threatening to yank the poor slob's property is remarkably negotiable in times of crisis.

July 29, 2007 | Robert Frank, Robert Frank is a senior writer for the Wall Street Journal and the author of "Richistan: A Journey Through the American Wealth Boom and the Lives of the New Rich," from which this essay is adapted.
Last year, I went to an unusual summer camp. It was a three-day affair, held in a small classroom at UC Irvine, with about 20 attendees. They began arriving early in a stream of Range Rovers, BMWs and Mercedes. All were in their early to mid-20s. And all were about to inherit millions of dollars from their parents. There were two platinum-blond sisters from a big California real estate dynasty, and two willowy brunets from a Northeast trash-hauling empire.

Let me introduce you to Brandon Davis, the grandson of oil mogul Marvin Davis. Brandon is known to his friends as "Greasy Bear." I wonder if you can sue a nickname? Brandon is a friend of Paris Hilton, and it was at her side last year that Davis distinguished himself in pop culture when he--in a thick-tongued rant outside a club--called redheaded actress Lindsay Lohan "Fire Crotch," for reasons that hardly need amplifying. Believe me, all this is going to become quite edifying real soon.

Re "Theft of Band Instruments Intensifies Disharmony Between Rivals UCLA and USC," Nov. 17: Shame on USC and in particular senior Jason Mangan, who proudly proclaims that "arrogance is part of the image we exude." In recent years USC has proudly publicized the improved academic achievement and hard-won scholarships of its students. An episode like this band fiasco with UCLA swiftly erases all of USC's efforts to modify the perception of USC students as spoiled, mean-spirited, rich kids majoring in "partying" and pranks.

I read "The Doctor Is 'In' " (by Paul Ciotti, Aug. 3) with mixed emotions--pleased that young T. Coraghessan Boyle had done so well, upset with its omissions and misconceptions. I knew Tom's mother, Rosemary, for at least 20 years prior to her death, and if she was an alcoholic (as he describes her), she hid it well while holding a most responsible job in the Lakeland School District in suburban New York. If there were rich kids in the area when Tom grew up, they were a handful.

Sean [Astin], maybe you should leave the shelter of your rich and famous "fraternity" and mingle with the masses. You might be surprised at how open-minded and friendly we can be! A word of advice to the "members of the tribe": Quit whining. LYNN E. POWERS Laguna Beach
