A lot of guys including Garth and Wayne have had crushes on Heather Locklear. Trevor Rees-Jones of Dallas’s’ Chief Oil & Gas is one of them. But few are energy billionaires with enough, well, pull, to summon the blonde actress to party with them on their birthday. That’s just what happened recently, when Rees-Jones celebrated his 60th with a big bash at his ranch out in Eastland County. It was actually his wife, Jan, who arranged for Locklear to fly in for the party (talk about a good spouse), where the entertainment was provided by the Blues Brothers and the Eagles.
Rees-Jones, who’s on the cover of the current D CEO,Â is sort of used to heady company, though. The other night there was a “sponsor party” at the home of Lisa and Kenny Troutt for the upcoming Robert S. Folsom Leadership Award Dinner honoring Rees-Jones. Among the guests was former President George W. Bush; W and his wife Laura are serving as honorary chairs of the dinner. The uber-connected Jim Francis, who’s chairing the Oct. 5 event, warned the Troutts’ guests to expect a “few surprises” on Wednesday. They probably shouldn’t look for Richie Sambora to be one of them.
