It all went down Sunday at Woodside Health and Tennis Club…
Just this side of State Line – yes – in Kansas. The girls were there and once again Woodside proved why it’s No. 1 in hot bodies and poolside fun. Don’t believe me? Check the pics.
I got there before just 11 AM, worked out and hit the pool.
One thing that sets Woodside apart is it has three large pools behind the main clubhouse. Two for adults only, the other a family pool. One pool has cocktail service and a bar. It also has some of Kansas City’s finest ladies.
Now I know some of you like the Jones Store Pool.
But that is basically a public pool that anyone can get into for a few bucks. Not so with Woodside. It’s members only or member guests. There were a ton of guests Sunday our first real summer day this year. And it was 90 degrees of fun.
At 11 AM only a few of the 20-somethings were out.
I took this group shot of some of the first to get there. Yes, it includes 2011 finalist on ABC’s The Bachelor, Lisa M. She’s the girl in the middle with the black and white swim suit. Nice, very nice.
We spoke about her show this past season. "Well it was very nice, I loved it in fact. The Bachelor was handsome and sweet but not my type. I was only 23 and he was 37 – too old for me."
Guess that leaves me out, huh?
She was bright and clean cut; so was her entourage. All of whom were KU types. She ran track at KU.
By 1 PM the pool was getting packed – maybe 300 people. The chairs were about gone. Then it happened, the poolside return of Black Barbie and her smaller cousin.
Yep, they were the only black girls at the pool.
They caused quite a stir. Barbie told me that she is better now and that we should start dating again. She’s more mature now at age 22. When I met her she was 19. Go figure.
She’s a fun girl, though. To make it even odder, another lady many of us know from around the bar scene, Kristin Morgan showed up with her new boyfriend, one of the Martini Corner owners. No, not Chris Seferyn – they’re broken up. His partner is the new boyfriend. Kristin is best known for dating millionaire times 50-plus in dough, Mark Morgan. She’s the one in the middle with Barbie and her little cousin.
Yep, by 3 PM they were all out there.
Maybe 200 new members were in the under 25 club. Mostly ladies, very nice. Even former All-American from MU Bill Whitaker showed up (he later played for Green Bay). The KC Star was repped by Local section columnist Steve Penn.
It was fun and there was plenty to see and look over.
It must be spring fever – or is it summer fever?
After Barbie went home, I got a call from physical fitness model Holli. She wanted to make up with me. Hmmm.
They all must have had too much fun and sun.
Jones is coming soon. It’ll be hard to beat Woodside and it’s only gonna get better as summer starts next week.
