So this is (Russian) Christmas, what have you done?


Mikhail Prokhorov is spending his Russian Christmas far from cold Moscow. As he and many of his oligarchic Russian friends do every year around this time, the Nets owner is partying in the French Alps, and the Post's Page Six reports he is having a good time.

Russian billionaire boss Mikhail Prokhorov has been partying it up with a phalanx of beautiful women in the French Alps.

Prokhorov was spotted in the tony resort town of Courchevel with friends and an attractive entourage. A spy told Page Six that the NBA owner arrived at Le Comptoir de L’Apogée — known for its fireside Champagne Lounge and famous "ham-aging cellar" — to take over a private room Saturday night as the restaurant closed to its regular, rich customers.

"Twenty girls preceded him, and he then entered alone," said a spy, who added that Prokhorov arrived in a black Mercedes and wore a beige turtleneck while the girls were "dressed to thrill."

Page Six also reported that the gender arrangement at Prokhorov's private party was tilted heavily in favor of the males, but a Prokhorov spokesperson tells the Post ...and NetsDaily... that the there was basically as many women as men and in fact some at the party are married! No word yet on when Prokhorov will be in New York, but he is expected in London next week for the Global Games on January 16.
