It Boy Facts: Fabian Basabe

Google “Fabian Basabe” and the search will invariably lead one to head-scratching headlines such as “Fabian Basabe is the Male Paris Hilton” and “New York IT Boy” and “That Asshole from Filthy Rich Cattle Drive.


Downright mystifying at first, I’ve become fierce friends with Fabian and his wife Martina — you know, the kind of cronies you feel you could comfortably phone for an off-market kidney should the horror arise — and I can tell you this, loyal readers: Fabian is effortlessly popular, charming, irreplaceable, unhinged, stylish, unfiltered, educated, skinny goals, authentic, spontaneous, devilish, fearless, solid, astute, wild and loyal like no other. I can’t help but notice when Fabian enters a room (typically armed with a Red Solo Cup brimming with his signature Skinny Bitch cocktail), the energy instantly shifts to a higher vibration — compliments of his come-hither looks, impeccable style and his innate understanding of joie de vivre.

My 11-year-old Ava (AKA the World’s Toughest Critic™) reflects on Fabian as, “Fun, well-mannered and a super good dad to Brando and his friends. He’s really funny and uses words I’ve never heard of, too.”

Snaps for being a witty D.I.L.F., Fabi.

Without further ado, I bring you my favorite bon vivant — Fabian Basabe’s — unfiltered musts, lusts and more.
