This year, our trip to the Berkshires ended on a good note oddly enough. Dorinda’s house was ship-shape when we left and we all were looking forward to the holidays with friends and family. She definitely “made it nice” for us, and we appreciated her hospitality. Sometimes a hostess has to get the party started and Dorinda’s cake in the face was just what we needed to lighten the mood! So glad she didn’t burn her eyebrows off! Who can be sad while licking frosting off a friend’s face? Of course Sonja was all in…smooches for all!!
Last summer, I volunteered for the American Red Cross’s hurricane relief efforts in Florida, so when they asked me to host a holiday blood drive in NYC, I was all in. What’s better than giving the gift of blood? Unfortunately, because I’d been to Mexico within the last year, I was unable to donate, but I helped out at the event by bringing friends that could give blood, including my good friend Mary Gordon, at Mary Gordon Beauty. I was grateful the girls showed up and Bethenny sent her assistant with a generous donation of gift cards, but I was disappointed she couldn’t make it.
After my divorce, I needed a new apartment to start fresh and my friend, Ann #anniegetsitdone Cutbill at Douglas Elliman found me the perfect Upper West Side penthouse, completely furnished, sunny, with an outdoor area that Aston loves. That day, everything was perfect and little did I know what was coming. Talk about writing a new story! I didn’t think it would include getting arrested in Palm Beach. That was not part of the plan. I should have known that going to Palm Beach where I was married the year before probably wasn’t a good idea.
Until next week, why not find an American Red Cross Blood Drive near you at https://www.redcross.org/give-blood.
