Mary explains the process of an "add-on" job, the use of "Chien de Provence," and the idea of being too rich or too thin.

I just came back from New York last night after a fun filled week of Watch What Happens Live (super blast, BTW!), some F.Schumacher design meetings, and a job in the Hamptons.

Glad to be home but could easily live on the east coast for the summer. I could also easily do the Andy Cohen show every week it was so much darn fun. That is really how I act most of the time, so I guess the cat is out of the bag. Those six minutes of business-self a week seem a lot scarier than it is. I got so many tweets and posts asking if we were all drinking a lot and the answer are NO! I paced myself so well that by showtime I had three sips and needed a drink in a desperate panic! That is my real self with about two sips of pinot! Scary huh? I had a blast with Rocco and Andy and think everyone should do it!

Well it's back to L.A., nose to the grindstone for me while I dream of those beautiful Long Island beaches. Speaking of beaches -- where the heck do I buy that gorgeous eyelet, beach shift Kathryn had on at Ross' party? It is so weird how small our world is since I've known Diana, the homeowner, since high school when we all wore girls' school uniforms. Small world out there. Lesson: be careful who you tick off.

Jeffrey and Ross are really super cute with their life looking like a Polo ad 24/7, don't ya think? I am a w---e for the whole styling aspect of one's life so I love to see who has what beach outfit, where, what's on the table, etc. They have a great Ralph Lauren-esque style those two, and I am glad Jeffrey finally delves into the culinary world. Hey, I would love if Suzanne Goin would give me a tip or two as I really like to cook. Maybe that's another show? What would I wear?
