But you would be wrong. About me at least. It’s true that I grew up in this town and I’ve lived here all my life. I’m Beverly Hills-born and bred—but I am definitely not your typical Beverly Hills mom.
Can you believe I know some people who never set foot inside a grocery store? They literally never do the marketing for their families! They send their housekeeper or nanny or assistant instead. I do the grocery shopping for my family. It’s just not the same if I don’t—my kids always notice that something isn’t quite right. (My oldest, Farrah, is 23 and through college and has her own apartment now. But Alexia, who’s 15, Sophia, who’s almost 12, and of course Portia are all still here with me.) I know exactly what they want and need. Did you see our Real Housewives reunion special after Season One? Do you remember when Andy Cohen asked if any of the cast knew the price of a gallon of milk? I was the only one who raised my hand! And I was only 20 cents off, though I don’t think he was accounting for the higher prices in Beverly Hills. At my house we go through three gallons of milk a week, the 1% kind. Two I get during the weekly marketing and then I usually have to run back for another before the week is over.
