'Gilligan's' or Governors Island

Cindy discusses the Governors Island party and hair removal.

Gilligan’s Island aka Governors Island:

This is going to age me, but I think it puts everything in to perspective. Picture this:

Thurston Howell throws a birthday party for his beautiful wife Mrs. Lovey Howell, while stranded on an extremely cold and windy island with nothing other than picnic tables and champagne. Oh and then Mary Ann and Ginger stop by. . .

Yes! You guessed it! We are in the new spin-off of Gilligan’s Island. I’m Mary Ann and you can obviously guess the rest of the characters.

To clear everything up I think it was wonderful what Thurston, I mean Simon, did for Alex, but it's sometimes hard for me to get out my own house in Manhattan. And now I had to trek with the girls to an unstable weather island. It was freezing and super windy with no shelter, and champagne was toppling everywhere. I really don’t see why we all had to leave Manhattan when we all live there so . . .I escaped earlier than the rest.

Kelly Killoren Bensimon– Mom/Friend of The Year: Next, I don’t think everyone really understands how upset I was and how helpful and understanding Kelly has been (SHE IS THE BEST MOM EVER!) I had a little meltdown at dinner over my nanny taking advantage of me. I know, I know -- I come off like a confident woman, but outside of the office and in my personal life I’ll admit it. . .I am a push. . .push. . .PUSHOVER! Yes I said it! Kelly was able to console me and give me advice when my then-nanny essentially made her own hours and came and went as she pleased.

If you are mom, you’ll totally understand. . .you want nothing other than to make your children as happy as possible, and sometimes all the time you put yourself on the back burner and jeopardize your own happiness. Having my girls love who they are with puts a huge smile of my face and after all, these women are my family. They help me take care of the two most important things in my life, Jesse and Zoe. You have to make sure that everyone in the situation is happy, including YOURSELF!

Back to Business: I had LuAnn, Sonja, and Kelly come to a girl’s private spa day at one of my completely bare locations where they were able to remove some unwanted hair. It was actually quite comical to see LuAnn get all proper on us speaking about hair removal! I created completely bare so that women and men have a place to feel comfortable speaking about hair removal. Now I have my website to act as a public forum. . .so ask away! Ask any personal questions that you may have about hair growing in weird places – it’s NATURAL!

Sooo. . . for the next Andy Cohen poll. . .Who wants to see LuAnn get VAJEWELED?!

Heather: I'm Obviously a Glutton for Punishment

Heather talks about how she's tried to help Sonja, and why she's letting Bethenny take the reins. 

Back to Business 

I’ve always tried to be on Team Sonja. And to contradict her recent blog, I don’t ever, have never, and will never stand on a soap box unless I am advocating for a charity or helping others. I also don't preach, and I don't judge another. Strong opinions, however, mostly in areas I am well versed, I do often have. These are simple facts about me. 

I have been down Sonja "Sexy J" Morgan's rabbit hole before: spending valuable time, energy, and favors on her pursuits, unfortunately, to no end. I was not at the lunch Sonja referred to saying the girls haven’t been supporting her, nor was I picking on her at this event. I was simply not in the know that Sonja had sourced a group to back a fashion endeavor, hiring freelance consultants and a designer to pull a collection together. And I was surprised to learn from Bethenny that she had. I was interested to learn more about it and lend whatever I potentially could. But, 'The Countess' boomed in and, as the case often goes, things flew off the rails. And it's frustrating. 

Meanwhile, Bethenny may "suck at relationships," but she did a great job delivering succinct and solid advice to team Sonja about timelines, vendor partners, and the simple laws of supply and demand. She can also handle a bitchy fashion chick like a champ! 

But back to Sonja...please, dear, if you are going to call me out on anything, please let it be that I'm an obvious glutton for punishment! Why do I even care?! Having worked in the industry for over 25 years and launching my own successful brand Yummie by Heather Thomson, I’ve been around the block enough at this point to offer valuable knowledge to someone just starting out. And I've always been eager to help Sonja, so I would have thought she would have wanted to hear my thoughts on her new venture?  

I’ve genuinely wanted to see Sonja focus and succeed.

Heather Thomson

I’ve genuinely wanted to see Sonja focus and succeed. As a group, we’ve all been waiting for so long to see something actually come to fruition from Sonja Morgan’s many, many pursuits. Personally, while I'm eager to see more in this new venture, I’m still rooting for her Nigerian Football team--that one remains an all-time favorite, but I’ve yet to be invited to a game or to this showroom. I would take the call, though. 

What's real, or not so real, is that spring has sprung, and so have Ramona's boobers! And a visit to any retailer, or even a website--where one’s spring 2015 collection would potentially live in all of its glory--may lead one to think not much has changed, but it’s a journey nonetheless.
