I Heart Joan
Andy Cohen celebrates Hoda Kotb's new book ... and declares his love for Mad Men's Joan Harris.
Tonight is the finale of Flipping Out, and it's jam-packed! A trip to NYC, deadlines, fajitas at Casa Vega, and a bunch of reveals.
Bummed to have missed the Beverly Hills soiree celebrating the launch of the Housewives of 90210. Paris was there to cheer on her aunts, as was La Toya Jackson. I don't remember who LTJ was cheering on, but I like that she and Jeff Lewis were in the same room.
Last night in NYC, I was at Hoda Kotb's book party at Donny Deutsch's Upper East Side Townhouse and it was wall to wall NBC News superstars celebrating HodaWoman, including Matt Lauer, Kathie Lee (and Frank), Al Roker, Willie Geist, and Lester Holt - plus Joan Rivers, Gayle King, and just a trillion NYC media titans. It was a scene and Donny's townhouse is supermodern and massive and unbelievably beautiful and (not to be crass but it was all anyone was talking about). Must be worth 30 million bucks.
When I got home, there was the GREATEST thunder and lightning storm we've had in a long time. It was a turn-off-the-lights, light-the-candles, open-the-windows, crank-the-music kinda night, and watching lightning bolts light up the Manhattan sky followed by massive thunderclaps was never so fun. I rode that storm to death!
Then I caught up on Mad Men late last night. The S is hitting the F at Sterling Cooper Draper Price is in bad shape, and I don't know what's going to happen. That being said, I could barely keep my eyes open for the show and had to re-watch a scene with Don and Peggy three times, and I still don't know what was said. Is it wrong that I think Sally is a better actress than her mom? Is it OK that I want to nuzzle Joan? I am in deep misery that next week is the finale. Me NO likey this. At. All.
Had a wonderful breakfast with Isaac Mizrahi this morning at Cafe Cluni. He was wearing Autumn Whites. And a bandana.
