OK, before I get to the nonsense, let me remind you that there's a new episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey tonight. And while I'm on the plug-train, what'd you think of Kathy's premiere last night and are you gearing up for the Top Chef Masters premiere?
I had no blog yesterday because I just couldn't. I had NOTHING. I would've said how much fun I'd had at the beach, and that I finally saw Dolly on "60 Minutes" and may the Lord shine on she and Morley Safer. And I missed the Tony's but everybody said it was actually kind of good for the first time maybe ever. And that blog would've bored you and I and so I didn't think twice about just sparing us all.
And Liza diagnosed my condition as "blogger's block." Get it? And what a fitting date for this syndrome to occur, the day of the Webby Awards! This is the awards show honoring the best of the net that's turned into something of an institution over the past few years, drawing huge stars and a fun crowd. It's under the perview of a team led by Rodger Berman, husband of Rachel Zoe. Who'dathunk?
So last night it was Rodger and Rachel welcoming people like Cameron Diaz, Martha Stewart, Lisa Kudrow, Sarah Silverman, Jimmy Fallon, Charlie Rose, and a bunch of hot dudes who work in various aspects of the web who look gay but are very straight and supercute.
The whole shebang took place at Cipriani Wall Street, which was last home to the NYC Housewives Reunion; I had some mild tremors walking into the event. Liza and I were seated at an awesome table with one of the three Twitter founders (I think I'm on the verge of tweeting btw - but that's another blog, or tweet) and his date, Colleen. So Colleen and I are talking about reality TV, of which she is a slave and a fan and scholar, and she finally reveals her secret: that she was a cast member of a popular reality show. It took us about :15 to put the pieces together and realize that we were talking with Survivor Season 1 Superstar Colleen!
