June is so yellow I can't handle it! Thanks for all your sweet birthday wishes yesterday and a super special shout out to Andy's Blog reader Andrew and his Chicago posse for the beautiful orchid. Wow. Anthony and I were very touched.
So on Monday I finally broke bread with the (self-described) "fat girl" who bid 1600 bucks to have lunch with me at the Palm. She's a stunner called Julie from Scarsdale and we had a blast. She watches EVERYTHING and breaks the shit down; she knows more about Bravo than many people at Bravo! Needless to say we went deeper than deep and I should've had her sign a confidentiality agreement. It was a fun lunch!!
Monday night was the first screening of NYC Prep at the The Paley Center for Media followed by a panel discussion featuring members of the cast, producer Lenid Rolov, and me. The cast is literally kids from prep schools all over NYC, and they are kids like no other. Mini-adults is more like it. They lead lives at 16 that most don't at 36. I am anxious for this show to get going so we can discuss ...
After the (riveting) panel discussion, I motored downtown to a superfancy dinner on top of the High Line, the elevated railroad tracks that have been converted into a public park running up a few miles of the West Side. This project has been in deveopmentl for over 10 years and Monday night was essentially the first time the "public" was going up there to check out phase one of the project. By "public" I mean 200 very very fancy New Yorkers and random people like me.
