Oh lord was there an insane event last night. It was the premiere party for Season 2 of The Real Housewives of New York City and everybody from the show was there, as was Patti Stanger, our "Millionaire Matchmaker" who returns to Bravo for Season 2 of her show tonight!
I was most excited to see the De Lessep's housekeeper, Rosie, who appears in Episode 2 or 3 with a fantastic makeover. I love the homespun wit of Rosanna, and made someone take a pic of us on my Blackberry:
Here is a very weird and screwed up shot of Bethenny, Patti, and RHNYC Exec Producer Jen O'Connell.
How hot do the Countess and Patti look!? You do realize that the Countess has a book on it's way called Class with the Countess, right?
I have said it before and I'll say it once more: I love these NYC ladies and theirs is one of a few shows whose rough cuts I watch ASAP because the show puts an ear-to-ear smile on my face. So does The Millionaire Matchmaker, by the way. Patti makes me LAUGH OUT LOUD. (That's LOL for you dummies out there.)
In other TV news, did you read that the amazing EW Editor Jess Cagle will co-host the Oscar pre-show with Sir Tim Gunn and GMA's Robin Roberts!? This is a great threesome, and a nice nod to anyone in the GLBT community who has campaigned for a very very very gay Oscar pre-show.
Joker, Joker, Joker! 3 of a kind! Has this ever happened?Yesterday I got an e-mail from Sonia, the Bravo exec who, among other duties, tallies the fan fave votes who said that yesterday's NY Times revealed why the Empire State building lights were purple and gold the last few nights. It seems they were in honor of the Westminster Dog Show, and the lighting was attended by Uno the beagle, the 2008 dog show winner.
Oy vey that Uno will go to the opening of an envelope! We turned him away at the door of the Real Housewives party last night. Purebred or not, we don't need riffraff like that at our party. Stay IN one night, Uno!
I actually love beagles. Maybe Uno will be my valentine.
CAB REPORT: This morning felt very 2007 in the back of 2J88 with a cup of coffee (I quit that 5 months ago) and a muffin (same). And the deja vu kept on coming when I spilled the coffee in my lap and my man (no nametag which I believe is a violation) yelled at me. I sorry! I sorry!
