After the show Carole Radziwill and her friend, Karen Duffy (you remember her, super hot model/actress from the 90’s, Almay spokesmodel and Revlon’s Charlie perfume girl!), were heading out with Michelle for a nightcap. On the elevator ride down, the ladies talked about dating, mutual friends, and what men were their current types. A writer, a model, and an actress all dishing on guys and living the oh so glamorous life. This, I thought, is one of those crazy Sex and the City New York moments that don’t usually exist in the day-to-day hustle and bustle of real NYC life. As I walked out behind them, Karen Duffy turned around to me and said, “Have a good night, I love your makeup by the way! It looks great!” The Almay-“tarantula eye”-mascara-lady (remember that commercial?) thought my makeup looked great?! SCORE!
Tuesday we were greeted with an adorable surprise; Donnie Wahlberg brought his sweet dog Lumpy with him to the show.
Since I research guests, I had read about Lumpy and was delighted to meet him in person. Plus, Jenny McCarthy graced us with her up-for-anything presence. I couldn’t wait to show some of the goofy Jenny promotional pics we had found months earlier in Heather Dubrow’s research, and learn a little about what “Heather Paige Kent” was like pre-Housewives. Finally! Another one of my burning Housewife questions would be answered. After the show the staff had a few drinks (Fresquila for me!), and we played a little dress up with the wigs that were used for the next night’s Ethan Hawke/Liam Neeson “Clubhouse Playhouse.” How did I look with the Caroline redheaded bob? Let’s just say I’m not posting pics of that for a reason. We also tried out a new game that our genius Game Producer, Paul, is working on. Things always get heated after the show when we play Paul’s games. My team won (I think)!
