The Cocktail and Couture party was really fun. It was great to see how generous and big-hearted my friends are. Sonya is a great hostess and knows how to throw a party. We raised a lot of money for the Soho Partnership and had a good time doing it.
Alex is usually receptive when I have something to say to her so I felt very comfortable telling her how disturbed I was about her message to Jill. I was surprised that she would deliver such a spiteful message. It was out of character for Alex to do this and I think she used this occasion to get back at Jill.
I wasn’t expecting an apology from Alex; I was expecting remorse. I’ve known Alex for three years now and she is not a mean person. It was totally out of character for her to be so cruel. Jill is my friend so I naturally feel protective of her but of course I would support her if she chose to work things out with Bethenny.
I had a great time with Coerte at the Gotham party. I met him last summer and we immediately hit is off because we share a lot of the same friends and we both like to write. He’s really smart, interesting and fun. Coerte’s new book, Scandalocity is sure to be a huge hit.
Being with my good girlfriends is always therapeutic. I find it easier now that time has gone by to talk about how my divorce affected me. Although I maintained my dignity throughout the break up of my marriage, I still hurt inside. I was anxious about the future but I worked through my feelings with the help of my girlfriends and the Chopra Center.
The surprise I showed upon hearing from Ramona that Bethenny’s father passed away was genuine. Because Bethenny and I aren’t close, I had no idea that her father was that ill. I think that Bethenny can share information with whomever she chooses and that Ramona wasn’t under any obligation to tell us about her father. I’m glad Ramona shared because I would not have known otherwise. I lost my father a few years ago and I know how difficult it is to lose a parent.
