Ladies who brunch
Brunch wars part two. I’m so happy we decided to stay neutral and go to both, otherwise who knows how long that drama would have continued. Anyway, this group isn’t one to turn down a good meal, or drink(s), so we ended up having a nice day. Bethenny’s get-together was basically a Skinnygirl sample sale, but who doesn’t like party favors?
We all love Sonja, but it continues to be hard to watch someone you care about struggle.
I just hope Bethenny knows what she’s in for trying to bring Sonja that "come to Jesus" moment--I’ve sure found that to be a fruitless endeavor in the past. We all love Sonja, but it continues to be hard to watch someone you care about struggle.
Eat, Pray, Love
At the next meal with Bethenny and Lu, I started trying to tell the girls about my appearance earlier that day on MSNBC’S Your Business with JJ Ramberg. I had rushed to lunch right after the show, and you could see my adrenaline was kicked up. I thought my explanation of Your Business was pretty succinct, but just in case, let’s try it again: An aspiring entrepreneur has a minute to pitch their concept, followed by industry experts offering their feedback on whether or not the pitcher is ready to take their idea before investors. The panel also troubleshoots questions from new or growing business owners. See the Shark Tank similarities? I love doing shows like this one, because it gives me the chance to interact with other entrepreneurs and share some of the lessons I’ve learned along the way. And yes, I can talk! I actually love to talk, and usually have a lot to say--it’s just part of my charm.
Pretty much anything I had to say this afternoon got lost in translation, because as soon as Ramona’s name was mentioned, Bethenny’s blinders went up. I could have been telling her I had a cure for cancer, and she wouldn’t have wanted any part of it. Hopefully those two can work it out. On the upside, I ordered what’s become my new signature "yummie girl" cocktail: Don Julio Anejo, fresh lime juice, and agave. Cars and Rolexes all around when this takes off!
Till next week!
