Do you remember me complaining in June that my Buddha -- a birthday gift from the Perskys a few years ago -- was stolen off my deck in Sag Harbor in what can only be characterized as tempting the fates of karma? Well, I returned to my house for the first time in a month to find the Buddha safely returned and perched in it's given home!
What does this mean??!!???
I can only assume that the thieves came to their senses and realized that it is just plain bad to steal a Buddha. The fact that they returned it is amazing and I commend them for doing the right thing. And I forgive them. And I actually think it's awesome that they brought it back.
This kind of story seems to me like something that would happen in Jeff Lewis' world. Jeff has what might be described as the nuttiest, most hostile, client interaction tonight on Flipping Out. Poor Tracey, is all I can say.
Last night I was at an amazing benefit for Broadway in South Africa, which is a charity bringing Broadway performers to South Africa to teach arts education to kids who don't have access to a ball change, and such. There were incredible performances and it was an inspiring night.
Of course, everything was coming up Atlanta Housewives yesterday and the folks at Bravotv.com had little Ben Weiner stop by my office to interview Nene and Sheree. Is that genius? The video will be up in the next few days, so be sure to check back to watch.

And clearly people were talking about ATL last night because they were trending topics all over Twitter last night. Here's what topics were trending in the USA when I checked last night (this was before "Stunt Queen.")
