Last week I went to New York to promote the book and shoot a short segment for the Bethenny show, which was perfect because I really needed a good night’s sleep away from my snoring husband and really, really needed a good haircut (Thank you, Ouidad!)
I sat on a panel with reality TV stars Tia Mowry and Jenni Pulos to discuss “mommy issues of the day.” Please note Bethenny’s face below while listening to me babble about Lily critiquing my naked body.
(She did tell me I smelled good, so that’s something.)
And then Jenni Pulos started rapping about poop. And I wasn’t sure how I was supposed to respond since everyone else was bee-bopping and dancing in their seats, so I just sort of sat there like, is she really rapping about poop or am I imagining it? Proof that I wasn’t imagining it…
And then I ran into Real Housewives of New Jersey star Kathy Wakile, and I informed her that she was really short in real life, which I’m sure she loves hearing. She also looks really young and I told her that, so maybe I made up for it?
I spent the train ride home ripping off the eyelash extensions that were applied in single strands, so if you didn’t know better, it would have looked as if I were ripping out actual eyelashes. Which is probably why the two people next to me got up and moved. At least I smelled good, folks!
So, that was my 24 hour trip to New York last week. And also why I really shouldn’t be allowed to leave the house.
