Liz at the Lotsa Party
From today’s Liz Smith‘s column on The New York Post:
“The next thing we know, it may become popular to revert to respectability! I might even try for it myself!”
This was my answer to “E.T.,” “Extra,” “Access Hollywood,” CNN as they held out their microphones while I red-carpeted my way into Bergdorf’s for Madonna‘s kids’-book party. Her new one, “,” is hyped with the queen herself appearing where we never thought we’d see her – on the cover of Ladies Home Journal. (Ah, but I had her on the cover of Good Housekeeping years ago!)
The book is said to be quite good, and the actors playing foxes, greyhounds and rabbits inside the store were a big hit. Personally, I quaffed two watermelon martinis, grew weary of waiting for Madonna and walked over to Circo for dinner. There I found Sirio Maccioni himself, dining al fresco on the sidewalk with his wife, Egi. They are girding their loins for the November opening of the third incarnation of Le Cirque in the Bloomberg building, which is rising at Lex and 58th. One can hardly get into the crowded Circo these summer nights, so the new Le Cirque is eagerly anticipated.
P.S. to Madonna and “Lotsa de Casha.” People were stunned when they learned their autographed copies of the book cost $81! They were somewhat mollified that the “casha” was going to Unicef.
