Sharon Ferguson, the chair of the board of my non-profit, the Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention, teamed up with Mickey Boardman, editor-at-large of the hip, fashion magazine “Paper,” to put on an unusual event downtown and downstairs at the Darby Hotel. Many people from the fashion industry, writers, dancers, young actors, and a full contingent from Atlanta joined in celebrating the 40th anniversary of “Klute”.

i had dinner at Elio’s the night before with Mickey and Andy Cohen —a getting-to-know-you sort of affair that was a lot of fun.

HERE I AM WITH MEGAN FERGUSON, A WONDERFUL YOUNG (SAUCY) ACTOR WHO HAPPENS TO BE THE DAUGHTER OF SHARON FERGUSON, SHARON WORKED REALLY HARD TO MAKE SURE EVERYTHING RAN SMOOTHLY, ROUNDING UP PIECES OF JEWELRY AND CLOTHS THAT RESEMBLED MY COSTUMES IN KLUTE. SHE HAD HER DAUGHTER (MEGAN) HELPING OUT AND TURNS OUT, MEGAN IS A DEMON WHEN IT COMES TO CLOSING SILENT AUCTIONS. SHARON’S SON, ELLIOT, EDITED 3 CLIPS I CHOSE FROM KLUTE TO SHOW AND DISCUSS WITH ANDY DURING OUR DIALOGUE.

SAMANTHA WALSH, JENNA BUSH, GRACE GUMMER, ME AND MEGAN

SANDRA BERNHARD DID A FUNNY STAND UP BIT AND THEN HELPED WITH THE LIVE AUCTION. A REAL MENSCH AND I AM SO HAPPY TO HAVE A NEW FRIEND.

ANDY COHEN INTERVIEWED ME ABOUT THE MAKING OF “KLUTE” AND I AM ETERNALLY GRATEFUL TO HIM. WE HAD A GOOD TIME. NOW I CAN’T WAIT TO DO HIS SHOW.

GRACE GUMMER, ME AND AMANDA SEYFRIED. I SO ENJOYED MEETING THESE YOUNG ACTORS (AND THERE WERE MANY) AND EVESDROPPING ON THEIR CONVERSATIONS. DON’T FORGET AMANDA PLAYED MERYL STREEP’S DAUGHTER IN “MAMA, MIA” SO SHE AND GRACE ALREADY KNEW EACH OTHER.

HERE’S THE BEAUTIFUL GANG OF FRIENDS WHO FLEW UP FROM ATLANTA TO HELP CELEBRATE

OUR WONDERFUL STAGE MANAGER AND ALL-ROUND LIFE-SAVER, STEPHAN KIPP
