Posted on October 16, 2013, in My Blog, with 21 Comments

First I went to Atlanta for the annual Empower party that raises money for my Georgia-based non-profit, The Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power & Potential. We honored Dr Sanjay Gupta with the Health Pioneer. It was a lot of fun and a big success. My favorite ex-husband, Ted Turner, was my date.

Turns out Dr Gupta went to University of Michigan and, with his wife Rebecca, lived near Jeff Daniels in a small lake town 15 minutes from Ann Arbor.…

ONE BILLION RISING

Posted on January 29, 2013, in Events, My Blog, with 16 Comments

It’s happening on February 14th, this Valentine’s Day: An international day of action to combat violence against women.

According to united nations’ statistics, ONE BILLION women on the planet are raped or beaten in their lifetimes so, conceived by writer/activist Eve Ensler and her global organization V-Day: Until the Violence Stops, ONE BILLION women and the men who love them will rise up to dance, sing, chant, flash mob, to say “enough!”

The horrible rape in India when a girl on a bus was pulled off, gang raped, brutalized and killed has received world-wide attention and helped raise the level of support for such an ambitious event.…

A HOLLYWOOD WEEKEND

Posted on January 15, 2013, in My Blog, with 18 Comments

I should have taken pictures but it felt inappropriate. So I’ll just have to use my words to tell you about the parties we went to this weekend. They were really fun. At the CAA party on Friday I hugged and congratulated Anne Hathaway who recently did a magnificent job emceeing the Women’s Media Center gala in NY and wowed everyone with her intelligence.…

THE 20TH ANNUAL ENVIRONMENTAL MEDIA AWARDS

Posted on October 17, 2010, in My Blog, with 15 Comments

A large group gathered at what used to be the Warner brother Studio’s back lot for the EMA Awards. Shot a scene with Tony Perkins for “Tall Story” close by…walking through a trailer park, stopping under a tree and singing a duet of “Cuddle Up a Little Closer.” I kid you not. I could feel the vibes as I sat watching the event unfold.…

VANITY FAIR PARTY

After the Vanity Fair dinner, we moved into the area where the party was to start once the people who had been at the Oscars (including the winners) began to arrive. There were a few friends who were fun to talk with—George Hamilton, George Schaefer who produced “Laugh-In” back in the day, Roger Freidman. Then the place really filled up and I got to see Kathryn Bigelow.…

EVE ENSLER: I AM AN EMOTIONAL CREATURE

Posted on February 11, 2010, in My Blog, with 21 Comments

Here are some good pictures of the luncheon yesterday for Eve’s global organization: V-Day: Until The Violence Stops. Eve has written a new play (well, it’s in its third printing as a book after only one week!!!) but will soon be her new play. It’s about girls. I so love what she has written. I so love what this will do for girls…for girls everywhere in the world.…

FRIENDS–NEW AND OLD

Posted on April 17, 2009, in Film, Television & Theater, My Blog, with 22 Comments

Rosario Dawson is coming tonight. She and I both sit on the board of V-Day: Until the Violence Stops, the global effort started by Eve Ensler to end violence against women. I also appeared briefly in the final episode of the telenovella that Rosario did for Vota Latina during this last presidential campaign. It was hillarious and effective. Rosario is a force of nature.…
