SALLY FIELD’S STAR ON THE HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME

Posted on May 5, 2014, in My Blog, with 31 Comments

This morning I went to Hollywood to speak about Sally at the “star” ceremony for her. In the photo above, I was probably saying something nice about my friend and she, as always, was protesting. I’ve never met a movie star/actor as modest as Sally. I think it was actually challenging for her to show up and “own” the event.…

TWO INTERESTING WEEKS AWAY FROM HOME (INCLUDING PARIS)

Posted on October 16, 2013, in My Blog, with 23 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.…

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.…

AN INTERESTING EVENING AND AFTERNOON

Last night we got all glammed up and went to the Carousel of Hope Ball, a star-studded event that benefits the cause of curing Juvenile Diabetes. Marvin and Barbara Davis began this charity many decades ago and the indefatigable Barbara has continued it since Marvin’s passing. One year it takes place in L.A. and the following year in Denver, where the Davis’s were from.…

LAST WEEK AT THE RANCH FOR AWHILE

Posted on August 21, 2009, in My Blog, with 49 Comments

It’s always hard to leave this place and it’s been especially beautiful these last weeks. We’ve had plenty of rain so it’s very green. One can never use the word ‘lush’ when speaking about the high deserts of the south west but it comes close right now.

Richard’s been here this week and it’s been weird getting emails from our friends and family saying the NY gossip rags say we’re getting married.…

GRANDKIDS ARE HERE!!!

Had a fun time with Sally Field and my Atlanta friends, Helen and Laura. I enjoy the lasting ties I have made with people from Atlanta, which has been my home for only 18 years. Sally and I just soaked each other up-we always have so much catching up to do about our family lives (she is a very involved mother and grandmother) and our acting lives.…

SALLY FIELD

Okay, so James didn’t come last night, but Sally is out there. We’re having dinner afterwards. I can’t wait to get her response to the play. It matters to me (so did Mike Nichols’s). She knows and adores Moises, our writer/director, and was so thrilled for me when I told her I was doing this play. I’m so glad she found time from “Brothers and Sisters” to come here.…
