This week, kids, was all about relationships. Whether or not to throw things in a relationship, when it’s appropriate or not to throw things, who gets to shout in a claustrophobic banquette intervention and who doesn’t. What to do or not say on a date. William Butler Yeats — a cute dead poet who proposed to both his lover and her daughter — said the only things worth writing about are Sex and Death.

I agree. I ran with that, and added love, then spun it into a cute little novel about the three: Death, Sex and Love in that order. Thankfully none of the Housewives are dying, but we are all obsessed about sex. Unless we’re hungover doing Yoga. That’s another thing altogether. I hope my editor didn’t watch this episode, and see how stuck I was days before it was due! Lu is the consummate host and guest, I used more than a little of her advice. I still feel like a great gift for a girl is shoes.

One of the best gifts I ever got was a pair of Candy’s wedges what was the shoe story in the piece Was that a real story, I can’t find it in the drafts I have.

No surprise that negotiations for a television series are already under way; think Sex and the City in black. Although the nine-year marriage lacked passion, Claire finds herself at sea. Charlie has left an unfinished manuscript about a movie star named Jack Huxley, and his agent wants Claire to complete it. Her predictably gay friend, Ethan, sends her to a psychic, who warns her she will not find love for a year.

She meets and flirts with Jack at the opening of one of his films but gets drunk and ends up sleeping with the co-star think Bradley Cooper instead of George Clooney, poor girl. Eventually, she and narcissist Jack do connect and begin an affair of sorts; it is magic when they are together, but they are together only when he calls, which is not often.

Will she grow out of Jack and into someone better? The talented Bennett fuels her fiction with secrets—first in her lauded debut, The Mothers , and now in the assured and magnetic story of the Vignes sisters, light-skinned women parked on opposite sides of the color line.

S6 Episode 11: The Widow’s Guide to Sex and Dating

This weekend, on Friday night, I left a party early in order to come home and read a book written by a Real Housewife of New York. Clearly, Radziwill is the writer of the group. I am not a fan of the Real Housewives franchise. I have seen one or two episodes of the one based in Atlanta and one episode of the one based in New York. The front cover blurb, by Candace Bushnell, is predictable and unimpressive.

Carole Radziwill has gone from Emmy-award winning journalist to “Real Housewife of New York City” on the reality show of the same name.

The Widow’s Guide to Sex and Dating

I think Carole Radziwill’s real talent lies in non-fiction. This was an entertaining read, which is, I realize, damning with faint praise. I’d hoped for more. Quick read in the category of “beach read”. Nothing in this book stands out, plot is predictable, characters one-dimensional, ending disappointing.
