Our friend and one-time columnist Susan Silver was at the talk and book-signing on Tuesday night at Christie’s. She wrote me about it yesterday morning, still swooning. I asked her if she’d share the moment with us and she was happy to.
Well, it’s been a while since my “Search for Mr. Adequate” in the New York Social Diary. Alas, I hadn’t found him … until Tuesday night. So I thought I’d let you know first. Unfortunately, he is taken … by a lovely lady. He is not a prince, but is a Lord! Which is good enough … definitely more than Adequate!
I went to a book signing and lecture by Lord Charles Spencer, from one of the great aristocratic families in England … and, oh yeah, brother of the late Princess Di.
He is charming, handsome, very accomplished … historian, journalist. Written five books. But when we were introduced, by his PR Maven Judy Twersky, who was kind enough to give my Mary Tyler Moore Show credit (ed. note: Susan was one of the original writers of “Mary …”) Lord Charles was eager to tell me he watches all the reruns when in his home in Pacific Palisades, when he is not at Althorp, the family ancestral home. We ‘bonded,’ she said blushing.
What a treat to meet him and when his wife Karen told me they actually had been fixed up on a blind date, four years ago … well it should only happen to me! Off to read the book now.
