The first commercial for Newlyweds: The First Year debuted tonight on Bravo! See it here.
Long-time readers have noticed that I’ve been scaling back on the personal posts this year. It’s literally been the best year of my entire life, but I haven’t posted about it very much–no wedding photos!–which is SO not me.
Now, after months of being coy and hinting at exciting news to come, I can finally reveal the reason for the aloofness:
Erik and I have been filming a reality TV show for Bravo!
Good news: I have been rocking the Wisteria writing recently. My completed draft is due in a few months and I’m making mega progress.
Bad news: I haven’t had enough time to write here. I’m waving the white flag and carving out 10 minutes to do a post about the lack of posting. Meta, no?
So, here are the highlights…
I signed my book contract today: I’m officially a member of the HarperCollins family again!
It’s funny how dreams rarely manifest the way you initially envisioned them. After publishing my second book Confessions of a Beauty Addict in 2009, I spent YEARS working on a few different manuscripts. My first stab was a book called The Glossy Posse (which later evolved into a work called Clementine and Olivia), about two half-sisters (one in Palm Beach, one in London) who meet for the first time after their wealthy English father dies. Since I was fresh off the polo circuit, naturally it featured lots of horses, Hooray Harrys for days, a fair share of entitled billionaires, stately homes that make the one on Downton Abbey look small, and alcoholics aplenty. (I was going through a big Jilly Cooper phase.)
