Where were you born? New York City.
Where do you currently live? Manhattan in Turtle Bay, I spend time in Paris as well.
What do you look forward to? I look forward to working more and enjoying the ever-changing world. I am very optimistic that it will be fine. I think there is a very exciting future and that is what I think of. I’m looking forward to the changes and I embrace them all.
Who is the most interesting person that you have met? I think it was when I was in the media business and that was Helen Gurley Brown, the Editor-in-Chief of Cosmopolitan magazine. I worked with her for many years and for me she was a most exciting woman. She understood what women were and who they wanted to be. She wrote “Sex and the Single Girl” in an era when it was very shocking to do so. She was very liberated. I admired her way of thinking. I was the director of beauty, fashion and advertising at Cosmopolitan.
What do you do? I still study singing and I do perform in musical concerts, I go to the theatre a lot and the museums. I have lots of friends and I travel a lot. I just never stop. I read. I think that’s why I want to be a part of the future. I am very active and I enjoy my family.
Why do you live in New York, what do you love about it? I like the vibrancy of it. The vibrancy, the colour, the differences you see here. There are so many different people, fashions, and places to visit. I love the pulse of this wonderful city.
What is your best advice for the future? To be optimistic, join in, don’t be negative, be positive in everything that you can and it will come your way and work out.
How old are you? 80. I enjoy myself so much I don’t even feel I’ve aged. In fact last night I was out at the opera until very late with my son.
