Houston, Texas – a St. Joseph’s baby.
If you were stranded on a desert island, what three beauty products would you like to have with you?
Chanel Hydra Serum, Chanel Beauty Essence Mist, YSL Black eye liner, Dior lipstick.
I march to my own drummer.
Sweets, an occasional shot of Don Julio Tequila 1942, exotic perfumes and candles.
Believe you can and you will. Follow your zest.
Kiran’s Indian Restaurant, Armando’s and BCN.
Several wonderful events where I am being honored for my commitment to community and the spirit of volunteerism. These include The Blue Cure Foundation Benefit Dinner, the John P. McGovern Museum of Health and Medical Science Gala, and the recipient of the 2016 Impact Award from Volunteer Houston at the Greater Houston Service Awards lunchon.
Hanging out with Lucas and Max, my two adorable terriers. We like to watch old movies. I’m a big movie buff. When I can get tickets, sitting court side at a Houston Rockets game. Enjoying a leisurely brunch or a sunset on an Italian terrace, sipping on a glass of wine and having great conversation.
If I tell you, they won’t be hidden gems anymore!
Morgan Le Fay, Les Habitudes and Saks Fifth Avenue. I like the energy and style of Bethielife.com. 🙂
Spraying a little Chanel Oxygen Water before I put on my makeup. Always be a cream queen. Try not to fall asleep with your makeup on. Most importantly, use your gray matter or shall I say intelligence.
Memories of my son Jake Kenyon. Lucas and Max.
Lake Como, Venice, Italy. I like it because the men really appreciate women and have gioia di vivere. Also, the only spa I really love is at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills.
Acting, doing television interviews – like when I interviewed Olympia Dukakis in 2010 at the “It’s all Greek to me” benefit. To produce more documentaries i.e. “Dorothy Hood The Color of Life” and be a part of productions like Camp Logan. Perform other speaking roles as I did with Ida in “Die Fledermaus” for Opera in the Heights.
The Danish Girl – flawless acting of Eddie Redmayne. They should give the Academy Award to both Eddie and Leonardo. Spotlight with Mark Ruffalo. Also, loved him in The Normal Heart. Maybe I have a crush on him.

I’m over 35.
Sometimes I try on two pairs of shoes and wear an odd match.
