My DebutAunt Ball!
As you may recall, a DebutAunt is what we call a first time aunt. So when it came time for a party to celebrate the release of my first book: Savvy Auntie: The Ultimate Guide for Cool Aunts, Great-Aunts, Godmothers and All Women Who Love Kids (Morrow/HarperCollins), I couldn't think of a more appropriate name to call it than The DebutAunt Ball!
Held at Pranna in New York City, hosted by The Blaq Group and sponsored by PepsiCo WIN, the event attracted some of New York City's most influential women and men, including Bravo Real Housewives of New York City, Jill Zarin and Sonja Morgan; TLC's What Not To Wear's celebrity hair stylist Ted Gibson and his husband, celebrity colorist Jason Backe; anti-aging guru and bestselling author, Dr. Nicholas Perricone; Oxygen's Bad Girl's Club's Wilmarie; New York's WPIX on-air personality Tamsen Fadal; and Tad Wilson and Jessica Phillips, currently starring on Broadway in Priscilla Queen of the Dessert.
