Okay, this is a kick.Â I just ran across this article in the UK newspaper, The Evening Standard.Â It’s an interview with Elizabeth Hurley:Â
Â QUEEN OF THE JET SET
It is typical of Elizabeth Hurley’s time management skills that in the week before her English wedding at Sudeley Castle to Indian businessman Arun Nayar – between meetings with her party organiser Peregrine Armstrong-Jones, florist Robert Van Helden and caterer Rhubarb – she set up a giant draughtsman’s easel in her son Damian’s basement nursery to do her placement with Day-Glo Post-Its. As she pondered on whom to sit next to Sir Elton John, Leonard and Evelyn Lauder, Valentino and Prince Pavlos of Greece…Â Â
Guests (at the wedding) included Tom Ford, David Furnish, Leonard and Evelyn Lauder, Trinny Woodall, Tim Jefferies, Imran Khan, India Hicks, various Bollywood stars, Big Brother winner Shilpa Shetty and several Indian tycoons such as billionaire Vijay Mallya, known as the ‘King of Good Times’…
Now that Elizabeth and Arun are married, travel will doubtless continue to play an important part in their lives. They are currently ‘arguing’ about whether they should buy a holiday home that is a ‘hot house’ (ie, a beach house in somewhere like Mustique) or a ‘cold house’ (ie, a chalet in St Moritz).
Lying on a private beach in the Maldives or the Caribbean is definitely something Elizabeth has long enjoyed.Â
‘I can let him play all day while I am under a palm tree reading a Tess Gerritsen novel. I only read horrid, American crime novels at the moment.’
Wow.Â Elizabeth Hurley reads me!Â Maybe I can’t hang out on a beach in the Maldives, but my books do.
