Grey Gardens Premier

Grey Gardens the movie premieres tomorrow on HBO. Sarah Jean first brought the documentary to my attention. At first it seemed like only a sad train wreck account of these women's lives but fascinating all the same. When I watched a second time, these women were endearing, strong, intelligent not just wacky and eccentric. What woman can't on some days relate to the idea of deciding the world is too much anymore and creating your own reality instead? Just all togther quit society. The relationship and frienship of this mother and daughter, it is so touching. Besides, anyone related to Jackie O, I want to know. My weird life long fascination with anything related to the Kennedy clan. Sarah is having people over to watch the premiere. Might attend and may go in costume!

Edith "Little Edie" Bouvier Beale quotes:

"But you see in dealing with me, the relatives didn't know that they were dealing with a staunch character and I tell you if there's anything worse than dealing with a staunch woman... S-T-A-U-N-C-H. There's nothing worse, I'm telling you. They don't weaken, no matter what".

"This is the best thing to wear for today, you understand. Because I don't like women in skirts and the best thing is to wear pantyhose or some pants under a short skirt, I think. Then you have the pants under the skirt and then you can pull the stockings up over the pants underneath the skirt. And you can always take off the skirt and use it as a cape. So I think this is the best costume for today".
