Going Away Party for Martha, first come, first served!

Oh, I just heard the awful news! Anyway, Ina Garten just called me and she's throwing a going away surprise/tearful farewell bash for Martha at the Barefoot Contessa on Sunday. So, I can bring 10 of my closest friends. I obviously have some tickets reserved for my special buddies here, but who else wants to come?? Hon, if you know Ina, you know two things: sinfully rich meals, and lots and lots of booze. It'll be a blast!

Hel take me please! I don't have the Emmys to do on TV and if I don't go to this thing, I will be alone at home throwing ice cream at the screen whenever Star Jones comes on!

Can we talk?!

Joan, you're one of my special guests who's not part of the other 10 extra tickets I got. Don't worry, when you've won an Oscar, you can basically get any number of tickets you want. Plus, I gave to Ina Floyd's mother's fried chicken recipe so she owes me.

Oddly enough, I heard that Martha's working on a new shade of prison orange. Something a bit more Fallish, like oh say, to blend in with her New England Fall changing of the leaves (I meant guards *cough*) colors.

I'd like to go, if Angelina Jolie's going to be there.

I'm BACK & SINGLE. So lock up all the hotties!

Don't forget Hel, if I get in.... I'll bring plenty of the yellow ones with me. As the more yellow ones I have, and run the risk of seeing Angelina the more you have a major story on your hands. Joan can't miss out on reporting about this... it would deserve to be on TV Guide Channel, DAMMIT!!!

Hello all. This is my farewell to all of you who won't be attending the party at Ina's. I'm going away for a while to serve out my time so am canceling my wtaworld account immediately. Wish me luck!

It's a good thing

Ina is one class act and damn that broad knows how to mix booze and food......I did not know they were so close though. I had Martha really did not associate with too many of her Food Network counterparts but I guess as usual I bought into rumors.

Jakeev, Ina did a lot of articles in Martha Stewart Living before she hit the dizzying heights of superstardom with her own show on the Food Network, though some still refer to her as the "poor man's Martha Stewart." Basically it was a Margot Channing/Eve Harrington scenario, only Ina is really nice and Martha was glad to help. They know each other socially at this point, but they are on good terms, obviously Ina is throwing her this party.

Ina is Martha Stewart minus the evil and about a billion dollars. Actually I like Martha. I can't go to the big party due to scheduling conflicts but send my regards!

Will do, Sal. That's a really good description of Ina. Like, I think Ina would be friends with me even if I was a nobody. Martha wouldn't be caught dead with me if I was a nobody. You really nailed it, Sal!
