If there is a straight and sometimes-high-five-throwing male out there who can claim more influence on their life from Helen Gurley Brown, I'd love to meet him. Until then I'm proclaiming myself as her absolute number one fan.
I am read and listened to and this is a pleasure, but I would never have had this opportunity without first having been a Cosmo Girl for the late and charming Helen Gurley Brown, who created part of my arsenal of experiences from which I draw upon to write.
To proclaim to be a "Cosmo girl" nowadays is to have the world look at you with a half-smirk and assume your literary knowledge is limited to romance novels. You're just that: A girl, not a woman.
But that wasn't always the case.
Spending another night on another red carpet with Food Network's "Bad Boy Chef" Chris Nirschel, lead to some very interesting encounters with other reality TV stars at the Cosmopolitan magazine's launch party for their February issue at the Empire Room in NYC on Wednesday night.
