The Vast Right-Wing Con-Seipp-acy
There are frequent complaints about an alleged "vast right-wing conspiracy" in the LA Press Club. Sadly, the entire vast right wing seems to be comprised of one person: my friend Cathy Seipp. As Emmanuelle Richard and I are Cathy's monthly cohostesses for book parties, we are frequently lumped in as fellow vast right-wing conspirators -- despite the fact that we cheerfully consider Cathy politically, well, wrong!

Likewise, although Cathy says she doesn't remember this, she once referred to me (politically speaking) as "a wingnut." Despite our political differences, we always manage to find fun common ground -- hence, this month's writergirl breakfast at Hugo's (a restaurant my boyfriend likes to refer to as "Homo's" due to its smack-dab-in-West-Hollywood location).

Here's Cathy (with Harlow-hair), dangerously close to self-proclaimed liberals (novelist Ellen Slezak across the table from her), and liberaltarians (me, not pictured), and an emissary from afar: charming, raspberry-shirted Swiss journo Claudia Laffranchi. Heather King (in the back on the left) and Kerry Madden-Lunsford (back right) were undeclared at breakfast, but I'd guess they aren't exactly crowding Cathy's vast, one-woman right wing.

Politics as usual. Guess which person whose last name is Seipp put her .02 in in the form of two crossed fingers?

Two questions:

1. Which of these ladies are single?

2. Do they like guys with fake hair colors?

Kerry is married. And I think you should say "hair the color of a fresh Slurpee," but that's just me.

Ladies? Luke's looking!

Just for the record, I did get my roots done that very afternoon.
