The School of Flaunt

Back when "Flying Was Fun" Alexandra Smythe and Cate Clarke were Flight Attendants with a Major International Carrier. Prior to Private Jets coming into vogue, Alexandra and Cate traveled in the First Class World, meeting and greeting the top celebrities, politicians who would become Presidents, nouveau riche, and yes the occasional Headline Grabbing Criminal in Handcuffs!

What the two ladies viewed and experienced became fodder for the School of Flaunt, so much money, such bad taste and oh those terrible manners. Something had to be done! Hence, The School of Flaunt Handbook was born. Read More

Mummy Takes On Reality TV!

Mummy Takes on Reality TV

Well, I would have never thought that my mother, all 82 years of her could be bitten by the Hollywood Bug, but it might just have happened. I recently got a call that the old girl was in LA and seeing some friends. Harmless enough, I thought. WRONG!

The jist of what was going on was not mere sightseeing and parties, Mummy was being courted by a Reality TV company. This could not be good!

Mummy has no idea what Reality TV is in America: Tacky pickers, Ghost Chasers, Bachelors and Bachelorettes and possibly the worst, The Kardashians. No, on second thought it has to be the Jersey Shore crowd!

My mind was spinning as I ran out the door to catch the first flight to CA! The last thing my husband heard was me begging Mummy, "Do not sign anything." OMG what I found when I landed was priceless.

Apparently my mother was being wined and dined, something she takes to like fish to water! The Reality folk were shall I say a bit over the top? Telling Mummy how gorgeous she was and how much they wanted to film her antics in the US and UK! Lots of eye batting on her part, remember she just had another face lift!

Mummy: They want to film our Hunt! I do ride well, you know!

Me: That is the last thing you want is your bum plastered all over England jumping fences! Daddy will have a stroke and the Hunt Club will have no part of it.

Not to be deterred, she went on.

Mummy: Well, at the very least they can film me going to Las Vegas and playing Black Jack! You know Evelyn, (Mum's BFF and personal maid), is dying to go to The Wynn!

Me: I will take you, darling. We do not need a film crew!! And besides, you know nothing of gambling, or Black Jack! I hate to be a bearer of bad news but you know that HRH will drop you like a hot potato if you appear on Reality TV!!

Mummy: Hmmm, you might be right on that Cate. You might be right.

Me: I know I am right and who would you ride and picnic with at Balmoral? Think what would be said in The Tattler? Shameful, that.

Mummy: I did so like to move around in an entourage. Oh well. Let's go down to Newport Beach! I will make reservations at that new resort, Alexandra recommended it. What was it called, oh yes, Pelican Hill, and the restaurant was Andrea. She said they served lovely pasta and it had a flaunt fabulous view, as the two of you like to say!

So we are now flying down the 405 to Newport Beach, Ca. Ever the good sport with ADHD, Mummy has given up all thoughts of life as a Reality TV Star. Wait, she is on her cell, texting an Old Flame!! She ran into him on FaceBook and he wants to take us all to dinner!!!?

Mummy: Cate you are on FACEBOOK?

Me: Yes Mummy, Alexandra and I are both on Facebook.

Mummy: Maybe I will "friend" you.
