Her singing has a husky note that fits the rough-edged glamour gal Roxie...Brinkley brings this merrily morbid story of fame and mayhem in the Windy City a presence like a summer sunbeam ...plus a game-for-anything streak of moxie. Her disarming charm works its way into her acting technique." While Broadway World.com praises… "Brinkley is still beautiful and is a strong presence on stage. She fits the look of Roxie who is a wannabe glamour girl from the chorus. Brinkley brings a charm to the part that makes Roxie seem more ditzy than coldly calculating.

All of the other things I do in my life are important but never as important as my being there for my children.

I hope to share with you my “favorites” from recipes to travel to good old fashioned advice. Of course we will have our monthly celebrity Mom and take a peak into how she manages to do it all…..or does she? It is hard to do it all, as we well know but somehow it manages to get done!

It was "Conversation and Cocktails" as the glitteri of society gathered for a cocktail reception presented by Old Fashioned Mom Magazine Editor and Chief Michelle-Marie Heinemann and Sheela Murty Of Traum Safes, a the World Leader in Exquisite high security to welcome Jacque Bounin from Le Rosey....the most prestigious boarding School in the World!!


Owner Sheela Murty reveals "Twenty-five years ago I founded Traum Safe with the mission to revolutionize how affluent families looked after their jewelry. Today we are the leader in luxury home safes. People always ask how a girl who grew up in a small town in India and earned a Ph.D. (summa cum laude) in Biochemistry at age twenty-four from the Freie Universitaet, Berlin, ended up founding Traum Safe. Well, it is about a day that altered the course of my life.

I was a college student doing the typical continental tour with my best friends in my beat up old Audi. We had just tallied up and my friends had handed me cash for all the group expenses I had paid for. Unbeknownst to us, we had been watched. We then visited the beautiful Salzburg Dom Cathedral, where my purse was stolen right from the pews. The thieves were after the cash, but what they got was my great-great-grandmother's diamond earrings. I had just turned 21 and my grandmother sent me her grandmother's earrings as a present. Too late to take it to the bank locker, unwilling to leave it in my college dorm room in Berlin, I had it in the bottom of my purse the whole trip! Years later when I came to the US, the land of opportunities, I moved from pharmaceutical science to pursue my passion. I wanted to make sure no one else experienced that sense of loss and violation that I felt on the balmy summer afternoon in Salzburg. So much has changed in 25 years. Remember when apple was just a fruit we bit into? When blogs, apps and texting did not exist in our vocabulary? When children wrote cute letters to their grandparents? And yet so little has changed. The fundamental principle that my business was founded on remains steady. Affluent families value their treasures and want to both protect and rejoice in them. They want the luxury of privacy and peace of mind.

Over the years I am very proud that we not only look after the fabulous collections of our clientele but also their trust. As I look to the next 25 years, we will continue to build on our strengths of innovation and state-of-the-art technology combined with the solid old-fashioned values of integrity and discretion."

Annabel Revers Wins Great Southwest Equestrian Center Equitation Championship at the Hampton Classic

Brooke Shields poses for a photo-op at the Hampton Classic on 

Grand Prix Sunday


TV Host Cognac Wellerlane interviews Equestrian Georgina Bloomberg at the Resident Magazine Cover Party before The Hampton Classic Grand Prix Sunday

Following two rounds of competition Saturday at the Hampton Classic, Annabel Revers of Weston, MA, came out on top in the $10,000 Great Southwest Equestrian Center Equitation Championship.


evers received a first-round score of 86 and a second-round score of 97, (from which three points were deducted for time penalties) to finish with an overall total of 180 points. Second place was awarded to Madison Goetzmann of Skaneatles, NY, with a final total of 171.5, and third went to Jordyn Rose Freedman of Longmeadow, MA, just a half point behind with 171.0.


Returning in reverse order of standing following the morning's first round of competition, Revers had the good fortune of riding second-to-last and was able to watch the rest of the riders tackle the course before her turn in the ring.


"After watching the first riders go, we knew the time would be tight so we talked about keeping a really good pace, and not taking too much time around the turns," said Revers. "You had to ride the lines very accurately and you couldn't make up the time in the lines so you had to focus on the turns."


Revers, who is trained by Stacia Madden and has recently started working with Max Amaya, emphasized the plan for the second round was to ride through any mistakes.


"The biggest thing Max emphasized was if we had a small mistake to keep going," explained Revers. "It was a tough course and it would be impossible to do absolutely flawlessly. If something happened you'd just have to keep going and do the best you can. My horse has a very nice canter, he goes at a more forward pace than some others. He's a great jumper - very brave, which was definitely very important jumping onto the bank. The early riders had rails, time faults and refusals. It just emphasized you just had to ride the course; don't worry about making it smooth or look beautiful, just ride the course and get the job done."


Amaya's wisdom comes from experience: "My advice for the second round was stick to the plan, follow every single instinct, but don't overreact. Don't overcorrect. Let the horse jump. Give him a little space, but don't overthink this course."


The $15,000 Carolex Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper Classic was won by Friday's Junior Jumper winner, Daisy Farish with Alberto II. Jordyn Rose Freedman was second with Feeling, and Philip Richter was third with Pistoya.

The $10,000 Amateur-Owner Jumper Classic was won by Katie Tyler, riding Surf de la Cense owned by Barbara Kipihasha. Tyler received the Firefly Trophy, donated by Philip Richter of Turnabout Farm in honor of Christophe de Menil, for the win. Second went to Jazz Johnson Merton with Caliber 9, and third went to Brooke Gunther with Wilford 2.


The Gochman sisters continued their winning ways, taking first and second in the $10,000 Junior Jumper Classic Saturday morning. Mimi took top honors with Avoloma BH while Sophie took second with Carola BH. Coco Fath finished third with Cohbanta.


In the $5,000 Adult Jumper Classic, Lindsey Tomeu took the win with Gold Lux, Sarah Gordon on Bonitha was second and third went to Deborah Perkins with Emerald Grace.


In the $5,000 Children's Jumper Classic, sponsored by the Swan Creek Family Corporation, Hallie Grimes finished on top with Alasca LV Z followed by Sophia Pilla and Betty Boop III in second, and Charlotte Currey with Califa in third.

In the Anne Aspinall hunter ring, Becky Gochman took the championship in the Hunt Ltd. Amateur Owner 36+ hunters, with John Ingram taking the reserve with Cuba.


Gochman, whose teenage daughters were also extremely successful this week at the Classic, admits to "being pretty busy" at the Classic, but having a good time fitting in some riding herself.


"This horse, Catch Me, is amazing," said Gochman. "I call him my magic unicorn. We weren't quite in sync with each other Friday - this is my first time taking him on the grass and I was a little nervous. He is very sensitive so he picked up on that. We were able to make a full comeback today and I'm very proud of him. Our team is amazing and I'm filled with gratitude. Just to ride on this classic green ring of the Hampton Classic - anything that happens is icing on the cake. This is the most beautiful horse show in the country."


Standouts in this very competitive division, Ingram was equally as proud of Cuba, who comes to the Classic having just won the 2017 USHJA International Hunter Derby in Lexington in August.


"Becky rode beautifully and Catch Me was awesome today," said Ingram. "There's no shame in being second with a 90! My mother-in-law, Agneta Currey, is one of the founders of the show, so we make a point of getting up here each year. It's incredibly special. It's a beautiful grass ring, we don't get to ride in many of those anymore. They make a real effort here to make this show lovely and special. It's a great way to wrap up the summer season."


In the GiGi New York Amateur-Owner Hunters, 18-35 years, Peter Lutz and Chablis were awarded the championship, with reserve going to Nikki Diamantis with Cascina.


The Grand Champion Junior Hunter was awarded to Mythical, owned by Gochman Sport Horses and ridden by Sophie Gochman.


Sunday, September 3 is Grand Prix Sunday at the Hampton Classic. The $10,000 Hermès Hunter Classic is the featured competition in the Anne Aspinall ring. Festivities in the Grand Prix Ring begin with the $25,000 Jumping Derby followed by the grand finale -the $300,000 Hampton Classic Grand Prix CSI**** Presented by SOVARO®.
