DEAR TREASURED COMMENTATORS FOR DEAR JACKIE,

We now have a newer and sexier domain name: dearjackie.net

It was just such a mouthful to say the entire dearjackiecollins.blogspot.com don't you think?

Here at Dear Jackie, things should be smooth and sexy- as easy as slipping into something more comfortable like silky lingerie.

Unfortunately for now, this means we have lost your thoughtful comments. So sorry. But not to worry! The comments are temporarily trapped in the ether of the interweb universe and will soon find their way back to the posts. Promise!

We love your comments and we miss your comments. Meantime, sit back, have a dry martini, and think of something fabulous to say.

Will be waiting for you.

ORIANA FOX IS WORKING OUT WITH MR. LET'S PAINT


Dear Jackie,

Have you been watching Let's Paint TV? The most recent episode is very exciting because guest star Oriana Fox is Multitasking with Mr. Let's Paint. Oriana and Mr. Paint are great multitaskers. They are making BBQ, playing badminton, and working on beautiful paintings of psychedelic mushrooms while get'n fit on the treadmill. Can you believe that the hot-dogs ended up on the ground? That was such a powerful moment. Good thing there were two hot-dogs left- I just love to eat while get'n fit.

I like to multitask too. Like, I'm writing this letter to you, ya? Well I'm also getting a pedicure, drinking a dry martini, talking on the phone (to BFF Dawn), and flipping through the latest edition of Vague- all while wearing my super trendy custom t shirt from Mr. Let's Paint. I am inspired.

A celebrity top-secret tip for getting in shape fast: do your butt crunches while sitting in the salon chair. Don't knock the odd multitasking regiment!

Embrace Failure While Get'n Fit!

SUNDAY WORK AROUND THE HOUSE

Dear Jackie,

What a lovely weekend. Friday and Saturday I spent at fabulous parties and soirees, but today I decided to stay at home and do some work around the house. A bit of gardening and systematizing my ivory cutlery etc. I also decided to build a new wing to my house to to fit my new gym, so I asked Roberto to come over- he did a great job.
You should come over and try my Cross-trainer, it works magic on the calf muscles. So does Roberto,

NO PAIN NO GAIN!!

Dear Jackie,

Have you been doing your 10 minute daily exercises?

I was feeling a little sluggish, bored, and plain old tiresome when I realized it had been almost one whole week since I did my daily work out regiment. So I busted out the old leg warmers and I popped in my favorite Jane Fonda VHS to make up for lost time.

Don't stop til you drop! No pain no gain!!




p.s. I have found that its very helpful to listen to some upbeat music while doing the daily regiment. I personally like Soft Cell's Sex Dwarf.

CLASSY

Dear Jackie,

You looked fabulous at the book launch of 'Classy' last night darling. Obviously Derek Blasberg had you in mind when writing his book "Classy: Exceptional Advice For the Extremely Modern Lady." Everyone knows that you invented the term Classy! And that you are an Extremely Modern Lady!
I also had a chat with Barneys' creative director (and author, and TV personality) Simon Doonan at the party who said : "I told Derek to channel Jackie Collins - Just sit behind that desk, sign copies of the book, and channel Jackie Collins."
Very wise words from him....

NICOLE KIDMAN, JOAQUIN PHOENIX, CASEY AFFLECK, TROUBLED YOUTH



Dear Jackie,

Latest on the Joaquin Phoenix front is that he has officially given up his hobo rapper career and has gone to take his dogs for a walk, so to speak.

Did I ever mention that back in high-school Joaquin and I were chums? He always got into trouble for putting his chewing gum underneath the desk.

Yours truly,
Troubled Youth

JOAN RIVERS IS A PIECE OF WORK

Dear Jackie,

Remember when Joan Rivers appeared in your adaptation of Lady Boss where she is discussing "the environment" while having a three-martini lunch, and Donald Trump interrupts to ask "What are you two cooking up"? I just love the way her white fingernails match her pearly whites and her pearly jewelry. Its like pearl heaven! Do you think they're real?




Joan is the ultimate snarky bitch and she has been playing that game for 75 years. Someone made a tribute to her and its about time. Lets call it- A Piece of Work. When it comes to a theater nearby, Jackie, want to go see it with me?

SUNDAY BEST

HOROSCOPE for May 2, 2010 - Very sensual, you'll know how to take full advantage of torrid nights. If you're lonely, you'll feel like indulging in amorous adventures without restraint. Risks of sexually transmitted diseases will be on the increase. Think of organizing your succession in the most advantageous way, even if this seems very premature to you. Sparkling life with your friends. The climate in your family will be serene and warm; you'll get along marvelously with your children, who'll show themselves more affectionate and will behave themselves better than usual.
