It has belatedly occurred to me that not everyone understands what the iHog (aka Fernando von Bakonstein) is about. You people should be ashamed of yourselves. DON’T YOU KNOW WHO HE IS?!? No? Oh. Then click here and here. After a busy Saturday spent sightseeing and hog-nogging with an Oscar nominee, Fernando and I were…
Dr. Melfi, I Presume? Plus iHog New York.
When I learned that Lorraine Bracco, beauteous star of one of my favorite movies AND one of my favorite TV shows, was having a tasting of her own line of wines, Fernando and I jumped in a cab and went to Sherry-Lehman. Lorraine Bracco poured me some Chianti with her very own hands and kindly…
iHog Gets a Haircut (Vicariously)
Fernando came with me to see hairstylist-to-the-stars Keith Carpenter. Having a pig around made us silly. Voila! An even shaggier ‘do. Does it remind you of Shelly Duvall‘s? Just a bit? Keith kept telling me to stop laughing. Do these Versace pants match the lamp growing out of my head? We went to dinner at…

Does Daddy Likey? Plus, Serious Stuff.

MrB gave the keynote speech with Fernando…
The Blair Pig Project and the BBD
Instead of flying back to New York from Paris on Monday, we stopped in Washington, DC, for the annual dinner of the Atlantic Council. Fernando was hoping to see a monument or two, but sightseeing was canceled after the surrender monkeys at Air France temporarily misplaced the luggage, leading to all sorts of logistical problems….
An American Pig in Paris
A few more Paris photos from Fernando von Bakonstein. It was spring… We took some family snapshots… Chillaxed at the hotel… and rode the Metro. “Those Marc Jacobs shoes are fugly,” thought Fernando, “but they do complement my complexion.” Alessandra says that the French are gaga for Castaner espadrilles. The luggage-misplacing surrender monkeys at Air…
Back in New York
I swear to God, this is a picture of Fernando von Bakonstein (pinkish blotch in foreground) and Lauren Bacall (blurry lady in background) at a dinner for the Tribeca Film Festival. I don’t know when I’ve ever seen so many famous people in one place! In addition to Bacall, I ogled Jerry Seinfeld, Larry David,…
