The View from Behind the Chair: Truth and Consequences
In this edition: rebounding with a vengeance… woe and worry… and a heads-up for your Halloween hijinks
The View from the Behind the Chair is the only place you'll hear the secrets people share when they're in the chair.
In the first chair, a shopgirl with luscious locks tells me a recently dumped doyenne is putting the "vamp" in revamping her wardrobe. When her ex sees her new look, he may have second thoughts about that nubile naif who turned his head, but all the signs say it's too late for that lothario.
Stay on your toes, boys. There's a new femme fatale in town, and she's on the prowl for fresh prey.
In the second chair, one of the ladies who lunch said she and her gal pals are reeling from the sudden loss of one of their own last night. The late lady in question apparently had her share of frenemies and maybe a secret or two that might shock Oxonians, including her high-powered hubby, who could lose more than just face if the hush-hush info comes to light.
With the hunt for the killer in full swing, there are more than a few nervous Nellies wondering if and when detectives might show up on their doorsteps.
And in the third chair, a well-coiffed woman in the know about all things law enforcement on campus and off confided that officers will be out in force tonight with ticket books and handcuffs at the ready to protect trick-or-treaters young and old from over-indulgers.
So if you're out and about tonight, the smart money says designate a driver or call a rideshare or taxi.
I'm just hearing, and I'm just saying.
