An exclusive book signing party was held on Miami Beach to introduce Jill Kargman’s memoire “Sometimes I Feel Like A Nut” before an exclusive crowd of VIPs. The party was hosted by Jennifer Sazant, Hollen Rosenberg, Jillian Jacobson, Kristin Pierce, Elizabeth Dascal (and me too) in the gorgeous penthouse of the Sagamore Hotel in Miami. A gorgeous sunset provided a picturesque background for the fashionable crowd on the outdoor terrace. Upon arrival, guests were given mini “Groucho Marx” disguises as an homage to the book cover and Moet Chandon champagne!
I was able to read the book before Kargman even got here. I was laughing out loud from the first page. This memoire is a style departure from Kargman’s best-selling chick-lit novels, which include “Momzillas” and “The Ex-Mrs. Hedgefund.” There you got a glimpse of her tongue-in-cheek humor. This book is all out hilarious, with relatable observations in keeping with Woody Allen’s magical equation that ‘tragedy plus time equals comedy’. Kargman knows a thing or two about both comedy and tragedy, triumphantly beating cancer at the age of 35 and crediting her nuttiness as one coping mechanism that helped her and her family deal with the situation. That chapter’s title? Tumor Humor. Need I say more?
Guests took home signed copies of the book as well as Urban Decay make up goodies. Guests included Alison Zhuk, Alli Feldman, Brooke Gallo, Cindy Dana, Dana Shear, David Haller, Dr. Debora Duro, personal stylist Elysze Held, Erika Thomas, Kevin Gray, Johanna Erlebach, Joey Krutel, handbag designer Laura Buccellatti, Luli Lameran, Hello Campos, Michelle Berlowitz, Nancy Karp, Odi Zidon, Rachel Appel, Ryan Federer, Tamar Oppenheimer, Tara Elias Schuchts, Vivian Gomez, among others.
