mothers of reinvention event + fundraiser | beverly hills

last tuesday, specific media hired me for a book release event for “the mothers of reinvention” and fundraiser for the step-up women’s network foundation in beverly hills. the authors of the book, jennifer pate and barbara machen are hosts of “jen and barb, mom life,” an award-winning web series with more than 90 webisodes.

from the press release: in the mothers of reinvention: reclaim your identity, unleash your potential, love your life (vanguard press/perseus books group; january 2012; $15.99), jen and barb provide a radical rethinking of what it means to be a woman and a mother in today’s world. a real game-changer that defines new territory for mothers, the mothers of reinvention shares jen and barb’s discovery of a way to reclaim their identity while still maintaining their joy as mothers and wives.

at the event, celebrity chef lulu powers created the food and drink menu. celebrity co-hosts were glee’s jessalyn gilsig and ncis/brothers & sisters’ sarah jane morris. other women celebrities attending were felicity huffman (desperate housewives), jeanne tripplehorn (big love, grey gardens), garcelle beauvais (franklin & bash, models, inc, the groundlings), jennifer freeman (my wife and kids) and sally horchow (author).

a few photos are also featured on, – go check them out! =)

here’s a quick glimpse of the fun and fabulous event:

Gloria Hsu Hi Mimi,

Love your work.

I am planning my son’s first birthday party at my parents’ place in Tustin (12/8). Are you available that day for the party?
