Ask Babe: I Am My Own Mom

Hi Babe,

Just read your book, and I absolutely loved it. Couldn’t put it down and ended up reading it in one day. Is this your actual life, or is your book an exaggerated retelling of your life story? Either way it was fabulous, and so are you!




Curious Georgina,

The book is me and I am the book. Writing my life’s sory over the course of a few days at rehab was maybe the most exhilarating experience I’ve ever had. Well, after the time Kate Moss asked me to light her cigarette at Silencio, then when we both realized that her cig was backwards and I was lighting the filter, she laughed, touched my shoulder, and walked away. But seriously, writing those words down, the stories that appear in my book, was like giving birth to myself, raising myself, and then sending myself out into the real world.

If your life ever decides to get really interesting, I suggest that you go to rehab and write your own best-selling memoir. If nothing else, it’ll get your dad off your back for at least a year.
