I took Sam to the Whitney Museum party for Keith and Kenny that I was hosting. Michel Roux of Absolut Vodka was giving it. Keith asked me what big movie stars I was bringing. He said Nick Rhodes was in town and I don’t know why Nick hasn’t called me. I know he’s been here a while. He’s being distant. Got to the Whitney early, had to do some press. Some museum people were there but Tom Armstrong wasn’t. Later he said he didn’t come down because he was “upstairs hanging Sargents.” Another distant person. And Cornelia was distant, too. And then we went upstairs because it was cooler there. Jane Holzer came around 8:30 and we walked to Mortimer’s and the block was roped off for the party. Peter Allen sang inside but I missed it and later when he asked me if I heard it and I said no, he turned away. Another distant person. If I run into Sylvia Miles and she’s distant, I’ll know I’m really in trouble. Then at 9:15 we left. Jane and I went to La Reserve at 4 West 49th for the dinner that Michel Roux was giving for Keith and Kenny, they’ve both done paintings of the Absolut Vodka bottle. Had fun there.
