Where were you when you found out
about Diana's death?
“I was at my house in Bridgehampton with my best friend, Mark Morris. I was also in Bridgehampton with Mark Morris the weekend that JFK Jr. died. Isn't that crazy?”

What's your memory of the day Diana died? “I was actually in London. We went to this party — it was supposed to be festive, but it was way ramped down. But nobody wanted to mention the reason! Americans would just dive in with comments. The Brits were just not talking about it. ” —Touré

You're writing a memoir. What don't we know about you? “A lot. Tina was my mentor in publishing. She and Judith Regan both bid for the book, and I went with Tina because she got it.” —Sandra Lee
