Tell us about the first time you met Andy Warhol.
I met Andy in 1971 at my home in Rockville Centre, New York. At the time, my brother, Bob, was writing for Andy's film magazine Interview. Andy and his entourage stopped by our house on the way to his Montauk, Long Island, compound. The whole time, he flirted with my boyfriend Larry, who had a Brando/James Dean thing going on. But I remember everyone sitting on the patio outside, and Bob got me to entertain them with a bunch of stories. Andy thought I was so funny.
Who was your favorite person to see in the Factory?
I loved the people I worked with and saw every day-each unique and funny. But when Fran Lebowitz (author, social commentator) came to the office to deliver her monthly column, it was the best. Fran has been described as the modern-day Dorothy Parker. Definitely read Metropolitan Life and Social Studies.
