My pool in East Hampton is the place to be on a 89 degree day! When I built the pool thirty years ago it was designed to be as chlorine free as possible, with a natural concrete finish-no paint- and it fit in a long narrow space between the house and the property line. I made it extra deep for diving and with no protruding steps so we could really race the length without worrying about obstacles. After all these years, It is a fun place to swim!!!
Cohen also questioned Stewart over her captions and comments, some of which have had to be edited to be a little more G-rated.
She responded, “I’m a funny person. I’m just as funny as you are Andy Cohen. I’ve never been able to have a platform. Now I have Instagram. Can you imagine I have a, I have a platform to be funny on and no, I’m not. I’m not really drinking… you know, because the reason I look so good is I don’t drink very much. I don’t smoke. I don’t stay up late. I, you know, all those, all those bad things.”
“I was supposed to fire the Donald, but then Donald decided he wanted to keep doing ‘The Apprentice’ so that was that,” Stewart recalled.
“We wish you would have,” Cohen joked.
“I just think that Donald is not presidental material,” she added. “I don’t want to bash him or anything, he just stepped into a job he really couldn’t do in the normal way.”
