Ali Wentworth proved she is a lot funnier than her husband, George Stephanopoulos, at Audrey Gruss’ Hope for Depression luncheon at the Plaza.
The actress/author and mother of two told guests such as Dr. Samantha Boardman, Hilary Geary Ross, Jay McInerney and Jean Shafiroff about a recent poll in which the majority of respondents said they would rather give up sex than their phones.
“I was astounded,” Wentworth said. “It might be that you’re having bad sex. I don’t judge but . . . no phones in my house.”
Wentworth also joked that she named her “third baby” Zoloft — “it sounds Greek” — and how her mother Muffie Cabot, who was Nancy Reagan’s White House social secretary, doesn’t believe in therapy.
“My mother just says when you get depressed, close your eyes and think about Christmas,” she said. “I called my mother up, and I said, ‘Is there any depression in our family?’ and she said, ‘Nope, nope, no depression, not at all.’ I said, ‘All four of my grandparents killed themselves — that’s depression’ . . . Meanwhile . . . my husband and I and our kids are on Zoloft and are all in therapy 24 hours a day because I am a big believer in it.”
