Marci’s Hollywood Hotline

By Marci Weiner


Billionaire David Murdock’s elegant and private Regency Club in Westwood was the perfect venue for the A-List book party for First Person Cat. Where else but in Beverly Hills can a tortoise shell Persian cat (who wears a diamond necklace from David Webb) be feted for solving a murder mystery? Yes folks, Tiffany, the alter ego of author Jacque Heebner, proves she is not only an intuitive kitty, but a talented and witty writer.

Famed jeweler, Kevin Parker, Vice President of David Webb (who creates fabulous animal inspired jewels) hosted a dazzling soiree, where the likes of such guests as Roger Williams, Lou and Carla Ferrigno and Spago’s Barbara Lazaroff feasted on champagne & caviar, and an array of baby lollypop lamb chops, coconut shrimp & other delectable hors d’oeuvres.

Queen of the Big Cats, Tippi Hedren (The Birds) who owns and operates Shambala – a refuge for really Big cats – was in attendance, and agreed that “the magnificent Tiffany is very cleaver in solving the crime” and was impressed by the cast of celebrity characters in the tome.

The Ferrigno’s who are in fabulous shape, are excited about their upcoming Reality Show. This series should be called, Ferrigno’s Family Fitness –as the entire Ferrigno brood is not fitness buffs themselves, but trainers to boot!

World-renowned pop concert pianist, gold & platinum recording artist Roger Williams, who is a special friend of Jacque, is soon off for a worldwide concert tour. Williams, like me, is really a dog person – but after reading the adventures of Tiffany, in First Person Cat, I have a newfound appreciation and respect for our feline friends.
