Bob Rubin's Daughter-In-Law Hates Showers, Is Good In Bed

Bobby Rubin's D-in-L, Gretchen Rubin, recently wrote a book called "The Happiness Project," to deal with her "midlife malaise and help others smile more often." Haven't read it, but it's apparently a best-seller and girlfriend seems pretty chipper so presumably it works. One person she's probably keeping very happy is her husband, Jamie, a senior partner at the private-equity firm BC Partners. Not only because she stinks (some people are into that) but because, in Gretch's opinion, she's a fantastic lay.

Rubin is a slender fast-talker who, in the book, describes herself as humorless and ambitious. Among her dislikes, she writes, are talking on the telephone and taking showers. Rubin, who wrote a "Happiness Project" blog while working on the book, said she's behaving better these days. She relaxes by jumping up and down in her apartment ("my children laugh hysterically") and participating in book groups she started that read children's literature. "The Happiness Project" includes 29 pages about money, including the observation that money, used wisely, can help buy happiness. She said seeing a physical therapist who eased her back pain was money well spent. "Whether rich or poor, people make choices about how they spend money, and those choices can boost happiness or undermine it," she wrote.
But there's nothing in the book about sex.
"I only talk about the things that I had to work on," Rubin said.

If you know what she means and I think you do.

Bob Diamond's Daughter Releases Statement Re: Father's Firing

While most offspring are typically not available for comment following the resignations, voluntary or otherwise, of their banker dads (lookin' at you, Jimmy Cayne, Jr.), earlier today prolific Tweeter Nell Diamond had this to say to the Brits who have been cheering her father's departure: "George Osborne and Ed Miliband you can go ahead and #HMD." Unfortunately the note has since been deleted (and replaced with "No one in the world I admire more than my dad. 16yrs building Barclays. Shame to see the mistakes of few tarnish the hard work of so many") but the vigorous defense was appreciated nonetheless. Previously Nell, a 2011 Princeton graduate, has had words for Ben Bernanke ("you know what bernanke? maybe tomorrow I will make lots of "projections" and YOU will miss the dumpling truck. how ya like them apples B?"), the slag heaps at Coachella ("every girl at coachella looks like pocahontas went to burning man. ugh. you probably can't even pronounce rodarte"), and the amateur hour fucks who think her name is Neil and who she should stab with a trident ("number of people who have called me neil today: 4 via email, 1 via phone. number of people to add to my billy madison lipstick kill list: 5.").
