It is with the heaviest heart and deepest sadness I am writing this tribute to my dearest and longtime friend and mentor, Molly Molloy. A women who changed not only my life, but helped, taught and inspired so many through dance. Not long ago I was with her at the hospital, talking about our lives together, and trying as best I could, along with her son Matt, to make her last few days happy and peaceful. I know this news came as a shock to many, as Molly kept her cancer battle very private, and it is with great love and sadness I share these pictures, and say goodbye Molly, my friend, always in my heart. x
It’s been a perfectly glorious start to the summer, despite the odd rainy day, with some much needed family time at the Herefordshire Hideaway. As usual the dinners, desserts, conversation and local Chase vodka was flowing, and it was a perfect remedy for what had been a rather sombre previous week in New York.
Back in the big smoke it was down to business as usual, although who could call catching up with the dreamy Russian dance god Gleb work…
I had a wonderful evening at the very glamorous Caldwell Children Butterfly Ball, hosted by the exquisitely beautiful Rachel Stevens, where I caught up with the gorgeous Simon Webbe, and got to watch the legend that is Burt Bacharach perform! .
I’m so thrilled to say that the celebrity gala night of Jackie the Musical at Wimbledon theatre was a roaring success, made all the more so by a screaming audience of fans, friends and family, I can truly say we have a real hit!
I’ve still got all the goss from the Ab Fab movie premiere, my fabulous and very exclusive invite to Jackie St Clair’s summer party, plus my night watching dance divas Natalia Osipova and Sergei Polunin to write about, so make sure you check back in a couple of days!
Hope you’re all enjoying the sunshine…
Love Arlene x
