At the famed Chez Georges, the cheek-by-jowl diners paid little attention to Jackie O’s sister, Lee Radziwill, who came in on Monday night with a friend and had the best table in the house. She told me she loved the HBO film “Grey Gardens” about her cousins, the Beales. “Drew was marvelous,” she said, and reminded her of her cousin Edie. Lee is one of the great beauties and survivors, with a Hollywood history: she was marrried to the late great director and producer Herb Ross. Long may she rule!
