My life in 11 pictures


I was raised in this redbrick school house in Indiana. 

Miss Cheerleader.jpg

I've been a cheerleader all my life.


And been crowned quite a bit.

I became a journalist and wrote for ESQUIRE and OUTSIDE, published a bunch of books, and became the first woman to walk from Telefomin in Papua New Guinea, across the Star Mountains to the border of Irian Jaya.

I wrote the "Ask E. Jean" column in ELLE for

27 years before I was fired.  It was a gas! I loved

it! I also had the "Ask E. Jean" TV show.  Loved that too!


I've had two husbands, 20 dogs, lived 9 lives and 

after writing for New York, The Atlantic and Vanity Fair, I'm having a hell of a great time writing my SUBSTACK. So. Don't just sit there, Beauteous and Witty Reader! Come join us!!


Wait. I see that is only 6 pictures.  So here's my cat,

Vagina T. Fireball wearing her anti-bird-killing collar.

And.....thanks to my brilliant attorney, Robbie Kaplan,
I am the first person to hold Donald Trump liable for his
lies since he became president.

Front Row: Cool yet sizzling Shawn Crowley, a still-stunned E. Jean, illustrious Robbie Kaplan, Honorary Woman Matt Craig. Second Row: Maria Mizbani, Alison Hurst, Donya Kahdem, the Bride Emma DeCourcy, Hot Mom Rachel Tuchman, and tender Helen Andrews. In a row by himself: 538 IQ Joshua Matz. Back Row: the ferocious and inimitable Mike Ferrara, Elizabeth Kromer, Kate Harris, Hannah Charak. Last row on the face of the earth: the excellent Adam Bresgi.

And wait

   There was a 2nd trial for damages
and a unanimous federal jury decided

   And.... here's the dazzling team that fought for four and-a-half years to beat trump twice:

Left: (a smidge of) Katherine Kromer, helen andrews, Trevor morrison, Joshua matz, shawn crowley, yours truly, robbie kaplan, matt craig, kate harris and emma decoursey.  (somehow Alison Hurst is not in the picture I have no idea where she is---probably off interviewing at various top law schools---all of which accepted her!!.)
