Yes, she is coming back. Countess Bedelia returns to South Beach tomorrow despite thinly-veiled threats for the safety of her motorcade (she flippantly said she would increase the armor). So, not only will every boy and bottle of Glenlivet be in danger, but there would seem to be no chance of a sober weekend. Mr. Astor has taken time off, so this is assured. I have--I think--truly tried to be good by going to the gym every afternoon instead of Twist. There's a lot to look at in the gym, but until they have something more potent than energy drinks, it lacks that certain something. The Countess is being very secretive about where she is staying; I offered some my finest guards to protect her from young boys to no avail.
