Socialite and businesswoman Georgette Mos bacher, whose name is a familiar fixture in columns that chronicle New York's rich and famous, made the police blotter today after she was robbed at a hotel. The 43-year-old wife of Secretary of Commerce Robert A. Mosbacher ran into a well-dressed Uzi-toting thief in the plush halls of the Barbizon hotel on Manhattan's Upper East Side Tuesday evening, police said.

November 3, 1993 | JENIJOY La BELLE, Jenijoy La Belle is a professor of literature at Caltech and author of "Herself Beheld: The Literature of the Looking Glass" (Cornell University Press, 1988).
Every now and then I like to curl up with a how-to book. I favor those that promise to reveal the lowdown on love and the secrets of success. In the 1980s, Helen Gurley Brown's "Having It All" was the best known guide to men, money and making the most of yourself. For the '90s, Georgette Mosbacher is promoting "Feminine Force: Release the Power Within to Create the Life You Deserve." Both books are semi-autobiographical and ask us to accept the author as a role model.

Regarding the article on Georgette Mosbacher ("Hurricane Georgette," Sept. 22): It is after marrying three wealthy men twice her age that she now espouses financial independence for women. The only clue that Mrs. Mosbacher might be in the process of evolving into a truly independent person is her comment that unless you have financial resources of your own, you can't be free. Her advice to married women who wish to become financially independent is to hold back a few dollars out of the milk money.

It was raining. Gray clouds hung heavy in the sky like dirty bags of laundry. I sat at my desk and lit a cigar. That was breakfast. The most important meal of the day. I'm a reporter. It's my job to know what's going on. My paper's motto is: "If It Happens in the World, It's News to Us." The Chief called me into his office. "Kid," he said, for that is what they call me, "what story did I assign you two months ago?" I tried to think. "Was it a series?" I asked. "Potholes: Threat or Menace?"

GLOBAL REACH? The Drug Enforcement Administration is about to begin a major personnel shake-up designed to mollify critics who see its top brass as too short on practical experience and too prone to John Wayne-style tactics. The shuffle is timed to come just before the DEA steps up its overseas activities as part of the Bush Administration's rapidly widening war on drugs.

Detectives searched Wednesday for a robber armed with what appeared to be a submachine gun who held up Georgette Mosbacher, the wife of U.S. Secretary of Commerce Robert A. Mosbacher, as she stepped off an elevator on the 20th floor of a Manhattan hotel. Police said the gunman took Mosbacher's wedding band, watch and other jewelry plus $400 in cash, her passport and personal papers. A police spokesman estimated the total value of the jewelry seized at $30,000.

Georgette Mosbacher fills the role of beauty queen just fine. Dubbed "Big Red" by Women's Wear Daily, which records her every move in New York and Washington social circles (usually on the arm of her husband, Secretary of Commerce Robert Mosbacher), the statuesque redhead and CEO of La Prairie cosmetics is living proof that a cosmetics company can benefit from hands-on leadership. When Mosbacher works a sales counter, she's a star.

There was another press conference in Washington Wednesday morning. Yawn. A foundation gave money to renovate a gallery in one of the national museums. Snore. And there were speeches, smiles, handshakes and press kits. No, thank you. But six television cameras showed up. And four rows of reporters were there--pert, pens posed and in their seats. In what has to be one of the more brilliant publicity stunts in the history of the U.S.

Georgette Mosbacher insists she's an Unremarkable Woman. Really. "I am not at all remarkable," she says, perched on the sofa in the pale yellow drawing room of her Upper East Side townhouse office. "I grew up in a one-parent family, I worked my way through college, I had very average grades and I was very average-looking, but I've lived a remarkable life only because I believed I could."

Re "Hurricane Georgette" (Sept. 22): Who says you have to apologize for being a woman anyway? You do not have to make up to make out. This article is outrageously dated. Maybe 30 years ago I would have felt that I had to do all of this to attract a man. Today women are liberated. I am no feminist, but I still think that women shouldn't have to put on make-up and slinky clothing to attract men. I think this woman demeans herself to look good in the eyes of men.
