Ali Velshi and Christine Romans Are ‘Odd Couple’ Authors of ‘How to Speak Money’

TVNewser stopped by a book party for “How to Speak Money,” written by CNN anchors Ali Velshi and Christine Romans, last night.

Romans and Velshi were praised by CNN executive vice president Ken Jautz, who called the pair “the odd couple.”

“No names, but one of them is the kid who always has her homework done — her homework,” Jautz joked. “One of them, the dog always ate the homework. One of them gets a little nervous as the chapter deadline approaches, and one of them doesn’t have that problem because he’s not aware that it’s there.”

“Ali’s very into investing, I’m into budgeting,” Romans said. “Ali is a spender, and I am a saver. So the yin and the yang was there for us.”

We spotted CNN EVP Mark Whitaker and SVP Bart Feder, as well as New York bureau chief Darius Walker, at the party, which was at Landmarc in the Time Warner Center. Also in attendance: Anderson Cooper (pictured with the authors), Alina Cho and Alison Kosik.
