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.”

Soledad O’Brien Book Party at Russell Simmons Pad

TVNewser stopped by the book party for CNN anchor and special correspondent Soledad O’Brien Friday night at Russell Simmons‘ lower Manhattan apartment .

In The Next Big Story, co-authored by CNN producer Rose Arce, O’Brien takes a page from her award-winning …In America series, and other reporting experiences, and blends her personal story and mixed-race background (Cuban, Irish, Scottish, Long Island-ish) crafting an inspiring story of hope amidst the tragedies that are a staple of the TV news stories she covers.

The party was a mix itself, of hip-hop stars and tvnewsers: Katie Couric, HLN anchor Jane Velez-Mitchell, CNN correspondents Alina Cho, Susan Candiotti; CNN SVP Bart Feder, …In America EP  Geraldine Moriba, New York bureau chief Darius Walker, development EP David Doss and newly appointed EP of Piers Morgan‘s show Jonathan Wald were all in attendance.

O’Brien mingled with guests all while getting around with a cane. “It’s a step up from the crutches,” O’Brien told us. She’s still nursing a knee injury after being thrown from a horse in early October. O’Brien will continue the book tour with a stop in New Orleans. That event will be a fundraiser as residents continue to recover from Hurricane Katrina, a story O’Brien covered extensively.
