Maria Bartiromo greets the crowd at her book party tonight. As CNBC president Mark Hoffman, correspondent Scott Wapner and anchor Trish Regan look on.

We’re just back from the Empire Hotel on Manhattan’s Upper West Side where CNBC threw a party for anchor Maria Bartiromo on the publication of her new book, “The 10 Laws of Enduring Success.”

We talked with several of Bartiromo’s CNBC colleagues including anchors Trish Regan, who pulled out the Blackberry to show us a picture of her twins, now four months old. “I’m turning into one of those people.” As we were chatting, NBCU CEO Jeff Zucker came up to say hello. He was shown the baby pictures too.

Also here toasting Bartiromo, Melissa Lee and Melissa Francis, who’s just weeks away from delivering her second child. “Another boy,” says Francis. “I feel like I’m starting to be surrounded.”

Scott Wapner, Sharon Epperson, Michelle Caruso-Cabrera and Bob Pisani rounded out the CNBC anchor/reporter corps.

Bartiromo told us she’s been going non-stop for weeks. “And that says a lot for me,” she says. After an introduction from CNBC president Mark Hoffman, Bartiromo thanked her co-author Catherine Whitney and her CNBC colleagues.
