Ran into precious Candice Crawford today, that emerald-shaped rock of Gibraltar¬† flashing on her finger (“Didn’t he do well,” she said, “and all on his own!”), at the Nexus Recovery Center luncheon featuring Barbara Pierce Bush and Jenna Bush Hager today at Union Station. (Candice put on the Q&A, her heartthrob Tony came to lunch to see it all.) We couldn’t ask Candice about her wedding plans, and quite frankly, still being starry-eyed from the Texas Royal Wedding of May 7, I was more than happy to oblige. All I wanted was dirt on the house.
“Oh we’re moving into Tony’s home for now,” Candice told me. “But I do plan a little re-decorating, to make it less of a bachelor pad.”
Oh Tony, get ready! I told Candice that I sensed Tony was kind of a practical guy when it came to money matters, which she confirmed. Oh yes, she said. Which is why they plan to be in the Cottonwood Valley home for awhile. She was also super excited to lend her support to the Nexus program —
“We all deal with addiction, somehow, in our own way or in our families” said Candice.
Candice is also impressed with how, at Nexus, women are allowed to bring up to three children right to the Recovery Center over on LaPrada, so there are zero barriers to receiving treatment. (I mean, let’s face it: how can a woman seek treatment if she has no one to care for her children?) They get to stay together as a family in a clean environment. Nexus is one of the few facilities in the US that allows children to remain with their mothers through treatment.
