HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY: “I’m honored to be given an award for my mothering skills, but you should have consulted my children,” grinned actress Alfre Woodward, upon receiving a 2010 Outstanding Mother Award at the 32nd annual Outstanding Mothers Awards luncheon at The Pierre hotel Thursday. Another honoree, Maureen Chiquet, global chief executive officer of Chanel, agreed with her, and gave credit to her “outstanding children and extremely outstanding husband. I’d be lost and sunk if not for my husband,” said Chiquet, noting he’s at every sports event and school meeting while she’s often “in Seat 1L on Flight 006 from Paris.” Honoree Mindy Grossman, ceo of HSN, got a standing ovation for her heartfelt thanks to her mother, who recently died within three days of her father. Her mother always told Grossman, who was adopted, how special she was and “that I could do anything and be anything. She was my biggest supporter and fan from Day One.” Holly Atkinson, chief medical officer of HealthiNation, and lawyer Victoria Reggie Kennedy were also honored.
