Huma Abedin was out at a starry charity awards gala with Vogue boss Anna Wintour after the magazine posted an explosive excerpt from Abedin’s new memoir “Both/And: A Life in Many Worlds,” about her ex, Anthony Weiner.
Abedin and Wintour attended God’s Love We Deliver’s Golden Heart Awards the same day the excerpt revealed how Weiner came clean to his then-wife about his infamous sex pic scandal.
Abedin arrived at the fancy gala at the Glasshouse and posed for photos with Wintour and designer Michael Kors — who donated $100,000 to the organization — before sharing a table with Jujamcyn Theaters head Jordan Roth.
Alan Cumming hosted the event and acknowledged, “Broadway is back with capital jazz hands. I watched ‘Hamilton’ last night. I’ve never been so excited to pay $17 for M&Ms.”
Cumming also joked about “COVID mask rules” obscuring the work of any plastic surgery enthusiasts in the room. “I know it’s hard to cover up those beautiful faces —especially when you’ve paid so much money for them,” he said.
Guests had to provide proof of vaccination, and a same-day negative test, in order to attend.
Music legend Clive Davis introduced Dionne Warwick, who performed “What The World Needs Now,” before honoring CNN’s Don Lemon.
“Pose” star Billy Porter — who trashed Vogue in a recent interview for putting Harry Styles, “a straight white man, in a dress on their cover for the first time,” was also honored.
Our spies, however, didn’t see Porter address the matter with Wintour.
The event raised more than $2.2 million to fund meals and programs for people living with serious illnesses.
In her book, Abedin, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s former chief of staff, describes how her world was turned upside down when Weiner, a congressman from Queens at the time, copped to his seamy sex pic scandal in 2011.
“I still remember everything about where we were in that moment,” writes Abedin, who filed for divorce from Weiner in 2017.
