She's been the darling of society columnists and the despair of her family - for almost exactly the same reasons. If the incorrigibly adventurous Queenie's life story is ever captured in a book, we imagine it as an anthology of exciting short stories about numerous rich and famous admirers - the latest, of course, being London-based NRI Rishi Sethia.
While the collapse of her scandalous affair with her one-time best friend Anju Chulani's husband Farhad Taraporewala was largely attributed to his inability to cope with her high maintenance lifestyle, this loaded boyfriend seemed heaven sent. Well, not really. Your diarist has learnt that while Rishi's father Nirmal Sethia has erected a large industrial empire in his lifetime, father and son don't share a very cordial relationship. If our sources are to be believed, it is Rishi's sister who is more likely to inherit most of the family fortune.
We are now beginning to suspect this could be one of the reasons behind the friction creeping into the relationship - your diarist can confirm at least one instance of the so-called love birds getting into a public spat at a social soiree. The recent launch of Queenie's swanky new store in the heart of Bandra's jewellery hub took many by surprise. For the extensive gold and diamond inventory, she allegedly had some help from an elderly London-based NRI - completely unrelated to the Sethias - and according to our sources, he even helped take care of three years of the rather exorbitant rent. This super wealthy industrialist has been known to be generous with his help to damsels in distress, some of whom are now Page 3 divas.
While our man is suitably discreet about his helping hand to his lady friends, perhaps he could learn to keep them better hidden while he's on business trips to Udaipur.
