About The One

The One, a real estate broker in Manhattan, has been with David for almost 20 years. (As David likes to say, that's 39 in straight years.) Despite what many of you probably think, it's actually The One who does most of the cooking during the week. He prefers Manhattan while David enjoys the country, so they have a Green Acres-type relationship. The One is Eva Gabor to David's Eddie Albert--without the dresses and diamonds, of course.
