Ali Wentworth shares her favorite Hamptons escapes

Ali Wentworth and her news anchor husband George Stephanopoulos have kept a house in the Hamptons for 20 years: first in East Hampton, then Southampton, and now back to East — on the very same street where they used to reside.

“East Hampton is the place we go to for relaxation, family time and decompression,” Wentworth, 57, tells Alexa. “I have been pregnant there, raised children, celebrated birthdays, holidays and made great friends. Most importantly, I learned how to rake for clams there.”

It’s also the place the actor and writer (who’s starred in everything from “In
Living Color” to the Pop series “Nightcap,” which she also created) spent much of the early days of the pandemic, recovering from COVID-19 and penning her new book, “Ali’s Well That Ends Well: Tales of Desperation and a Little Inspiration.”

“I wrote it as a journal of what it was like being in quarantine with my family and what our coping mechanisms were,” she said. “I hope people who read it remember the lessons they learned during the extremely unprecedented time of a global pandemic. And maybe laugh a little — particularly with the chapter about our obsession with the show ‘Love Island Australia.’”

Here are a few of the comedian’s favorite homes away from home in the Hamptons.
