Paige Lawson (née Collins) is Evan’s charming and adorable wife, as well as the ultimate Hamptons insider: beautiful, wealthy, and well-connected. But despite her privileged upbringing as the only daughter of Ellen and U.S. Senator William Collins, Paige is more than just a well-accessorized socialite. Capable of achieving just about anything she sets her mind to, Paige faces every obstacle with the determination and military precision of her four-star father.
Caring, generous and fiercely loyal to her family, Paige has a history of putting others first, having devoted herself to her father’s political career and her emotionally unstable mother. But when Paige discovered last summer that she was adopted at birth, her world fell apart. The parents she had known and loved her whole life had kept an enormous secret from her. After a heartbreaking – and ultimately fruitless – search for her biological mother, Paige realized that her true family was the loving that one she had all along. Paige finally decided to pursue her own dreams and began attending art school at Parsons in New York City. And in between classes two years ago, Paige and Evan finally tied the knot in a chaotic but intimate ceremony in the Hamptons.
Last summer, Paige also landed a coveted internship with Russel Berger, the preeminent art specialist with Sutton and Chesterfield – a prestigious Hamptons auction house. Under Russel’s tutelage, Paige flourished in her dream job, impressing Russel so much that he offered her a posting in Paris for the winter. But Paige, realizing her relationship with Evan had suffered, declined the offer to focus on their marriage instead.
