Comes now “House of Gucci,” a story of murder starring Lady Gaga and Adam Driver.
In 1995 I repeatedly reported on the Gucci murder. I knew the gamers personally. The actual merchandise of the household have been lawsuits, fights, hates.
I reported cousin Paolo stiffing divorced spouse Jenny. I reported lawsuits over opening the NYC store. July 1998 and once more ’99, years after Patrizia killed off hated ex-husband Maurizio, I reported this ex-high life Mrs. Gucci was then working in the jail laundry. I even quoted Italian newspapers accusing her “of not only doing in her husband but of having similar hobbies in the past.”
The household hated and despised each other. Always threatening, combating. Distrust and jealousy have been palpable. In ’85 I reported “dethroned Aldo Gucci suing Museum Tower.” It was fixed wars — suing, divorcing, betraying, screaming till now not was anybody named Gucci — in phrases of birthright — behind the corporate. The troubled Guccis have been the fashionable de Medicis.
Artist Mark Kostabi simply had a main artwork pilgrimaged. A go to to his Chelsea townhouse the place devotees may seize oil work off the partitions, then dinner at Cafe Fiorello, which between pizzas and pastas hung a dozen of his canvases, then drinks at Park West Gallery for collectors. Somewhere round $500,000 modified fingers.
Kyle Rittenhouse would possibly seize a job supply from a Republican in Congress. Florida’s Rep. Matt Gaetz is considering to ask him to work on Capitol Hill. “He’d make a good congressional intern,” Gaetz stated. “We may reach out and see if he’d be interested in additional ways.” Good. Florida may use at the very least one younger particular person transferring in.
More politics. Vegas bookmakers, hesitant in setting the primary odds till they see what Trump’s forces do, betting that in 2022 midterms Republicans take again the Senate and House. Also governorships. But in Georgia, if Perdue wins main over Kemp, they’re selecting Abrams for governor by 5 %. In Texas, Abbott over O’Rourke by 10 %. About New York they up to now don’t know borscht.
No turkey, simply speak
In days of yore not everybody had a nice home made turkey feast. Me, when reporting from Kabul, Afghanistan, I had simply plain white rice. The then Comm. Bill Bratton by no means even noticed the Thanksgiving Day parade. And France’s nice couturiere Givenchy? His drumstick was in Palm Springs.
My subsequent Thanksgiving want: Camels, the taxicabs of the Sahara, seldom must pee. For hours they carry their very own physique water while not having a dromedary lavatory. Question: Somewhere someway someday someplace is there not some geneticist who can handle to intermarry a pleasant camel to my small Yorkie? Please??!!
Hunting a quickie little Christmas present? Forget the final two years consuming whereas standing in entrance of an open fridge door in a kitchen that’s doubled as your workplace. Hustle your bones over to Shrubsole. They’re pushing a set of 4 George II candlesticks. Made in London 1756. Engraved with an earl’s coronet, Garter motto and crest. Commissioned for the eighth Earl of Winchilsea. I imply have respect. We’re not speaking no McDonald’s plastic packets of ketchup right here.
His Earlship was elected to Parliament, member of the House of Lords, Comptroller of the Royal Household, First Lord of the Admiralty and its Lord President and made Knight of the Garter in 1752.
The value I don’t know. Try a half-inch of your cryptobucks.
Beause security acutely aware commuters aren’t taking public transportation, as a result of not everybody’s locked into an workplace, as a result of it’s vacation rush time, visitors is now so dangerous it’s the primary time I used to be ever overtaken by an deserted automotive.
