Although the E network pulled its rebroadcast of the Fashion Police episode in which Joan Rivers makes snarky comments about Whitney Houston (the episode originally aired the day before Houston died), the fashion critic says she has no regrets about what she said. “When she’s alive, she’s fair game. It’s part of being a celebrity,” Rivers tells WWD. [WWD]
My Tuesday morning was, to steal a term from the contemporary fashion scene, very high/low. It started uptown at the Plaza Hotel, where Marjorie Gubelmann hosted a breakfast for Sardinia, the newest scent in her luxury candle line Vie Luxe. Why Sardinia? “Because that place is heaven on earth,” said Gubelmann. “It’s luxe!” After scarfing a croissant and orange juice, I headed downtown to the God’s Love We Deliver headquarters in the David Geffen building on Spring Street and Sixth Avenue, where Joan Rivers, Blaine Trump, and Estée Lauder’s John Demsey were helping the organization prepare for its ten millionth meal for people living with HIV/AIDS. Down in the kitchen, Rivers was on packing duty, scooping pork chops, carrots, and brussels sprouts into containers. There was a countdown to number 10,000,000, followed by cheers and a little dance to “I Am What I Am,” and then the troop hightailed it to MacDougal Street to deliver the landmark meal. “This charity means so much to me,” Rivers explained in transit. “Look at me, I’m in a hairnet. You know I’m serious if I would wear one of these—every hair is important.” For more information on the charity, go to www.godslovewedeliver.org.
