Vito’s Vote, Finally

Rep. Vito Fossella finally tells us he voted Yes on the DeLay Rule in House Republican Caucus November 17. That’s the rule that allows members to remain in leadership after they’ve been indicted, the one even John Podhoretz and David Brooks flagged as a sign of Republican hubris and a danger to members in swing districts like, say, Staten Island.

“I was in support of the move,” Fossella told us this morning at the Sheraton New York Hotel. “The fundamental morality in this country is you’re innocent until proven guilty.”

A fine sentiment. But if he was proud of this vote, or didn’t think it was a political liability, do you think his press secretary, Craig Donner, would have ignored six phone calls and two emails on this question? Not that I was counting.

Princess Olympia of Greece and Denmark 

The only daughter of Pavlos and Marie-Chantal, the Crown Prince and Princess of Greece, has quite the Instagram presence. Her posts include front row shots from NYFW, tacos with friends at La Esquina and soft serve at Cha Cha Matcha, all for her 98,000 followers. The Parsons School of Design student is also quite the jet-setter, spending time in New York, London, Los Angeles and Hong Kong (and that's just in the last month). She pulled the ultimate royal move and was rumored to have been dating her godfather's son, Prince Harry. She is his type: blonde and aristocratic, with a major penchant for hipster, Coachella-worthy ensembles, just like his ex Cressida Bonas. The 20-year-old princess counts Hollywood elite Sofia Richie and fellow royal (and cousin) Talita von Fürstenberg as pals. Unlike other New York City college students who celebrated their birthdays dancing on tables at Greek restaurants in the East Village, Princess Olympia spent hers in Mykonos, despite not speaking a word of Greek. Her mother worked for Andy Warhol before marrying into the royal family. Yes, her whole life is all very Gossip Girl.
