The So-Far Unremarkable Career of Fashionista Diaries Star

Celebrity blog Fashionista reported today that Bridget Helene—whose internship at P.R. firm Seventh House was featured on the SoapNet show The Fashionista Diaries—landed and then lost a job at Vogue. According to the item, Ms. Helene, 25, was offered a full-time temp job at the fashion glossy after she ran into Anna Wintour at 4 Times Square. When House and Garden shuttered and the belly-up book’s staffers were placed at other in-house magazines, the reality TV star got the axe.

But Conde Nast is disputing that rather dramatic version of the tale.

“She was temping here," a spokesman for Vogue told The Daily Transom in an interview. "She came from our temp agency and was helping out with a project in the special events office. There might be some follow-up,” he said, referring to Ms. Helene’s future at Condé Nast. “It was more because we had some need for some temporary help. And she did a great job with filling in on that. I don’t think it was because she ran into Anna.”

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
