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.”
