Phil Singer Takes Time Off, Returns

The longer-than-expected (and tougher-than-expected) Democratic primary contest temporarily claimed a victim in the Clinton press office this week, as spokesman Phil Singer took his first sick days since August in order to, as he told me, “clear [his] head and get over a stomach flu.”

Singer was off for a couple of days, he said, but is back at work starting today.

After I talked to Phil, one of his colleagues called to add this: “Given the last week, anytime somebody takes a couple days off, they assume the worst. But in this case the worst was a flu and not a day off since August.”

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.
