Media Whore D'Oeuvres











John, Elisha, Alexandra, and Margaret Thornton with Sheikh Shakhboot Bin Nahyan Al Nahyan


"This past Saturday night in Wainscott at their oceanfront home, Kilkare, Eleanora and Michael Kennedy hosted a celebration for Margaret Thornton and her novel Charleston. Margaret is the author of Tennessee Williams Notebooks, for which she received the BronzeFOREWARD Magazine Book of the year award for autobiography/memoir and the C. Hugh Holman prize for the best volume of southern literary scholarship. Her work has appeared in the Paris Review, World Literature Today, and the Times Literary Supplement, to name a few. She is a native of Charleston, graduate of Princeton University, and is married to John Thornton. They have four children. Guests from the worlds of literature, art, and publishing joined the neighbors in the Georgica association to honor Margaret. Among the attendees: The Thornton family, Candice Bergen, Marshall Rose, Ross Bleckner, Julian Robertson, Nancy Brinker, Kathleen Doyle, Richard Ravitch, Anna Safir, Jerry Della Femina, Judy Licht, Priscilla and Chris Whittle, Clifford Ross, Tad Friend, Amanda Hesser, Tom Edelman, Charlotte Moss, John Eastman, Ronald Lauder, Jo Carol Lauder, Leonard Lauder and Judy Glickman, Heather Watts and Damian Woetzel, Sima Ghadamian, and Chris Isham."

"In June, Hollywood journalist Nikki Finke launched an eponymous website following her drama-filled departure from Deadline.com. Last week, BuzzFeed reported that NikkiFinke.com was on the verge of shuttering following demands from lawyers representing her former employer, Penske Media Corporation, which owns Deadline in addition to Variety. Much schadenfreude was had. As we wrote last November, a new confirmed photo of Finke has not been published since 2008, which is bizarre because she lives in Los Angeles, a city that happens to be full of photographers both professional and amateur. People want to know what Finke looks like these days because she has terrorized Hollywood for years, and when someone yells at you on the phone, you want to have a picture of her in your mind."

Sarah Goodbody and Lord Charles Spencer-Churchill



"Aristocrats are packing up in St-Tropez, Capri and Ibiza and breaking out dinner jackets for the fall social season. Guests on both sides of the Atlantic are already buzzing about the impending nuptials of Lord Charles Spencer Churchill and Sarah Goodbody Sept. 19 at England’s Blenheim Palace.
The 18th century pile is occupied by Charles’ brother, the Duke of Marlborough and his wife, Lily. We hear the Duke’s ex, Rosita Spencer-Churchill, just returned from cruising Corsica with her kids. But first she’s expected as a guest at the 80th birthday of Oklahoma real-estate man Konrad Keesee, whose son, Christian, is throwing a four-day bash at The Connaught and sailing over American guests on the Queen Mary 2 on Wednesday, including 79-year-old former Vogue cover girl Fern Tailer. Also attending, we hear, will be Princess Esra of Hyderabad, who’s planning her own upcoming bash for 90 guests at Falaknuma Palace, her former home." (P6)
