This week: Suzy the Gossip
At the very centre of the brilliant world of New York high society is Suzy -
queen of all the international gossip columnists: real name Aileen Mehle. Wherever people are famous, or aristocratic, or talented, or scandalous - and certainly wherever they are rich - is where she belongs. She moves among them freely, calls them beautiful people, and every day millions of Americans can read what she says about them in their papers. Now we too in Britain can read the column that has made her rich and famous. What is her world? Who are the people in it?
