>> I was skeptical at first. Usually Bee Shaffer's columns are so ho-hum, and this one was about internships, so I was expecting it to be a rehash of the New York Times article on interns from about a week ago. But no, Bee went and got all scandalous on us. Maybe she was inspired by the recent publication of Fashion Babylon, which sounds sinfully scandalous, but I don't know, because I'm still waiting for my copy to get here, Mr. Ebay Seller.
In any case, Bee pulls the cover off that highly-publicized internship Mary-Kate Olsen had a few years back with Annie Liebowitz:
I happen to know one of Mary-Kate's fellow interns and he informed me that she didn't know what a negative was, and that when she attended a Sarah Jessica Parker shoot, she only stayed for an hour and all she did was sit and smoke Marlboro Reds. Apparently, she not only left the photo assistants dumbfounded, but also Ms. Parker, who muttered: "What the hell is an Olsen twin doing here?"
