Joezee_ninagarcia >> The Nina Garcia-Elle saga ensues: New revelations have surfaced that even if Nina decides to accept the contributing editor role she's been offered , it will only be for six months, tops, and then she'll be entirely out of a job. 

But the Elle mess just gets messier.  The Tyra Banks-produced reality show, "Fashionista," which follows young contestants as they compete for an assistant position to Elle creative director Joe Zee, is grating on the nerves of staffers:

"It's a nightmare," one insider complained. "And his real assistant hates it. No one believes they're actually going to hire the person who wins the reality show."

I hope, for Elle's sake, that all of this is worth it — foraging into reality TV with Tyra, no less, and airing all the Nina laundry out in the open.  It will be interesting to see if their tactic of trading discretion for publicity fares well for the magazine, or just ends up backfiring.  Fashion is all about image, after all.
