Vanity Fair. Grazin' in the grass is a blast!
FT is just downright mean
And Tatler is even meaner:
One thing is certain. On both sides of the Atlantic the ‘fabulous Noels’, as they were simperingly known in society pages a few months ago, are beginning to find out who their real friends are. And, guess what? Those still taking their calls probably didn’t invest their nest eggs in FGG. The rest — like the yummy mummies currently cutting the Glamazons at the school gates — are having to lay off staff and lose the third car. Many are also reminding themselves that Walter Noel originated in Nashville, Tennessee, and the family is, therefore, no better than you’d expect.
Funny thing: back in December when i first starting writing about Walter and his misdeeds, friends of the Noel family would accost me, poke a finger in my face and tell me quite sternly to stop picking on that fine man and his family. Some of those same people now tell me how much they enjoy this blog and no one has urged me to lay off the story since it became obvious how much Walt took for doing so little. Plus, some of them may have checked their account balances since initially confronting me.
Haven’t read it yet but Vanity Fair is out with its article on Walter and his Fabulous Five. Should be fun reading for a snowy day.
UPDATE: Just finished it. Surprisingly sympathetic, all things considered. The reporter must not have invested with FGG.
Vanity Fair is working on a new in-depth article on the Noel family and its recent troubles. I haven’t seen it yet but I rather doubt it will have the same tone of fawning adulation that the earlier article about the “Fabulous Noel Girls” did. Monica, better call back the girls’ publicist and put her to work, pronto!
