David Patrick Columbia’s New York Social Diary (2005)


The evanescence of good times in (sometimes) good society will be recorded, of course, in the New York Social Diary.

Fragment – ’Anatomy of a Gossip Item’: “I got a call late Monday afternoon from a man identifying himself as Hud Morgan, assistant to Lloyd Grove who has a column in the Daily News. He wanted to ask me some questions about Melania Trump, Donald Trump’s new bride.
Okay; it’s not unusual for someone in the media to call me about a social personality in New York, and I am always accommodating, if possible.
So Mr. Morgan says to me: ’she’s the chairwoman of a benefit for the Martha Graham Dance Company and she’s calling herself ’Melania Trump.’’
Okay, so?
Mr. Morgan asks something like ’don’t you think it’s a bit early for her to be calling herself Melania Trump?’”
