Guest of A Guest notices (as we did earlier) that the Waverly Inn’s blog hasn’t been updated since May, and declares it “defunct.” Their theory? Graydon Carter has finally gotten wise to the fact that “to use Vanity Fair’s resources to publicize a personal investment doesn’t ring quite right.” Plus, “blogging about the ongoings of the Waverly seems to be at great odds with the environment [of celebrity privacy] Carter would want to create.” Actually, we just checked with Ye Waverly Blog’s anonymous author and it doesn’t sound like either of those things are a concern. In fact, we’ve been told to expect updates soon! In the meantime, enjoy the above video and the he said/she said account of a Waverly date between Vanity Fair assistant Bill Bradley (not the senator’s son, despite what the paparazzi thought) and a starstruck (OMG! Jamie-Lynn Sigler!) contest winner. Clearly Vanity Fair doesn’t give a hoot about the unseemliness of cross-promotion.
