"Much Ado About Edie"

"I don't think it's a co-incidence that this new interest in Edie has grown at the same time as reality TV and the 'Paris Hilton bratpack' of nouveaux celebs. Edie, not to put too fine a point on it, would never have shown her vagina while disembarking from a taxi. Edie was a pioneer of being famous simply for being famous and, as such, she is in a direct line to dear Miss Paris. The substantial difference between Edie and Paris is that Edie understood the Wildean concept of living one's life as art and consequently projected a celebrity that is still dazzling today. Edie did things, Paris just turns up places to collect a paycheck." Quote via The Hotel Chelsea Blog
