    Summary

    "In this town, there are things you see but shouldn't. You learn when to linger in the shadows, how much of your face to turn to the enemy flashlight like the phases of the moon. You learn lies like a language. How to tell them. How to spot them."

    Tilda Lydeker knows how to keep a secret.

    Summary

    PUCKER UP: this fast-talking fruit magnate-ess was spotted in a rare clinch on the dance floor at the RKO gala last night, showing off her assets in a gold Balenciaga number that had us by the pips... she's sweet as sugar now, but she's never been in a hurry to put down roots before... and with the sour looks she was getting across the floor, perhaps rumors of infidelity and sibling rivalry are flowering on the vine... don't expect her to settle on a main squeeze in the near future, we say.

    Summary

    I said at La Brea that I wouldn't lie for her, and I didn't. I just… told the truth in the wrong voice.
