A Letter to “Page Six”


Dear Richard,

Why does the usually plugged-in “Page Six” deem it noteworthy that Ron Torossian, who seems to get more publicity for himself than his clients, has raided one of the least-respected, but most exposed “PR firms” in New York — Lizzie Grubman PR — for a junior staffer no less? In the real PR industry, these two firms rarely turn up on the radar. Do you think a New York Times profile of the former and an MTV series on the latter makes what services they provide respectable?

I promise not to retain Bert Fields to seek a retraction, but for the future, you should know where these two firms stand in the PR industry pecking order.

Your old friend,
