Payola Six: Poopy Pants Are Not Tolerated

Nice cover story in the latest New York Press on the Payola Six scandal — so maybe they're a week late to the party, but they still bring with them some nice treats. Doug Dechert attended (UPDATE: make that "crashed") Page Six editor Richard Johnson and Sessa von Richthofen's wedding festivities, reporting that guests were concerned that Sessa's supposedly aristocratic father was "really born on the wrong side of the blanket and only adopted his father's family name later in life." How mortifying to have your wedding guests tittering that you might just be of average lineage.

As for post-nuptial affairs back at Camp Six, Dechert writes:

...eventually some heads are gonna roll. The Post will resist axing Richard Johnson because of the decades of investment the institution has made in building his imprimatur. As of this writing, Wilson is the most vulnerable member of the staff because The Daily News has already singled him out for accepting all expense paid, first-class trips from interesting sources. Wilson could be the next to go as this cancer metastasizes.

Interestingly, one of those first-class trips is rumored to involve some bed-shitting and sheet-burning. And we hear Col Allan really doesn't tolerate that sort of bedroom behavior. See update.
