You know that sensation you get when you can see the outlines of a PR ploy but you can't quite tell the furniture from the wallpaper yet? Well, something's up in the social land of Tinsley Mortimer and Olivia Palermo, and we're not sure if the wee socialites are in collusion, feud, or what. There's today's Gatecrasher, where Tinsley allegedly hockey-checked Olivia on the runway at some horrible Scottish fashion show on Monday—an incident unnoticed by other attendees. Now that Olivia is being represented by serious toughie Kelly Cutrone, she's at the highest she's ever ranked on the new Socialite Rank ratings—though they do stop and drop for a dig from an emailer: "Olivia looked stunning, but no one really knew who she was. She barely received any applause. Tinsley really worked it and it showed." Hmm. Cui bono, we ask? If anyone can fill us in on the story behind the stories, we'd appreciate it.
