This morning Page Six tried to unravel the increasingly tangled web surrounding Olivia Palermo, Tinsley Mortimer, Peter Davis, Kristian Laliberte, and the dueling socialite-themed websites that some combination of these people might operate, contribute to, or maybe just tip off.
Peter Davis, Tinsley's best friend and brother-in-law, has become close with stylist Kristian Laliberte, Olivia's best friend, according to parkavenuepeerage.com - a development that's infuriated Tinsley and hubby Topper. The two women are in a vicious struggle to reign over New York social life, and Tinsley recently made it physical when she elbowed Olivia to the ground during a fashion show.
Does this recounting bear any resemblance to what's really going on? Or is the entire teapot-tempest just an elaborate scheme on the part of someone to get press? Because, let's face it, what are these people famous for again—having ringlets? A clue may lie in the series of blatantly fake tips we've been receiving, all directing us to the relatively new anti-Socialite Rank site Park Avenue Peerage.
LMFAO. Check out Park Avenue Peerage. She was dancing with this flaming Miami PR guru to "Give It To Me" and mouthed that "si mami, si mami" line! Do we even need a guido Tinsley (Olivia) when we have Tinsley doing this already? Some WASP!
reads one. And another, from a different address:
Did you guys see Jay McInerney at the Hearst party (there is a photograph on Park Avenue Peerage)? I was there! He was tipsy and was even hitting on Amanda (his wife Anne's daughter) — even in the picture, he's grabbing her side, but is he grabbing Anne's? I spoke with him earlier in the night. He's completely silly and charming (and smart) so I could see why Anne would keep him around but still... ew!
From yet another address:
i remeber reading this on socialiterank: "Get a real job Kristian, pay your dues, take off that thrift fur and please don't try to insult Rachel Zoe by implying you want to be the next her. Of course, if you prove us wrong we'll actually respect you. But we fear that will never happen." now i read in park avenue peerage that in fact kristian is working at a real job thats getting japanese attenttion etc... im so sick of socialiterank. they just tear people apart that they once builtup, ie olivia palermo. its funny because isaih wilner interviewed peter davis, kristian laliberte, and olivia palermo for the new york article thats coming out.. maybe we will gfet some truth on sr then.
And from still one more address:
Original hipster" Chloe Sevigny with The Tinz:oh! and derek blasberg was there with his boyfriend lyle maltz (barbara bush ii's best friend from yale) — they're going out! and kate schelter joined them there... the suspect behind SR according to page six.
Here's the kicker, though:
Hilarious Kristian Laliberte pix from his "photoshoot" for some gawdy Japanese magazine at www.parkavenuepeerage.wordpress.com. Also from that same post, he's reportedly going out with Peter Davis, Tinsley Mortimer's brother-in-law, and went partying with Olivia Palermo at Izzy Gold's "New York launch" where he was quite chummy with Olivia. Who will Kristian choose? Tinsley or Olivia? Let the saga begin! Oh, and I forgot to add: his full name is Kristian Bravo Laliberte. Have fun, Gawker!
Also there were some pictures supposedly of Kristian's Manhunt profile. Conclusion: Kristian Laliberte has a lot of Gmail accounts, but not a ton of brains.
