Joanne, who never really got along with her staff, didn't go to the after-folding drinks with the riff-raff, but she is having her own mag death drinks at her place soon. But still not inviting the riff-raff! Hey, she's also been joking around. Check out these back-to-back zingers in an interview with Newsweek:
What two things would you do differently, if you had a second go at launching Portfolio?
Lipman: I can only give one-to launch in a better economy.
When did you realize that the closing was inevitable?
Lipman: That point never came.
Ha! When it comes to jokes, go big or go home, amirite? Anyhow she says she's planning a vacation, but I don't know why, since she apparently lives in quite a nice bubble already: "I don't read Gawker," she told Page Six."It's kind of like Twitter: a time suck and mostly useless."
It's true! She could add "although also run by a tyrannical leader, still in business."
