If Robert and Elena Allbritton are trying to keep gossip at bay from their private brunch today at their Georgetown home, they have a funny way of handling their media: Call Page Six.
That’s right. NYP‘s Page Six reporter Tara Palmeri (pictured here at the Washington Hilton during last night’s WHCD pre-parties) has been privy to details about the brunch and its guest list and learned fairly early on that she’d be attending. Palmeri attended the highly sought after invitation-only brunch last year when she worked for the Washington Examiner. She wasn’t invited, but went as The Daily Beast’s Lloyd Grove’s plus one.
Meanwhile, we’re hearing more chatter that some Politico reporters feel slighted about not being invited to the Publisher’s home while stars and other colleagues, such as those with more perceived clout, get in. Even Politico reporters who have been invited have been hesitant to breathe a word about going. Like any special perk within a workplace, some don’t want to brag about it.
We look forward to seeing what Page Six does with the brunch.
