Oleg Cassini's Widow Sues 'Vanity Fair' for Defamation

Si Newhouse blamed personally for inaccuracies in article

Oleg Cassini’s widow is blaming former friend Si Newhouse for errors in a Vanity Fair piece, according to a lawsuit filed recently in Manhattan Supreme Court. Marianne Nestor-Cassini is upset she was paired with CBS CEO Bill Paley in a Midtown apartment in the magazine’s September 2010 story by Maureen Orth about the bitter feud over the late fashion designer's $52 million estate. The suit claims that Newhouse, of all people, should have known better.
