The mystery of the competing WHCD brunches continues.
Instead of attending the Allbritton brunch in Georgetown, NYP Page Six’s Tara Palmeri chose the McLaughlin/Thomson Reuters brunch at the Hay Adams, which we’re now learning had no Creative Coalition stars, and no stars for that matter unless you count actress Morgan Fairchild, who was also at Tammy Haddad‘s garden party Saturday, a huge draw. “More long time friends of John [McLaughlin] and a mix of Thomson Reuters folks,” said a source who was there. “Pretty much his traditional group. He actually prefers catching up with old friends in a relaxed atmosphere.”
Faces in the crowd: Georgette Mosbacher , Ann and Lloyd Hand, Eleanor Clift, Wendy Diamond, Mary Amons with her dad, Mark and Rose Barondess ( Former CNN host Larry King‘s former lawyer), and lefty radio host Bill Press.
