Coming Soon: Wash Life‘s YGL Issue

They’re making a list and checking it twice…

Just when Santa Claus and his team wrap up their annual “naughty and nice” list, Wash Life begins work on their lineup. Yep, it’s “Young & the Guest List” season and WL‘s Michael Clements tells us that the annual list of Washington’s movers and shakers under 40 is well underway.

And though WL tries to keep the issue’s picks on the low, one might assume that two names will be missing this year – LNS Founder Reed Landry and Restaurateur Fritz Brogan. List regulars, Brogan and Landry were the subject of harsh ridicule in a YGL Exclusive article about their “disastrous” New Year’s Eve fete that left the National Building Museum in shambles and party goers pissed.

The piece was new blogger Katherine Delmonico‘s debut assignment for the mag and already, we want more Delmonico. Check out the new, not-so-soft side of Washington Life here.

Silver Spoons Collide: “Miss A” v. LNS.com

Silver spoons collided today after “Miss A” (Andrea Rodgers) attacked DC-born social network, LateNightShots.com on her blog AskMissA.com. It’s a blog off!

“It’s like one big bathroom wall. It’s the only place you can anonymously bash your social and/or business rivals. Removing the anonymity would make LNS, and the real Washington a nicer place, but doing so would would be the death knell for LNS, so I doubt that will ever happen.”

- Andrea Rodgers on LateNightShots.com from her blog AskMissA.com

In her post on LNS, Rodgers goes on to say:

“My hate for LNS stems from how my association with LNS led to my being the target of a “hit piece” written by Angela Valdez for the City Paper a few years ago. Before this experience, I thought “hit pieces” were used to target politicians and celebrities, but Ms. Valdez has made a career out of targeting and humiliating private citizens. If that weren’t enough Angela lumped me in with the very misogynistic, elitist, and racist aspect of LNS that I abhored.”

In response to Miss A’s criticisms, LNS Founder Reed Landry fired back, exposing Rodgers’ alleged “mean girls womens” tactics on his site’s forum:

What makes your blog post even more bizarre is that you, perhaps more than any person on LNS, use the site as a weapon to attack people you don’t like (often girls who are little more than half your age). Quickly removing these posts of yours on almost a daily basis over the years has been a chore, to say the least. It’s remarkable that a 40-year-old woman like yourself is unable to handle the anonymity afforded on a website that the vast majority of people in their early 20′s manage to enjoy responsibly.

Don’t care? Understood, but it’s August in Washington…cut me some slack.
