Page Six Editor Gives NPR the 300 Sandwiches Update

By FishbowlNY’s calculations, the bread-and-butter courtship of a certain lucky guy by Page Six senior editor Stephanie Smith will be completed – assuming no holiday breaks – on January 29, 2014. Just in time for a logical, return Valentine’s Day gift.

By then, also, who knows how many media appearances Smith will have logged. Not quite 300, like the number of daily sandwiches she is famously making for her boyfriend. But certainly in the dozens, if she so chooses.

This week, Smith dropped by NPR’s NYC studios to connect with Tell Me More host Michel Martin. Responding to the Internet criticism aimed at her engagement-ring efforts, Smith urged critics to actually read her blog posts. If they do, she suggested, they’ll understand the spirit of it all:

“It’s not just a girl making all this food to earn a man’s love. This is a journey between the two of us as we continue on towards engagement. And I don’t think I’m less of a woman or a hard-charging career woman because I want to do something nice for my boyfriend.”

Perhaps, once all this is completed, Smith can transfer these skills to a celebrity scoop. Something tells a couple of sandwiches delivered to the right celeb could seal the exclusive Page Six deal. Listen to Smith’s NPR interview here, which ends with a most appropriate song selection.
