Guess Who’s Not Coming to Dinner?

WaPo‘s Sally Quinn is out of the wedding writing business. And it looks as though she won’t get a chance to revive the genre anytime soon.

This morning Quinn told MSNBC’s dayside anchor Tamron Hall that she and her hubby, Ben Bradlee, are not invited to what’s turning out to be the royal event of the year – Chelsea Clinton’s wedding. She blushed as she said between clenched teeth “We’re not close to the Clintons.” All the while, she offered a hard smile.

Hall was trying to be kind – after all, it’s awkward when you ask someone if they’re going to a party and she hasn’t been invited. A little embarrassed, Hall said, “Well, I know you’ll get the scoop even if you’re not there.”

Sally gritted her teeth again and said, “I hope so.”

As many might recall, Quinn’s final WaPo column, which was called “The Party,” involved dueling weddings in her husband’s family. The column was axed in late February.
