...to our dear readers, particularly our beloved Mistress MJ and darling Jason, that SSUWAT will never, ever feature Ms. Leon Talley on its tasteful yet irreverent pages (and certainly not as an Icon!); chiefly, because we humbly concede that we have neither the sufficient snark of The Notorious J*O*E*, nor the delicate cheekiness that is Planet Fabulon - both or either of which are necessary when discussing (or dissing) ALT.
No, when The Talley comes up in cocktail conversation, our eyebrows involuntarily arch, our tone takes on the timbre of dry ice, and we feel compelled to grasp at imaginary, dowager-style pearls. And, frankly, all of that is quite difficult to convey in words on a blog post - so, henceforth, Miss Thing will be She Who Shall Not Be Named.
Hattie McDaniel, however, will continue to be featured, perhaps even deified.
Updates tomorrow, darlings. We're exhausted from a three day weekend involving a whirwind of ballet, beaus, bow ties, and Negronis.
(MC, your PMS compels us to forgive and forget. Jason, you're just too darn cute for us to remain miffed for very long.)
