Morningside Heights, New York City, December 5, 2011 — From The Desk of Christopher London, Esq.
I have for a long time now turned away from the Socially Parasitic antics of Deborah Denise Trachtenberg, mostly because Justin Mitchell, he publisher of Social Life Magazine afforded me the opportunity to provide my perspective and photos in the pages of SL Mag, without having to interact with Ms. Rose. I hold no business or economic interest in the publication nor have I had any control over the content or direction thereof. My contributions have been limited to writing about the philanthropic events I chose to cover, along with photos taken by me and my brother at ManhattanSociety.com
What is truly and highly problematic for me is the posture taken by Ms. Devorah Rose (a.k.a, Deborah Denise Trachtenberg), the Upstart Jewish Socialite, in what appears to be yet another publicity ploy by the ‘Celebrity of Her Own Making’. As one who has witnessed abuse first hand and covered charitable organizations that support the abused, what is deeply troubling is the Fame Monster’s attack of Salman Rushdie and equating Salman Rushdie’s decision to back off and not to pursue any kind of ‘intellectual relationship’ with the fame crazed reality star wannabe, with a woman being physically, emotionally, verbally or psychologically abused. This is beyond unacceptable. It is shameful.
I expect better from a Columbia University graduate who holds herself out to the public at large as the Editor in Chief of any magazine. Whether or not she is responsible for the content of the magazine, which evidence is not clear that she is, she should know better. Her posture is morally compromised and in effect stains anyone whose name is on that masthead along with hers.
PLEASE NOTE that if Devorah remains on Social Life Magazine’s masthead as Editor in Chief in the Summer of 2012, this Society Editor will no longer contribute in any capacity to said publication. The publisher has a decision to make. This is not the kind of publicity that I or anyone who joined a magazine even as contributors wants to be associated with. I am humbled and humiliated.

CW’s High Society gets the green light for season 2 but now needs new characters. But who will fill the void?
What tender loving things did Devorah Rose and Paul Johnson Calderon say to each other at last night’s Gen Art premiere?
