The pathetic fixtures of New York High Society.


Peter Davis. So handsome, no?

Next train wreck? Peter Davis, yet another relative of Tipsy Mortimer.

Claim To Fame: Peter is Topper’s half brother, and Tinsley’s half brother-in-law. His other sister is Upper East Site Socialite/Designer Minnie Mortimer.


Currently: The even-tempered and drama-free Davis is currently a writer for Vogue Italia.

Ghastly as he may or may not be, I have always adored Vogue Italia and I am willing to forgive him because even if Italy is not Africa, it is admittedly a third world nation and at least Peter is trying to do something that has meaning, by writing about clothes that no one can ever afford to ever buy again, except for the Mercer family we suppose…

That kids is our wrap on the social faux pas and the protagonists of this wonderful vacuous party that you are all clambering on a nightly basis to get into, because let’s face it, you’re a nobody unless you’re perceived to be fabulous. Right? Oh well, if they can’t serve you free champagne there’s always Budweiser beer cans, they only cost $1.50 at the bodega down the road….

All in the family...



  1. These girls have a great time and are a great marketing tool for fashion companies, stop bein so jealous! Bob

  2. Your making these people more famous by even writing about them. I live in NYC and I’ve never even heard of them. Who cares? These people will always exist as long as our society remains somewhat in tact. They’ll never live in reality because they never know what it means to be uncomfortable or stressed. It’s not their fault just the way they were born. But their still humans dealing the cards they’ve got, though money comes with a huge price and I don’t envy them. Judging and calling them names is really immature and just makes you look bad. I would pay attention to myself and not buy into anything you don’t believe in, and forgive people, life is crazy.

  3. – good news- it looks like Scallywag is doing well– for this I am glad- good for him he works hard and he deserves it.

  4. I spent most of my life in Manhattan, and I’ve never heard of any of the people mentioned in the article…which is probably for the best. Are they really humans?

    I actually do do good. I helped my friend Skye organize his life as an artist which has led to jobs with you. I do not date moneybags what so ever. Everyone I’ve ever dated I have been independent of. I have been with the same man for two years now we do not live together nor do we exchange gifts. It is ok to come from money as long as you give back and I do. I even run marathons, three the next coming Sundays if you would like witness or come run alongside me. Everything that was made to appear to be how I act was cut and pasted together. I was in shock. It was all to make Tinsley look like an angel and Dabney Mercer has lost me as a friend. I was completely blinded and used for their sakes. Have a heart and understand how these things work and sometimes people get used in the process. Clearly I did, and I’m humble enough to admit it. It is embarrassing and vile and I do regret ever trusting Dabney Mercer. Even her boyfriend Marc Koch told me that they were using me, but I chose to take her side.

  6. Wow, #1 I dont even know who these people are (except one) and it really amazes me that anyone would find an inch of interest in them.

    Well written and sadly reveling how true the old saying goes, “you can put lipstick on a pig – but it’s still a pig”!..
