Fugger: Leven Rambin

Fug Detective: Leven Rambin


This whole Primates of Park Avenue thing is fascinating. The book is being presented as a non-fiction piece of social anthropology by “Wednesday Martin Ph.D.,” but it’s turned out to be — per some journalists who did a little digging — a potentially largely fictionalized work by a person whose doctorate is in literature and whose given name is actually Wendy (which… what’s the point? It’s barely different! You are not fooling anyone!). Why not just write a novel, if you want to take expansive liberties? It was well-reviewed before people started poking around into its timelines and finding problems, and Simon & Schuster is reportedly putting a disclaimer on it in future printings claiming any divorce from reality is simply a memoirist’s narrative technique, even though it was initially presented as a more studied and researched project. Regardless, straight-up fiction wouldn’t have had that issue. The whole thing is bizarre.

At any rate, there was a book party, and for reasons I don’t entirely understand, actress Leven Rambin (True Detective 2, All My Children) showed up:

And she went EXTREMELY thematic. It’s as if Lilly Pulitzer had been asked to do an urban jungle collection for an Upper East Side tea party. I keep expecting Marcel the Monkey to swing in and land on her shoulder, just to be as obvious as possible.

So, between Kristen Wiig and Jennifer Morrison and then Kaley Cuoco and now this, I really do think the topknot and I are having a feud.

I just don’t think it’s WORKING on anyone. Of course, in this case, it doesn’t help that Leven is barely the legal drinking age and yet she’s clad in the fusty nightie of a much older socialite, who keeps her husband’s taxidermied body in her bedroom for occasional hugs, once stabbed her butler with a shrimp fork, and never met a gin bottle she didn’t noisily befriend.
