Top 10 Blogs to Stalk Socialites
This blog scares (and skewers) me frequently. It includes snarky profiles of notable New Yorkers and is on the scent of every social maneuver in the city, replete with handy maps so you know exactly where Nina Griscom and Leigh Lezark live. Very Big Brother.
Emily Brill (the daughter of Steven Brill) pours her life out on her blog and then Gawker dissects her every post, generating more hits for Brill.
Look up your favorite party boy or girl and see their "rank" - i.e. how many times they got photographed that week.
Style with a heavy dose of society. "The Daily" covers oft-photographed Vogue editors like Meredith Melling-Burke and socials like Tinsley Mortimer in the way Us Weekly stalks Britney and Branjelina.
Rachelle Hruska, the site's editor, is pretty and sweet. She tracks every move of the younger set, like Liam McMullan (Patrick's son) and Lydia Hearst. Fun and never too mean.
David Patrick Columbia's comprehensive site is a who's who in NYC, chock full of profiles and party pix.
Run by James Kurisunkal, a 19 year old Illinois college student, PAP replaced the snarkier Socialite Rank. The comment boards are vicious and addictive - a slam book of every social name in NYC.
Fashion meets society fame 24/7 on this site.
This site chronicles the fabulous lives of boldface names like Maggie Betts, Genevieve Jones and Bonnie Morrison. Fierce!
Blogger Tia Walker covers the scene and (thankfully) includes non-white socialites to her mix.
