The aging party queens over at online slam book SocialiteRank have been smacking their suspiciously plump lips over the supposed leak of an e-mail penned by Manhattan It Girl-on-the-make Olivia Palermo. The embarrassing missive—a plea for friendship and opportunities to contribute more on the charity circuit—was “better than Ecstacy,” SR cackled, characterizing it as a desperate attempt by Palermo to scale the perilous heights of uptown society.
There’s only one catch: Palermo, who co-starred in Radar‘s spring fashion shoot, swears she didn’t write the e-mail. “I completely don’t care what the media writes about me, but I’m freaked out that someone would set up an e-mail account claiming to be me,” she says. “Anybody who gets e-mails from me knows that I don’t write like that. Why would I send out an e-mail asking for friends when I can just text any of the 400 people in my Blackberry?”
