TEEN-Y PROBLEM Rubenstein One person who won't be sorry to see the back of Seventeen editor Atoosa Rubenstein is her former intern and self-styled nemesis, Brianne Burrowes. Earlier this fall, Burrowes—who managed to land a summer internship at the magazine despite flaming out as a contestant on its reality show spinoff, Miss Seventeen—turned up on Page Six threatening to sue Rubenstein for slander. Burrowes claimed Rubenstein told staffers she had leaked damaging stories about the magazine to gossip blogs.
Last week, after Rubenstein announced she was leaving Seventeen to write a book and start a Web venture, visitors to Burrowes' MySpace blog noticed a new post, entitled "The Truth About What Happened Between Me and Atoosa."
"As many of you have heard, Atoosa and I have cut our ties with each other," she writes. "I want all of you who thinks sic she's a role model looking out for your best interests to know the truth."
