CLIP FOR POSTERITY The real Larkworthy

For the New York Post, Peter Braunstein's ex is proving almost as hard to catch as the "fire fiend" himself once was.

Yesterday, the Post ran a story about Jane Larkworthy, breathlessly labeling W's beauty director "the Helen of Troy of the Peter Braunstein case, the face that launched a thousand courtroom shrinks, the high-powered magazine executive who crushed his heart, propelling him into the violent insanity for which he goes on trial today." (Larkworthy dumped Braunstein, who allegedly went on to take captive and molest one of her former coworkers in October 2005.)

Unfortunately, the woman pictured with the article was not Larkworthy but Jane Keltner, Teen Vogue's fashion news director. (The Post's claim that Larkworthy would testify today was also incorrect.)
