Before her death, the outspoken Stein had become increasingly press shy, having been burned too many times—most notoriously, Johnson banned her from his column after she implied to the New York Observer that she and the Page Six honcho were somehow "involved." Were Stein still here to monitor his column inches, we're sure she'd be looking with great interest to see how he's gonna tackle this doozy.
