By now it's no big news that Liz Smith, old-school NYC gossip queen, was let go by the New York Post. In her interview on the Daily Beast, Smith says that a useful purpose for gossip is in fact, "... to raise money for charity, which I’ve done millions of dollars worth over the years, and I don’t think that was too well received... in my most recent job." Literacy Partners is one charity for which Ms. Smith would gossip as she (as chairman) attended the Pre-Gala Cocktails for the organization's Evening Of Readings (held in May). The event, held at Michael's, brought out Paula Zahn, Mary Higgins Clark, Rory Tahari and more.
