On Tuesday at the Grace Hotel, Devorah Rose hosted the launch of a new bikini line. Oh. And she got in a huge blowout dramatic fight with Jules Kirby. How totally unexpected! Good thing the cameras were there to catch it all on tape!
Halfway through the launch of the bikini line (note: we were unable to find ANY information or publicity for this unnamed bikini line. Odd, considering usually it's the first thing Publicists want you to remember when you launch a new line...) Jules Kirby, scorned socialite comes in, despite being uninvited. And of course she goes straight to the prim Ms.Rose (who is no stranger to socialite fighting, reality shows, and the profitable combination of both).
According to Britten Heft, editor of scenebseen.com, (and also the woman who hired the photographer for the event, furthering our theory...) Kirby then apparently attempted to "tell off" Devorah--because of course, when one is angry at someone, the natural reaction is to find out where they are launching a non-descript bikini line and go give them a piece of your mind.
Hilariously, the point of contention had something to do with Devorah being "fake", which Devorah (& Friends) vehemently deny. Despite being at what seems like a fake bikini launch orchestrated for a reality tv show.
Something tells us there will be a repeat performance tonight when she appears at the Fleshbot awards, at least if Nick Denton gets his way (which he usually does...)
Anyway, if you're REALLY interested in the details of what happened, you'll be able to catch it when Devorah's show airs. I know it will be really, really hard to wait until then.
Scroll down for pictures of the fake-bikinis, the box of cupcakes with Ds on them (for Devorah!), and men inexplicably being groped in speedos.
