When we correctly broke the story that Interview Editor-In-Chief Ingrid Sischy was leaving, the mag's PR flacks were like "Naw!" and we were like "okay!" but then they were like "Um actually yeah!" and we were like "ad;flk! told you so!" Also, we didn't really delve into the whole hot lesbian affair side of things. Too much integrity/class! Post's Page Six wasn't afraid to go there. From today, "[Newly sole Interview owner] PETER Brant might as well have told Ingrid Sischy, "And don't let the door hit you on your way out," after he bought out his ex-wife's half of Interview magazine last week. Sischy edited Interview for 18 years, working closely with the publisher, her longtime girlfriend, Sandy Brant. But Peter sounded like he was still wounded that his wife left him for a woman."
Asked what the magazine would be without Sischy and her extensive contacts driving the content, Brant told WWD: "To say that Interview is a product of Ingrid's friends . . . that's like saying, 'What's Vogue going to be like without [former editor] Grace Mirabella?' Anna Wintour does a really great job." Glenn O'Brien, Interview's new editor, whom Peter has cast as the new Wintour, promised in the Times to make Interview "more international and artistic - and definitely funnier." And Brant twisted the knife, saying, "I just thought they could really use some direction, going forward, of a younger generation of people." Friends of Ingrid were shocked at Brant's ungallant slap at a gifted editor who devoted so much work and so many years to making his magazine profitable.
