Janice Dickinson, leonine First Supermodel and television personality, pulled a minor "gay gaffe" at Hiro Ballroom last night. Upon running into Village Voice gossipeuse Michael Musto in the can, she accidentally called him Bob Colacello. Though, I can understand the crazy woman's confusion. Even though Musto is nearly ten years younger, both he and Colacello, the Vanity Fair writer and former Warhol companion, are chroniclers of pop culture, both come from Brooklyn, both wear silly glasses, both are gay (well, Colacello is "presumably" so), and both went to Columbia at some point. Actually, I think they are the same person. Much like Dickinson is also Catra from She-Ra.
