Vanity Fair presents awful view of Sally Quinn

Font Size:

Sally Quinn, 68, third wife of legendary Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee, 88, is profiled in July’s Vanity Fair as an overbearing social climber who has alienated the children from his previous marriages.

Sally, a self-styled expert on entertaining, put herself in the magazine’s cross hairs last Christmas when she scheduled their son, Quinn’s, wedding on the same day in April when Bradlee’s granddaughter, Greta, was set to get married, thus ensuring that Bradlee’s older children couldn’t attend Quinn’s wedding.

Sally then made matters worse by writing in February about her “dysfunctional family” in her regular column in the Washington Post — which, after zealous complaints both by family members and readers, was killed by the paper’s new executive editor, Marcus Brauchli.
