Best Public Figure Cribs

Sally Quinn
Leave it to woman-about-town Sally Quinn to kick the idea of Cribs spin-offs into its well-deserved coffin. In a September video for digital news site Now This News, the Washington Post columnist leads viewers through the toney Georgetown house she shares with ex-Post honcho Ben Bradlee (representative vital stat: “6 Warhol originals”). Quinn’s Cribs combines another era’s insideriness—bathroom visitors can read a note from H.R. Haldeman blacklisting Quinn from Nixon administration shindigs—with Georgetown shallowness. Studying a painting made by a monk who survived the atomic bombing of Nagasaki, Quinn hopes it’s not radioactive. If she’s going to keep turning out videos like this, so do I.
