Two Wangs made headlines yesterday in New York Citay.
Yankee pitcher Chien-Ming Wang was named official spokesperson for the 2009 World Games, which will be held in Wang’s native Taiwan. MLB.com reports that the World Games will feature sports left out of the Olympics, like sumo wrestling and tug-of-war.
Wait, what? Tug-of-war? That’s a sport now? Really? You’re positive?
The other Wang, who can’t say her last name right and is pictured left looking like the Grim Reaper at last night’s Costume Institute gala, is ironically embroiled in a legal name-battle with the company Vera, a manufacturer of scarves and linens which at one time was synonymous with Wasp-chic. Page Six reported:
VERA Wang is about to launch a fashion line to be called Simply Vera – and the company founded by the other Vera, famous for the silk scarves Marilyn Monroe once wore, isn’t happy.
The rep [for the original Vera] said Wang had even gone as far as using her high-powered, stockbroker hubby as an attack dog. “Her husband, Arthur Becker, called our company and said, ‘I have $5 billion with Kohl’s behind me, and we’re going to take on any opposition. I’m putting The Vera Company on notice,” the rep said.
sugardaddy husband and his billions do your legal dirty work for you? I’m appalled, I’m outraged…alright, I’m jealous.
