Maureen Dowd tells The New Yorker this week: “He came back from Davos a couple of years ago, and he was in my office, and said, ‘Oh, you know, I sat near this woman at dinner and she was really attractive.’ And I said, ‘What was her name?’ He said, ‘Angelina?’” Apparently then said women confided in him about how she felt about her boyfriend’s ex, exactly how many children she planned to have, what her father did to piss her off so badly, and where and when her super-secret wedding was, but it wasn’t actually that interesting, so Friedman forgot.
