Why Modeling Isn't Fun: ‘Vogue’ Pays Zilch, and People Laugh at You

When up-and-coming model Rosie Mortimer did her first Vogue shoot for Mario Testino, the magazine didn't even pay her. She explains in today's Telegraph that this was one of many reasons she decided to quit the biz, aside from the fact that becoming a supermodel is about as common as Anna Wintour going out in public in a ponytail.

Murray Hill Restaurant Set to Make Cinematic Debut

What would Katz's Deli be without When Harry Met Sally? Tom's Restaurant without Seinfeld? Trio, without, well, Trio? If the last reference eludes you, that's because the shoot for director Danny Aiello III's short film is just now wrapping up at the Croatian-owned Italian eatery in Murray Hill. "The movie is named for the bar, as well as for the trio of characters in the bar," producer-star Jennifer Bogush tells us. "It's about a young woman who is haunted by the memory of her ex-boyfriend and can't move on with her life, but it's actually much better than that sounds." Bogush, who knows the owner, wrote the script herself after tiring of auditioning for unappealing projects — which might be why she plays the lead. Aiello — whose father starred as a Tribeca restaurant owner in the movie Dinner Rush — came on board, and they hired David Fumero (One Life to Live) and Amy Carlson (Third Watch, Law & Order: Trial by Jury) as cast members. Bogush, who plans to take the film to festivals like Telluride and Cannes, hopes "the short version will be a vehicle for the feature length for us … I am in the midst of writing that." Say you saw it first by (quietly) stopping by the shoot this weekend — though we're sorry to report there's no orgasm scene. — Lori Fradkin
