André Leon Talley’s Grandmother Thought He Was Sleeping With Diana Vreeland


When Talley interned for Vreeland, she forbade him from going home one Christmas. Talley, who was staying at a friend's apartment, received a call from his grandmother, who said she wanted him to come home right away. "I know exactly what you're doing," she said. "You're sleeping with a white woman!" Actually, he wasn't — he was just eating straight from a can of Hershey's chocolate syrup he found in the pantry. [Racked]
