Woody and Soon-Yi: The Best NYC Gossip Ever!

Categories: Featured, Gossip

New York magazine asked me for quotes about the best piece of gossip in New York City history, knowing I was their man for something so salacious yet historic.

I complied, for p.r.'s sake, giving the top slot to the 1992 hookup of film genius Woody Allen with Mia Farrow's adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn, which mamma Mia discovered via that old cliche, naked photos.

My quotes:

"The No. 1 juiciest bit of gossip and scandal, because it became a topic of watercooler conversation for months--for years!--would have to be the revelation of Woody's relationship with Soon-Yi.

"Everybody loves a triangle, but this one was deliciously sick, from the dark side of everyone's imagination:

"The wronged woman (Mia Farrow), the over-entitled man (Allen, betraying his nerdy, lovable persona), and the other woman, who, in this case, was Mia's adopted daughter.

"I remember O.J. Simpson saying to me at the time (and this was before his own scandal), 'Go Woody! Get some!' He was in the minority.

"Of course, Woody got the last laugh: They're still together!"

Yeah, why would Mia have been so devastated if she weren't the wronged woman?

Only a moron would NOT see this as a triangle even if they were technically over as a couple. Mia was still the wronged woman. Soon Yi was still the other woman.

And like most gossip, you got it completely wrong. Woody and Mia had ended their relationship long before this. The only reason they were still in contact was for the sake of their son. There never was any triangle. And like you said, they're still together, so it wasn't just some May-December fling. The only scandal was in your perverted imagination.

Remember the family portrait that Mia sent to Woody with broken toothpicks stuck though the hearts of everyone in the photo? It was supposed to symbolize how he broke all their hearts. Jesus Christ, was that creepy and disturbing!

Yes, it just didn't jive with the "across the Park, waving" Woody & Mia. It was totally out of left field.

Woody's films sucked after the revelation. I mean, his shit nowadays makes Manhattan Murder Mystery look like...Manhattan.If you can find it, Howard Stern's sympathetic, detailed interview w/ Mia Farrow is pretty amazing.
