The Real Housewives of Goldman Sachs

Recently by Matt Taibbi: Why Was Goldman Invited to the AIG Bailout Party?
Laura Blankfein and her friend Susan Friedman, wife of another Goldman honcho, Richard Friedman, caused a huge scene at Super Saturday in the Hamptons last weekend when they arrived at the event before the noon start time and balked at waiting in line with the other ticket-holders.
Their behavior was obnoxious. They were screaming, said one witness. Blankfein said she wouldn't wait with people who spend less money than me.
I can't believe I didn't see this before. Laura Blankfein going mental over having to wait on line at a charity dinner this is like the most awesome thing ever. I can just imagine her the next morning, complaining to Lloyd while shining his head with Turtle Wax before he goes off to work.
Meanwhile this is more recent news, apparently:
Police in East Hampton, N.Y., arrested the wife of longtime Goldman Sachs hedge fund guru Ray Iwanowski for drunk driving, according to The New York Post.
Jane Iwanowski, 48, crashed her BMW into a tree in July. A police report stated an intoxicated Iwanowski was unable to walk or stand, when questioned while at a hospital.
Fun times in the fast lane!
