“And then at the office there was the big problem with Halston. He called Fred to say that Victor’s been going around saying that if Halston didn’t pay us the money he owes the the paintings he bought from us, that he, Victor, would repossess them and sell them to Elsa Peretti. Halston asked Fred if we’d put Victor up to it. Fred said no. And Halston’s fired everyone at the house. all since last weekend. And he’s having trouble with his line, he can’t work, he’s been so upset. The other night in the basement of 54 there was a huge fight that Elsa started - she was attacking Steve and calling everybody faggots and it was really bad, I guess. I wasn’t there. Bob finally got her to leave with him. It’s enough to make you want to stay home for the rest of your life. She was smashing glasses and everything. So between Victor and Elsa, Halston’s really a wreck.”
