A GREAT TRADITION: A reader writes: "Speaking of Arianna Huffington, maybe you can settle a bet. My sister says Arianna is the niece of Zsa Zsa and Eva Gabor. I say the resemblance goes no further than their shared level of talent. Can you clear this up?" Great question. Arianna is from Greece, and the Gabor sisters are Hungarian. I don't think they're related, but they do sound alike. All three women married quite well. Talent? As always, it's in the eye of the beholder. For my money, Arianna lacks the dramatic range of the Gabors, especially given the high standard set by Eva's Hooterville years. That said, Arianna is funnier — particularly her politics.
