Peter Orszag Has A "Secret" Love Child, Is A Brute, Some People Would Like Us To Believe

We're a little bit late to this, because for the most part we don't care about the love-lives of White House budget directors but whatevs: according the Post Peter Orszag has a "secret" love child, "secret" only because no one at the paper knew about the baby, and presumably not because he has the kid and the mother hiding out in some seedy part of town where no one can find them. Besides being pissed that they weren't invited to the birth, the moral crusaders are also upset because there's a possibility Pedro knocked up the mother, Claire Milonas, last spring, and then left her to shack up with ABC's Bianna Golodryga, who he was engaged to six weeks after the baby was born.

Milonas' tycoon dad, New York-based shipping magnate Spiros Milonas, 82, hit the roof. "He had to be calmed down," recalled one close family friend. Orszag, 41, and Milonas, 39, had been dating for several months when she became pregnant last spring. "Claire told Peter she was pregnant, and he said he'd marry her -- and then something went wrong," a source close to the situation told The Post. Orszag met the stunning Golodryga, 31, at the White House correspondents dinner last May and they've been together ever since. Orszag and Milonas issued a joint statement, saying, "We were in a committed relationship until the spring of 2009. In November, Claire gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. Although we are no longer together, we are both thrilled she is happy and healthy, and we would hope that everyone will respect her privacy."

So maybe he did jilt the baby-momma, maybe he didn't (Milonas is a venture capitalist, Harvard Business School grad and Greek shipping heiress so it's possible she found someone better and ditched poindexter), who knows. The important thing here is that tomorrow we're finally going to hear about the many, many children Larry Summers has up and down the Eastern Seaboard, and the circumstances in which they were conceived.


Nassim Nicholas Taleb's Got Bad News For His Legions Of Soccer Mom Fans

Greek god. Philosopher. Adonis. The only person on earth who has earned the right to have an opinion about anything. All appropriate characterizations of one Nassim Nicholas Taleb, and the way at least three-quarters of all living homo sapiens have described NNT in their conversations with friends and in their diaries. And while his many admirers have surely studied him in great detail in the hopes of one day having the opportunity to unlock his heart or simply bask in his reflected glory for a moment or two, not everyone has a comprehensive list of the things that rev Taleb's engine and, more importantly, that tick him off. Luckily, a recent profile by Chronicle writer Tom Bartlett has produced a near-complete guide to the likes and dislikes of Nassim Nicholas Taleb. Read it, print it out, carry it in your pocket-- but really, consider taking the time to commit it to memory. Your chance may only come along once and you don't want to fuck it up by fumbling around your notes because you can't remember what his thoughts are on "bourgeois bohemian bonus earners" or fruit.
