The New York Daily News is reporting that downtown fashion label Heatherette, the glittery hot-tranny-mess lovechild of Richie Rich and Traver Rains, has thrown in the bedazzled towel. According to the story, Rich and Rains have gone separate ways.
Rich, who has reportedly started a solo line called "Rox and Riley" after his dogs, allegedly wants to move to LA to pursue music and television opportunities while writing a book about club kids (a la Party Monster). A source told the Daily News that Rains "can't deal with Richie anymore."
While Heatherette experienced a bit of a financial hiccup at the beginning of the year and pulled out of Fashion Week, things appeared back on track with the launch of their makeup collection in collaboration with M.A.C Cosmetics just last month.
What is Fashion Week without the circus and stampede of trannies, celebrities and supermodels that is Heatherette's show? Say it ain't so, Richie and Traver! Comfort us and tell us this is all a bunch of lies and we won't have to live without sequins, glitter and pancake makeup!
In times of crisis like this, it's best to ask: What would Amanda Lepore do?
