Yet at the same time, the editorial manager stated, she had an issue with the Sackler family’s reputation.
A big name beautician who likewise declined the welcome concurs: “With such an excess of going on with her family, wouldn’t she be able to hold up another season?”
The Sacklers — the group of Joss’ better half, David — have made billions off pharmaceuticals including OxyContin.
