A newly svelte and dolled-up Linda Tripp is being wined and dined by the media, reports The Washington Post, which says the celebrated snitch “had an elegant champagne supper” the other night with NBC correspondent Jamie Gangel. “This was the latest in a series of off-the-record, get-acquainted sessions (Tripp)’s had with TV types, including Mike Wallace and Larry King.” The dinners, according to the Post, “are intended to ‘establish a chemistry simply so that Linda, if and when she chooses to give media interviews, will do so from an informed place,'” said her spokesman Philip Coughter. No deal with any interviewer has been struck.
