Andy Warhol and Ingrid Superstar
Andy Warhol (Wed., Feb. 4, 1987):
"And the Post had a picture of Ingrid Superstar with a big story: "Warhol Star Vanishes." I thought she was going to be at the reunion Billy Name is setting up. I wonder if Gerard gave this to the papers just to get his name in. Brigid never even told me they called about her. I would've cared that Ingrid was missing. People magazine had been calling because they're doing a story on Ivy Nicholson and they wanted me to give a quote and for her I did tell Brigid to tell People we'd "never heard of her," but that was only because it was Ivy - Ingrid I would've cared about. But I bet something did happen to her. It said she went out for a pack of cigarettes and never came back. This is in upstate New York." (AWD800)
The reference Warhol makes to the reunion that Billy Name was setting up refers to a telephone conversation he had with Billy the previous week.
Andy Warhol (Mon., Jan. 26, 1987):
"Got home and at 12:00 the phone rang and it was Billy Name. Have I forgotten to say that he's been calling? He's up there in Poughkeepsie and he's organizing a sixties reunion and he has like three jobs up there, deputy sheriff and everything, and he was just chattering away - "You know how deeply I love you, honey" - about how Gerard is coming up and Ingrid Superstar and how I'd be picked up and taken to Stephen Shore's house - he works at Bard College now - and all this stuff. But I'm going to just have to tell Billy that I can't face the past. And I'd walked into the house and didn't look where I stepped and so I was talking to him with dog poop all over my shoes."
