Irony: Mia Farrow Said to Be Upset Woody Allen Finally Using Her Own Tactics Against Her


Page Six reports that tomorrow’s New York magazine will have a feature on Soon Yi Previn Allen, daughter of Mia Farrow, and wife of Woody Allen for 25 years. She’s also the mother of Woody’s two grown daughters.

The report claims that Farrow and her daughter Dylan are upset because the author of the piece is a friend of Woody’s, Daphne Merkin.

How hilarious is that?Farrow regularly uses her pals to attack Woody. New York Times writer Nick Kristof, one of her best friends, used his op-ed space in the paper a couple of years and gave Dylan a forum to character assassinate Woody. In Vanity Fair, her buddy Maureen Orth made up the whole Frank Sinatra is Ronan Farrow’s father canard as Mia’s behest.

Well, Farrows, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander, as they say. Now Soon Yi will set the record straight. Maybe Amazon Studios will take what she has to say seriously and release Woody’s new movie. The worst kind of blacklisting has been served on Woody, and he doesn’t deserve it.
