Muffie Potter Aston Is A Real Person, Not Some Caricature I Just Made Up

Though who could blame you for not believing me?  From the Atlantic Wire:
Muffie Potter Aston and her friend Jacqueline Weld Drake are two wealthy New York socialites who are so terrified of Bill de Blasio that they are threatening to move  to — gasp — New Jersey. "I fear for New York City if Mr. de Blasio gets elected. He just wants to tax everyone to smithereens," Potter Aston (pictured above) told Women's Wear Daily's Erik Maza during a partwhere people only ate lobsters weaned on foie gras and iced their champagne with cold diamonds honoring Mayor Michael Bloomberg's partner, Diana Taylor.
The kicker, from the New York Times in 2011:
I met Adrienne Vittadini for lunch at Swifty’s. The weather was gorgeous, and I went with Hermès: a black suede fitted jacket with long fringe and nutmeg-colored calf-leather pants. Paired that with Manolo Blahnik ostrich booties and my black Birkin.
Then a trip downtown for a meeting to plan next year’s Rita Hayworth Gala. Back uptown, picked up my daughters at school and changed into my “play clothes” to hang with them: a long-sleeved white Gap tee, khaki Gap pants and a cozy mustard Tse V-neck sweater. 
I just threw up a little in my soul.
