Today in celebrity gossip: We must not forget how the rich and famous have bravely endured Hurricane Sandy, Michelle Duggar has a brand new look, and Taylor and Conor still have a chance.
Oh dear. Oh dear me. It seems that some of those hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy, wealthy celebrities, are still feeling the affects of the super storm. Even our governor, Andrew Cuomo, is still without power, according to his live-in lady love, Sandra Lee. The celebrity opener of prepared foods and mixer of bizarre, cream-based cocktails tells Page Six, "No one has power. Andrew has been eating cold, hard-boiled eggs. I know, because I make it for him." Oh my goodness! Apparently everyone in their town, New Castle, is without power. How will Sandra Lee and Andrew Cuomo cope? "We have a generator." Oh. So... You do have power? Hm. Still, I'm sure it's difficult. But not as difficult as it is for Calvin Klein, who cannot move back into his $20 million Perry Street triplex for up to six months due to water damage in the building's basement. My god. I had no idea the storm had ravaged our city so. How is Calvin coping? He has "sought refuge in SoHo." Terrible, just terrible. Please, if you can, donate to relief efforts and write on the check "To be used at the Prince Street Dean & DeLuca by Mr. C. Klein." It's important to make sure your money goes to the right place. Meanwhile, most everyone else in New York City is doing just fine.[Page Six, Page Six]
Alert alert! Michelle Duggar has a new haircut! Alert alert! It's her first new hairstyle in 40 years, she says! Yes, the TLC (Television's Lonely Carnival) personality and mother of 19 home-schooled angels let her daughters treat her to a day of pampering for her birthday and it produced a new straight blowout 'do with only a modest hint of bangs. That's quite unlike Michelle's old style, which was a perm curl thing with big teased bangs that just went swimmingly with her long shapeless dresses and sensible clodhoppers. Now she's a whole new woman and she loves her look. Well, actually, she loves that her husband loves it. Yeah: "I know Jim Bob likes it long and I am trying to impress him — what he likes is what I want." Yup. That's how it is in the Duggar household. One would hope that this whole makeover adventure will be featured in an upcoming episode, but who knows. I'm sure next season's got a pretty full schedule of the family traveling to mysterious compounds to watch weddings between two 19-year-olds who've never held hands, so they might not be able to squeeze in the makeover. Fingers crossed, though! Or, wait, is that witchcraft? Crossing your fingers? Probably. [People]
