Celebrities have implored their friends, family, and fans to stay safe as it descends on the east coast,’ Lindsay Lohan’ doesn’t seem to understand the big deal over the ferocious superstorm Sandy that so far lashed through the northeastern United States early Monday and was responsible for at least 13 deaths in the United States. Millions of easterner’s were jeft in the dark as violent winds downed trees and powerlines and sent powerfull storm surges, as high as nearly 14 feet in New York City, into the streets & subways.
‘Jessica Alba’ told reporters today, “We have friends in New York. We are constantly being updated with what is going on in the news.” “I am now on the way to the airport and getting updates, we want everyone to be safe and we hope the damage isn’t as bad as they are anticipating.” The vast and powerful storm still proved to be lethal, was downgraded from a hurricane to a post tropical storm last night before it made landfall at 8pm.
“30 Rocks”, ‘Alec Baldwin’ was helping his dogs take care of business by taking it for a walk in Manhattan. ‘Whoopi Goldberg’, said “Here’s hoping we all make it thru the storm better people, friends, mothers fathers sisters & brothers & greatfull for days the days we have.” ‘Melissa Joan Hart’, replied “I have at least 2 family members in evacuation zones that haven’t left and 2 more in the center of Sandy. Praying they stay safe!” Also quoted, ‘Joy Behar’, “Everything is cancelled. I’m in my pajamas cooking. I already made meatloaf and baked rigatoni. Stay safe & stay dry from storm Sandy” Comics like ‘Ricky Gervais’ chimed in “This “Sandy” who’s on TV all the time and is blowing the entire east coast, I assume she’s a Kardashian right?”
Monday nite, in Atlantic City, N.J., Atlantic City officials implemented an emergency curfew from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. and a travel ban has been put in effect. New Jersey ‘Gov. Chris Christie’ had harsh words for Atlantic City’ Mayor Lorenzo Langford’, who told residents they could shelter in place instead of moving inland.Christie told residents that it was now too dangerous for crews to go in to rescue people who chose to stay,and they would have to “ride out the storm” and wait until daylight.”For those people who ignored my warnings, this is what you have to deal with now,” the clearly irked governor said.
With a massive storm approaching, that ‘Lindsay Lohan’ dubed “Hurricane Sassy,” New Yorkers’ being either evacuated were encouraged to stay in their homes, “CBS,” “The Late Show” and ‘NBC,’ ‘Late Night’ taped this afternoon without audiences. Leaving, ‘David Letterman’ and ‘Jimmy Fallon’ to wise crack and with no one’s around to laugh, and they were still funny. Even though thousands of East Coasters’ had lost power by the time the shows aired and local newscasts were providing constant storm coverage.
Letterman kicked off his monologue, “We’re in the middle of Hurricane Sandy and we have no studio audience, “but we do have quite a show for you tonight. Thank you for joining us in the Ed Sullivan Shelter.” Dave mentioned to Paul Schaffer that Sandy was being tagged “one of the worst storms in U.S history,” and that experts were expecting 90 mile-per-hour winds and 12 inches of rain. Landfall was expected in Delaware and New Jersey at high tide, aided by the full moon. “So gang,””If I were home, I’d be boarding up your television sets, because this is the stuff that’s gonna hurt somebody,” Then for David Letterman’s ‘Late Show’s’ Top-Ten List, Among the Top 10 Rejected Names for the Storm: #5..Al Frankenstorm,#4..Trumpical Storm, #3…Wetzilla, #2…iPaddle and the number #1 choice…Oprah Windy.
Across town’ Jimmy Fallon’ quiped,”Theater owners had to cancel all Broadway shows today,” he said. “Many performers were having trouble making it into the city. You could tell by that one show, Blue Man Guy.” Visiting Manhattan this week on hold due to weather conditions are New York-set The Daily Show With Jon Stewart and, ‘The Colbert Report’, as well as ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’—which tapes in L.A. but just happens to be in New York this week for a special run, and will as soon as the storm clouds pass. In the sincere words of ‘Jimmy Fallon’, as long as our audience is home and safe, we’re doing our best show anyway. It’ll be a fun “LateNight”!
And in the famous words of ‘Bette Midler’, star of Halloween classic “Hocus Pocus,” “Batten down the hatches!! I’m baking macaroons for the duration,of ferocious superstorm Sandy 2012, Hope it’s over before Hulaween!!!! Eeeeeeekkkk!!”
