• Even if Hillary Clinton wins the race for White House, it turns out she won’t be selling her Chappaqua white house (above). So said its current primary resident, Bill, to CNN. [Politics on the Hudson]

• Richard Gere continues to piss off prudes in India. Witness the open letter to the Pound Ridge resident published in the Hindustan Times. Here, just one choice excerpt: “Moreover, in case you do commit a rape, the law is likely to take a while to catch up with you because unlike kissing in public there are so many rapes happening everyday. And then you are likely to get off on a technicality.”

• Lee Woodruff will be coming to the County Center this Saturday. The wife of ABC reporter and Rye resident Bob Woodruff, who was nearly killed by an IED attack in Iraq, will speak about how she and her family overcame the tragedy at the fourth Every Woman’s Conference on May 12. The event will run from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the County Center in White Plains ($10 conference admission, $5 childcare, call 914-995-5972 to register).

• Fashion faceoff time! Both People mag and teamsugar.com spotted Eva Longoria and Hayden Panettiere wearing the same summery yellow-and-white mini from NeimanMarcus.com (cost $396). Clearly, you gotta vote for the Rockland’s hometown hero, Hayden. Share your thoughts on why she looks better on People, or just go to teamsugar and vote for the Palisades native. Currently she’s got a commanding lead with 80 percent of the vote.

• Speaking of Hayden Panettiere … her advice to Paris Hilton: “Don’t drink and drive.” [TMZ]
