The Illinois senator made a surprise appearance last night on Letterman, appearing on the North Salem resident’s show via satellite to deliver the “Top 10 Interesting Facts About Barack Obama.”
10. My first act as President will be to stop the fighting between Lauren and Heidi on “The Hills.”
8. When I tell my kids to clean their room. I finish with, ‘I’m Barack Obama and I approved this message.
5. I have canceled all my appearances the day the “Sex and the City” movie opens.
Enjoy the rest after the break.
Unless you’ve been late in checking out this blog’s updates these last few days (and if you have, Ted Mann will have to lecture you personally), you know that Isaac Mizrahi sat down with Suburbarazzi on Feb. 24 before signing autographs and pitching StriVectin anti-wrinkle cream at the Lord & Taylor branch in Eastchester.
If you missed Monday and Tuesday‘s snippets, click away. If you’re caught up — or even if you’re not — here’s the next part of the interview.
<blockquote><div>YouÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve been on both shows, but gun to your head: (Is) Ã¢â‚¬Å“Ugly BettyÃ¢â‚¬? or Ã¢â‚¬Å“Sex And The CityÃ¢â‚¬? (better)?
Ooh, thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a good questionÃ¢â‚¬Â¦. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Sex And The City.Ã¢â‚¬?
A little more established, a few more seasons?
All right. I can take it. WhatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s wrong and whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s right with my style?
(MizrahiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s entourage and Lord & Taylor personnel utter laughs and Ã¢â‚¬Å“ooohs.Ã¢â‚¬?) Wow. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t think thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s anything wrong. You know people say to me all the time to me, they say, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Oh, gosh, I thought about all day what I was going to wear, because I know I was meeting you.Ã¢â‚¬? And you know, I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t care that much. (The entourage and store personnel laugh.) IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m sorry, but I really donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not saying I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t care enough to say whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s wrong. ThereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s nothing wrong. You look cute today. You look cute.
Thank you. I appreciate that. WhatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the most overrated accessory Ã¢â‚¬â€œ overdone, overrated, over-anything Ã¢â‚¬â€œ out there right now?</div></blockquote>
Mizrahi deliberated for 26 seconds before responding. Read his response to that and his thoughts on fashion critic Mr. (Richard) Blackwell after the break.
