As many of you have seen on the news, the celebrity enclave of Montecito, a gorgeous, California seaside town is currently being ravaged by wildfires driven by winds.
If you have ever been to Montecito you would know this is a playground not for the rich but for the wealthy…there is a difference.
Lots of celebrity homes have gone up in flames and it is truly sad to hear about the loss people have suffered.
Montecito is where celebrities like Steven Spielberg have their third or fourth or probably tenth home. Oprah Winfrey also has a 42-acre estate there.
I have seen pictures of Oprah’s house in Montecito with her gardens. Let me just say, I would cry if that house went up in flames, it is that amazing. Unbelievable really.
But when I was watching television the other night and you know how the local news breaks in as a commercial, telling you what’s coming up on the hour, to try and suck you in to watching?
Here’s what the 5 second commercial said…
“Oprah Winfrey’s dogs just evacuated to the Four Season’s Hotel, news at 11.”
I’m sorry, I had to laugh out loud.
I mean all the devastation and that’s the story? Oprah’s dogs off to the fancy-schmancy hotel?
Those lucky mutts.
I wonder if they got the presidential suite.
