The turkey won’t be the only star at the Thanksgiving table for some Westchester families.
Mary J. Blige:
There’s no place like home for “The Wiz” star Mary J. Blige. The Yonkers-raised singer told talk show host Wendy Williams she plans to celebrate Thanksgiving locally with her family.
“They’re still in Westchester,” she said. “I’m going to my mom’s because I’m [in New York] for rehearsals for “The Wiz,” so I’m going to be here for Thanksgiving. I am going to her house.”
Blige will play the Wicked Witch of the West in NBC’s “The Wiz Live” on Dec. 4.
The Willis Family:
Does Bruce Willis plan to dine hard at his home in Bedford? “Being on the East Coast this year we are looking at some cold days ahead and spending some good time indoors over that Thanksgiving week, which means I’ll need some creative ideas to lure my kids away from the TV,” the “Die Hard” star’s wife Emma Heming-Willis wrote on her parenting blog. Heming-Willis plans to keep their daughters Evelyn and Mabel busy with crafting projects.
Sounds like it’s going to be a full house at the Clinton home in Chappaqua. “Starting about 15 years ago now, we began to invite a lot of Chelsea’s friends who were foreigners and they had never heard of Thanksgiving,” presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said during a “Live with Kelly and Michael” interview last week. “And then we started to invite more young Americans who were her friends who couldn’t go home because their work didn’t let them or whatever the reason would be. So we have about 30 people and they are from all over the world plus all over America…A lot of them we only see once a year at Thanksgiving, so we have just the greatest extended family experience. And now they’re coming back with their children, so it just is a special time.”
Nobody does Thanksgiving like domestic diva Martha Stewart. The Bedford resident revealed on her blog that she has “been very busy getting ready for America’s most important meal.” And of course, getting ready includes shopping. “Earlier in the day, I visited John Boy’s Outpost, a charming shop in Bedford owned by John Ubaldo – a businessman gone farmer who is passionate about selling and providing fresh, organic edibles from his farm, and other small farms and businesses in the area,” she wrote Tuesday. “If you’re ever in the neighborhood, I highly recommend you stop in at the Outpost – you’ll love it.”
The talk show host, who lives in Irvington, says she will be celebrating without one of her children. “One of my kids will not be coming home for Thanksgiving,” the disappointed mom said on her daytime talk show. “Now that they’re older, they don’t always come back. (My middle son) has a job far away and he has to work. He didn’t get Thanksgiving off.”
