With Hurricane Sandy officially over, ventures through her neighborhood and observes the aftermath, Tweeting, “Hope you & your loved ones are safe after the storm.” And due to the expected cleanup all over N.Y.C., the Project Runway host also announced the cancellation of her annual Halloween party, postponing for a later date during the holiday season.
While capturing the storm’s destruction on her shore home, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star couldn’t help but reminisce over the good memories spent at her residence. “My home is still overflowing with friends and family. We’re enjoying Joe’s fine wine, Fabellini and friendship. We’re there for each other,” she shares.
The daytime talk show host expresses her astonishment over the collapse of a building in the city’s Chelsea neighborhood, which was ravished by Sandy’s fierce winds. “The face of the building in Chelsea ripped off yesterday by the storm! What are u seeing around where u live?? ?#Sandy,” she writes.
Despite government warnings to stay inside, the actor braves the storm Monday afternoon for the sake of two extra-adorable friends: a pair of pint-sized pooches, whom he took on a walk through New York City’s Greenwich Village, according to BuzzFeed. Labeled Frankenstorm, the disaster would ultimately be linked to 38 deaths in eight states over the course of 48 hours, reports the New York Times.
The new mom prepares to settle in for the night with 2-month-old Lorenzo, fiancé Jionni LaValle and some storm essentials: her laptop, a DVD and a toasty fire, she Tweets. Much of the Seaside Heights, N.J., boardwalk, an iconic Jersey Shore backdrop, later becomes one of the causalities of Sandy.

With more than six million customers losing power due to flooding, fallen trees and down power lines, according to the New York Times, the Jimmy Kimmel Livewriter captures the city that never sleeps only partially lit.
Still, the show must go on for the Late Night host, who was on the job in midtown Manhattan – without a live in-studio audience. “Here comes the sun!” he wrote hours later, offering his morning view from New York’s Rockefeller Plaza.
Outside N.Y.C., the veteran weatherman reveals the flooded roads of Martha’s Vineyard, where more than 12,000 (including others in Cape Cod, Mass.) were still without power as of noon Tuesday, reports the Cape Cod Times.
Like Snooki, Jennifer Farley also takes in the devastation of the Jersey Shore, where the cast spent four summers. “Sad day,” she writes. Shore Store, the cast-run T-shirt shop, is damaged but still standing, she reports.
Even after the storm passes through the city, the morning talk-show host stays up-to-date in an unconventional way with 11-year-old daughter Lola. “We are listening to news reports on the radio in the Barbie van,” she Tweets. “The only radio that works.”
