    Dear Gossips, Officials confirmed yesterday that 25% of the homes in the Florida Keys have been destroyed and 65% have sustained major damage. Some of those residents are regular readers of this site. A few of them have been readers of this site for many, many years, since the very…

Officials confirmed yesterday that 25% of the homes in the Florida Keys have been destroyed and 65% have sustained major damage. Some of those residents are regular readers of this site. A few of them have been readers of this site for many, many years, since the very beginning. Like Dr Cher who wrote to me on Monday to tell me that her home has been flooded and that her friends have lost everything because “Hurricane Irma was a f-cking bitch”.

Recovery efforts are now underway in Florida. If you would like to help and/or give, Vox posted a good summary of recommendations earlier this week with a list of charitable organisations. This is what the Canadian Red Cross is doing to help.

Last night, celebrities in New York and Los Angeles raised over $14 million during the Hand In Hand: A Benefit For Hurricane Relief one hour telethon that streamed on all the major networks and online. Photos from the event are attached. My favourite, of course, is Julia Roberts on the phone. Look at this face! How does this face sound on the phone when you’re on the other end?

Julia was paired with her old friend George Clooney who was also manning the phones. George, at one point, posed for a photo with Cher!

And he was in another group shot with Justin Bieber:

Justin led a group prayer during the show. And he met Oprah.

And he might show up in an Adam Sandler movie if he hasn’t already:

To make a donation to Hand In Hand please call 1-800-258-6000 or text GIVE to 80777.


I've attached a ton of photos from the telethon below. Click through to see them all.

Yours in gossip,
