The East Coast is currently facing the wrath of Hurricane Sandy, and Bravo HQ is right in the bullseye of the storm that's garnered some awesome monikers: Frankenstorm, Snowicane, Snow'easter ... no matter what you call it, it's here and is expected to be nasty. So, because we're all hunkering down to ride out the storm, we asked some East Coast stars of Bravo what would be in their hurricane preparedness kits.
Because we didn't want token answers of flashlights, canned food and so forth (all of those things are essential), we asked them to keep it interesting -- less practical and more light-hearted. Their answers did not disappoint. Here's what they told us:
Andy Cohen: "Snoopy, chocolate and Don Julio."
Greg Bennett: "My Sandy Survival Kit includes: the Harry Potter box set movies 1-7.2, Sweatpants, Albie Manzo's copy of the Shaun T Insanity Workout dvd's, and a giant box of my feelings to eat."
Sonja Morgan: "When I ready myself for a hurricane, since my friend Irene, I ready my buckets and I have my plumber on speed dial! Of course this means I'll need a batch of brownies and to hold his tools for him, because these guys need a lot of attention. I think I might need the new iPad mini so I can travel floor to floor as we check for damage and still be able to check my incoming Sonja In The City parties."
Joanna Krupa: "Some food and some self-defense in case you have to fend for yourself. A shotgun and a revolver, maybe."
Kathy Wakile: "I say stock up on wine, candles, picnic food & board games -- especially Twister!!
Lisa Hochstein: "A charged phone, a charged computer , an external battery, candles, an iPod, my dogs and my husband Lenny."
Melissa Gorga: "Fruit Roll-Ups, Voli vodka and my son joey's green blanket -- he can't sleep without it."
Karent Sierra: "George Clooney" (yes, that was her answer.)
