Dept. of Lame Excuses

Mike today added one to his oddly lengthy litany of reasons he won’t be showing up in Harlem tonight:

“I think today what everybody’s going to be focused on is the Yankees,” he told reporters in Queens.

Or maybe that will be tomorrow. When the Yankees actually have a game.

Fortunately, Bloomberg backer Rosie O’Donnell (!) had another answer ready, Jason Horowitz reports:

“The mayor has two debates scheduled and I think two is enough. We seem to be a gluttonous culture where everyone thinks all you can eat is the best you can do. Frankly, I think two is enough.”

(O’Donnell’s appearance, countering a big group of gay elected officials — including her brother Danny — endorsing Ferrer today, has that same celebrity-obsessed edge as did the Famous Black People From Other States for Bloomberg announcement of last month.)

NOTE: Item slightly corrected, as Rosie’s appearance wasn’t exactly a formal endorsement.

Princess Olympia of Greece and Denmark 

The only daughter of Pavlos and Marie-Chantal, the Crown Prince and Princess of Greece, has quite the Instagram presence. Her posts include front row shots from NYFW, tacos with friends at La Esquina and soft serve at Cha Cha Matcha, all for her 98,000 followers. The Parsons School of Design student is also quite the jet-setter, spending time in New York, London, Los Angeles and Hong Kong (and that's just in the last month). She pulled the ultimate royal move and was rumored to have been dating her godfather's son, Prince Harry. She is his type: blonde and aristocratic, with a major penchant for hipster, Coachella-worthy ensembles, just like his ex Cressida Bonas. The 20-year-old princess counts Hollywood elite Sofia Richie and fellow royal (and cousin) Talita von Fürstenberg as pals. Unlike other New York City college students who celebrated their birthdays dancing on tables at Greek restaurants in the East Village, Princess Olympia spent hers in Mykonos, despite not speaking a word of Greek. Her mother worked for Andy Warhol before marrying into the royal family. Yes, her whole life is all very Gossip Girl.
