Manolo asked, whose shoes?
Manolo answers, it is the Jewel!
Congratulations to the Manolo’s internet friend, the Carole, who the first and only person to correctly identify this week’s personage of note.
Manolo loves the shoes!
The Jewel appears to have picked up the additional facet or two around the waist and thighs. Or is it the awful frock that does her no justice?
Hey! My intuition led me in the right direction! (Happy dance.) And I think the Jewel rocks that frock. It is more the unfortunate pose and camera angle that does her injustice.
Mea culpa. One tries to avoid celebrity gossip (I let the Manolo do the heavy lifting). Turns out that Jewel is with child.
I found this out today at the doctor’s office waiting room. Honest.
She sang with her dad at a benefit for my sister, whose house had burned down. I think she was about 11 or 12. Man, that kid could yodel. That was when she was growing up in Homer, Alaska. Her grandfather was an old Swiss guy who was very fond of the ladies, both young and old, and who told me the secret to his longevity was eating the entirety of an apple – core, seeds and all.
She’s come a long way from living in a log house with an outhouse, that’s for sure.
