Let them eat edible underwear!
The Victoria’s Secret show must go on — even if it means kicking out hardworking men and women in uniform.
Dozens of National Guardsmen, and Army and Air Force personnel who have been sleeping at Manhattan’s Lexington Armory in between hurricane-relief shifts are being booted — to make room for Victoria’s Secret models in anticipation of Wednesday’s runway show.
About 300 uniformed personnel have been bunking down at the armory at various times since Sandy hit.
But their numbers will be reduced to 60 by Wednesday for the event, which is featuring Rihanna and Justin Bieber.
Obviously such important folks like Rihanna and Bieber take priority over those trying to save lives.
Last night, about 150 of the personnel were crammed into a space meant for 50 as Victora’s Secret workers moved in equipment and set up temporary dressing rooms.
A massive transformer generator was being brought in for the show, and a huge Sony video board was hauled to the site.
So that generator could help freezing New Yorkers, but hey, it’s no big deal. It’s only around 30 degrees right now.
