Celebrity Do-Gooders. Happy to (O)blige

June 17, 2008 • Girl Gab (Gossip)


If you don’t like Mary J. Blige now, you sure will after you read this recent shopping tidbit. According to todays’ NY Post Page Six the singer has a huge heart (like her record sales). Last week, Blige was at the Diane von Furstenberg store in NYC’s Meatpacking District when she overheard a girl having a problem at the register. A spy said, "The girl had a dress on hold that she loved, and the bill was $900. She thought it was only $500, and she couldn’t afford it." Apparently, Blige told the saleswoman, "Go get the girl. I want to pay for the balance on the dress." The customer at first graciously declined Blige’s offer but gave in when Blige insisted , "I know what it’s like to want something and not be able to have it. I insist." The customer wanted to send her a check for the balance, but Blige said, "Just enjoy it. I’m blessed, so let me do this."

What a class act! We all should have a retail guardian angel! I’m still looking for mine!
