We know that celebrities are just people with more notoriety and better paychecks. The mudslides in California have acted like the great equalizer because they’ve been affected just like everyone else.
Rob Lowe, Ellen DeGeneres, and Gigi and Bella Hadid all have properties in Montecito, and have been showing the damage on social media. Oprah Winfrey took to The ‘Gram to show images of her neighborhood and her backyard buried in mud.
“What a day! Praying for our community again in Santa Barbara,” Oprah offered. “Woke up to this blazing gas fire. Helicopters rescuing my neighbors. Looking for missing persons.” For her part, Oprah says that she only suffered some minor damage - and owns how that "pales in comparison" to what her neighbors have endured.
