Should the mayor's girlfriend be allowed in Gracie Mansion?I think it's sexy. I like picturing him getting all nervous and sweaty about his date, talking to a borough president and worrying about whether he'll have time to shower before she arrives. At the same time, Donna Hanover does have to protect her territory, though I'd divorce her just for being in The Vagina Monologues.

Could you live with someone you were divorcing?No, it's a bad idea.

What's the worst living situation you've ever found yourself in?I've never really been in a bad living situation. I once lived in San Francisco with a bunch of gay men and a woman, and she was the one who shaved. That was a good time.

Should the mayor's girlfriend be allowed in Gracie Mansion?No. Donna Hanover has a good case. I used to think he was just a racist, but my girlfriend's Italian and her family hates him too.

Could you live with someone you were divorcing?No, I'd leave.

What's the worst living situation you've ever found yourself in?I was homeless when I first came to New York. I had a little messenger job and I'd stay at the office until it closed and then ride the trains all night. It wasn't obvious that I had no home because I still went to work in the morning.

Should the mayor's girlfriend be allowed in Gracie Mansion?I think that's wrong. That house may be public property, but it is where his wife and kids live.

Could you live with someone you were divorcing?No, but I wouldn't be the one moving out.

What's the worst living situation you've ever found yourself in?It would have to be when I lived in the same building as my landlord. He was forever watching what I did, where I went. One day I was eating cereal on the front steps and he walked up to me and said, "Kim, what are you eating?" At that moment, I knew I had to move.

Should the mayor's girlfriend be allowed in Gracie Mansion?Yes, she is his girlfriend so she has every right to be there and he has every right to take her.

Could you live with someone you were divorcing?At this moment I'm living with my ex-girlfriend. Neither of us can afford to move out.

What's the worst living situation you've ever found yourself in?I'm in it right now.

Should the mayor's girlfriend be allowed in Gracie Mansion?No. He's an authority freak by nature, and this is just another example of him trying to exert his power.

Could you live with someone you were divorcing?No. I'd want to start fresh in my own space.

What's the worst living situation you've ever found yourself in?I had an obsessed girlfriend. When my women friends called the house, she would call them back and say, "I'm Laquan's girlfriend, who are you?"

Should the mayor's girlfriend be allowed in Gracie Mansion?Yes. Gracie Mansion is his residence. The man's going through a lot with his cancer treatments. At the same time, his lack of respect for his wife is pretty long-standing.

Could you live with someone you were divorcing?No. The anxiety level would be too high.

What's the worst living situation you've ever found yourself in?I lived in a Victorian house in Atlanta with a bunch of people committed to living communally. They wanted to have family dinners and they believed in going to bed at eight and getting up at six. They finally asked me to leave and I said, "I was leaving anyway."

Should the mayor's girlfriend be allowed in Gracie Mansion?No. Even though we live in the 21st century, he does hold public office.

Could you live with someone you were divorcing?No. Women want distance.

What's the worst living situation you've ever found yourself in?I just moved out of my mother's apartment. That was probably the worst living situation I've been in.
