We always suspected that hotels let celebrities do whatever they want during their hotel stays and this recent item about Jessica Simpson cooking Thanksgiving dinner, has us convinced.
According to People, JSimp was holed up in her hotel while in town for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade when she decided that she wanted to cook Thanksgiving dinner for her fiancé, Eric Johnson, and his family. The only problem was they are vegans. Oh wait, and she needed an oven.
But apparently, even that was not a problem as the Ritz-Carlton Central Park was ready to accommodate her every vegan Thanksgiving need. (We tracked down paparazzi photos to confirm the hotel.)
Simpson had to get creative to make Thanksgiving dinner for so many people at her hotel. "They had an oven brought into her suite," says the source. "She also used the hotel kitchen."
Her requests aren't all that outrageous as far as celebrity contracts go, but when her needs are are possibly being fulfilled with government money Sarah Palin's demand for three hotel rooms during a speaking engagement seem pretty shocking. So much so California's attorney general Jerry Brown is calling an investigation into the finances of the Stanislaus Foundation at California State University.
Palin is set to speak at the university on June 25 for the school's 50th anniversary. Her demands included a hotel suite near the hotel's campus along with two adjoining rooms. She also requested first class airfare or if they could offer a private plane, it had to be a Lear jet 60 or larger.

So far this week we’ve told you about his-and-hers hotel requests by the rich and famous. It’s not just celebrity songstresses and notorious blowhards who require all sorts of fancy amenities at hotels though.
Not ones to stay away from the spotlight, politicians are demanding hotel guests in an entirely different class—often with safety and conferencing requirements that have whole hotel staffs (and national security forces) scrambling. Then again, sometimes all they want is an Atkins bar and some decaf coffee. Here are a few of our favorites that we came across.
