It turns out Mayor Bloomberg shares a lot more in common with Sarah Jessica Parker than we ever imagined: in a Talk Of The Town piece in this week's New Yorker, Bloomberg discusses his fondness for high heels: "I like women and I think that they look stunning in high heels—not that they look bad without high heels. I wouldn't criticize anybody," Bloomberg reportedly said. "But, if I were a woman, I think I would wear high heels."

For all you Bloomberg fanatics out there, this is hardly a surprise: Hizzoner's passion for a sturdy pair of Manolo Blahnik's came to light last January in the NY Magazine profile of Christine Quinn, when she revealed that Bloomberg “likes me in high heels" and would "yell at me" for wearing flats.

While Bloomberg may have a high heel fetish worthy of Rex Ryan, he doesn't have any desire to start wearing them right now: "I don't care if a woman is taller than me, with or without heels," he told the New Yorker. "I just like women." Hmm, some might say that he doth protest a bit too much on that height stuff.
