Is Anthony Malkin wondering why his building has been plagued by bed bugs and skyline competition? According to the Daily News, the drama can be chalked up to the "Curse of the Mama." That's right, by refusing to light the top of the Empire State Building on Thursday in honor of Mother Teresa's 100th birthday, the building and its owner were punished with bed bugs and real estate developments. But Malkin isn't backing down; he now says the building will be lit up red, white and blue in honor of the anniversary of women's suffrage. Take that, nun ghosts!
