- Michaels doesn’t deny the similarities, but says she has been wearing glasses and her hair up for years — long before the look became popularized by the Alaska governor.
“If you’ve seen me on the news for the past few years, you’ve seen that I wear my hair up regularly,” said Michaels. “I’ve been wearing it like that all my life. That’s what I keep telling people.”
One viewer even called in to inform Michaels that she was sure she was trying to blatantly emulate Palin — but that she was doing a bad job of it.
“A woman actually called one night and said ‘What, is this the Kmart version of Sarah Palin, with your cheap plastic glasses?’” she said.
