CHRIS CUOMO'S BEEF WITH PRINCE GEORGE'S CHRISTENING OUTFIT

After seeing a picture of Prince George in his christening outfit, CNN's Chris Cuomo calls his mother on-air to chat about the baby being in a 'dress.'

Cuomo says, "I’m happy for them, it’s a healthy baby, but it’s a boy. He’s in a dress."

This is some of how the phone conversation went down:

Cuomo: “Was I in a dress when I got christened?

Mom: Yes, it was a tradition in the family also. It’s a communion garb, you don’t call it a dress.

Cuomo: Well, it looks like a dress.

Mom: No, it’s just a flowing thing for the baby, you know. So the baby is able to move nicely. Pants are confining, Christopher. It’s just a baby ... It’s a traditional ceremonial thing and you really want the baby to look like all the other children.

CAMPUS CRACKS DOWN ON COSTUMES

Halloween is less than a week away, and the dean the University of Colorado Boulder, Christina Gonzalez, is taking steps to make sure costumes on her campus - are politically correct.

Gonzalez wrote a letter to students and condemned several disguises she considers offensive, stereotypical or overly sexual, CNN’s Nischelle Turner reports.

Some of the items on her no list, are blackface costumes, sombreros, geishas, cowboys and Indians.

“She also condemned having theme parties like hillbilly parties or ghetto parties because she said, she wants the students to think about the impact that this can have on the community.”

THE HUNT FOR A BOURBON THIEF 

Authorities in Kentucky might have a new clue as they try to track down some super-expensive and rare bourbon.

They're hoping surveillance video will help them identify a person of interest as nearly two hundred bottles of Pappy Van Winkle were stolen last week from a distillery. That's about $26,000 worth of missing booze!
