Chellie Pingree Insists Divorce Won’t Cramp Nebo Lodge’s Style

Her separation from billionaire spouse Donald Sussman will in no way mean lights out for Nebo Lodge, an aide to Rep. Chellie Pingree assured HOH Wednesday.

The Maine Democrat established the gourmet retreat more than a decade ago and has since assembled a closely knit group — including renowned chef Amanda Hallowell and Pingree’s eldest daughter, Hannah, who serves as general manager — to oversee the homey establishment.  

Per Team Pingree, all of that is expected to remain undisturbed, even after the four-term lawmaker disentangles herself from her husband’s myriad financial holdings.  

“Rep. Pingree owns Nebo and nothing will change. They've got a great team on North Haven and it will continue to operate as it has,” Pingree spokesman Willy Ritch stated.  

This hired mouth may have to race back up north next summer, just to make sure everything remains on the up and up.
