Obama parties with Lohan, Kardashian
Apr 30, 2012 / 1:00 pm
It’s okay... you can admit you’re confused. You’re reading this headline and thinking to yourself “how, or better yet WHY, is the president of the United States hanging out with two of the biggest fame whores on the planet?”
If you haven’t heard, on Saturday night the White House Correspondents’ Dinner was held in Washington, DC and many of the Hollywood elite were in attendance. Okay, you say, but that still doesn’t explain Kim or Lindsay’s presence at such a high-profile shindig. Who would invite these two?
Fox News, that’s who.
Fox News kept up their reputation as the most trusted news source for the real truth (don’t panic, that liquid you see coming from your monitor is just droplets of sarcasm) by bringing a triple dose of fame whore to Saturday night's event. Lindsay Lohan came as a guest of Fox's Greta van Susteren, and Kim and Pimp Mama Kris came as guests of Fox's affiliate somewhere (likely some small burb in the 32nd circle of Hell).
I’m no fashion maven, but I find it hard to pass up the opportunity to comment on how some of these stars choose to adorn themselves. Take a look at Lindsay Lohan. I know she’s lived her life pretty hard, but is this not a face of a quinquagenarian (I’ve always wanted to use that word)? Or is she trying to go for a more-matured Amanda Seyfried look? Dunno…
As for Kim K and Pimp Mama K (below), I think someone should have told them this wasn’t a Christmas dinner. What’s with the colours? And Kris should probably avoid the Brigitte Nielson look, as it’s not working for her.
But wait, you say, where are the pictures of Kim and Lindsay together? Unfortunately I don’t think they exist, unless some pictures materialize from the Secret Service after-party held at the Super 8 in Virginia.
What I really want to know is how the Correspondents’ dinner has turned into another excuse for the stars to party together?
Ask not who was in attendance, ask who WASN’T there – because it seems like everyone got invites to see Jimmy Kimmel skewer Obama and other political players.
A partial list of attendees: George Clooney, Michelle Obama, President Obama, Jimmy Kimmel, Reese Witherspoon, Elizabeth Banks, Paul Rudd, Sofia Vergara, Uggie (the dog from ‘The Artist’) with Diane Sawyer, Aziz Ansari, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Mary J. Blige with her husband Kendu Isaacs, DanRad with Ronan Farrow, Charlize Theron, Kate Hudson, Claire Danes,
Sookeh and Beeal from True Blood Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, Goldie Hawn, Rosario Dawson, Dakota Fanning, Ginnifer Goodwin, Eva Longoria, Zooey Deschanel, Swizz Beak Beats with Alicia Keys, Martha Stewart, Viola Davis with her husband Julius Tennon and Oprah's handmaiden Gayle King.
For those male readers who may have tuned out - their loss for missing the photo right.
Here’s a very-well-dressed Rosario Dawson, whose outfit needs no explanation or accompanying commentary.
And last but not least, for your amusement, Barack Obama’s attempt at standup, followed by Jimmy Kimmel’s solid (if not slightly uneven) political comedy bit.
