Which VIP had the best weekend?

A music festival, gay-rights gala, and military marathon capped off the end-of-the-week amusement for celebs like Spike Mendelsohn, Jennifer Hudson and Sean Astin.

Campy video draws boos at elite gathering of the top intelligence community

The annual gala thrown by the OSS Society, the organization that keeps alive the memory of the defunct spy agency, is typically an elite gathering of the highest echelons of the intelligence community.

Five congressional candidates who could make Capitol Hill interesting

As totally unbiased journalists, we have zero political agenda and wouldn’t in a million years dream of backing a political candidate. But as gossips, we can’t help but root for a freshman class in Congress that’s packed with fresh faces and interesting characters — regardless of their party. And as the midterm elections near, we’re ever hopeful […]

No, George Clooney is not running for president

As much as it pains us to stick a fork in this persistent and oh-so irresistible rumor, here goes: Sorry America, but George Clooney will not be president of the United States. Perhaps the actor will someday play the commander-in-chief in a movie. We’d go see that! But let’s just accept the fact that he won’t answer to “Mr. President” in […]

Anthony Weiner isn’t a fan of ‘House of Cards.’ Same goes for ‘Homeland.’

In a recent interview, Anthony Weiner, the 50-year-old former congressman turned “house-husband” (his words), revealed that he doesn’t much miss the real or the fake Washington. “I watched the first season of ‘House of Cards.’ It got so ridiculously implausible that I couldn’t stick with it. Same way with ‘Homeland,’ after the first season I […]

What we wished Madeleine Albright had said to Conan O’Brien: ‘Homey, don’t play dat’

Well that escalated quickly. The next time you decide to tweet a seasonal (and teeny bit sexiest) punchline at a former secretary of state, just… don’t. Especially if the woman in question is one Madeleine Albright, who recently put Conan O’Brien (nay, the world) on notice: Don’t come for me, boo. It all started rather innocently. O’Brien, […]

Matthew McConaughey: Redskins name will change (he wishes it wouldn’t!)

Actor Matthew McConaughey is a big Redskins fan.

Now, the famous fan has waded into the heated debate over whether the team should change its name. In an interview in […]

5 Minutes with Aisha Tyler

There’s the briefest moment — the faintest whiff of satisfaction – when upon meeting comedian Aisha Tyler for the first time, you can almost look the 6-foot-tall talk show host in the eyes. But don’t kid yourself. The 44-year-old, who’s on her way to host the annual USO gala on Friday, has on flats under that floor-length Badgley Mischka […]

Jerry Seinfeld does not like Jay Leno’s signature denim-on-denim look

Jay Leno’s famous friends and colleagues have plenty of nice things to say about his comedic skills, his mastery of the monologue, and his work ethic. But what about the longtime “Tonight Show” host’s sartorial sense? When he’s not onstage or on camera, where he often wears conservative suits and ties, Leno almost always sports a signature ensemble of jeans […]

Brad, Jay and Jimmy all hit up the D.C. parties you missed

The number of celebrities roaming around D.C. this past week nearly rivaled that of the White House Correspondents’s Dinner weekend thats brings Hollywood to Washington every spring.

‘Sharknado’ alert! The campy franchise is coming to D.C.
