Braves catcher A.J. Pierzynski gives Washington fan an early Mother’s Day present

Jonesing for a jolt of post-Mother’s Day feels? This story should do the trick. On Saturday night, Atlanta Braves catcher A.J. Pierzynski took his mom out for a fancy pre-Mother’s Day dinner at Béarnaise on Capitol Hill. Nothing too shocking there, we know. Pierzynski was in town for the Braves’ series against the Nats and his mother, Mary Jane Harrelson, came […]

The Scene: The Phillips Collection’s 2015 Gala

Guided by the beats of a Japanese taiko drum, on Friday night, Washington’s well heeled braved Northeast’s historic and newly hip warehouse district for The Phillips Collection’s 2015 Gala, “Postcards From Japan.” Hundreds showed up at Union...Show More Summary

Ciara and Russell Wilson are still going strong

Hey isn’t that... our new favorite Washington-official couple, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and singer Ciara, out at the Palm on Friday night? A tipster tells us that Ciara and a few of her friends settled into the restaurant’s famous power booth (it’s in the back and away from prying iPhones) about 10 p.m. The […]

Here’s the actor cast as a young Barack Obama in upcoming flick ‘Southside With You’

Everyone from Will Smith to Drake has been angling to play President Obama on the silver screen, but it looks like the first crack at a big role playing POTUS will go to a relative unknown. Actor Parker Sawyers, perhaps best known for his turn as “Interrogator on Monitor” in “Zero Dark Thirty” will play a […]

Actor James Franco wants everyone to know how much he loved McDonald’s

The headline pretty much wrote itself. On Thursday, actor James Franco — he of the movie that almost wasn’t and that horrible Oscar hosting gig that sadly was — wrote a love letter (published by Post Everything) to burger giant McDonald’s where he worked briefly as a teenaged struggling actor-slash-college dropout. [McDonald’s was there for me when no one […]

Why so few celebrities on Capitol Hill these days?

If you had closed your eyes and just listened to the snapping sounds of cameras during a Senate hearing on global health issues Wednesday, you might have thought you were on a red carpet and not a stately flag-ringed room in the Dirksen Senate Office Building with a bunch of guys in bad suits. The media scrum was […]

Shakespeare Theatre director Michael Kahn is tying the knot

Shakespeare Theatre artistic director Michael Kahn is finally heeding the Bard’s command to “get thee a good husband” (appropriately, that’s from “All’s Well That Ends Well,” natch) and tying the knot with his partner, New York-based interior designer Charles Mitchem. “I love the look on people’s faces when I say I’m getting married,” Kahn tells us. After […]

Actor Christoph Waltz will direct and star in ‘The Worst Marriage in Georgetown’

Ripping his plot straight from the headlines (and every single society grand dame’s nightmares), Austrian actor Christoph Waltz will direct and star in the film, “The Worst Marriage in Georgetown.” The true crime story is based on the murder of Washington socialite Viola Drath, who was killed in her Georgetown rowhouse by her much younger husband, Albrecht […]

Hey isn’t that … actress-activist-philanthropist Eva Longoria jetting into D.C. for an action-packed 48-hours earlier this week? Monday evening, Longoria and other notables like Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro, attended the Latino Victory Foundation’s inaugural “Latino Talks” at the Hamilton.

5 minutes with Idina Menzel

Idina Menzel is a lot quieter in person than you’d expect. Offstage, the Broadway vet whose booming voice is responsible for that song your 7-year-old niece will. not. stop. singing speaks like a mere mortal. And when we caught up with Menzel on Wednesday just before she was to be honored at USA Today’s annual Make a Difference luncheon, […]

Cause Celeb: Elton John on AIDS funding

Celeb: Elton John (a.k.a. Sir Elton, a.k.a. the Rocket man), whose conservative suit said “dignified lobbyist” — but whose tinted red shades and purple polka-dot tie said “but I’m still a glam rocker.” Cause: Continued U.S. funding for efforts to combat HIV/AIDs in Africa, where the Elton John AIDS Foundation has spent tens of millions fighting […]

Veteran TV producer and professional Washington connector Tammy Haddad and her husband of more than two decades, lawyer Ted Greenberg, are splitting, according to people close to the couple. “It’s always sad when a marriage ends, but they are working to resolve this privately,” a friend of Haddad’s said, though neither Haddad nor Greenberg was […]

The Obamas have very different plans for sharing their post-retirements with David Letterman

Barack and Michelle Obama dished on their post-retirement plans during their separate final appearances on “The Late Show with David Letterman” this past week. And about the only thing they seemed to agree on was that more hanging out with the retiring host seems like a fine idea — otherwise, their notions diverge. On Monday, […]

Embarassing e-mails made public in lawsuit against MSNBC host Ed Schultz

The trial hasn’t yet begun for MSNBC host Ed Schultz, who’s being sued by an NBC employee who says he was cut out of Schultz’s TV deal after helping the former radio broadcaster launch his on-screen career. But even before the first gavel swings, things are already getting a wee bit embarrassing for the blustery […]

Michelle Obama and Jill Biden make brief cameo on ‘The NIght Shift’

On Monday night, first lady Michelle Obama and Jill Biden pulled a Beyoncé at the BET Awards. Not familiar with the reference? The year was 2011 and the crowd was all excitement. BET had rightfully hyped up their big night’s biggest performers — billing Beyoncé as a the show’s stopper. Fans expecting live body rolls were disappointed when […]

Who was Valerie Jarrett’s date to the state dinner?

The prize for the OMGcouple at Tuesday’s state dinner obviously went to Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and pop singer Ciara (rumors about their are-they-or-aren’t-they status had been flying, and their arm-in-arm presence at 1600 Penn was high-profile confirmation). Show More Summary

David Gregory relists Wesley Heights home for $2.475 million

David Gregory and his wife recently cut the price of their $2.475 million Wesley Heights home, which was previously listed for $2.795 million. But it seems there are no tea leaves to read  in that “for sale” sign about the future career plans of the ousted “Meet the Press” host — Gregory doesn’t seem to be […]

The Obamas rep their alma maters, and Wizard Bradley Beal shows off some major PDA: Which VIP had the best weekend?

Other A-listers put their love for their schools — and a girlfriend — on full display. Here’s a peek at their off-the-clock action: On Friday, chief official White […]
