Ted Cruz’s college roommate fantasy casted the movie about their dorm years

Ted Cruz’s freshman roommate has emerged as one of the Republican presidential hopeful’s preeminent Twitter trolls, sharing embarrassing tales of the “creepy” guy he remembers from Princeton, circa 1988. Now Craig Mazin, who went on to become a Hollywood writer and producer, with credits that include the second and third installments of “The Hangover” franchise, […]

President Obama’s post-White House wheels: minivan or Corvette?

President Obama might be kicking the wheels of his post-White House ride. A few weeks back, he admired the 1963 Stingray Corvette that he borrowed from Jerry Seinfeld during his appearance on “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” (his precise adjective: “sweet”). But on Wednesday, he seemed enthusiastic about a slightly more practical vehicle. In Detroit touring […]

Lynda Carter won’t appear in the new Wonder Woman movie

The long-awaited Wonder Woman movie set for release in June features familiar touchstones of the comic-book superhero, per a preview video out this week that quickly went viral: that tiara, those gunshot-deflecting cuffs. One thing fans won’t see onscreen? Lynda Carter, the actress who played the Amazon princess in the late-1970s TV series and is considered by many […]

The film follows Lorenz, the German born American brunette bombshell, who began a love affair with Cuban leader Fidel Castro […]

Sarah Palin isn’t down with O.P.M.

By now, you might be well versed in Sarah Palin’s verses. On Tuesday the former Alaskan governor and Fox News commentator, officially endorsed GOP presidential candidate Donald J. Trump in a rambling and rhyming 20-minute stump speech in Iowa that might have made more sense at an Iggy Azalea concert. Behold: Palin, dressed in a jingle jangling Milly bolero jacket, […]

Have a drink on Donald Trump at the Hay-Adams hotel bar

Donald Trump is seemingly everywhere: Your Twitter feed is all-Trump-all-the-time, and you can’t turn on cable news without a glimpse of That Hair. Now, the mogul-turned-GOP front-runner is under your cocktail. The Off The Record bar at the Hay-Adams hotel just debuted a coaster bearing Trump’s likeness, so customers can either toast the candidate’s success or drink […]

Julianne Hough gets way TMI about Brooks Laich in Cosmo interview

“Dancing With the Stars” fans, or Washington Capitals fans, or just folks who root for love between Hollywood stars and athletes might want to know more about the relationship between Julianne Hough and her fiancee, Caps center Brooks Laich. But even the most ardent Brolianne ‘shippers might call “ew, TMI!” after reading Hough’s new interview with […]

Excited about Joel McHale’s role in the X-Files reboot? Thank the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

Who says the White House Correspondents’ Dinner is all air-kissing and photo ops? We’ve long known the annual Hollywood-meets-Washington mixer was a place where romantic connections are made (just ask newlywed actors Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello, who met cute at the 2014 dinner), and now, there’s more evidence that actual business gets done amid  the […]

Chelsea Handler criticizes Redskins team name in essay

It’s essentially Chelsea Handler’s job as a comedian to make fun of people. The more politically incorrect the punchlines, the better. It doesn’t exactly work that way for the rest of us. But in a new essay at the Daily Beast, Handler argues that it should — to an extent. Maybe not if you root for a […]

Rapper Killer Mike says Bernie Sanders could be a Beastie Boy

Killer Mike, the hip-hop artist who has been a vocal supporter of Sen. Bernie Sanders’s presidential campaign, isn’t your typical celebrity political endorser. He doesn’t just warm up crowds or tweet about his candidate — he’s treading on ground typically reserved for the pros: the post-debate spin room. Mike (nee Michael Render) offered up sound […]

Few nerves and even less feuding at the ‘Real Housewives of Potomac’ premiere in D.C.

The mood on the tight red carpet at Sunday night’s premiere of the “Real Housewives of Potomac” in the District teetered between the good kind of nervousness and the bad kind of nausea. In less than two hours, the world according to Bravo would meet six new reality stars (and Twitter might have six new targets). Some of the women stepping […]

Bern your tuxedos: In a Sanders White House, would state dinners go business-casual?

Sticklers for formality may have reason to fear for the future of the state dinner, one of the last bastions of black-tie, get your-hair-done, multiple-fork entertaining. Back in August, GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump suggested that he would serve Chinese President Xi Jinping a McDonald’s hamburger rather than the lavish dinner President Obama hosted in […]

Amal Clooney appears on ‘Meet the Press’ and, thankfully, there’s no mention of George

During her 12-minute segment on “Meet the Press” today, Amal Clooney, who’s famously married to some actor named George, did a lot of name-dropping. The human rights lawyer currently defending the jailed former president of the Maldives, Mohamed Nasheed, mentioned President Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry and Secretary General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon. […]

Congresswoman Frederica Wilson will cameo on ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” the Southern outfit of the catty franchise coming to Potomac, has spent the past eight seasons serving up the boilerplate drama for which the series is known — catchphrases, hair-pulling and even prison sentences. But on Sunday night’s episode, the show will take a more serious turn as it heads to […]

At ’13 Hours’ screening, conservatives see what’s not there

It’s a Friday night in Washington, which means dinner, a few cocktails, and…talking points? At the AMC Loews theater in Georgetown, a crowd of conservatives grabbed buckets of popcorn and settled in for a screening of the new movie, “13 Hours,” about the attacks on the U.S. embassy in Libya. Moviegoers confabbed afterwards at a […]

‘My article failed': Now Sean Penn knows what it’s like to be a journalist

Actor Sean Penn played journalist when he went on a secret mission to Mexico to interview fugitive drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán for an interview published last weekend in Rolling Stone. Much has been made about how Penn’s experience was in no way like those of actual reporters who cover the Mexican drug trade, […]

Supermodel and Maryland native Hilary Rhoda sues mom and former manager

We have just one question: WWKJD? Model Hilary Rhoda started her career while still in high school at the urging of her mom-turned-manager Marianne Rhoda. The Reliable Source reported that the two happened to hear about a model casting at the Washington Hilton while listening to the radio in a car. Mom suggested they drop in, and […]

Obama’s Cabinet has its own pre-SOTU tradition: A dinner party on Capitol Hill

By now we know that SCOTUS pre-games the State of the Union Address each year in style (the wine got the best of RBG last year), but you may not know that the Cabinet has its own enviable pre-festivities tradition. For the last four years, Obama’s Cabinet has hit up the venerable Monocle Restaurant before […]

The cast of ‘Real Housewives of Potomac’ finally speaks and table flipping isn’t their favorite topic

Idaho tweeters (and presumably the rest of us) be warned: The ladies of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of the Potomac” aren’t afraid of you. Or anything really. During a breakfast interview on Wednesday while making the rounds at the Television...Show More Summary
