Prince’s performance at the White House, still under the radar

This would all be a lot easier if the White House flipped on those famous colored up lights, illuminating the North Portico in purple and signaling to the world that Prince, yes the Prince, was jamming inside the executive mansion. But when it comes to their private time the Obamas rarely make things easy. As we reported last […]

Norah O’Donnell gets ‘a nice crispy skin’ at National Press Club roast

How do you roast the woman who has everything together? Seriously. Poking fun at a 40-year-old mother of three who does bicep curls in stilettos while sporting gorgeous hair and packing a gourmet lunch made by a handsome husband just seems so … impossible. Show More Summary

President Obama surprises Congressional Baseball fans at annual game

Sen. Rand Paul’s strikeout was the last play President Obama saw before heading back to the White House after a surprise visit to the annual Congressional Baseball Game pitting Republicans against Democrats for charity.

Michelle Obama named ‘guest editor’ of More magazine

Remember, you heard it here first, people. Among Washington’s power women, the title editor is a coveted resume bullet point. And you don’t get more powerful than first lady Michelle Obama, who was revealed as the “guest editor” of More magazine’s July/August issue  Thursday. Show More Summary

Prince is rumored to be adding a third D.C. performance this weekend

Trying (and failing) to score tickets to Prince’s two “surprise” shows at the Warner Theatre on Sunday? We’ve got good news: the Purple One is rumored to be adding another secret set to his Washington tour stop. Oh and some bad news: You probably won’t get into that performance either. Whispers have been swirling since Thursday morning that Prince […]

Olympic medalist Michelle Kwan joins the Clinton campaign

Carolina Herrera says Washington women are smart and chic

After succinctly shutting down the “naked dress” with the shade of ten thousand side eyes,  76-year-old fashion designer Carolina Herrera almost felt badly about it — almost.

Rep. Don Young remarries in Capitol ceremony (on his 82nd birthday!)

It wasn’t just another day at the office for Rep. Don Young. The Alaska Republican did spend Tuesday, his 82nd birthday, under the Capitol dome. But he had business far more exciting than floor votes or committee meetings: he wed Anne Walton, a 76 year-old flight nurse from Fairbanks, in a small ceremony in the […]

Confirmed bachelor and 2016 hopeful Lindsey Graham promises a ‘rotating first lady’

Well that sure sounds … dizzying? Republican presidential hopeful and longtime resident of Singleville Sen.

It’s moving day for Josh Duggar and family

Looks like it’s moving day for Josh Duggar and his family. A photographer snapped trucks being loaded up at the Oxon Hill, Md., home of the eldest of TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting” clan on Tuesday. The apparent move follows revelations earlier this month that a then-teenaged Duggar was accused in 2005 of molesting young […]

Billionaire philanthropists swarm Salamander resort

If billionaire philanthropists hold a clandestine gathering in Virginia horse country, do they make a sound?

Meet Judy Grande: Ariana’s aunt and glass-ceiling-poking Washington reporter

Pop singer Ariana Grande this weekend tweeted a feminist manifesto of sorts deriding a culture that focuses on her dating life instead of her music and identifies her in terms of her relationships (she just broke up with rapper Big Sean — not that we care). And amid the the you-go-girl empowerment talk, the “Love Me […]

The Scene: Opera Ball’s German flair could mark the last of its kind

Looks like it could be auf wiedersehen to the traditional Washington Opera Ball. After 40 years of holding the glittery annual event at embassies, Washington National Opera’s trustees are seriously considering moving the annual fundraiser to the Kennedy Center — a cost-saving measure but also a chance for donors to get closer to the Opera […]
