At their 13th state dinner the Obamas have the diplomatic formula down

  Obviously they have it down pat. On Tuesday night, there was little by way of surprise heading into the state dinner in honor of Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. The flowers are always plentiful and expertly coordinated with the night’s theme (this time friendship and summer), the food meant to showcase American exceptionalism as […]

Leonardo DiCaprio to host fundraiser for Hillary Clinton

It’s a meeting of the first-names-only club: Leo will host Hillary for a fundraiser. That’s actor/activist/supermodel enthusiast Leonardo DiCaprio, of course, who according to Variety, will hold an event for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in Los Angeles on Aug. 23.

Vice President Biden performs his first marriage ceremony — and it was for a same-sex couple

As far as Washington power weddings go, the nuptials between two White House staffers proves that it’s not a VIP-packed guest list that counts — not when you have Vice President Biden officiating at the ceremony. The Veep did the honors for staffers Brian Mosteller and Joe Mahshie at an intimate wedding on Monday afternoon […]

Your Singapore cheat sheet in advance of the state dinner

Americans unable to afford the $1,700 flight to Singapore can be forgiven for not knowing much about the 50-year-old country ahead of the state dinner in honor of its Prime Minster Lee Hsien Loong on Aug. 2. That is to say most of us don’t know a lot about Singapore. Fans of mid-90s SNL might vaguely recall the “caning” cold […]

Ryan Zimmerman gives fans a peek inside his Virginia home

Washington Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman and his wife, Heather, need a vacation. Or at least that’s the underlying message we got from the recent home tour the couple filmed for Coldwell Banker. As part of the “Home Field Advantage” series, a short video produced in partnership with MLB.com that feels like “MTV Cribs,” the Zimmermans showed off the […]

Billy Joel to local Metro riders: I feel your pain

Metro riders, the Piano Man feels your pain. After severe thunderstorms delayed Billy Joel’s concert at Nationals Park on Saturday, effectively leaving a host of the musician’s Metro-riding fans stranded because of early closures due to SafeTrack repairs, the singer-songwriter gave a shout-out to those suffering in their seats.

Hey, isn’t that… Secretary of State John Kerry having dinner at Washington’s newest power-dining spot on the last night of the Democratic National Convention last week? Kerry, who was spotted with two men in suits, dined at Masseria, the Italian eatery tucked away near Union Market on Thursday. Our tipster said that the telltale VVIP […]

For some reason Canadian Justin Bieber can’t escape American politics

Justin Bieber is from Canada. Let’s just get that out of the way. But despite his non-voting status in the United States, Bieber, the oft-embattled pop star who has harnessed the awesome power of the tween scream for nearly a decade, has again landed in the center of this country’s political news cycle. On Friday, TMZ reported that after […]

The Singapore State Dinner looks like a bit a snooze

For the Obamas 13th state dinner the White House will roll out the typical ta-dah that goes along with the golden ticket affair. There will be beef — again. Bright yellow flowers that symbolize — surprise ! — friendship. And for the big finish? A set by neo-soul artist Chrisette Michele. Who? Exactly. At a […]

Joe Biden and Mariska Hargitay, BFFs?

Power duo alert: actress Mariska Hargitay and Vice President Biden are proving to be quite the team lately. Hargitay, best known for her role as Lieutenant Olivia Benson on “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit,” narrated the biographical video introducing Biden at the Democratic National Convention this week. Now, Biden is returning the favor by […]

Tim Kaine’s left eyebrow is now a national obsession

Democratic vice-presidential nominee Tim Kaine commanded a national audience on Wednesday night at the Democratic National Convention. And so did The Eyebrow. Kaine’s left brow — in all its jumpy, expressive, arched glory — first drew notice when the then-Virginia governor gave the Democratic response to George W. Bush’s 2006 State of the Union speech. Pundits deemed it […]

This notorious Washington party house is trying to rebrand

Yes, those are definitely live fish (koi to be exact) swimming under the see-through floor in the foyer. Also, that’s definitely a waterfall (all 25 feet of it) over to the right. But that classic red telephone booth is not, in fact, a telephone booth. It’s an elevator. And this house in Dupont Circle is definitely not a party […]

Elizabeth Banks likens Donald Trump to her ‘Hunger Games’ character

Actress Elizabeth Banks introduced herself onstage at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday night by likening her character in “The Hunger Games” to a certain Republican presidential nominee. “Some of you know me from ‘The Hunger Games,’ in which I play Effie Trinket, a cruel, out-of-touch reality TV star who wears insane wigs while delivering long-winded […]

Donna Brazile and her ‘Colored Girls’ crew to pen an inspirational book about politics and friendship

Donna Brazile, the interim DNC chair, and her posse of power players are set to pen a book together about their tight friendship and inspiring personal journeys for St. Martin’s Press. The book will be titled simply “The Colored Girls,” a name the fivesome gave themselves years ago. Members in the clique are Brazile; top Hillary Clinton aide, Minyon Moore; chief […]

Meryl Streep had fun at the Democratic convention — onstage and off

Meryl Streep has won plenty of awards, and during Tuesday night’s speech at the Democratic National Convention, she might have bested former Vermont governor Howard Dean in the category of “best scream.” The actress shrieked and shook her arms to roars from the audience during an impassioned address in support of nominee Hillary Clinton. “What does it […]

Another ‘most expensive’ home hits the private market in D.C.

The Washington real estate echo chamber loves its superlatives: The home most likely to be the Obamas’ next address, D.C.’s oldest home (sorta) and, of course, the area’s most expensive home. Several properties have held that last title from the old Textile Museum site to the manse that Giant Food built. With those temporary title holders sold, a new “most […]

What would a state dinner look like in a Trump White House?

The White House is hosting a state dinner next week for Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong of Singapore.
