POTUS Pulls April Fools Joke

If you go to the White House website you’ll see there’s a “special message” from the President front page! Then there’s a pint-sized “April Fool’s” to follow. Anyone else get you today?

I’m having Splashbacks

America’s favorite mermaid gets arrested at the White House. Daryl Hannah was protesting an oil pipeline expansion. As I watched her be cuffed and whisked away a couple random thoughts came to mind.

  • My childhood visit Aquarena Springs in San Marcos TX- where you could see pigs dive and an underwater mermaid show
  • “Madison” use to be an uncommon name
  • This time she wasn’t arrested for indecent exposure but can’t help but think she looks awesome at 50

WHCD Weekend: Rented the dresses and all!

Michelle Obama donned a long Halston dress at the White House Correspondents Dinner the same designer I chose to wear too! Hers was probably a gazillion dollars where mine cost only$75bucks. HOW you ask? I RENTED it.

Yep-   It’s my new favorite thing. Renting dresses and jewelry from Rent-the-Runway.com. There’s designers fit for the First Lady you can rent for a fraction of the cost. I mean- some are only $25!  Not only did I rent the Jet Black Halston for the party night.. I got a Lela Rose dress for brunch the next day.

This is how it works. You choose the 4 day span to rent your dress for time to get it, wear it and mail it back. They give you all you need. Oh and here’s a perk- you can choose a second size for free! The Halston halter was $455 but I rented it for $75. I also rented the this $545 Dannijo cuff.. for $45.

WUSA9's Kristin Fisher Marries

Congrats are in order for WUSA9’s Kristin Fisher. Our former morning show reporter (she’s moved to the day shift …sniff ) married her true love Walker over the weekend. The gorgeous ceremony was held at The Church of the Holy City in DC… and a rockin’ reception with an extraordinary view followed at the Hay-Adams Hotel. Highlights included a jaw-dropping beautiful bridal gown, a sweetly executed toast by the bride’s sister Kara and out-of-this world party favors: moon pies and freeze-dried ice cream. Hey what do you expect from a bride who is the daughter of two NASA astronauts. It was great to catch up with some 9NEWS colleagues too.. Jessica Doyle, Andrea Roane and Larry Lewis. I think it’s fair to say from all of us.. best and bright wishes to the newlyweds!

What SJP Wore for the Big Premiere

Manolos move over.. there’s a new shoe shining in town.  Sarah Jessica Parker wore a pair of silver satin Ferragamo pumps with high heel and double platform to the worldwide premiere of the new film “Sex And The City 2“, held on Monday, May 24th at Radio City Music Hall in New York.

Just something to keep in mind for those wondering what to wear to DC’s SATC2  private screenings going on Wednesday.

One viewing will be at AFI Theater (I’ll be there along with a ‘Mr. Big’ so big he’s coming from the White House!!) and there’s another posh party with showing at AMC Georgetown which benefits Labels For Love.

Amongst the glitter OMG thinks SJP glows in NYC. Do you?
