Mean Betty on Washington’s Main Event
Washington DC was just like Tinseltown this weekend. Jessica, Kim and Justin and just a hint of scandal.
Guess what some of your favorite celebs did Saturday night, kittens? They got all political at the White House Correspondents’ dinner in Washington, DC, which has turned into a veritable red-carpet event. Well, someone said that politics was really show business for ugly people and Mean Betty thinks that someone—whoever the clever dear was–was right-on.
The dinner was brimming with political heavyweights like the Jonas Brothers, Justin Bieber and Kim Kardashian. Ha-ha, yes, Mean Betty is giggling, too. Bieber seemed to have more bodyguards around him than the President. Just think if teen-agers could vote, babyface Bieber might be blow-drying his hair in the Lincoln Bedroom. Oh, the horror, the horror.
Jessica Simpson, in smack-you-in-the-eye yellow (better to get noticed, my dears) told People Magazine that she really wants to be Michelle Obama. Uh-huh. “I really do. She’s such an incredible woman. Everything she does exudes confidence. I am really here to celebrate her.”
President Obama did some standup at the dinner. He poked fun at Tonight Show host Jay Leno, who was at the event. “I am glad that the only person’s whose ratings fell more than mine last year is here tonight. Great to see you, Jay,” he quipped to loud laughter. “I’m also glad that I’m speaking first because we’ve all seen what happens when somebody takes the time slot after Leno’s.”
Of course another story was circulating around Washington this weekend, too. (Mean Betty is so in-the- DC-know.) And she doesn’t doubt it might have been whispered about just a teeny, tiny bit by those White House correspondents. It seems the National Enquirer in this week’s edition hints at a possible affair between the President and a former campaign aide. Oh, dear. Oh, dear.
According to the Enquirer, “A confidential investigation has learned that Obama first became close to gorgeous 35-year-old Vera Baker in 2004 when she worked tirelessly to get him elected to the US Senate, raising millions in campaign contributions.” Baker claims “nothing happened” between them. But big money is supposedly being offered to a limo driver who says he drove Baker to the hotel where Obama was staying.
Now, Mean Betty thinks there is nothing to this tawdry little tale. But, of course, enquiring minds do want to know. And Mean does remember the President once told a friend that if he ever strayed Michelle would kick his ass.
Well, now Michelle has Jessica Simpson on her team and the combination of the two of them, frankly, would be even more frightening to him than any Republicans.
