ReelzChannel Celebrity Rundown
At this weekend's White House Correspondents' Dinner President Barack Obama asked the question we've all been asking ourselves: "What is [Kim Kardashian] famous for, anyway?" Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan, both who were in attendance, were the butt of many of Obama's and host Jimmy Kimmel's jokes at the Washington, D.C. event. Here are some of our favorite jokes.
"Seriously, guys, what am I doing here?" Obama said. "I'm the President of the United States, and I'm opening for Jimmy Kimmel? Why am I telling knock-knock jokes to Kim Kardashian?"
"When you took office, the Kardashians had one reality show," Kimmel said to the President. "Now they have four. This is not a good trend."
Where is Sully Sullenberger? I met him outside," said Kimmel. "Sully, would you do us a favor? Would you mind driving Lindsay Lohan home? And make sure you don't run into a goose, especially a Grey Goose."
"If you are looking for the biggest threat to America right now, she is right there," said Kimmel. "Her name is Kim Kardashian. She was captured by Greta van Susteren and brought right to your doorstep."
"There are a lot of very big celebrities here with us tonight," Kimmel told the crowd. "Uggie is here. Uggie is the dog from the movie The Artist. Uggie is amazing. He can roll over on command. He's a Democrat."
"I guess Governor Romney is feeling pretty good about things because he took a few hours off the other day to see The Hunger Games," said Obama. "It's a movie about people who court wealthy sponsors and then brutally savage each other until only one contestant is left standing. I'm sure this was a really great change of pace for him."
Kardashian and her mother Kris Jenner reportedly laughed off the jokes. Kardashian said her favorite part of the night was meeting Martha Stewart "It's always a fun night," she said.
Speaking of the Kardashians... While the family recently signed a $40M contract to keep their reality show on the air for at least three more years, Khloe Kardashian and husband Lamar Odom are pulling the plug on their spinoff show, Khloe & Lamar. TMZ reports Lamar wants to focus on his fizzling NBA career rather than the reality show. Odom, who was traded from the L.A. Lakers to the Dallas Mavericks, was recently put on the inactive list after a lackluster season. Determined to make a comeback, Lamar is said to be moving back to L.A. but focusing full time on basketball, hiring trainers to help him get his game back. Now, if we could only figure out how to get Kim to cancel her show. Too bad she didn't stay together with her basketball player husband.
Kate Middleton and Prince William celebrated their one-year anniversary at a low-key party with close friends on Saturday. The day before the couple attended the wedding of Middleton's college friend Hannah Gillingham. One year into their marriage, the press is now on royal baby bump watch, with everyone speculating when the couple will have their first child and heir to the throne.
Boy band of the moment, The Wanted is not a fan of Christina Aguilera. During a radio interview the group trash talked the singer, calling her a bitch. "She's a total bitch," said member Tom Parker. "She might not be a bitch in real life, but to us, she was a total bitch. She just sat there and didn't speak to us. Wouldn't even look at us." The spat got started when Aguilera reportedly ignored the group during a recent appearance on The Voice. The band, however, seems to be a fan of American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez. Several members tweeted their admiration for Lopez. Jay McGuiness tweeted: "Jennifer Lopez it [sic] beautiful inside and out, everyone of us in love. Sexy, classy, funny, kind. Her new tune is a killer."
And in gender equality news, Joe Manganiello said the hardest part about playing a male stripper in this summer's Magic Mike was wearing a thong. "We all had to suffer a bit for our craft." Posted 04.30.12 by Chris
