Hey Isn’t That…

…NBC 4′s Jim Handly having brunch at Mansion on O Street Sunday afternoon? Partaking of a buffet boasting a chocolate fountain and a whole poached salmon, our hometown hero was rocking some sensible khakis and chatting with a distinguished-looking gentleman at a table draped in taffeta.  We can’t confirm, but we hear Handly dipped said salmon into said chocolate fountain.

Gross, Jim Handly, gross.

Hey Isn’t That…

…DC public affairs guy Peter Mirijanian on Bravo’s new trash reality series “Southern Charm?” In episode one, Mirijanian makes a brief cameo to endorse Thomas Ravenel, fallen SC state treasurer who spent time in the clink on federal drug charges. Ravenel is one of the “stars” of the new show.

Hey Isn’t That…?

…every journalist in DC on “House of Cards” ????

FishbowlDC caught up with CNN’s Candy Crowley a few days back to chat a bit about her star turn in “HoC” But she was far from the only DC journo to mix it up with the Underwoods this season. We pinged a few more to see what the experience was like:

Morris Jones, News Channel 8

On being sworn to secrecy: “I’m in two different spoiler scenes and I had to sign a non disclosure agreement.  I guess if I revealed any details before the public release, I might be found floating in the Potomac!”

Scott Thuman, ABC 7

On what question he would ask Frank Underwood: “Easy. Are you looking for a new press guy?”

Julianna Goldman, Bloomberg News

On watching the first season: “The cast was a guest of Bloomberg’s at the White House Correspondents Dinner. I hadn’t seen the show and everyone kept coming up to the actors to talk about the season. So, I binged and basically watched the entire season on a transatlantic flight last summer. I then felt very dark inside.”

Major Garrett, CBS News

On which character he would interview: “President Garrett Walker…My first question: How could you despoil the regal name Garrett with such a weak and vacillating approach to the presidency?”

Hey, Isn’t that…

CNN’s Candy Crowley in this episode of “House of Cards?”

CNNSOTUHOC

BTW, we asked Candy recently (you know, cuz we’re tight like that) who from the “HOC” cast would she most want to interview in real life, and, perhaps unsurprisingly, she chose Frank Underwood.

“But I would want part of the interview to be a sit-down with him and Claire,” she told FBDC. “I am fascinated by evil people.”

And when asked if she was a fan of the show, she gave us an only-in-Washington reply:

“There are people who aren’t fans?”

Congrats on the cameo Candy! We predict this is the beginning of a promising career in television!

Spotted Around Town: WJLA’s Scott Thuman and 95.5′s Sunni

Last night was the one year anniversary of the opening of restaurant Mari Vanna, the DC home of authentic Russian cuisine and vodka (lots and lots of vodka). Managers Victor Star and Sergii Andriushchenko threw a big ole’ party to celebrate, but we, alas, were unable to go. Apparently some other local media celebs were in attendance, however.

WPGC 95.5′s midday host Sunni popped by.

Spotted: WaPo’s Gene Weingarten

Spotted in Eastern Market Thursday afternoon was none other than WaPo‘s “humor” columnist Gene Weingarten, who recently announced on Twitter that he has two penises. He was, of course, joking (we think).

Still, you could imagine our excitement when an anonymous tipster texted these to my cell phone. “At first it looked like he was wearing a Canadian Tuxedo — denim on demin,” said our tipster, explaining that Weingarten was spotted in the Eastern Market neighborhood of Washington, D.C. “Upon further inspection, it was just an ordinary blue shirt and blue pants.”

Sighting: Andrew Sullivan Pacing

Want to know where to look for conservative blogger Andrew Sullivan, who writes The Dish?

On some days, such as one afternoon late last week, he was pacing outside Starbucks in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington talking on his cell phone. The topics of his conversation included (in no particular order): policy innovation, gay marriage and his brother’s birthday.

Not that we were eavesdropping or anything.
