Y & N’s Katy Adams Toasted at Teatro

Vino flowed for Katy Adams at Teatro Goldoni on Friday evening. The newest writer to take the reins of the Examiner‘s “Yeas and Nays” column was celebrated by nearly two dozen media types with a lovely three-course dinner hosted by Janet Donovan. In attendance were WBJ‘s Jennifer Nycz-Conner, Nick Massella, Brendan Kownacki, Human Events editor Emily Miller, Roz Plater and Maureen Ume of Fox 5, Roll Call‘s Beth Brotherton and Ali McSherry, Examiner’s Jacque Bland, Mary Bird, Amy McLean of CTIA and of course, Katy’s partner in crime – Nikki Schwab.

The hot topics: Glenn Beck’s weekend rally (Schwab and Miller hashed it out), Donovan’s consumer electronics woes (TiVo, DVD TV setup), and Nikki Schwab’s new “do,” as in hairdo – Schwab treated herself to a little makeover at the Red Door Salon that day.

New Partners in Crime: Yeas & Nays

Here we have the first column in which the blonds, both with shoulder-length hair, appear together with a brand new picture. Adams was previously a producer at WTTG Fox 5.

Media Frenzy at Real Housewives Premiere Party

Extra, CNN, WaPo, the Examiner, Politics Daily, Politico, The Hill, CBS and NBC are just a few of the media outlets that showed up to cover last night’s premiere and screening party for Bravo’s “Real Housewives of DC,” held at the Madison Hotel in downtown Washington.

The invite-only fete featured all of the “housewives” and their families except for White House crashers Tareq and Michaele Salahi who hosted their own pay-for party down the street at Josephine — a good move considering the crowd at the Madison booed the notorious couple each time they appeared on screen.

Even without the Salahis, the event offered its fair share of drama and whispers when Lynda Erkiletian arrived with a Secret Service-looking security detail of four in tow. More catty comments were made about Catherine Ommanney who showcased her sickly physique by wearing a tacky, slinky, backless dress.

But it wasn’t all would-be reality stars….Washington media was out in full force. FishbowlDC caught up with Politico‘s Kiki Ryan, the Yeas and Nays ladies – Nikki Schwab and Katy Adams, Liz Glover, WaPo’s Amy Argetsinger, Amy Holmes, The Hill‘s Emily Goodin, Omarosa, The Hill‘s Christina Wilkie, Washington Life‘s Michael Clements, Politics Daily’s Annie Groer, NBC’s Janet Donovan, Mix 107.3′s Tommy McFly, WUSA’s Angie Goff, CBS News’ Christine Delargy and even Washingtonian‘s Garret Graff whose knowledge and love for reality television baffled and amazed us.

Examiner Hires Second Scribe for Yeas & Nays

The Washington Examiner has made a hire on that second Yeas & Nays gossip columnist post that needed to be filled.

It’s Katy Adams, a four-time Emmy winner from FOX 5. The lead columnist will continue to be Nikki Schwab.

Noteworthy backstory: Editor Steve Smith grew frustrated in the process of replacing former columnist Tara Palmeri, who’s now at NYP‘s Page 6. We’re hearing that if this hire hadn’t happened, Smith briefly considered shifting the hiring responsibility to editor Jacque Bland. Smith tried to hire Nick Ballasy, who apparently said he wanted to continue to do more “serious” journalism (to which some at the Examiner rolled their eyes in response). Ballasy works for the news web site Cybercast News Service.

See Smith’s announcement e-mail after the jump. It includes a second hire, Lisa Gartner, who will cover the less flashy beat of “Virginia.” She comes highly qualified and is also award-winning…

• Over 300 people were at the Embassy of Canada last night for the DistrictFile 2.0 launch party. DistrictFile is the invitation-only social networking website for political and media professionals and they’ll unveil a new platform, 2.0, next week.

The Hill‘s Kate Oczypok, Fox’s Katy Adams, Congress Daily‘s Anna Edney, NJ‘s Sara Jerome and GregsListDC’s Greg O’Neil were among those repping the media, according to last night’s party planners.

• We can’t be everywhere so while FBDC was at the Ritz with Zac Efron and Claire Danes, we let our friends at Politico cover the “recession book party.” The Weekly Standard threw Matt Continetti a book party to celebrate “The Persecution of Sarah Palin.” Check out Click’s coverage here.

You’d never guess that What’s-Hip-And-Hot website Daily Candy

…would have these kinds of folks in the audience during a recent book reading at Olsson’s bookstore:

Olsson’s regulars asking Hartigan if DailyCandy should spread the news about how harmful high heels are for feet. Seriously.

Pamela’s Punch was also there.
