Rashida Jones and Zosia Mamet Join Glamour

Magazines love the hype generated by hiring famous people, and so in that tradition, Rashida Jones (Parks and Recreation) and Zosia Mamet (Girls) have been named contributors to Glamour.

Jones (who actually has plenty of writing experience) will pen a monthly column titled “Love, Rashida.” It debuts in March. Mamet’s column, “My Zo-Called Life,” is online now and appears in Glamour’s February issue.

In Mamet’s first piece, she explains why it’s helpful to accept your flaws. While that’s not exactly groundbreaking content, at least it’s better than Drew Barrymore’s ode to a breakfast sandwich.

Journalists, Celebs Swarm DC For WHCD Weekend

whcd.pngNothing gets New Yorkers to jump on a bus faster than a party, especially a party where the guest of honor is the Barack Obama. For the second time this year, journalists and celebrities flocked to the Beltway to party it up with the prez–this time for the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Saturday.

Our colleagues over at FishbowlDC have extensive coverage of the weekend in the capitol. They hit all the fashionable pre-parties including ones hosted by The National Journal and The Atlantic and CBS. They hung out with celebs like Connie Britton, Ellen Burstyn, Tim Daly, Dana Delany, Kerry Washington and Rachael Leigh Cook at the Creative Coalition’s Thursday night fete and spied Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore, Rashida Jones, Jon Bon Jovi, Owen Wilson, Jason Bateman, Natalie Portman, Julia Louis Dreyfus, Brad Hall, Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, Dennis Leary, Glenn Close and BJ Novak at the Vanity Fair/Bloomberg after-party.

Of course, FBDC correspondents were also at the main event. If you missed it, you can watch Obama’s full (and pretty funny) speech here. Our favorite part of the President’s speech was when he teased Rahm Emanuel with a Mother’s Day jab: “He’s not used to saying the word day after ‘mother.’”
