Behind the Scenes at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner

For the White House Correspondents’ Association, it’s a night to celebrate the free press. For Joel McHale, it’s a night where “a guy like me can stand before the president, the press and Patrick Duffy, and tell jokes without severe repercussions.” And for TVNewser, it’s a night where the people we cover all year — executives, producers, reporters and anchors from every major network — are all together in the same room: the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, which we attended this year as a guest of ABC News.

Our night began outside the entrance to the ballroom at the Washington Hilton, where we overheard now-NBC News correspdonent Cynthia McFadden ask for directions to the ABC News party. We followed her in, and a few minutes later we were chatting with Diane Sawyer, who told us she always looks forward to the Correspondents’ Dinner, and James Goldston, who said he was pleased with his first few weeks as ABC News president. In the back of the room, Fox News anchors Ainsley Earhardt and Kimberly Guilfoyle posed for a picture with Sofia Vergara; Earhardt told us afterwards that she’s “having a blast” anchoring “Fox & Friends First,” despite the crazy hours. We spotted Katie Couric chatting with former Presidential candidate Jon Huntsman and his daughter, Abby Huntsman, who is a co-host of MSNBC’s “The Cycle.”

Wolf Blitzer made the rounds with Diane Lane. We saw NBC’s Savannah Guthrie and ABC’s Lara Spencer snap a picture with Tony Goldwyn from “Scandal.” We spent a few minutes with Rebecca Jarvis, and chatted with Alicia Menendez about her participation in the TVNewser Show as well as her Twitter habit.

On the way into the ballroom, we spotted Guthrie and her husband, Mike Feldman, chatting with Bret Baier and his wife Amy. We saw Jessica Simpson and her fiance, Eric Johnson, chatting with fans. Simpson’s ex, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo, was also at the WHCD as a guest of Fox News. Read more

WPS Unveils The 2011 Uniforms


Women’s Professional Soccer might not survive much longer, but the league will look good while going down in flames (or surviving, who knows!)

WPS and PUMA launched the uniform line for the 2011 season at an event on Thursday. Players including Alex Scott, Leslie Osborne, Tasha Kai, and Allie Long were on hand to show off the new kits.

“For three straight years now, we’ve seen the best of sport performance and style come together on the field with PUMA’s custom WPS uniforms,” WPS CEO Anne-Marie Eileraas said in a statement. “This year’s team kits are no different. In this World Cup year, PUMA’s founding partnership with WPS and its on-going support of women’s soccer is crucial to the growth of the game both in the U.S. and internationally, given the league’s global appeal as the best soccer league for women in the world.”

While we wish the uniforms were a bit more like the NFL-as-soccer-jerseys, we like what PUMA’s done.

Cleveland Radio Host Tries To Curse LeBron James

If LeBron James suffers a season-ending injury tonight against the Boston Celtics, you can blame the host of Rover’s Morning Glory.

The host of the Cleveland morning show hired a witch doctor in an attempt to curse James following his departure from the Cavaliers.

According to the radio station, the witch doctor used bones, blood and a James jersey to cast a curse this morning, hours before the NBA season opener.

Let it go, Cleveland. Just let it go.
