So This Happened…Bill Clinton And I Dream of Jeannie

i dream of jeannie bill clinton

Bill Clinton had fun this weekend. Last time we saw Dear Bill he was hanging out with a much younger actress. Former President Clinton posed here on stage with I Dream of Jeannie‘s Barbara Eden at the Life Ball in Vienna. Ms. Eden is 78, 78! Good for her. She looks rad. The Life Ball is a huge charity event held in Europe that raises funds for HIV and AIDS awareness. None of this explains why there was an I Dream of Jeannie theme. Oh but wait, another treat! Pregnant Fergie with Barbara Eden! Who else didn’t recognize Fergie AT ALL? I totally forgot she was pregnant.

If you’re curious to see more of what a 78 year-old woman looks like in a crop top, check out the photos. I know I was. I’m not kidding. You rarely see 78 year-old women’s bare midriffs and I was very curious.

Don’t thank me. Thank The Daily Mail.

Jennifer Lawrence Fumbles Again At An Awards Show

Jennifer Lawrence is so endearing and quirky and awkward and etc etc that she tripped on her own gown at the Oscars. The little spark plug did it again at the GLAAD Media Awards, but this time, merely tripping over her words while trying to introduce Former President Bill Clinton.

From US Magazine:

Lawrence, for her part, endeared herself to both the politician and the crowd when she tripped over President Clinton’s name in her introduction and accidentally read some of Weinstein’s lines instead of her own. “It’s not my comfort zone,” she recently told U.K. magazine Fabulous of speaking in public. “Making movies is where I belong. I shouldn’t be heard just talking. So, when I’m doing movies, I’m really happy. That’s where I’m comfortable, that’s my home. When you put me on a red carpet or on a stage, I turn into chihuahua Jennifer.”

Whatever, it’s cute. So cute that TIME Magazine named her one of the 100 Most Influential People In The World, joining Lady Gaga.

Clinton, recipient of the Advocate for Change Award, was on hand to bring the sass.

During his acceptance speech, he joked that he was like a dinosaur next to the 22-year-old star [presenter Jennifer Lawrence.]

It looked like “she was touring the Museum of Natural History” backstage, Clinton, 66, quipped playfully, noting that “she was like 2 years old” when he took office in January 1993. (In fact, that’s not an exaggeration; the actress was born in August 1990.)

(Let’s just take this moment to listen to Clinton’s campaign song, “Don’t Stop”, by Fleetwood Mac, for the memories.)

Oh, Ms. Lawrence also showed up with a new haircut. Thoughts? See more photos of her hair + outfit and even a couple of her with President Clinton.

All The Celebrities Did A Funny or Die Video for Bill Clinton

And I’m barely exaggerating when I say “all the celebrities.” There’s Ben Stiller, Matt Damon, Sean Penn, Kristen Wiig, Ted Danson, Mary Steenburgen, Jack Black, and Kevin Spacey. Did I miss anyone? Oh, Bill Clinton. Goodness

Basically it always tickles me when so many celebrities get together for a good cause, so I figured you guys might enjoy this as well. Also, who doesn’t love it when Jack Black sings?

Presidents In Party Hats

Our President, in a big stupid party hat

President Obama celebrated his 50th birthday yesterday! Happy birthday, Mr. President!

And how did Madame Tussauds D.C. celebrate the occasion?


Something about this whole display gives me the screaming heebie-jeebies. The wax figures themselves look like reflections in a funhouse mirror.

Another thing: I am actually vaguely offended by the party hats. No matter your opinion of our Commander-in-Chief, I don’t think his effigy needed to spend his Big Day wearing a paper cone on his head. (Now, Bill Clinton wearing a party hat in the Oval Office? That’s hilarious.)

And finally, can you identify the wax woman standing with President and First Lady Obama? Because I genuinely thought it was Jennifer Hudson, you guys.

The Clintons Raised a Bitch

But who is surprised?

Little Chelsea Clinton is getting married soon, and of course her father is walking her down the aisle.  This would all be just fine and appropriate, but Chelsea told Bill that he needs to lose 15 pounds for the big day.  The former President said:

“[Chelsea] told me the other day, she said, ‘Dad, the only thing you gotta do is walk me down the aisle, and you need to look good.’ So I said, ‘Well, what’s your definition?’ And she said, ‘Oh, about 15 pounds.’ So I’m halfway home.”

Of course living healthily is important, and if someone is overweight, I think it’s great if a loved one wants to encourage them to get in shape.  That’s fine.  But this bitch wants her dad to look better in her wedding pictures, and that’s all it is, and that’s awful.  Maybe care about your father’s health, Chelsea.  Maybe stop obsessing over your bridal business and respect your parents.  Just a suggestion.

Trudie Styler, Sting and Bill Clinton Honored

Last night was Oceana’s 2008 Partners Award Gala held at the home of Jena and Michael King.  Trudie Styler, Sting and former President Bill Clinton were recognized for their work to help save our oceans.

Hostess Jena King and actress January Jones wore marine themed shades of blue (or green depending on your monitor settings)…trite but at least not black!  If I had a celeb-like body, I’d wear taxicab yellow every day of my life.  Do Hollywood women now fear color as much as they fear eating, aging and gravity?  In fairness, a couple ladies did trailblaze and branch out into the charcoal palette. 

Bill Clinton Talks Politics on The View

This set of clips from Slick Willy’s appearance on The View — put together by a (disclosed) McCain/Palin supporter — is worth watching, because in the final minute and a half the former President says an awful lot of things that sound like a quiet endorsement for John McCain. Clinton says he’ll be voting for Obama, “because I’m a loyal Democrat,” but then proceeds to offer some unmitigated compliments to John McCain.
