Saturday night at the White House Correspondent's Dinner was such an amazing night and a unique opportunity! Truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Thanks to everyone at Bloomberg for inviting Perez, and thanks to D.C. for welcoming us with open arms.
We had the best time ever!
We feel very passionate about this upcoming election and the nomination process. We've been writing about politics on our site for a while now, so it made sense and felt right that Perez was at the Correspondent's Dinner.
The big soiree was held at the Washington Hilton and before the actual dinner, we made it to the Bloomberg, Reuters, People/TIME and Newsweek pre-parties.
Thankfully, we just stuck to water all night long or we wouldn't have made it all the way through the evening. The people in D.C. sure know how to drink!
We ran into Ashlee & Pete at one of the pre-parties, and - no - we didn't see Simpson drinking any alcohol.
The dinner itself was so lovely, especially because we were seated next to the amazing amazing Tracey Ullman at the Bloomberg table we were at. We've mentioned her new Showtime series a few times and have been a huge fan of her work forever, so it was such a treat to get to meet her and break bread. She had even requested to be sat next to Perez!!!! So surreal!
Salman Rushdie came over to say hi too. WTF???? Ya!
Craig Ferguson was the host for the evening and we think he was funny from what we were able to make out. We could barely understand what he was saying, though - his accent was especially thick last night!
We don't want to give him too much credit, but….President Bush was actually sorta humorous. He's still a douche, but at least a douche with the ability to be funny (thanks to great writers that scripted all his witty remarks).
Tracey Ullman and her friend dragged us over to meet the evil genius that is Karl Rove. That is pure comedy!
Seated a table away from the former Puppetmaster was Katie Couric. When Miz Ullman went to introduce Perezzers to the lame duck CBS Evening News host, all that Katie did was wag her finger at P-Nasty and give him a smirk.
We wagged our finger back - better - and smirked back harder!
The Jonas Brothers are always just the nicest guys around, and we were lucky enough to spend several minutes chatting wit them.
The Jonai are big fans of Eric Hutchinson. How awesome is that?????
Kevin, Nick and Joe were definitely the biggest draw of the room, attracting hordes of girls coming up to ask for an autograph or pic.
We peeped Martha Stewart out of the corner of our eye taking pic of us as we were chatting with the Jonas Brothers. Maybe she'll put that up on her blog?
Despite all the "drama" that you may have read about, Spencer & Heidi made it to the Correspondent's Dinner after all! They told us they were guests of Fortune magazine, after MSNBC backed out on paying for their hotel and airfare.
Lauren Conrad was also an invited guest of Bloomberg's, but they kept her at a separate table from us. Sad.
After the dinner, we walked to the Bloomberg after-party at the Costa Rican Embassy, which was phenomenal. That party is on par with something you'd see at the Oscars. The budget to put it on, we were told, was way more than $1 million…and it showed!
Bloomberg completely converted the Embassy into their own super-swank party space, and it was just soooo rad. We got to meet Donatella Versace, whose lips don't look as huge in person as they do in pictures. Thankfully, they've deflated!
Pamela Anderson's boobs are just as big as ever, and we chatted with her for a hot second about her upcoming E! reality show, which she doesn't like calling a reality show.
We even got to chat with John McCain's daughter, who says she reads PerezHilton.com every day. She didn't seem to mind when we did THIS!
After the Bloomberg party, we headed over to the Newseum for the Capitol File bash.
We were able to chat politics with Rosario Dawson, who is very involved with Voto Latino. She's not publicly endorsing any one candidate - she's just urging people to get out and VOTE.
Pete Wentz was DJing the Capitol File party and Lauren Conrad was there. As soon as Spencer and Heidi showed up and entered the VIP area she was at, though, L.C. practically ran away and left the party.
It may be Washington, but it's still Hollywood!
