It’s no secret that conservatives sorta hate President Barack Obama. So much so that House republicans voted to SUE him this week.

Eye roll.

But last night, Barry O was shaking hands with one right-winger and they both seemed to be getting along great!

Who was this anti-Dem dame?

It was Katy Perry’s republican mom!!!

Katy Perry Performs At The White House During A Special Olympics Gala! Wait’ll You Hear Her New Stripped Down Take On Roar! Sooo Good!


President Obama and the White House celebrated the 46th anniversary of The Special Olympics last night with a fancy schmancy sit-down dinner!

We’re sure the food was great but the entertainment was AH-Mazing!

Katy Perry took the stage in a stunning royal blue gown adorned with crystals. Making her ensem pop even more was the fact that her backup band was dressed all in white!

Classy!

Her otherwise colorful hair was a just basic black, pulled back and up for the occasion. Gorgeous girl!

Jimmy Fallon Takes The Polar Plunge To Raise Money For The Special Olympics!

jimmy fallon polar plunge fundraiser for special olympics

While you were busy watching the Oscars wrapped up in a nice warm blanket in the comfort of your home, Jimmy Fallon was jumping in a freezing cold lake in the middle of the winter!!

The hilarious late night host made his way to Chicago yesterday to participate in the annual Polar Plunge and took a dip in Lake Michigan to help raise money for the Special Olympics Chicago!

Jimmy did his best to dress warm for the occasion as he opted for his trademark suit and tie instead of a Speedo, but it doesn't look like the extra layers did him any good! Based on his facial expression and the fact that there's snow everywhere, we're guessing it was pretty darn cold!!

We hope Jimmy got his hands on a nice big cup of hot chocolate afterwards! He deserves it!

Maria Shriver Makes Emotional Speech At Special Olympics Park Dedication

Filed under: InspirationOlympicsMaria Shriver

This is so sweet.

Maria Shriver made a wonderful speech in Greece during the Special Olympics for the park dedication ceremony in honor of her mother.

She talks about how important the games were to her mom, and how much they now mean to her. Maria's mother Eunice was actually the one who started the Special Olympics, so she has always been important to the cause.

What beautiful words, Maria! Your mom would be both proud of you and the park! Keep up the loving support for the cause!

Maria Special Olympics 2011

The Special Olympics World Games 2011 is being held in Greece, at the Kallimarmaron Panthinaikon Olympic Stadium, where the first olympics of the modern era was located!

We absolutely LOVE seeing support for these games, and this year was no exception! In attendance was Maria Menounos, Maria Shriver, Stevie Wonder, and Venessa Williams!

Menounos presented a dedication to the late Eunice Kennedy Shriver, founder of Special Olympics and introduced the 2011 Special Olympics Global Messengers. Stevie and Venessa were also a part of the opening ceremonies.

Here's what else Maria did:

While in Athens, Menounos spent time with the athletes, Global Messengers, and volunteers. She participated in the official Special Olympics press conference, moderated a Special Olympics Conversation Series “How Do We Tell Special Olympics Story” and took in the games.

What a fantastic thing to do, and what a wonderful way to show your support to these very important and inspiring games!

We DEF wish that more celebs would help out, because this is such a worthy cause!

Good luck to all the participants!
