All topics were fair game at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner Saturday night. Cecily Strong and President Obama exchanged zingers about every political hot button. “Your hair is so white now, it can talk back to the police,” the “SNL” star told the President. “It’s a dream to sit next to you but it is a nightmare to eat next to you,” she then told Michelle Obama. He kidded, “Dick Cheney says I’m the worst president of his lifetime, which is interesting, because I think Dick Cheney is the worst president of my lifetime.” He also took a shot at the Veep: “I feel more loose and relaxed than ever. Those Joe Biden shoulder massages are like magic. You should try one.” ‘Liking Michelle’s curls!
“For all intents and purposes, I’m a woman.” That was Bruce Jenner’s revelation to ABC’s Diane Sawyer during her “20/20” interview with him. He’s happier than ever no longer “living a lie. The female side is part of me. That’s who I am.” He also seemed quite grateful for his supportive family. “Bruce seems very relieved that the interview finally aired,” a source told People. “He is overwhelmed by all the positive comments on social media following the interview.”
After storming off Dr. Phil’s show, Kim Richards has finally checked herself into rehab. Her decision also comes after the “Real Housewife of Beverly Hills” was arrested after allegedly getting into a drunken kerfuffle with a police officer at the Beverly Hills Hotel. When he confronts her about the incident in the full interview, set to air tomorrow, she looked shocked, asking, “Is this an intervention? I’m sorry I can’t. I’m sorry.” Then she took off her mic and left the interview. Her kids, Brooke, Chad and Kimberly were all there to support her.
