The First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, raised nearly $1 million last night at a fundraiser featuring a number of Hollywood stars.
The A-list party was held in the luxurious modern Westwood, Calif., home of Michael S. Smith – a designer who decorated the White House for the Obamas – and James Costos. Tickets ranged in price from $1,500 to $35,800.
Michelle told the crowd of more than 350 guests that her husband, Barack Obama, was even involved in the decorating of their new home.
“Believe it or not, the President has opinions about his drapes,” she said.

The Real Housewives of D.C. might be no more, but Bravo viewers need not worry that they’ll suffer through a decreased number of installments in this franchise. The Hollywood Reporter confirms that casting is underway for The Real Housewives of Toronto.
It’s unclear if this series will receive an official greenlight, or if it will air in the United States if it ever does go forward.
But let’s hope so, right? As the recent actions of Teresa Giudice prove, these are women that absolutely deserve the fame and money that comes along with their own show.
Here is the original More >
Absurd as it is that we’re even talking about this, Donald Trump confirmed this week that he is, in fact an American citizen, with the documentation to prove it.
This hilarious/sad saga began last week with Trump bloviating at length on The View about President Obama’s birth certificate and why he hasn’t produced it.
To further his alleged point (that Obama is hiding something), Trump released what he thought was his own birth certificate Monday … only it wasn’t.
The document Trump gave to a conservative website Monday turned out to be a mere “certificate of live birth,” not an officialMore >

A family spokesperson confirms that Ferraro succombed to blood cancer at Massachusetts General Hospital around 10 a.m. In 1984, the three-term congresswoman from Queens joined Walter Mondale’s Presidential ticket in an election against Ronald Reagon and George H.W. Bush.

Soon after her passing, Mondale paid tribute to his former running mate, remember her “a remarkable woman and a dear human being” andMore >
Singer Prince could find himself without a mansion to call his own. The purple clad singer is currently undergoing the consequences of a court battle that began after a concert he canceled in Ireland three years ago.
Prince was suppose to perform at Croke Park in Dublin, but canceled just 13 days before the show was to go live in June 2008. At the time Prince gave no reason for the cancellation and left MCD holding to refund 55,000 fans.
In Feb. 2010 MCD sued prince and they agreed to $2 million in payments from the singer, however Prince has failed to pay that money by the March 2010More >
Randy and Evi Quaid are officially Canadian! The Quaids have been waiting for citizenship in the country since they fled the United States in 2010 over legal troubles and the fear that a group of Hollywood actor killers known as the “starwhackers” were out to kill them.
It was actually Evi Quaid who was given citizenship, which gives her husband the right to stay in the country and paves the way for him to become a Canadian citizen as well.
It’s still unclear what type of action will be taken against the Quaids who were found squatting in a home they once owned before fleeing the countryMore >
This is simply horrific:
CBS News reports that Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent Lara Logan, covering the political uprising in Egypt, was attacked on Friday, moments after President Hosni Mubarak resigned his post.
According to the network, Logan was “separated from her crew” during the frenzy of Mubarak’s resignation and “suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers.”
Reunited with her team, Logan returned to her hotel and was flown to the United States SaturdayMore >
If the First Lady of the United States were asked to consolidate her Valentine’s Day advice in one word, Michelle Obama’s choice would be easy: Laugh.
She says it’s what she and President Barack Obama do, and it seems to work.
Through all the ups and downs and changes wrought by family, careers, relocation, campaigns and more, the Obamas’ marriage is going on 19 years.
“I think a lot of laughing,” the First Lady said this weekend at a White House luncheon with reporters who asked about the secret to the Obamas’ union.
“I think in our house we don’t take ourselves too seriously, andMore >
I love this country. I hate what’s happened to this country. We’re a laughingstock throughout the world.
So stated Donald Trump to Piers Morgan this week, hinting for the second time that he really might run for President of the United States. Because the world will be forced to take us seriously with hair such as that in the White House!
The Donald’s platform, based on his interview below? Down with China! He says of the nation: “I see them as the enemy. They want to take over this country economically. They are not really out-competing. They are cheating. And we have people who don’tMore >
Being a celebrity humanitarian is a great thing, but it can take it’s toll, take for example George Clooney is has been discovered recently contracted Malaria while on mission in Sudan.
For all you Clooney fans out there, he’s fine and has since been given a clean bill of health.
Clooney is a UN Ambassador and was visiting Africa in early January to work with the United Nations and Google towards setting up a satellite surveillance of the war torn nation which is on the brink of greater civil wars.
Piers Morgan tweeted about Clooney’s malaria this week:

(HMG Celebrity News) – Too bad, I thought they might make a great couple. But I have to believe Sandra Bullock on this one, who says newly single former “Proposal” co-star Ryan Reynolds, is a close friend, but not her lover. As we previously reported soon after Ryan and Scarlet Johansson announced they were bound for divorce, rumors of a possible romance between Reynolds and Bullock found fuel when the pair were seen dining together celebrating the New Year at Bess Bistro, the eatery in Austin, Texas which 46-year old Sandra bought back in 2006. Photos show them dining with threeMore >
She may be the First Lady of the United States, but Michelle Obama, who turns 47 today, still says that first and foremost, she is Malia and Sasha’s mom.
That’s indicative of her humility, but she’s so much more than that.
On top of providing many fashion-forward Michelle Obama pictures, she’s spent two years supporting military families, helping working women balance career and family, encouraging national service and promoting the arts and education.
Recently, Michelle launched the Let’s Move! campaign, which – much to Sarah Palin’s chagrin – strives to bring together community leaders,More >
With his arsenal of YouTube videos, Jared Lee Loughner has already given us a frightening look into his psyche.
Now, the public has received another look at the 22-year old accused of opening fire in an Arizona supermarket parking lot on Saturday, severely wounding Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and killing six onlookers.
It’s his mug shot, and it’s equally disturbing.
Loughner, who appeared briefly before a judge today, faces five federal charges: one count of attempted assassination of a member of Congress, two counts of killing an employee of the United States and two counts ofMore >
(HMG Celebrity News) – Such is the nature of television today that there are few filters and almost anything can be made into a special very quickly. The Discovery Channel is airing a prime time show set for Jan. 13 in the United Kingdom which will re-enact the Michael Jackson’s autopsy. In an open letter (via TMZ) sent to Discovery Communications on Wednesday, John Branca and John McClain co-executors of Jackson’s estate condemned the show entitled Michael Jackson’s Autopsy: What Really Killed Michael Jackson, as “in shockingly bad taste,” and inspired only ”blind desire to exploitMore >
