Michelle Obama's Fashionable Weekend

Say what you want about her new bangs, but Michelle Obama knocked it out of the park with her fashion choices this weekend. Here's a quick rundown of her Inauguration looks:

 The First Lady is wearing designer Thom Browne. He actually submitted the idea for the coat to the White House weeks ago, but had no idea if Mrs. O would wear his design.

Monday night she went back to her choice designer, Jason Wu, who created this red stunner for her.

And on Tuesday morning, she wowed the crowd again with a custom ivory wool-applique 3/4 sleeve coat and dress by Naeem Khan for the National Prayer Service.

Inauguration Musicians

The White House has tried to tamp down expectations about President Obama's inauguration this go 'round, but it definitely won't be lacking in star power. Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Clarkson and James Taylor will all perform at the inauguration, the presidential inaugural committee announced today.

"Vice President Biden and I are honored to have these wonderfully talented musical artists perform at the Inaugural ceremony," Preisdent Obama said in a statement. "Their music is often at the heart of the American story and speaks to folks across the country."

 In other musical news, Ke$ha is bringing her glitter-throwing, club-thumping beats to Washington as well. The pop star will headline the Musicians on Call Presidential Inaugural Charity Benefit in Washington, produced and sponsored by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). DJ Jazzy Jeff will be spinning records as the charity event’s official DJ.

Charlie Sheen Versus The Mayor

Los Angeles Mayor and former DNC chairman Antonio Villaraigosa, has somehow gotten himself into an argument of sorts with Charlie Sheen--all thanks to an incriminating Twitpic. Sheen claims that he partied with Villaraigosa for about two hours in Mexico last month at a bar opening. Villaraigosa says no way.

Both men were both in Cabo for said bar opening back in December. At the time, Sheen tweeted a picture of himself with the mayor saying, "He knows how to party." Well, that tweet was quickly deleted.

“I had a three minute conversation with him, I took a picture with him… I take a picture virtually every single day, 50 times, and I took a picture with him. It's as simple as that. I have never said no to anyone who wanted to take a picture. It's just that simple,” Villaraigosa told NBC's Los Angeles affiliate. Meanwhile, Sheen toldTMZ the mayor was lying.

My suggestion...never mess with a Warlock.

Pelosi on 30 Rock

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi will get some camera time off the hill this month. Pelosi will have a cameo in the series finale of NBC's sitcom "30 Rock.” "I would do almost anything Tina Fey asks me to do," Pelosi told The Washington Post on Thursday. "I'm flattered that they asked me to make a cameo in the series finale. I had a lot fun." The episode -- which will air 8 p.m. on Jan. 31 -- was filmed in early December.

Edwin Edwards Reality Show

Set your DVR! Former Louisiana Gov. Edwin Edwards and his family are the subject of a new docu-series premiering next month on A&E. Entertainment Weekly reports:  

The Governor’s Wife will star 85-year-old Edwin Edwards and his 34-year-old wife, Trina, along with several of their children from previous marriages. Edwards served four times as Louisiana’s governor over the course of three decades, and also served eight years in federal prison for crimes committed while he was in office. In 2001, Edwards was convicted on bribery and extortion charges. He became pen pals with Trina during his prison stint and they married after his release last year. The show will focus on Edwin and Trina’s May-December relationship and follow Edwin’s daughters (Anna, a 62-year-old, four-time divorcée and Victoria, a 60-year-old ex-showgirl) along Trina’s sons (Logan, 15 and Trevor, 13).

Viral Picture

White House photographer Pete Souza released some of his favorite photos from last year, but one in particular has generated a lot of buzz on the web. The picture of President Obama being briefed for the first time on the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT has gone viral on Twitter and elsewhere.

Today's Readout

Press Pool host Julie Mason and I chat about Joe Biden's stellar performance on CSPAN 2 and some more New Years resolutions:

White House New Years Resolutions

You're not the only one who's making some changes in 2013. President Obama and the White House staff have a few resolutions of their own in this week's episode of "West Wing Week."

Inauguration Update

An interesting email made its way into my inbox yesterday afternoon. The Presidential Inauguration Committee is happy to announce that their swag shop is officially open. Get your Obama Inaugural keepsakes and tchotkes while their hot! Politico’s Donovan Slack says, “The Presidential Inaugural Committee officially kicked off memorabilia sales Thursday with the opening of its online store and announced plans to open a retail location on F Street before the inauguration Jan. 21."

And speaking of Inauguration, DC residents will be happy to know the celebration will go into the wee hours at some bars around town. Guest of a Guest says, “DC's Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA) recently released applications to bars that want to be open until 4am during the entire week of Inauguration! Bars may apply to be open for 8 days for a small fee, beginning on Monday night, January 14, to Monday night, January 22.” Who do you think you'll see more of at the bar? Democrats or Republicans?

Bristol Palin's Being Stalked

TMZ reported Thursday that Bristol Palin has filed for legal protection from an obsessed stalker. They claim the man sent her a wedding proposal (complete with ring) and even showed up at her mother’s house on her son's birthday. From TMZ:
According to court docs ... the "Dancing with the Stars" all-star obtained a temporary restraining against Michael Cummings -- a 39-year-old Texan she claims she's never met ... and only came into contact with after he sent her an engagement ring, along with a note saying, "I (heart) you." Bristol alleges Cummings was later spotted at her mom Sarah Palin's house on December 27 -- Tripp's fourth birthday -- at which point she immediately filed for protection. She's hoping to make the order more permanent at a hearing later this month.

White House Chronicle

No Readout today :-( So instead, here's an episode of White House Chronicle from last month with QGA's Adam Bemlar, POLITICO's Donovan Slack, and the one and only Llewellyn King. Let's see how right we were about the fiscal cliff.

Reagan's Home For Sale

Ronald Reagans’ home of the future is on the market for just under $5 million. According to the Washington Times, “In 1956, Ronald and Nancy Reagan helped design their onetime residence: a 4,764-square-foot, four-bedroom, four-bath ranch house in the tony Pacific Palisades neighborhood in west Los Angeles — now up for for sale. There are glass-walled rooms, fabulous views, an indoor courtyard, vaulted ceilings, streamlined cabinets, granite walls, den with wet bar, all manner of electric gadgetry, swimming pool and sprawling open spaces for entertaining."

How Canada does Inauguration 2013

With just under three weeks until President Obama's Inauguration (part deux), embassies all over DC are getting ready to host their own celebrations. But one embassy in particular has some pretty prime real estate along the parade route the First Family will walk. That would be the Embassy of Canada. Yeas and Nays says, “So what do they plan to do with it? For the second time in a row, the Embassy of Canada will host an invite-only tailgate party, complete with Canadian food and booze. The fete will feature treats like Tim Horton's coffee, Beaver Tails pastries (which POTUS devoured on a trip to Canada), Crown Royal cocktails and, of course, poutine -- Quebec's popular dish made with french fries, gravy and cheese curd. Since it is an inauguration party after all, guests will be able to watch live coverage of the swearing-in and be able to see the parade live as it passes by the embassy.”

Philly Tribune Article

Earlier this week, the Philly Tribune's Charles Ellison wrote a great piece on the shooting in Newtown and the role race plays in how the media covers tragedies in urban areas. Yours truly is quoted on the role social media plays in news coverage.

First Readout of the New Year

Chock full of some really great New Years resolutions, the host of the Press Pool, Julie Mason, and I chat about some of the things we're looking forward to in 2013.

POTUS Retrospective

In case you missed the channel's look-back at the year in politics, here are a few snippets from the good, the bad, and the ugly that was 2012.

Trump Slams GOP on Fiscal Cliff Deal

The always chatty Donald Trump went on a Twitter tirade on Tuesday, slamming his fellow GOPers for their bargaining skills. He tweeted that Republicans “may be the worst negotiators in history.” The Donald was, of course, speaking about the last-minute fiscal cliff deal, which was passed in the Senate early Tuesday morning and the House late Tuesday evening. Trump continued blasting his party via Twitter, posting, “Obama and the Democrats are laughing at the deal they just made…the Republicans got nothing!” Mere hours earlier, Trump had Tweeted that Republicans “have all the cards…but they just don’t know it.”

 Does any Republican have the ability to negotiate?

This is a terrible deal for the country and an embarrassment for Republicans!

Kim K's Baby Bump and Greta Van Sustren?

If you've been following the Readout, you probably already know that Kim Kardashian has been Greta Van Sustren's guest to the White House Correspondents Dinner the past two years in a row. So naturally, when the news of the newest Kardashian broke on Sunday, the Hill's Judy Kurtz wanted reaction for the Fox News host. More from Kurtz:

Kardashian’s boyfriend, rapper Kanye West, delivered the pregnancy news at a Sunday concert. Van Susteren and her lawyer husband, John Coale, invited Kardashian to be their guest to the White House Correspondents Association Dinner in 2011....When asked about the Kardashian clan’s upcoming newest member, the “On the Record” host told ITK in an email, “I have known Kim for some time. She is from a very close knit family and I am sure the whole family is thrilled there will be a new addition."
Congrats Kim-ye on the baby news and congrats to Kris Humphries (who Kardashian is still legally married to) on his sorta-step child.
