House Party

After reportedly refusing to attend the White House Correspondents' Dinner for not being "A-listy" enough, Heidi Montag & Spencer Pratt decided to show up for the event anyways ... where they were met by folks like their Hills nemesis Lauren LC Conrad, the newly-engaged (reportedly [but I'm not buying it] pregs) Ashlee Simpson & Pete Wentz, Pamela Anderson and other likewise inappropriate guests. And while I'm not all that surprised that Speidi decided to attend the White House event anyways (those two would go to the opening of an envelope if there was at least one camera crew there ... A-listy or not), I am a bit surprised that Heidi Montag decided to wear the exact same Chloe outfit (both dress AND shoes) that she wore exactly one week ago at her Heidiwood for Anchor Blue launch event at Kitson in West Hollywood:

Uhhh ... no. She even wore the same watch! Granted, it's a very nice outfit but was it really necessary to wear the exact same thing two Saturdays in a row to two different high profile events? Okay, so the Kitson launch wasn't quite as high-profile as the White House thing but still ... it seems little tacky to me.

Anyways ... here are a few pics of some of the other folks who attended last night's White House Correspondent’s Dinner in Washington DC:

It isn't every night that celebs like Ashlee Simpson, Lauren Conrad, Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt, Pam Anderson and the Jonas Brothers descend on Washington, D.C. The stars – along with Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner, Rob Lowe, Marcia Cross and Gossip Girl star Ed Westwick – were guests of various news organizations for the White House Correspondents' Association dinner Saturday night. Simpson's baby bump was barely visible in her black dress. The 23-year-old attended the event with fiancée Pete Wentz. The celebs were a welcome diversion from the otherwise tepid annual event, in which President Bush and Late Late Show host Craig Ferguson poked fun at themselves and the presidential candidates in front of an audience of the Washington press corps. "Pamela Anderson and Mitt Romney in the same room?" Bush said. "Isn't that one of the signs of the apocalypse?" Bush also joked about his daughter Jenna's May 10 wedding to fiancé Henry Hager. "Senator [John] McCain's not here," the president told the audience. "He probably wanted to distance himself from me a little bit. You know, he's not alone. Jenna's moving out too." He added, "[Hillary] Clinton couldn't get in because of sniper fire and Sen. [Barack] Obama's at church." During Ferguson's speech, he joked to the president, "By the way, you were fantastic on Deal or No Deal."

Hahhahahaha ... seriously, what a strange mix of people culled together from various outlets to hang out with the president at the White House. If this isn't the surest sign that the White House needs to be totally cleaned out so that a new leader can move in and take control of the country then I don't know what is. [Source]
