Bill Clinton Was Approached For “Dancing With The Stars”

“Actually, they contacted me once about ['Dancing with the Stars']. And I told them I didn’t have the time to train for it. You know you actually go out there and train — you really work at it. Just last night Hillary said to me, ‘You know, when I’m not Secretary of State anymore, we should go take dancing lessons.’ So we’ll start with the tango.”

Bill Clinton explains on “The Rachael Ray Show” that he was approached to do “Dancing with the Stars,” but turned it down because of the time commitment. Man, oh man, would I love to be a fly on the wall when Bill and Hillary take their tango lesson. I am now imaging Bill with a rose in his mouth. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Cheryl Burke Wants Bill Clinton On “Dancing With The Stars”

“If I could pick one person to dance with, it would be Bill Clinton or Bradley Cooper. I think Mr. Clinton has a charm about him. He’s very charming and I think he can talk his way into anything.”

—Cheryl Burke of “Dancing with the Stars” tells Huffington Post about her dream partner for the show. I certainly hope Slick Willy is listening, because watching him do the tango in a sequined suit would be amazing. In this interview, Cheryl also revealed that, with the exception of Drew Lachey and Ian Ziering, she’s always had to Google her dance partners on the show to find out who the heck they are. Ouch.

Bill Clinton’s My Little Pony Knowledge Is Put To The Test

When I was a kid, I begged my parents for months to get me a “Mothers The Pony.” They’d go to toy store after toy store, and no one would have any idea what they were talking about because I’d gotten the name wrong—I, of course, meant that I wanted a My Little Pony. Apparently, Bill Clinton knows more about the pastel ponies than I did. Over the weekend, Peter Sagal interviewed Bill on NPR. After asking some fun questions like, “What is more fun—being president or former president?” and “Did Hilary have to give you any lessons in standing to the side and gazing adoringly?,” Peter got to the segment of his show called “Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me,” where he asks people questions about a topic they really shouldn’t know all that much about. The category he decided to give Bill: My Little Pony. Keep reading »

Bill Clinton Turns Down “30 Rock” Cameo, But Says Yes To “The Hangover 2″

Okay, so I’m confused. “30 Rock” is about to film its 100th episode, and to mark the occasion Tina Fey extended an invitation to Bill Clinton to be a guest star on the show. Why? Most people seem to think that she wanted him to match wits with Alec Baldwin’s character, Jack Donaghy, who is super conservative. The whole thing could have been awesome and totally hilarious. Bill could even have played a few bars on the saxophone for good measure! But, his staff turned down the offer. “The request was made and immediately denied without asking him,” a Clinton rep said.

Chelsea Clinton’s Wedding: 10 Things We Hope Happen

Generally, I’m not that enthused about weddings. But if I got an invite to Chelsea Clinton‘s wedding to Marc Mezvinsky, I’d be there in a second. After a year of speculation, new details have finally emerged about the mega-party of the summer. It looks like it’ll be happening on July 31st. While people thought it’d be taking place on Martha’s Vineyard, it now appears that Chelsea will be tying the knot in upstate New York at the estate formerly owned by John Jacob Astor IV, an amazing spot that has 50 acres of land, a facade modeled after Versailles, indoor tennis courts and a marble pool. Chelsea is going to rock an Oscar de la Renta gown, but, beyond that, we don’t know a whole lot about what’ll be going down. [Huffington Post, NY Daily News]

Since the Clintons are being super-secretive, we have no choice but to speculate. After the jump, check out a few things we hope happens on Chelsea’s big day. Keep reading »

Quotable: Chelsea Clinton Puts Bill On A Wedding Diet

“She doesn’t think I’m in shape to handle it. You know, she told me the other day, she said, ‘Dad the only thing you gotta do is walk me down the aisle and you need to look good.’ So I said ‘Well, what’s your definition [of good]?’ And she said: ‘Oh, about 15 pounds.’ So I’m halfway home.”

Jenna Bush And Bill Clinton Talk Wedding Planning


I wasn’t the biggest fan of “The Today Show” handing Jenna Bush the coveted role of correspondent. But yesterday, she did an interview that was kind of cute … with Bill Clinton. “I’m sure this is a rarity, a Bush interviewing a Clinton,” she said. “They joke that you’re my grandfather’s stepson because he talks about you more than anyone else in the family.” The two talked Haiti and, of course, wedding planning since Chelsea is getting hitched soon. “The only part of the planning I do is pay the bills,” said Bill. “But I’m participating. Chelsea’s been good enough to include me in the decisions they’re making … I admire my prospective son-in-law. I’m happy about that, but that doesn’t mean it will be easy. I just hope I can keep it together when I walk her down the aisle.” Aww, Bill Clinton. Kinda sleazy dude; adorable, proud papa. [MSNBC] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Bill Clinton (And Gender Equality!) Makes Us Swoon

  • Gender equality got its due today at the former president’s Clinton Global Initiative. Diane Sawyer moderated a panel with the head of Women For Women International, the head of the World Bank and several big-time CEOs. Clinton himself told guests at the session, “Whether the issue is improving the involvement of young women and girls in education, to climate change and all political, economic, and social issues in between, I think empowering women is central to what the world has to do in the 21st century.” Damn straight! [AP]—He probably thinks people could start by showing some respect to his wife!
