The Obama White House is notoriously crush-worthy. I will fully fess up to having crushed on I-can-dunk-and-assist-the-president Reggie Love and wordsmith hottie Jon Favreau. I’ve also always been into Peter Orszag, director of the Office of Management and Budget. He’s distinguished, handsome, good with numbers, and very powerful—I’ve even suggested that Jennifer Aniston and Elin Nordgren give the 41-year-old divorcee a holler. But my crush may be over. The NY Post has dug up some dirt on Orszag. For a long time, he was dating Claire Milonas, a Greek shipping heiress. She had his baby in mid-November. Only, by that point Orszag had already broken up with her and started dating ABC News anchor Bianna Golodryga, who he met at the White House Correspondents Dinner—those two are now engaged. But, according to the math, Milonas must have been three months pregnant when the pair broke up. And it sure looks like Orszag might have ditched her for the better (though not richer) option. Hardly a scandal of John Edwards proportions, but enough for me to scribble out the heart around his name in my notebook. [NY Post] Keep reading »
If you’ve ever watched “Rock of Love,” you’re well aware that dating a rock star is passe. Ditto for athletes—who wants a dude whose bicep measurement is bigger than his IQ? No, there’s a new type of guy to lust after—Washington politicos. The Obama administration is ushering in a new throng of young, brilliant, and (dare we say) extremely hot politicians, and Hollywood’s leading ladies are taking notice. Rashida Jones, of “The Office” and “Parks and Recreation,” is currently dating President Obama’s chief speechwriter, Jon Favreau. Sure, he may be the one who drunkenly groped a Hillary Clinton cut-out during last year’s primary, but this dude is (a) adorable and (b) has one of the highest ranking jobs in the country even though he’s only 27. The couple made their first appearance at the White House Correspondents Dinner and have since been spotted cuddling at a hip Georgetown bar. [Celebitchy]
Then there’s “Private Practice” star Kate Walsh, who’s been getting cozy with Sean Smith, deputy assistant secretary for public affairs at the Department of Homeland Security. (You know he’s important because his title is so long.) The two were apparently “phone friends” for months, but recently went public. Sean reportedly sent her flowers the day after the Correspondents Dinner to thank her for being his date. Awww…sweet.
We hope other Hollywood ladies catch on. Here are a few more civil unions we have in mind. Keep reading »
