Her hubby was last year's #1 pick. My fave thing Mrs. O says is that she indulges in "bad tv" when she has an hour of "me" time during the week.... And congrats to Tyler Perry for making the list as well. Pics of The Obamas in Norway last night under the cut...

Real Housewives Of D.C. Foolery ALREADY!

Just when we thought only the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" were full of posers and foolery, "The Real Housewives of D.C." is off to the same start!  At the White House's first State Dinner last week, two people popped up in the mix--taking pics  in front of the media and with extremely powerful politicians--and they were NOT invited.  How'd they get in?  Secret Service is still trying to determine.  But they are now facing criminal charges because they were not on the guest list or seated at a table. The couple in question, Tareq and Michaele Salahi, are actually casted for the newest installment of "The Real Housewives of D.C."  And they decided to CRASH the State Dinner like it was some club or some ish.  D.C. and the White House are going nuts trying to figure out how some random people got so close to the President and the Prime Minister of India (the honoree) and other politicians like governors, mayors, and VP Biden.  The Salahis actually posted ALL the pics they took with these politicians at the party on their Facebook page, and that's how they got caught.  Smh. This is reportedly not the first time this couple has crashed a very high powered and tight security party.  It's also well known that Tareq's family business(a winery) has been facing several financial problems.  The couple's friends have even told the media they believe the Salahis are embezzling money from their own "charity organizations" that they founded just to keep their business afloat.  Michaele's hairdresser says they got a call hours before the event and when they asked homegirl to see the "White House State Dinner" invitation she kept talking about, she refused to show it.  Womp.  A film crew was also spotted filming the couple getting out of their SUV and walking up to the White House.  And Mrs. Salahi had a makeup artist fluff her up before getting out the car.

YBF CHICKS: Michelle Fenty & Halle Berry

There's another First Lady we feel the need to spotlight. Her name is also Michelle, she's also a lawyer, has fab kiddies, is well known for her fashion steps amongst the socialites in D.C., and her husband is a powerful politician. But her last name is Fenty. Essence did a featurette on the other First Lady of D.C. Michelle Fenty. And you know we love talking about fab chicks. So check it out here. We were secretly hoping we'd see Michelle around D.C. filming "Real Housewives of D.C." But y'all know Mayor Fenty probably wasn't feeling that.

In other fab chick news, Halle Berry is receiving the prestigious Sherry Lansing Leadership Award at The Hollywood Reporter’s 18th Annual Women in Entertainment Breakfast Presented by Lifetime. The star studded event will go down December 4th at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Here's a snippet from the press release:
Berry joins past recipients Barbara Walters, Meryl Streep, Jodie Foster and Glenn Close in receiving the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award for her trailblazing within the industry and for her generosity in giving back to the community at large. “The complex role that Halle Berry plays in life as a successful, versatile entertainment professional who is committed to furthering the well-being of others, especially minorities, is as inspiring as are her film roles,” said Guider. “The recognition is also wonderfully fitting in a year in which diversity has been embraced and rewarded at the highest levels of our government and culture.” Berry has worked consistently since Spike Lee’s “Jungle Fever” brought her national attention. In 2001, the world cheered when she became the first African American woman to take home the Best Actress Oscar® for “Monsters Ball.” A pioneer as a performer, she is also the national spokesperson for the Jenesse Center , a non-profit organization that provides support to heal families victimized by domestic violence.
Congrats to Halle. More when you read the rest...
