Barack Obama at 2015 White House Correspondents Dinner: EFF IT ALL!
Republicans have been saying for years that Barack Obama has no business being President.
And the Commander-in-Chief sort of proved them right last night... because he clearly should be a stand-up comedian instead!
As he proved at the 2013 White House Correspondents Dinner and 2014 White House Correspondents Dinner, Obama can deliver a line with the best of them, taking aim at this year's light-hearted event at such targets as:
- Donald Trump.
- The belief that he's Muslim.
- Indiana's religious freedom act.
- John Boehner
- Dick Cheney.
And a whole lot more! Check out the following photo and quote gallery to relive Obama's best zingers, including his new DGAF attitude and his unique take on a "Bucket List."
Kim Richards: Rehab-Bound After Drunken Arrest
Kim Richards has taken the first step on a hopeful path to recovery:
The reality star has admitted she needs professional assistance.
According to TMZ insiders, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star - who was arrested for drunken behavior on April 16 - has checked into a Malibu rehab facility.
Richards allegedly had way too much to drink at a lunch in the Beverly Hills Hotel... locked herself in the bathroom... and then kicked a police officer after being taken into custody.
She was booked and charged with trespassing, resisting arrest, public intoxication, and battery.
The issue of Kim's sobriety was a issue of contention for cast members and for anyone who chose to watch to watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online.
Richards swore throughout the season that she was sober, but fights broke out with Lisa Rinna and sister Kyle over the validity of this statement.
Since her embarrassing arrest, the rumor mill has been churning over whether or not Kim Richards will return next year to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
One report said Richard had to attend rehab if there were any chance for her to continue on Bravo, which may explain why TMZ writes Kim will remain at this facility "for as long as it takes."
We hope she gets better.
Nepal Earthquake Claims Life of Sophia Bush Ex-Boyfriend
According to various reports, the death toll from the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that hit Nepal on Saturday has risen to over 1,300 individuals.
At least 10 of the deceased were attempting to scale Mount Everest, with the first reported American death being that of Dan Fredinburg.
A Google executive based in California, Fredinburg has a connection to Hollywood:
He dated Sophia Bush for a long period of time before the couple split in February of last year.
Upon learning of the tragic news, the former One Tree Hill actress and ongoing Chicago PD star posted a heartfelt message on Instagram.
"There are no adequate words. Today I find myself attempting to pick up the pieces of my heart that have broken into such tiny shards, I'll likely never find them all," Bush wrote.
"Today I, and so many of my loved ones, lost an incredible friend. Dan Fredinburg was one-of-a-kind. Fearless. Funny. A dancing robot who liked to ride dinosaurs and chase the sun and envision a better future for the world."
His brain knew how to build it. His heart was constantly evolving to push himself to make it so. He was one of my favorite human beings on Earth. He was one of the great loves of my life. He was one of my truest friends. He was an incredible brother, a brilliant engineer, and a damn good man. I'm devastated and simultaneously so deeply grateful to have known and loved him, and to have counted him as one of my tribe.
I was so looking forward to our planned download of "all the things" when he got home. I am crushed that I will never hear that story. I am crushed knowing that there are over 1,000 people in Nepal suffering this exact feeling, knowing that they too will never hear another tale about an adventure lived from someone that they love. Disasters like this are often unquantifiable, the enormity is too much to understand.
Please remember that each person who is now gone was someone's Dan. Please remember that our time on this Earth is not guaranteed. Please tell those you love that you do. Right now. This very minute. And please send a kiss to the sky for my friend Dan.
His energy is so big and so bright, and it's all around us, so put some love toward him today. And then hug your loved ones again.
The earthquake struck around 1:56 a.m. ET, generating at least 15 aftershocks and triggering avalanches on Everest.
We send our thoughts and prayers to all affected by this natural disaster.
Tyga Tattoos Kylie Jenner's Name on His Arm!!!
Even though they've made little to no effort to conceal their relationship, we still haven't received any official confirmation that Kylie Jenner and Tyga are dating.
There's good reason for this, as Tyga is 25 and Kylie is 17, which means if the rapper confessed to a sexual relationship with his "best friend," he might find himself doing time in one of the few places where his neck tattoos wouldn't seem quite so ridiculous.
Hey, speaking of tattoos...it looks as though Tyga may have let the cat out of the bag (pun intended) with his latest ink:
The photo on the left shows T-Raw (apparently hanging with some girl who's about to audition for a stage production of Pocahontas) sporting an inner-arm tat that clearly reads "Kylie."
Most fans dismissed the ink as fake (because how could a grown man be so stupid as to tattoo a teenage girl's name on his arm?), but the photo on the right shows Tyga in different clothes, with the Kylie tattoo still visible on his right arm.
Given the recent baby mama drama that's affected their relationship, we wouldn't be surprised if Tyga went through with the tat as a sort of grand gesture to prove his commitment to Kylie.
On Thursday, Tyga's ex, Blac Chyna, trolled Kylie on Instagram by mocking her giant lips in a ridiculous selfie.
The next day, Blac posted a text conversation in which Tyga seemed to be begging her to take him back.
That's a double-whammy that would leave any guy scrambling to get out of the doghouse - and who knows? - maybe all the jewelry stores were closed by the time the sh-t hit the fan.
We hope for Tyga's sake that the ink is temporary, but even if it is the real deal, it's still not as dumb as the Kylie Jenner lip challenge.
Bruce Jenner Interview: HOW Many People Tuned In?!?
Bruce Jenner got a very important message out last night to a very large television audience.
The reality star's much-hyped sit-down with Diane Sawyer, during which Jenner said he was a woman, was viewed on Friday evening by 17 million people.
It also scored a 5.2 rating among the key advertising demographic of 18-49-year olds, which marks a 400 percent increase over the last new episode of 20/20.
The fascinating Q&A featured a number of candid admission from Jenner, foremost among them:
- He believes he has the "soul" of a woman.
- It is very possible he gets sexual reassignment surgery down the line (he needs a "va-jay-jay," as he said Khloe Kardashian would explain it).
- Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian both saw him wearing women's clothing at various points in the past.
- He has been taking hormones for the past 18 months.
- He will soon leave the spotlight and re-emerge as a female, replete with a different name (which he did not want to make public last night).
Celebrity reaction has been very positive to Jenner's interview, with stars from across all industries praising Bruce's honesty, along with his mission to be a role model in the transgender universe.
At one point, Jenner said he hopes to help "change the world" in terms of how people in his situation are viewed and received by the public.
Here is a look at what Jenner's family members, along with a number of singers/actors/actresses/talk show hosts, have had to say about the revealing special:
Game of Thrones Season 5 Episode 3 Photos: Say Hi to the High Sparrow!
Thus far, season 5 of Game of Thrones has given us a the death of a Wildling king, the promise of two fan favorites finally crossing paths, and some seriously disobedient dragons.
Thanks to teasers and interviews with the cast, we have some idea of what to expect going forward (including more torture from Ramsay Bolton. Oh, please don't let it be this week! We're not ready!), but if the GoT showrunners have taught us anything thus far, it's that they've always got plenty of surprises up their baggy maester's sleeves.
We already showed you the teaser for Game of Thrones Season 5 Episode 3, now we present some spoiler-free (we think) photos to further whet your appetite:
As far as we can tell, it's shaping up to be a rough week for Cersei. Not only is Margaery Tyrell about to de-throne her by marrying Tommen, but her resilient brother Tyrion is on the road to forming an alliance with the Khaleesi herself.
Of course, Cersei's second-creepster-in-command, Qyburn, also makes an appearance in this episode, so maybe she's got something in store for her rivals.
Unfortunately, it looks as though Ramsay will also rear his ugly head this week, so don't say we didn't warn you about the nightmare fuel that's sure to be coming your way.
Watch Game of Thrones online at TV Fanatic if you still need to get caught up in time for the episode three, and check out our list of season five's newest characters for a glimpse of the badasses you might be meeting on Sunday night.
Bruce Jenner Receives Praise and Support from Stars Everywhere: Read Their Messages!
The much-hyped Bruce Jenner interview with Diane Sawyer has come and gone.
But its impact is likely to be felt for years, if not generations, to come.
The reality star and former Olympic Gold Medalist sat in front of millions of viewers on Friday night and shed some important light on living life as a transgender individual, saying in no uncertain terms:
"For all intents and purposes, I am a woman."
With those words, the Bruce Jenner sex change went from being a punchline to a source of inspiration.
Jenner also opened up about him Kim Kardashian was the first family member to know of his female soul, going on to say the following:
- He's not gay. He's never slept with a man.
- He "downplayed" his cross-dressing while married to Kris Jenner, but she knew about it and mostly ignored it.
- He's a "conservative" Republican.
- He wants to be a transgender role model: "I had this feeling, kind of a revelation, that maybe this is my cause in life. This is why God put me on this earth ... to deal with this issue.'
- After being caught last year getting a tracheal shave, he contemplated suicide. Fortunately, he later thought: I can't do something like that. I want to know how this story ends.
- He's taking hormones and he plans on undergoing some other physical changes: "Those are all things that are out there in the future for me to explore. I would do it so quietly, no one in the world would ever know."
In response to these revelations, Twitter blew up last night, mostly with heaps of praise from celebrities who admire Jenner's courage to talk about this important cause.

Kris Humphries During Bruce Jenner Interview: Glad I Got Out When I Did!
Pretty much all of Hollywood and America are praising last night's Bruce Jenner interview, hailing the Olympic great and reality TV patriarch for his bravery.
Kris Humphries ... is one of the outliers.
While Bruce was opening up to Diane Sawyer about his lifelong gender identity struggle, and numerous never-before-revealed details, Kris was snarking on Twitter.
"Man, I'm glad I got out when I did," Humphries, who was married to Kim Kardashian for a whole 72 days in 2011, idiotically posted to his Twitter.
Given its timing, that comment from the Washington Wizards forward can only be a cheap shot at Bruce Jenner and the family he briefly married into.
Pretty amazing, that as Bruce was baring his soul on ABC News about how Kim Kardashian was the first to know about his transition, Kris Tweeted that.
For all the bad press Kanye West gets, Kim definitely traded up in the husband department, as she credits 'Ye with helping her accept and understand Bruce.
She's not perfect, but her instincts paid off here. On a side note, it's well documented that Kim blindsided Kris, so him "getting out" was not of his own volition.
Idiots aside, the 65-year-old Bruce is being widely celebrated for going public with his journey, telling Sawyer he has always been "mostly feminine" in spirit.
"That is her," Bruce says when shown a photo of himself competing in the Olympic decathlon, the moment that defined him long before the Kardashians.
Pretty powerful stuff, no doubt about it.
Last night, Jenner tearfully described the moment when he first tried on a dress at age eight and felt a freedom and comfort that would long elude him.
He amazingly revealed that he was burdened by his uncertainty about his sexual identity through his athletic triumphs and all three of his marriages.
He began the process of transitioning between his second marriage to Linda Thompson and his third marriage to Kris Jenner, but tabled it for 25 years.
After they split, he started up again.
Kendall and Kylie Jenner found out when they spotted their dad wearing a dress, but like the rest of his family, they are 110 percent on Team Bruce.
Jared Leto as The Joker: First Crazy Look!
Think Jared Leto gave us our first photo at his version of The Joker on Snapchat last week? Think again.
David Ayer, director of the upcoming Suicide Squad movie, has truly teased what the Oscar winning-actor will look like as the iconic DC villain via a brand new Twitter photo.
And it's all kinds of crazy awesome.
The image of Leto (which Ayer unveiled late Friday evening to celebrate the Joker’s 75th anniversary) depicts a very different baddie from the one portrayed in Batman stories of the past.
Gone is the suit-clad Jack Nicholson version. Gone is the shaggy, disheveled appearance of Heath Ledger’s take.
In their place, this Joker comes across as especially maniacal, rocking some major tattoos, chrome teeth and a slicked back, bright green tuft of hair.
He's also wearing a purple glove.
"The Suicide Squad wishes you a Happy Anniversary Mr. J! #Joker75 #SuicideSquad @WarnerBrosEnt @DCComics," Ayer wrote as a caption.
So... what do you think? Are you excited to see the large-penised Leto in this beloved role?
Bruce Jenner Sex Change: Kim Kardashian Was the First to Know, Says Kanye Helped Her Accept It!
Of all the revelations on tonight's long-awaited Bruce Jenner-Diane Sawyer interview, one of the most surprising may have come when Jenner revealed that the first of his many kids and step-kids to learn about his gender identity was none other than Kim Kardashian.
Bruce stated that Kim saw him wearing a dress several years before he shared his secret with his other kids.
Kim apparently had no visible reaction to the sight of her stepfather dressed as a woman. As Bruce tells it, she simply "got in her car and went for a drive."
When his youngest daughters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, spotted him wearing a dress on their in-home security camera shortly thereafter, they were similarly drumbstruck, believing, Bruce says, "that it was not something they could discuss."
Kim initially struggled with Bruce's hidden identity, but during a recent hear-to-heart with Jenner, she revealed that a surprising source of compassion helped her come around.
Bruce says Kim said to him, "You know what turned me around? Kanye."
"I can be married to the most beautiful woman in the world," Kanye reportedly said to Kim. "I can have the most beautiful daughter in the world. I have that. But I'm nothing if I can't be myself."
So it looks like the reports of Kim fully supporting Bruce on his journey were entirely true, and the rumors of her being embarrassed by her beloved stepdad were simply the most vicious kind of tabloid rumor.
As for the many, many reports of Kanye being a narcissistic jerk? Well, maybe we'll have to re-think those. Maybe.
