WHCD: The Guest List Roundup Thus Far
We're working procuring a who's-bringing-whom comprehensive guest list. (An activity we've heard called "reporting." Could someone from the NYT call and explain what that is?) Until then, a partial accounting/roundup of what's already out will have to do. As you may have read in this morning's Reliable Source, People's people include: "American Idol's"Randy Jacksonand his wifeErika, Former Pfc.Jessica Lynch,Richard Belzerand his wife,Harlee McBride,Serena WilliamsandChristopher Heinz. Butthe Olsen twins?Leiby'sfantasizing again. A source tells us that the Olsen's people told People that they aren't going at all.
Also reported by Leiby (though how can we trust him now?):
MSNBC: ApprenticeBill Rancic
Newsweek: Meg Ryan
Bloomberg: Anna Kournikova, Drew Carey, Minnie Driver,andCandice Bergen
CNN: Wayne Newton
WP: Cameron KerryandVincent D'Onofrio
ABC: Ben Affleck, Tom Brady, Rove, Powell, Rumsfeld, Shrum.
Someone who got a peek at the White House Correspondents Association master guest list also sends along the following boldface names, many already reported elsewhere. . .
"Paula Abdul, Clay Aiken, Sean Astin, Drew Barrymore, Simon Cowell, Hilary Duff(although I heard she's since canceled),Morgan Fairchild, Dule Hill, Mary Louise Parker, Meg Ryan, Ryan Seacrest." Our tipster points out that "the master list [is] nowhere near complete or final because they're submitted so early that it doesn't account for last-minute dropouts and add-ons."
Well, yes, speaking of drop-outs: We're hearing things about those American Idol folks. Could it be that some celebrity judges are unable to differentiate between gracing Washington with their presence and asking a national news network to get down on their knees and suck it?
