Prom Night in Washington: East Meets West

Posted: 04:01 PM ET

The White House Correspondents Dinner in Washington has become must see TV.  The nation savors the chance to watch the President offer some self-deprecating humor (although not so much this year), and top-notch comedians try to get laughs from a pretty tough crowd.  But in Washington, the dinner is an excuse for some great pre and post event parties.  LKL's Eleanor McManus and Geoff Doner went to one of the notorious pre-parties Saturday.  Here's what, and more importantly, who they saw:

First thing we noticed: the LA based celebrities truly stood out in the DC scene. You had the glitz and glamor of LA - wearing the hottest fashion trends - mingling with the Washington elite who wore Georgetown ultra-preppy attire.

Kim Kardashian was there - and she was really stunning. She looked more beautiful in real-life than on television and the tabloids - and mind you she's not unattractive there.  Then we met the Jonas Brothers.  They're old friends since Larry interviewed them last year at Texas Stadium.  The thought crossed our mind: how often do you see The Jonas Brothers and Wolf Blitzer at the same party?

Basically everywhere we looked there were celebrities.  Adrian Grenier from "Entourage" was great.  In between bites of food he graciously took some time to talk with us. "House's" Omar Epps was there.  We had no idea how good looking he was in person.

But the best part of the party was when we spotted the one person we really wanted to meet: Matthew Morrison, who plays Will Shuster in "Glee."  We're both fans of the show, and aren't exactly proud of the fact we might have run over some people on our way to meet him.  I couldn't tell if he was impressed that we listened to the soundtrack on our way to the party, but he was very charming, cute and genuine.

We also saw Wendy Malick, Tim Daly, Gayle King, and Chevy Chase - who did not look like he was enjoying himself.

At the end of the day, we made some new friends from the west coast, and had a really good time.  Now you see why the parties are so much more fun than the actual event.

Well, I hope while they were all having a fine time they actually took a moment to think of all thepeople that live along the Gulf of Mexico...they certainly don't have much to laugh about at this moment!!!

Kim Kardashian, at the White House Correspondants Dinner? Who would have thought.. Looking at her I realized she must have attended the Fanny Foxe Charm School. Dancing with the Stars, now this. Isn't her 15 minutes up yet?

What exactly has Kim Kardashian ever done in her life for her 15 minutes of fame that never seems to end? The only celebrity more ridiculous than Kim Kardashian is notably her mother who is just as laughable, immature and unintelligent as she is; yet who lives vicariously through the 'success' of her daughter’s ‘body’.

Celebrity moms (The Kardashians, Lohans and the rest of them) are just as stupid and forgettable as their talentless, stupid whore daughters.

What is Kim Kardashian going to do when she turns the ripe old age of 33 and no one wants to look at her ‘body’ anymore? Perhaps it will be time for her to have a daughter of her own and live vicariously off of her own daughter’s ‘body’ just like grandma has done with her.
