Laura Bush Steals Show at Correspondents Dinner

U.S. First Lady Laura Bush stole the show at the annual White House
Correspondents Dinner on April 30 when she poked fun at her husband
and his family, leaving celebrity guests like Jane Fonda and Richard Gere in

President George W. Bush’s wife confessed she was a real desperate housewife
because her man was always too tired for romance.

She quipped, “Here’s our typical evening: nine o’clock and Mr. Excitement here
is sound asleep and I’m watching Desperate Housewives.

“I mean it, those women on that show think they’re desperate; they ought to
be with George.”

That wasn’t Bush’s only reference to popular culture–she likened her
mother-in-law Barbara Bush to The Godfather‘s Don Corleone.

Meanwhile, joining Gere and Fonda at the Washington Hilton Hotel bash were
celebrity model Elle Macpherson, actors Dennis Hopper and Billy Baldwin, actresses Kelly Preston and Goldie Hawn and a frail Mary Tyler Moore.

High security meant all those attending the event, including the stars had to
pass through extensive checkpoints, where they were asked to remove their shoes
and jackets.
