Correspondents' Dinner Toned Down After War
JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT and JASON PRIESTLEY were among the stars who attended a the WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENTS' ASSOCIATION dinner.
In contrast to last years's (02) event when OZZY OSBOURNE and his wife SHARON were the guests of honour at a wild party, Saturday night's (26APR03) bash was a quiet affair with three war-injured enlisted soldiers and JENNA ELFMAN on special invite from GRETA VAN SUSTEREN.
Instead of quips from a comedian, the crowd was instead treated to a performance from RAY CHARLES.
MARY TYLER MOORE, JULIE ANDREWS and JOE PANTOLIANO were among the other stars who joined president GEORGE W BUSH at the annual event, which Love Hewitt - a first-time attender - describes as "conservative".
Actress BO DEREK, who arrived with her beau JOHN CORBETT, says, "I thought it was appropriate. I miss the jokes and fun, but it was still a happy night - not sombre at all."29/04/2003 09:38
