Laura Bush Is The Star Of The Show At Correspondents Dinner

US First Lady LAURA BUSH stole the show at the annual White House Correspondents Dinner on Saturday (30APR05) when she poked fun at her husband and his family, leaving celebrity guests like JANE FONDA and RICHARD GERE in hysterics.

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.
