No Name, No Fame


Oprah Winfrey, with a mystery man in Grant Park on Tuesday night. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)

The big mystery Tuesday night: Who were the folks the cameras kept panning to during Obama's speech, the ones flanking Oprah Winfrey and just in front of Jesse Jackson? Must be important to score those front-row spots...

After inquiries across D.C. and Chicago, we finally ID'd the blond lady on the right. She's Missy Lavender, a Chi-town real estate financier-turned-health advocate (her cause: educating women about pelvic exercises to battle incontinence) and yes, big-time donor, who gave nearly $40K to Obama and Dem funds this year. Lavender and her husband (tucked behind Stedman Graham in most photos) bypassed the VIP tent when they saw they could stand up front, "with all the history happening around us."

As for the man in glasses who was seen supporting a weeping Oprah -- not even Oprah knows! She said on her show yesterday: "I was just sobbing on his shoulder, mascara everywhere. Anyway, thank you, Mr. Man, for letting me cry on your shoulder." Do you know? reliablesource@washpost.com.
