Read this: New social secretary Jeremy Bernard, Oscars extreme weight-loss, etc.

By The Reliable Source

Meet Jeremy Bernard -- the White House's first male social secretary, and the first gay one. The real significance in his hire: The Obama administration seems ready to make amends with wealthy donors who've felt shut out in recent years. Bernard is a major big-dollar fundraiser with a savvy sense of who needs to be rewarded with invitations to the right White House events.

Natalie Portman and Christian Bale dropped a lot of weight for the roles that might win them Oscars -- does that count as acting?... Kathleen Parker is out at Parker Spitzer... Galliano suspended from Christian Dior following a bar brawl; Jamie Foxx, Stevie Wonder jam at the W; Kathy Griffin at the Lady Gaga show.
