Best Week Ever: HOT NEW COUPLE ALERT! Rashida Jones Spotted With Hot Obama Speechwriter
By Michelle Collins

[This = their photoshop manip]

"To quote’s favorite movie Coming to America: “Why does she always get the good ones?”

A tipster has just informed us of a hot new celebrity power couple, seen getting close this weekend in Washington D.C.: Parks and Recreations actress Rashida Jones was spotted drinking Friday night with D.C.’s hottest bachelor of the moment, Jon Favreau. No, not the beefy actor seen in your Favreau-te movie of all-time, Rudy, but rather the studly 27-year-old Director of Speechwriting for President Barack Obama. Yes, that one. For girls who like guys that look good on paper, his Wiki page is basically pornography. Also? He’s hot.

Here’s how it went down: Rashida and Jon were hanging out in an exclusive bar in the Georgetown area (yes, D.C. does have “exclusive places”, unless you’re a WASP, as then the world is your nest.) Our tipster reports that the two were attached at the hip all evening, until they starting making out with each other at the bar. Eventually, they left with one another. We can only assume they did the inevitable… shake hands (hands = genitals.)

The next night, Rashida was spotted looking radiant* (*bc she probs had ess) at the White House Correspondents dinner, while her latest boy toy was likely busy backstage writing one liners for the POTUS. So does this mean Favreau, easily the hottest commodity the East Coast has to offer, has broken up with rumored girlfriend and Maxim model Ali Campoverdi? Well, if that is the case, then allow us to digitally shake his hand (again, genital) and congratulate him on the Upgrade. The jury is still out on whether or not he’s a better catch than J. Krasinski, though. (He probably is.)

(Please also note, the above picture is Photoshopped, but aw, they make a cute couple.)"


The Examiner: Seen and heard at the Corro. Dinner
"Favreau's flame: Speaking of Jon Favreau, we may be seeing our next "PoliWood" power couple in Favreau and Rashida Jones, as we spotted them being more than just friends.

The speechwriter and the actress arrived together Saturday night, marking the second time this weekend the twosome showed up to an event together. That’s not enough to claim them as a couple, but after they walked the red carpet (separately) Favreau placed his hand on her backside and led her through the crowd.

Seeing that she didn’t slap him, we think they got something going on. Stay tuned."


The Washington Post: Hollywood Moves In on Washington Press Prom Parties
"...A final after-after party, at the Dupont rowhouse of political consultant Mike Feldman, filled with cute, young Hollywood people (Elizabeth Banks, Chace Crawford) and new administration folks, average age roughly 17, from the looks of them. And one last moment of that political-celebrity convergence everyone gets excited about: speechwriter Jon Favreau and actress Rashida Jones, on the back porch at 3 a.m., standing close and talking. It looked like something, maybe, not that we could ask. But, in different ways, they're about equally famous now. It could work."
