News & Rumors: Rashida's lovelife

Update: Big thanks to A for a link to the full article posted @ Cele|bitchy.

Cele|bitchy: Kate Walsh & Rashida Jones are hooking up with Obama staffers

The Enquirer article

Gorgeous actress Rashida Jones has gone from an “Office” romance to a White House love affair - with President Obama’s dashing young speechwriter!

And her new man, Jon Favreau, has made her forget all about former boyfriend and co-star John Krasinski, who quickly moved on to a relationship with “The Devil Wears Prada” star Emily Blunt after his and Rashida’s breakup, say pals.

“For Rashida, her romance with Jon couldn’t have come at a better time,” a longtime friend told the Enquirer.

“She was miserable after breaking up with John. And it really hurt for her to see him dive into a love affair with Emily soon afterward.”

The 33-year-old actress - now on the new NBC comedy “Parks and Recreation” - and Favreau, 27, had their official Beltway “coming out” as a couple at the recent White House Correspondents Dinner in D.C.

The pair was later scene cuddling in the wee hours of the morning at an intimate after-party, and they’ve also been spotted getting cozy on a couch at a trendy Georgetown-area bar.

“Rashida is just crazy about Jon, said the source. “She not only finds him handsome, but smart and witty.”

Rashida, the daughter of legendary music producer Quincy Jones, first met Jon through mutual friends at a political fundraising function, but he was dating someone else at the time, says the friend.

“So when a pal clued her in that he’d recently broken up with his girlfriend, Rashida made her move.”

Now the couple is trying to make a long-distance relationship work - he works in Washington, D.C. and she’s based in Hollywood.

But “Rashida is already making plans to spend time with him on the East Coast this summer,” added the friend.

[From The National Enquirer, print edition, June 1 2009]

Check out the source for cele|bitchy's take on the article and the whole Rashida/Jon romance in general.

A couple of New York papers have some Rashida/Jon stuff in their weekly tabloid round ups.

Rashida Jones Finds Love with Obama Speechwriter

Rashida Jones has found love after her split from The Office co-star John Krasinski -- she's dating one of Barack Obama's speechwriters.

Jones met 27-year-old Jon Favreau -- no relation to the Iron Man director -- at a political function in Washington, D.C., and they stepped out in public as a couple for the first time at this month's White House Correspondents Dinner.

And friends say Favreau has healed her heartache after her tough break-up with Krasinski, who's now dating actress Emily Blunt.

A source tells the National Enquirer, ""For Rashida, her romance with Jon couldn't have come at a better time. She was miserable after breaking up with John. And it really hurt for her to see him dive into a love affair with Emily soon afterward.""

More Rashida/Jon rumors of making out, ass-grabbing and... talking.

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."

Here's two at the after-party with Natalie Portman.

Appearances: White House Correspondents' Association Dinner

Rashida attended the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner in Washington last night. She was seated next to Jon Favreau, Obama's head speechwriter.

So pretty!

She also went to a couple of tie-in parties around town.

Vanity Fair: The White House Correspondents Dinner Party
It’s not too often that a roomful of Hollywood celebrities gets overshadowed by a bunch of buttoned-down civil servants, but it happened last night at the Vanity Fair/Bloomberg White House Correspondents Dinner post-party.

Don’t get us wrong: the stars of film, music, and fashion—Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, Natalie Portman, James Franco, Glenn Close, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Owen Wilson, Claire Danes, Mike Myers,
Rashida Jones, Elizabeth Banks, Kerry Washington, Jason Wu, Jon Hamm, Eva Longoria, Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Amy Poehler, Jon Bon Jovi, Chace Crawford, Ed Westwick, Ludacris, Denis Leary, Donatella Versace, and more—were in fine form.

The Examiner: Parties before the party’s “First Amendment” party at the member-only club L2 in Georgetown.

Further proof that Hollywood and Obama aides are a natural fit was Jon Favreau and
Rashida Jones' night-long interaction. Leaving us question whether they are just good friends or a match made in PoliWood heaven, the Obama speechwriter and the actress arrived together (just as Kevin Bacon was leaving with his daughter) and spent the entire night cozied up a couch.

They held rank as they were joined on and off during the night by actors John Hamm, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Westfeldt...

*Hmm, are they trying to start a rumor? Is Favreau a potential Loverboy?
I googled some pics for y'all and he is pretty cute :)
