Wanda Sykes

Wanda Sykes

The White House on Monday expressed disapproval of Wanda Sykes’ joke at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner that suggested conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh was a September 11th hijacker.
Some commentators thought the comedian went too far in talking about Limbaugh. When asked about it at Monday’s daily briefing, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs – who was on the top table at the dinner with President Obama when the joke was made – said he had not talked to the president specifically about the joke.

But he added: “I think there are a lot of topics that are better left for serious reflection rather than comedy.”

“I think there’s no doubt that 9/11 is part of that,” Gibbs said, pointing out the fact that Sykes was booked by the association not the White House.

At the annual dinner, where Washington political types mix with A-list Hollywood stars, Sykes referred to Limbaugh, a fierce Obama critic, as the “20th hijacker,” accused him of treason and referenced his former addiction to pain killers.

Riffing off Limbaugh’s controversial recent remark that he hoped Obama fails, Sykes said “I hope his kidneys fail, how about that?”

Obama, seated close to Sykes on the stage, was seen to smile uncomfortably

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez

During Sunday night’s Noche de Niños gala benefit for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA), Jennifer Lopez talked about how she and her husband Marc Anthony freaked out when they found a lump on their daughter’s head at 3-weeks old.

“We both got very nervous, very very nervous, and I just remember my heart sinking to my feet,” Lopez told E! Online of Emme, twin brother to Max. “I looked at [Marc] and I said, ‘You know if anything happens, I’m not going to be OK, you know that, right?'”

Lopez and Anthony rushed Emme to Children’s Hospital, where she underwent a battery of tests, including an MRI. “Luckily, in the end,” Lopez said, “she turned out fine.”

The experience, however, made her think about those parents who don’t have the money to pay for sudden medical procedures. “I started to wonder,” Lopez said, “what if I couldn’t afford a doctor or receive the medicines, the procedures?”

So shortly after the scare, the singer-actress teamed with CHLA to form the Maribel Foundation to help provide pediatric medical services to the less fortunate.

During the Noche de Niños gala, Lopez premiered a new song, which she wrote for her twins. A recording of the ballad was played during a video highlighting the Foundation’s work. In it Lopez sings, “Let’s keep this time for us and make it last as long as we can. It’s already going too fast.”
