• Separated: Dan Pfeiffer, 35, and Sarah Feinberg, 34, after five years of marriage. He’s President Obama’s communications director; she’s a former fellow White House senior aide who earlier this year moved to California for a top policy job with Facebook. The split (first whispered by the New York Post) is said to be amicable with no divorce in the works; the two, who first met on the 2000 Gore campaign, have been spotted socializing in D.C. together recently. They declined to comment.
