Celebrity Edition: Sheen, Riggleman, Hall, Mei Xiang

Good morning and TGIF.

Don’t call Carla Hall to cater your last-minute bash. The former Top Chef finalist and local resident said Wednesday it’s been 178 days since her last catering job, because she’s been so busy with appearances, getting her new cookie business off the ground and starting a daytime food show on ABC this fall.

It’s panda-pregnancy watch time: Is Mei Xiang with cub this year? She’s on 24-hour watch at the National Zoo.

Fridays are always big news days, and we expect we’ll have a lot for you on PostLocal throughout the day. See you there.
