Quoted: Greta Van Susteren is skipping the White House Correspondents’ dinner

Kim Kardashian with her host Greta Van Susteren at the 2010 White House Correspondents’ Association dinner.

 

“I am sure everyone will have fun. . . but it can also be a bit exhausting as it is a 2 ½ day affair.”

 

Greta Van Susteren on why she’s skipping the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner this month, after arguably triumphing in the celebrity-guest derby for several years running. (Her traffic-stopping dates have included Ozzy Osbourne, Kim Kardashian, Lindsay Lohan and Sarah Palin.) Sounds like the Fox News host is just taking a temporary break (“I made another commitment out of town that weekend”); on her GretaWire blog she fondly recalls last year’s Lohan coup: “You would not believe all the influential people in town — media and politicians — who wanted to meet her and have a picture with her. “

This preview of expected 2013 WHCA celebrity guests is clearly lacking in comparison. Who would have been the perfect Van Susteren 2013 Zeitgeist guest? Please share your fantasy picks with us. And will anyone pick up the torch?
