Prom Dates: Blind Items

We don’t do a lot of blind items on Fishbowl, but here are two concerning Saturday’s correspondents’ dinner that are too delicious to pass up:

  • Which D.C. daily is attempting to lure Martha Stewart by promising her a column on the dinner to meet her probation requirement of all meetings being “work-related”?

  • Which weekly newsmagazine is in a tiff with the agent of potential guest Mel “Passion of the Christ” Gibson over the agent’s demand that the mag pay for the actor’s flight, hotel, and limo to and from Dulles?

The Reliable Source also has some additional guests, although they don’t break down who’ll be attending for each organization: Actors Robert Duvall, Burt Reynolds, Randy Quaid, Ron Silver and Richard Schiff, actresses Anne Hathaway and Patricia Heaton, and San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom.
