Katie Couric and her special guest Betty White at the CBS cocktail party ahead of the Correspondents’ Dinner.
Katie Couric arrived with two multi-generational funny ladies for tonight’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner: Chelsea Handler and Betty White. Handler, author of “Are you There Vodka, It’s Me Chelsea,” asked Evening News E.P. Rick Kaplan if he was taking drink orders — she found the bar all on her own. (We spotted FishbowlDC’s Betsy Rothstein chatting up Chelsea, so look for that interview later on FBDC).
Dave Price got his picture taken with White, thanks to D.C. colleague, White House Correspondent Chip Reid and his Blackberry.
Other CBS Newsers we spotted: Rita Braver, Anthony Mason, Bob Orr, and execs Sean McManus, David Friedman, and Friedman pere, Paul, talent exec Barbara Fedida nd DC Bureau Chief Chris Isham.
CBS News contributor Ayla Brown along with her dad Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA), and her mom and sister made the rounds at the CBS fete.
White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, Attorney General Eric Holder and Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) rounded out the politico showing.
