Famous 5

  Josie Martin is the queen of balance. We’re not sure about her tightrope-walking abilities, but we do know she has got health and wellness down pat (unlike some of us, who consider an entire pint of Ben & Jerry’s a light snack). She’s the Executive Vice President of Public Affairs for PhRMA, …

I recently heard this story about these three little pigs that built homes made out of straw, sticks and bricks, respectively. A big bad wolf came along and blew all their houses down, with the exception of the one made of brick. I thought to myself, “Wow, those dumb pigs should’ve called Eric …

In case we haven’t shouted it from the rooftops enough, it’s National Candy Month. The National Confectioners Association has made summer even sweeter by dubbing June “National Candy Month“. It’s not that we needed an excuse to celebrate our beloved snacks, but it’s nice to be informed about the finer things …

Let’s be honest – DC could use some funny people. Geoff Embler is just that. He’s a public affairs professional by day and aspiring comedian by night. You can catch him telling jokes at comedy clubs around town, in the shower, or in front of his mirror. We chatted with …

Make America travel again. A slogan so simple, yet so appealing. No one gets it better than U.S. Travel Association – they promote this ideal everyday and with summer right around the corner, we need no further convincing. Jonathan Grella is the Executive Vice President of Public Affairs for U.S. Travel …

Working out can be dangerous which is why I try to stay away from it. Throw in some weights and we’re now flirting with death. Call me old fashioned, but I’d like to live a long life. Stuart Roy and Hazen Marshall? Not so much. The two love Crossfit so much …

Attention all ball busters: Grab your party pants… err, leave them at home because this is one party where they’re optional. This weekend is the 12th annual Rocky Mountain Oyster Festival in DC aka DC Testy Fest and it’s sure to be a real ball. The Montana State Society is hosting …

Few people can take a selfie, Tweet, Instagram and Snapchat… all at the same time. Katy Ricalde does it like it’s her job – because it is. Katy is the New Media Specialist for “Special Report with Bret Baier” which means not only does Katy advise Bret on which filter looks best …

She may look all cute and petite, but don’t let that fool you. The girl’s got guns – literally. Emily Miller is an unapologetic journalist and author of Emily Gets Her Gun, which chronicles her attempt (and eventual success) at obtaining a legally registered gun in DC, only after being a victim …

Sabrina Siddiqui, formerly of the Huffington Post, is currently a political reporter for The Guardian – but you already know that because you follow her on Twitter. She’s a fierce journalist, power woman, political devotee (shocking), foodie, and lover of all things fluffy. Naturally, we had just had to know MORE about Sabrina so …

Missourian turned Washingtonian – Michelle Hawks Reinshuttle – definitely gets our “Mom of the Year” award. Not only because she just wrote and published her first book, The Stuck Truck, but because she did it during a time when the rest of us gave up: Snowpocalypse 2016 (see also: Snowbama 2016, …

Marissa Mitrovich is a stylist to the stars. Well, she once had an opinion on Cara Delevinge’s choice of footwear during her visit to the White House which, I think, makes her qualified if she ever decides to be. Marissa is the founder of Politiquette – DC’s one stop shop for fashion all year …

Ryan Grim is the Washington bureau chief for the Huffington Post and a regular contributor on MSNBC. Whether you agree with him or not (shame on you) his opinions and commentary are fancied by the savviest in Washington. When he’s not keeping up with politics, he’s just trying to keep up …

Daniel Lippman is just like everyone else. He co-authors one of the most influential political digests in DC, climbed the Himalayas when he was five, and wakes up at the crack of dawn without an alarm clock… or coffee. Ok maybe not like everyone else, but definitely impressive. He’s been interviewed by The …

Peter Mirijanian is ageless. He has often been mistaken for George Clooney’s younger and more attractive brother. We don’t exactly know if this is the case, but we can safely assume. When he’s not hosting DC’s classiest rendezvous or serenading his peers with the sweet sounds of Frank Sinatra, he’s running a full-time Public …
