UPDATE: What a change from President and First Lady Obama’s first White House state dinner. (Obama Thanks Hollywood With Coveted Invites) This time around, only a few actors and actresses and others from Hollywood made the cut: Whoopi Goldberg, Eva Longoria-Parker, George Lopez, Univision’s Jorge Ramos from Miami, and former DreamWorks political adviser Andy Spahn, now an independent consultant but still advising SKG. (Geffen and Spielberg attended the 1st state dinner…) CAA’s Christy Haubegger, the founder of Latina magazine and a film producer before she became an agent, is invited only to the entertainment portion in honor of the Mexico President with Beyoncé and Rodrigo y Gabriela performing.
