Hey ladies! Were you aware that this is the last week of May? Yup, next Monday is Memorial Day and it’s officially June. What are your three day weekend plans? While looking for the cheapest flights to some place with a beach last week, we watched President and Mrs. Obama host their glamorous White House State Dinner dinner — which those creepy party-crashers tried get crash again! — welcoming the president of Mexico, caught Drake’s remix of Alicia Keys’ “Unthinkable” and watched our fave fashionista Andre Leon Talley host “The View” with Whoopi, darling. This week we’ve got… the release of “Sex and the City 2”! Do we even need to mention anything else? We kid, we’re excited Leela James’ album dropping too.
