Politico reported on Thursday that Eva Longoria will co-chair the 2013 inauguration committee along with former Ambassador to Sweden Matthew Barzun, Democratic National Committee National Finance Chair Jane Stetson, and technology entrepreneur and Obama bundler Frank White.
Vice President Biden and I are grateful to these distinguished women and men for agreeing to serve as co-chairs and honorary co-chairs, including presidents from both sides of the aisle who have dedicated their lives to serving the American people, Obama said in a statement.
The actress served as a national campaign co-chair for Obama and bundled $271, 300 for his reelection effort. Additionally, Longorias Futuro Fund generated $30 million for Hispanic outreach for Obamas campaign.
Longoria, perhaps best known for her roles as the mentally unstable Isabella Braña on the soap opera The Young and the Restless, has a history of controversial blunders.
Longoria was the subject of very public divorce in November 2010 after she discovered her husband, San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker, was sexting her friend and his former teammates wife, Erin Barry.
Beso, Longorias restaurant and club, shut its doors for good in July 2011 after filing for bankruptcy that January. The closure sent 128 to the unemployment line. After running Beso $5.7 million in debt, the Los Angeles Times reported in September that Longoria would be reopening the space as a woman-centric steakhouse.
Longoria faced criticism after retweeting one of her followers tweets referring presidential candidate Mitt Romney in October.
I have no idea why any woman/minority can vote for Romney, the tweet read. You have to be stupid to vote for such a racist/misogynistic twat.
Longoria, who was moved to tears over Obamas reelection, will be responsible for organizing inaugural festivities including the inaugural ball.
The Presidential Inauguration is set for Jan. 21, 2013.
A ditzy Hollyweird celebrity. That’s what is wrong with our government.
Add to that, a sexist and racist.
Clueless females don’t want a president. They have a Celebrity-In-Chief. Problem is, dead Americans are left in his wake.
Is she going to flash a boobie like she did to David Letterman? I might watch!
Stupid f-n bitch. Maybe Tony Parker is smarter than I give him credit for.
A few years ago, I was in Vietnam; I had brought with me my CDs of Sheryl Crowe and took the opportunity to throw them away after her endless bashing of Republicans.
I know Eva Longoria is beautiful but I will boycott any and all things she does from here on. Ditto with Streisand, but that’s an easy promise, that pig!
Starve leftists of their revenues and they’ll get the message. They’re much more tolerable when they keep their opinions to themselves.
Dead to me
Actually Eva Longoria isn’t that beautiful. I saw a photo of her with her faced scrubbed of makeup and she was pretty awful looking. Kind of like Moochelle who is butt ugly without the frosting.
