CAUGHT ON TAPE: First Video Of First Lady Michelle Obama READING The Heckler + Diddy BREAKS OUT His “Private Jet” Dance

 photo ht_michelle_obama_heckled_lpl_130605_wmain.jpg

It was the "reading" heard around the world as FLOTUS Michelle Obama took on a heckler during a DNC fundraiser this week. Watch the recently released footage inside and see Diddy busting out his hilarious "Jet Dance" on his own private jet….with Cassie.

 

 

A few days ago, FLOTUS Michelle Obama went in on Ellen Sturtz, a lesbian activist, who interrupted her remarks at a DNC fundraiser to demand that President Obama sign an anti-discrimination executive order.  

Now that video of the confontation has emerged, we get to see Mrs. Obama and her bangs swoop off the lectern and into action!  And for the record, President Obama and The White House stand by the First Lady.

“It is my opinion that she handled it brilliantly,” a spokesperson said.  

 

And somewhere in front of a private jet….

As Diddy preps to launch his music-themed cable network "Revolt" next month, he posted a video of himself today dancing in front of his private jet.  This guy is really going to get #DiddyJetDance trending all over the globe!

Hip Hop heads all know that Diddy got his start as a background dancer so it’s no surprise he busted a move on the tarmac and the jet with the airport staff looking mad confused.  Hilar!  With Cassie watching him from her seat on the jet, Diddy pops and locks to Problem’s "Like Whaaat" featuring Bad Lucc.

Corporate Hood.  Loves it!

Notorious cheater Tiger Woods and Ahmad Rashad, who’s going through a nasty split with Sale Johnson, came out to celebrate their golf buddy’s nuptials. Hmm…we wonder what advice THESE TWO gave the groom during the bachelor party.

So how did the guests party AFTER the wedding?  Sources  say Usher was booked to perform at the reception which was held underneath a tent near Michael’s 38,000 sq.ft. home in the Bears Club area of Jupiter, Fla (a town in Palm Beach County).  Commenting about the setup, one source told Gossip Extra,

“Three tents are being put up in his backyard, over the surface of two football fields.  I calculated a total under-roof space of about 600 feet long by 150 feet wide. I’ve never seen anything like it. I’ve been working weddings for a while. It looks like he’s having about 2,000 people over.”

 

Congrats to the bride and groom…

LOVE….HOLLYWOOD STYLE: J.Lo, Casper & Marc Anthony’s BLENDED Birthday CELEBRATION + Tiger Woods Sends Private Jet To RESCUE Rumored Boo Lindsay Vonn

 photo ScreenShot2013-02-09at85831AM.png

Celebs in Hollywood do things differently when it comes to relationships.  See how exes Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony handle birthday parties and what happens when you’re dating Tiger Woods and in need of a "lift"….

 

In Hollywood….it’s not good to hold grudges since most couples remain active business partners after a divorce or breakup.  So what do you do for holidays and birthdays once you find a new partner?  The Hollywood way (as perfected by Russell and Kimora Lee Simmons) is to include everybody for one big happy family.

As evidenced by the Simmons clan who are the postcard for blended families, Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez read from the same rule book as they each brought along their romantic partners (Shannon de Lima and Casper Smart) for a celebration of Marc’s son Cristian and his 12th birthday!

And they indeed looked like one big happy family in the photo (shown above).  Jennifer tweeted, "Happy Birthday Cristian!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #houseparty #FAMILIA’." Then, Marc also tweeted a shoutout to Cristian and even included Casper "’Happy birthday to my prince Cristian! @Shadelima @DA1CHASE @jlo @beaucaspersmart #familia #houseparty’."

It’s great to see everyone getting along.

 

And……

Tiger Woods put a new spin on the old "damsel in distress" tale.  While regular chicks might have to drive themselves, hitch a ride to the airport or borrow a car for a few hours, Tiger is lending out his jet.

When his rumored new girlfriend, Lindsey Vonn tore a few ligaments during the Alpine Ski World Championships, Tiger sent HIS private jet (pics at the link) to Austria to pick her up so she could make it back to the States for a round of tests.

Must be nice…..
