David Cross Did Cocaine at the Same Table as Donna Shalala
Generally, David Cross is a pretty funny fellow, but sometimes he seems so damn smug. I guess if I starred in Arrested Development and Mr. Show, I would be pretty self-satisfied, even if I had done some Hollywood bullshit like Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel and the Amanda Bynes vehicle She's the Man. But it's those big studio paychecks that keep you in cocaine money and get you invited to fancy events.
Comedian David Cross brought his stand-up routine to Washington's Warner Theatre Wednesday night and made a shocking confession (assuming he wasn't joking...) at the end of his routine: That he snorted cocaine while seated just yards away from President Barack Obama at this year's White House Correspondents' Association dinner.
"So I got to go because my girlfriend is a fancy Hollywood actress and she got an invitation to go this last time, so we went," the "Arrested Development" star told the crowd. He went on to say that he has an ongoing competition with a friend in which the two try to constantly out-do each other in "dares and outrageousness."
That friend, apparently, is none other than former Vice editor and current Street Carnage editor Gavin McInnes, and a screen shot of the text showed up in our Tumblr feed yesterday. It turns out Cross indulged in the nose candy while sitting at the same table as University of Miami President Donna Shalala.
