It’s been a productive and lucrative year so far for OctoMom Nadya Suleman. Not only did she accept some much-needed help from Angels in Waiting but she’s also scored herself a half million-dollar home in La Habra, CA. The 2583-foot four-bedroom, three-bathroom house boasts a huge yard and is conducive to building add-on rooms. Just perfect for a mother of 14! The official buyer is Nadya’s father, Ed Doud.
Michelle Obama covers The New Yorker’s biannual Style Issue, which hits newsstands this week. To no surprise, much of the article focuses on the First Lady’s arms. This is just days after an Op-Ed piece in the New York Times, in which the author proclaimed: “The only bracing symbol of American strength right now is the image of Michelle Obama’s sculpted biceps. Her husband urges bold action, but it is Michelle who looks as though she could easily wind up and punch out Rush Limbaugh, Bernie Madoff and all the corporate creeps who ripped off America.” Well said!
Comedic political commentator Bill Maher and political host and commentator Ann Coulter will speak at the Chicago Theatre on Wednesday, March 11th. Start time is 7:30 p.m sharp!
And…the word from Twitter to 312Diningdiva is that super group U2 is officially in Chicago right now and the secret location for their highly anticipated appearance tonight is The Metro! Good luck getting in!

Rachel Schwanz of The Entertaining Company wore some Giuseppe shoes that I would’ve killed for and our very own Marcus Riley of NBC5 was looking very cool and sexy for ladies as ALWAYS! (wink!)
New entertainment news show 24/7 Chicago was on the scene working hard getting the scoop, with host Catie Keogh and exec. producer Collen Kelly. And oh, the women! I worship Trevisn Kutti owner of G’bani who wore an outfit that made the whole room stop and look! She was fabulous! *snap, snap*
