Last Night's Telethon Raised $14 Million . . . And Counting 

Last night's "Hand in Hand" telethon for hurricane relief raised more than $14 million and counting, since you can STILL donate.  (Text GIVE to 80077.) 

The show kicked off with Stevie Wonder singing "Lean on Me" with a choir, followed by opening remarks from Leonardo DiCaprio and Jamie Foxx.

Just about every celebrity under the sun was there, either performing or manning the phones.  They include Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts, Cher, Oprah, Dave Matthews, Miranda Lambert, George Strait, Usher, Blake Shelton, and many others. 


Who Is the "Most Despised" Person in the White House?

A new report says that the most DESPISED person in the White House is OMAROSA, who's the "Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison for the Trump Administration," whatever that entails.

This probably doesn't come as a surprise, since Omarosa is FAMOUS for being a villain on the first season of "The Apprentice".  And really, she's the HEART AND SOUL of reality TV's whole "I didn't come here to make friends" approach.

Staffers complain about her behavior and work ethic, but PRESIDENT TRUMP is still tight with her.
