( -- Actress and model Kim Kardashian turned down CBS’s invitation to attend the White House Correspondents Dinner, but told that she decided to attend as a guest of Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren. Kardashian added that Fox News Channel, which is often criticized by liberals, is “very reputable” and “the only news in the house” where she resides.
On the red carpet at the May 1 dinner, asked Kardashian why she chose to attend the event as a guest of Fox News.

Kardashian said, “I did a few interviews with Greta (Van Susteren). She’s always been so amazing to me, and we’ve had a really good time. I’m just kind of with her hanging out, having a good time. I’ve never been here before. I’ve heard that it’s a fantastic event and I’m honored she chose me as her guest.”
Kardashian is the star of the popular reality show, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”
She was also asked “What’s your impression of Fox News? Do you turn to Fox News for coverage?”
Kim Kardashian said, “Yeah, you know, I’ve done a few interviews with Greta on the Fox News Channel and it’s just a very reputable news channel. So when I have time, every time we’re getting ready in the morning, my step-dad Bruce [Jenner, the Olympic gold medalist], he always has Fox News on. It’s like the only news in the house. So it depends on what room you go into: It’s either E! Entertainment, or news, Fox News.”

When asked whether President Obama had lived up to her expectations, Kardashian said, “It’s a tough job to fill.”
“You know, I’ve met him once before when he was campaigning and this was the first time that every kid in my family has voted, so it was a really exciting year and, you know, it’s a tough job to fill, and I think he’s doing a good job,” she said.  
Actress Kristin Davis, best known for her role in “Sex and the City,” said that while Obama has lived up to her expectations, Congress has not.
“The Congress has not, but he has,” said Davis, an Oxfam ambassador for Oxfam International, who works “directly with communities” to “influence the powerful to ensure that poor people can improve their lives and livelihoods and have a say in decisions that affect them.”
When asked what has her upset with Congress, she cited too much fighting.
“Too much infighting, I mean, obviously,” she said. “I’m not a genius to say that. They need to lead and stop saying no when they feel like and let the country move forward. I feel like the county wants to move forward. They are just scared because it’s a recession.”
