Guess those “Desperate Housewives” checks go a long way.
The Obama administration released a list of its top money bundlers yesterday, and while the list featured the usual political suspects it also contained some familiar Hollywood power brokers.
Top fundraisers include movie producers Jeffrey Katzenberg and Harvey Weinstein, and Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. Actress Eva Longoria was in the second highest tier, bundling $200,000 to $500,000 for Obama’s re-election.
The biggest surprise for celebrity watchers was the inclusion of Longoria. She’s hardly the most outspoken actress on the Hollywood circuit, but the svelte star clearly wants to fatten up Obama’s re-election campaign coffers.
“Desperate Housewives” is in its final season, and Longoria’s attempts at a big screen career so far have met with little success. Maybe she could pull a Kal Penn and get a gig in the Obama administration should all her fundraising efforts pay off.
