Eggs, kids and little drama

JABIN BOTSFORD (THE WASHINGTON POST)
THE DISTRICT Some 21,000 people were invited to attend the annual White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday, one of the year’s largest events held at the mansion and one that attracted additional attention this year after the newest occupants of the most famous house on Pennsylvania Avenue got a slow start planning the party. But despite concerns, it all seemed to go off without a hitch. It was lower key and less flashy than in years past. First lady Melania Trump wanted to focus on the more traditional aspects of the longtime Easter Egg Roll, her spokeswoman said. Children and families roamed the lawn and stopped at picnic tables to make drawings that would be sent to troops overseas. They tossed beanbags and practiced soccer at makeshift goals set up by D.C. United. And some tried their hand at what has arguably become one of the more challenging jobs in the Trump administration: They stood in for Sean Spicer at a miniature

She said she cried tears of joy when her husband, Rodrigo, a recruiter for the Air Force, broke the news that they had finally snagged a set for their family. “We’ve always wanted to go because we have such pride in our country,” Laura Trevino said. The president, accompanied by the first lady, son Barron and the Easter Bunny, stepped out onto the Truman Balcony to address the crowd of colorfully dressed families. “This is the 139th Easter Egg Roll. Think of it. 139. It began a long time ago, 1878,” President Trump said. “And we will be stronger and bigger and better as a nation than ever before. We’re right on track. You see what’s happening.” The president later walked the rope line to greet families. At one point, he signed a “Make America Great” hat, then threw it into the crowd, away from the person who handed it to him. MORIAH BALINGIT (THE WASHINGTON POST)

local Agency plans to offer service at 30 stations by the end of 2017 TRANSPORTATION Good news for Metro riders searching for a way to pass the time as they await their trains — a sometimes lengthy ordeal. Metro plans to turn on free customer Wi-Fi at 30 stations by the end of the year, the transit agency said Monday, allowing passengers on phones, tablets and laptops to tap into the agency’s wireless network. By year’s end,
if all goes to plan, nearly every Red Line station from Union Station to Medical Center will have access to free Wi-Fi (the exception being Woodley Park), and a broad section of the system’s core should also be covered. Free Wi-Fi is already offered at six underground stations as part of a pilot program, which Metro says is used by hundreds daily at Union Station, Metro Center, Gallery Place, L’Enfant Plaza, Judiciary Square and Archives. Monday’s announcement adds 24 more underground stations to the list, and follows General

nation+world Police suspect victim was chosen at random; Ohio man posted video CLEVELAND In a rambling video, Steve Stephens said, “I snapped, I just snapped.” But as the manhunt dragged on Monday for the man accused of posting Facebook footage of himself killing a Cleveland retiree, police were unable to explain what set him off. “Only Steve knows that,”
Court halts 2 executions set for Monday night
Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams said. Authorities posted a $50,000 reward for Stephens’ capture in the shooting of 74-year-old Robert Godwin Sr. In the video, Stephens blamed a former girlfriend he had lived with, saying he “couldn’t take it anymore.” But in a statement Monday, the woman, Joy Lane, shed little light on what might have gone wrong and said Stephens was good to her and her children. The victim, Godwin, appeared to have been selected at random,
gunned down while picking up aluminum cans Sunday afternoon after spending Easter with some of his children. The manhunt that started in Cleveland’s east side expanded rapidly into a nationwide search for Stephens, a 37-year-old job counselor who worked with teens and young adults, police said. The manhunt was still ongoing at Express’ deadline. Law enforcement officials said his cellphone signal was detected on Sunday afternoon in Erie, Pa., about 100 miles east

A quest to beat opioids With 2 million in U.S. hooked on painkillers, doctors search for less addictive drugs

days and cut patients’ need for opioids by 30 to 50 percent. There’s a good chance of preventing brain responses that lead to chronic pain if patients can get through that “initially very rough period,” said Dr. Harold Minkowitz, a Houston anesthesiologist who consults for Heron. Mary Hernandez of Houston was part of a tummy-tuck study testing the drug versus a placebo and doesn’t know whether she got the drug or a dummy medicine. But she hurt less than she expected to and never filled a prescription for pain pills. “The goal would be to have half or more of patients not requiring an opiate after they go home,” said Heron’s chief executive, Barry Quart. “You have far fewer opiates going out into society, far fewer opiates sitting in medicine cabinets that make their way to a high school.” Studies so far are mid-stage — too small to prove safety and

HEALTH Vicodin, OxyContin and similar drugs are widely used for bad backs, severe arthritis, damaged nerves and other woes. They work powerfully in brain areas that control pleasure and pain, but the body adapts to them quickly, so people need larger and larger doses to get relief. This growing dependence on opioids has mushroomed into a national health crisis, ripping apart communities and straining police and health departments. Every day, an overdose of prescription opioids or heroin kills 91 people, and legions more are brought back from the brink of death. With about 2 million Americans hooked on these pills, evidence is growing that they’re not as good a choice for treating chronic pain as once thought. Drug companies are working on alternatives, but have had little success. Twenty or so years ago, they invested heavily and “failed miserably,” said Dr. Nora Volkow, director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Pain is a pain to research. Some people bear more than others, and success can’t be measured as objectively as it can be with medicines that shrink a tumor or clear an infection. Some new pain drugs that worked well were doomed by side effects — Vioxx, for instance, helped arthritis but hurt hearts.
Using marijuana for pain A cannabis extract is sold as a mouth spray in Britain for nerve pain and other problems from multiple sclerosis. But cannabinoid research in the U.S. has been hampered by marijuana’s legal status. A special license is needed and most researchers don’t even try to obtain one, said Susan Ingram, a neurosurgery scientist at Oregon Health & Science University. She is studying cannabinoid receptors in the brain, looking at how pain affects one type but not another. Such work might someday lead to drugs that relieve pain but don’t produce a high or addiction. (AP)

each other and thus might help various types of pain. Others are testing cell therapies for nerve pain. Stem cells can modulate immune responses and inflammation, and may “overcome a raft of problems,” said Dr. Jianguo Cheng, a Cleveland Clinic pain specialist. Some companies, including Samumed, Centrexion Therapeutics and Flexion Therapeutics, are testing long-acting medicines to inject in knees to relieve arthritis pain. Samumed’s aims to regenerate cartilage. Then there’s the drug buprenorphine, which partially binds to opioid receptors in the brain and has become “an extraordinarily successful medication” for treating addiction, Volkow said. “It has shown pharmaceutical companies that if you come up with a good intervention,” she said, “there is an opportunity to recover their costs.” MARILYNN MARCHIONE (AP)
Some of the most heated exchanges at district town halls around the country involve health care. So how do lawmakers pay for their health insurance? The Affordable Care Act has required members of Congress and many staffers to join the health care exchanges in the District and leave the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program. Through that federal plan, lawmakers and their staff had about 70 percent of their insurance premiums covered by the federal government. But they generally make too much money to qualify for subsidies in the exchanges, which were intended for people who previously did not get insurance from employers. So the Obama administration made an exception that allowed them to use the D.C. small-business exchange to receive health care stipends from their employer (the federal government). Yes, the law allows individual congressional offices to be counted as small businesses of 50 or fewer employees. On the exchanges, lawmakers get an employer (i.e., taxpayer) contribution of 72 percent for their premiums. So this has allowed them to receive a similar subsidy as they did under the federal health plan. Some say they donate to charity an amount equivalent to the taxpayerfunded subsidy. And not all staffers use the small-business exchange. MICHELLE YE HEE LEE

SOUTH KOREA The White House displayed a tough and unyielding approach to North Korea and its nuclear ambitions Monday, with President Trump warning that Kim Jong Un has “gotta behave” and Vice President Mike Pence sternly advising Kim not to test America’s resolve and military power. Keeping up the verbal volleying, North Korea’s deputy U.N. ambassador accused the U.S. of turning the Korean peninsula into “the world’s biggest hot spot” and creating “a dangerous situation in which a thermonuclear war may break out at any moment.” Pence’s visit to the tense Demilitarized Zone dividing North and South Korea came at the start of a 10-day trip to Asia and underscored U.S. commitment. It allowed Pence to gaze at North Korean soldiers from afar and stare across a border marked by razor wire. Pence told reporters that Trump was hopeful China would use its “extraordinary levers” to pressure the North to abandon its weapons program. But Pence expressed impatience with the unwillingness of the North to move toward ridding itself of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles. “The era of strategic patience is over,” he declared. “President
Vice President Pence arrives at the border village of Panmunjom in the Demilitarized Zone separating the two Koreas on Monday.
Trump has made it clear that the patience of the United States and our allies in this region has run out, and we want to see change.” Trump himself appeared to reinforce the message at the White House, replying, “Gotta behave” when a CNN reporter asked what message he had for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. In New York, the North’s deputy U.N. ambassador, Kim In Ryong, said the U.S.-South Korean military exercises being staged now are the largest-ever “aggressive war drill.” He said his country “is ready to react to any mode of war desired by the U.S.” In Beijing, Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang called for international talks with North Korea to ease tensions. Russia warned that the Trump administration was on what
Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called a “very risky path.” “I hope there will be no unilateral actions like those we saw recently in Syria,” Lavrov told reporters in Moscow on Monday. Late Monday, Pence reiterated in a joint statement alongside South Korean Acting President Hwang Kyo-ahn that “all options are on the table” and said any use of nuclear weapons by Pyongyang would be met with “an overwhelming and effective response.” “Just in the past two weeks, the world witnessed the strength and resolve of our new president in actions taken in Syria and Afghanistan,” Pence said. “North Korea would do well not to test his resolve or the strength of the armed forces of the United States in this region.” (AP/THE WASHINGTON POST)
President Trump’s setbacks on campaign promises look like they’re catching up with him — bigly. A new poll from Gallup released Monday finds that a majority of Americans no longer view Trump as keeping his promises, with poll numbers on that question falling from 62 percent in February to 45 percent in early April, a stunning tumble of 17 percentage points. The drop was seen across every demographic group: women, men, millennials and baby boomers. While numbers sank the furthest among respondents who identified as a Democrat or liberal, independents who said they thought Trump kept his promises fell from 59 percent to 43 percent; even among Republicans, the numbers fell, from 92 percent to 81 percent.

Erdogan defiant after win International monitors, opposition question fairness of referendum TURKEY Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday rejected international monitors’ criticisms of Turkey’s referendum, insisting the vote was the “most democratic election” seen in any Western country. Unofficial results gave Erdogan’s “yes” vote a narrow win Sunday, with 51.4 percent approving constitutional changes
to convert Turkey’s political system from a parliamentary to a presidential one. Critics argue the reforms will hand extensive power to a man with an increasingly autocratic bent, leaving few checks and balances in place. Opposition parties called foul, alleging irregularities and calling for the vote to be annulled, as hundreds of “no” supporters demonstrated in the streets, chanting “thief, murderer, Erdogan” and banging pots and pans. International monitors from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe said in a
report Monday that the referendum “fell short” of international standards. In a speech before a massive crowd at his presidential palace in Ankara, Erdogan admonished the OSCE monitors to “know your place,” describing their report as “politically motivated.” Also on Monday, the country’s Council of Ministers decided to extend the state of emergency for a further three months; it had been due to expire April 19. The decision was to be sent to parliament for approval. ELENA BECATOROS (AP)

WIZARDS VS. HAWKS | GAME 2: 7 P.M. WEDNESDAY, CSN
Gortat drops the hammer on the Hawks NBA PLAYOFFS Marcin Gortat recently has looked more like the center who once anchored a very good Wizards starting lineup. All it took was for his backup to get hurt. In the 114-107 win over the Hawks on Sunday in Game 1 of their playoff series, Gortat logged his most minutes in more than a month (31:14) while outplaying Dwight Howard, scoring 14 points (7-of-11 shooting) with 10 rebounds and two blocks. Howard, who still flashes the physique of a Greek god despite his game looking awfully mortal, had seven points and 14 rebounds (with only four in the second half). The Hawks were outscored by 21 with Howard on the floor. The Wizards were plus-21 with Gortat.
His mini-resurgence — in Game 82 of the regular season, he made 8-of-9 shots against Miami — comes as Ian Mahinmi recovers from a left calf strain. Mahinmi’s injuries have hurt his first season with the Wizards, but when healthy he gave the second unit a defensive force in the middle and even ate into Gortat’s minutes by occasionally working with the starters. The good news for the Wizards is that Mahinmi will be checked out again this week. But that will be no earlier than Thursday, a day after Game 2 at Verizon Center. With that timeline in mind, Gortat’s productivity should make the Wizards breathe easier. Gortat must have been fired up about beating Howard. In previous years he has admitted “it’s one of the matchups I’m always waiting for.” As Sunday’s game progressed and the Wizards had one of their made-for-“SportsCenter” runs,

Gortat (aka “the Polish hammer”) dunked on Paul Millsap, and then shoved him. And if that weren’t enough to catch the referees’ attention,
Gortat decided to mean-mug Millsap while making a hammer gesture. That one earned Gortat a technical foul and might have been one of the plays on Millsap’s mind after the final buzzer. “The difference in the game was we were playing basketball and they were playing MMA,” Millsap told reporters. “They were physical. When the game is like that we have to match their physicality.” Gortat welcomes the challenge. “He knows his role, and without him, man, we wouldn’t get half the shots or possessions we get,” shooting guard Bradley Beal said.

Kenya bounces back with winners Edna Kiplagat, left, and Geoffrey Kirui.
U.S. runners thrive as Kenyans sweep BOSTON MARATHON The Kenyans are back in Boston after a relative lull that saw them shut out in the world’s most prestigious marathon twice in the past three years. More surprisingly, so are the Americans. Geoffrey Kirui won the 121st Boston Marathon on Monday, pulling away from three-time U.S. Olympian Galen Rupp with two miles to go to give Kenya its first men’s victory in five years. Edna Kiplagat won the women’s race to complete the Kenyan sweep. They were followed closely by Americans who grabbed two of the top four women’s spots and six of the top 10 for men — the first time that’s happened since the race went professional in 1986. “It’s a real exciting time,” said Rupp, the Olympic bronze
medalist who was making his Boston debut. “And it’s awesome to see American distance running on the upswing and being competitive in these races.” Kirui finished in 2 hours, 9 minutes, 37 seconds. Rupp was 21 seconds back, and Japan’s Suguru Osako 30 seconds behind him. Rounding out the top 10 were runners from California, Arizona, Colorado, Oregon and Utah. Kiplagat finished in 2:21:52 to win her Boston debut, adding the victory to two world championships. She pulled ahead of Rose Chelimo of Bahrain in the Newton hills to win by 59 seconds. American Jordan Hasay, making her first run at 26.2 miles, was third, and Desi Linden was fourth — the first time since 1991 that two U.S. women have finished in the top four. JIMMY GOLEN (AP)
“It was awesome out there. I just hope my good time today wasn’t just because of the tailwind.” KATHRINE SWITZER, 70, who ran the Boston Marathon on Monday in 4:44:31. In 1967, she became the first woman to complete the race with an official bib. Her time then was 4:20.

Ross’ first start likely Wednesday NATIONALS The Nationals have announced that Max Scherzer will open their three-game series tonight at Atlanta, with Stephen Strasburg pitching Thursday. Wednesday is TBA. The acronym suggests mystery, but context renders right-hander Joe Ross the likely answer. Washington began the season with just four starting pitchers because its schedule afforded the team that luxury. So Ross, 23, was optioned to Class AAA Syracuse — not because he lost his spot in the rotation, but because his spot wasn’t necessary for a while. “I hope sometime in the future

Dusty Baker says that Joe Ross’ role as the No. 5 starter is a tricky one.
that Joe, for his career and our sake, will move up … and not be a number five starter anymore,” manager Dusty Baker said recently. “The number five starter is a tough spot. That’s the guy you skip. “Invariably, if you have off days or whatever, then he’s going
to be matched up with number ones and number twos. He’s not always matching up with fours and fives, so that’s a tough spot. You’ve got to pitch your way out of the spot.” When Washington needed a fifth starter April 8, the club chose Jeremy Guthrie because
Ross wasn’t eligible to rejoin the club within 10 days of his demotion unless he was replacing an injured player. The spot start was a catastrophe. Guthrie allowed 10 runs in two-thirds of an inning and recently elected free agency after he was designated for assignment. The earliest the Nationals need a fifth starter again is Saturday at the New York Mets, but having Ross pitch Wednesday makes sense because his last outing for Syracuse was Thursday. Pitching Wednesday would give him five days’ rest. Waiting until Saturday would make his time between starts unusually long. Having him start Wednesday would also give Strasburg an extra day of rest, which the Nationals always welcome.

Luck has no timetable to start throwing again Colts quarterback Andrew Luck said Monday he isn’t sure when he’ll start throwing again and won’t set a timetable for his return from shoulder surgery. He isn’t expected to do much — if any — work during the team’s offseason workouts. He acknowledged that his injury problems began during a Week 3 game at Tennessee in 2015. He missed nine games that season with injuries but said he opted for rehab rather than surgery before the 2016 season, during which he aggravated the injury several times. (AP)

Endurance running goes way beyond just strapping on a pair of shoes and drinking water.
Get set for a long run Most endurance runners are well acquainted with the idea of a gradual ramp-up of speed and distance over several months. In other words, they know that going from the couch to a 10-miler in a week is a recipe for disaster. But how about all the other stuff that isn’t necessarily in a training guide? Is that big breakfast going to cause trouble at Mile 8? What if you hit the wall when you’re 10 miles in, and your legs give out? And let’s not even talk about chafing. Actually, let’s. GABRIELLA BOSTON (THE WASHINGTON POST) Chafing and blisters
Friction and sweat are a bad combination. How to avoid it? Choose smooth fabrics that wick away moisture, and use anti-chafing products such as Vaseline or Body Glide. Carl Ford, a coach for DC Road Runners, says smear anything that “sticks out.” Nipples? Yes. Inner thighs? Yes. But also more unexpected areas, such as the stomach. Lee Firestone, a D.C. podiatrist and running coach, recommends wearing tight acrylic socks and a triedand-true running shoe, and keeping your toenails short. If it’s hot, lace your shoes higher to prevent your foot from moving around in your shoe.
“Part of your training has to be figuring out when and what to eat and drink depending on the distance you’re running,” Ford says. Some athletes will eat two to four hours before, while others will just have water. But surprises can include cramping and diarrhea. The likely reasons that so many runners have gastric distress, called “runner’s diarrhea,” include jostling of the organs, nerves and anxiety, and a lack of blood flow to the intestines. Although runner’s diarrhea isn’t fully understood and can’t always be avoided, coaches recommend hydrating often, avoiding caffeine and alcohol, and reducing anxiety.
Whether you’re training or racing, a hot day is likely to mean a slower pace. Or, as Ford experienced in a marathon a few years ago, you might hit a wall, getting lead legs with many miles to go. Debi Bernardes, a D.C. triathlon coach and owner of UCanDoIt Coaching, knows the scenario well and says she starts “stupid slow” on hot and humid days. “No matter what, unless you are a regular racer, no one is going to run a [personal record] on a hot day,” she says. If the temperature is above 80, with humidity of 80 percent or more, she recommends slowing down by 20 seconds per mile.
For those who train early in the day, Bernardes recommends 12 ounces of water with a pinch of sea salt when you wake up, to replenish the salts you lose breathing throughout the night. “Too many athletes just drink a ton of water, not realizing that they are actually flushing their store of electrolytes,” Bernardes said. If it’s hot, if you’re running longer than 6 miles and you sweat a lot, a sports drink might work. To find out how much you need to hydrate, Firestone recommends checking the color of your urine after training runs and even weighing yourself to see how much weight in fluids you need to replenish.
A few things worth looking into on race day: Make sure your stomach tolerates the race-featured drink — whether Gatorade, Powerade or some other sports drink — before race day. You can find out what brand is being used on the race website. Buy some in advance and try it on a run. If it’s a longer race, you may need food mid-run. Bring along sports gels or small bites of “real” food. But all coaches agree on the importance of arriving up to an hour early, so you can prepare adequately and calmly. Bernardes has a name for the three keys to being decently prepared. “It’s the three P’s: parking, pooping and pacing.”

fit+wellness The fallout of the falling out
BEN CLAASSEN III (FOR EXPRESS)
Q. I recently had an ugly
DR. ANDREA BONIOR | BAGGAGE CHECK
Am I going to lose my Friday nights? Q. My girlfriend and I are moving in together but I’m worried about her pressuring me to stay home more. We each do our own things on Friday nights (I usually hang out with friends; she stays home and watches TV or reads a book) and then we spend the weekend together. She says she knows we are different and will give me space, but am I really going to be able to leave her home alone? DIFFERENT STROKES You might feel pressure, true. No matter how compatible a couple is, there are typically at least a few contradictory habits. But bridging those gaps is part of navigating a healthy living-together situation. Honesty and respect are key. Tell her that you like the rhythm of things as they are, and you want her to be content too. Ask
her what her ideal situation is, and how you two can approximate making you both happy. You may find that she actually values her alone time as much as you do. Or, it might be that it feels better to gradually merge your social circles a bit more. If you communicate and value each other’s needs, you’ll work it out.
falling out with a very close friend and ended several years of drama (she is selfish, takes advantage of people and lies). I am at peace with the friendship ending, but nobody else seems to be. I find that mutual friends and family won’t stop asking where she is and what she’s up to. If I mention the rift, they urge us to work things out. What should I say in these situations? MOVING ON The beauty of these situations is that you need not say anything beyond your initial explanation. Depending on how well they knew her, their comments may have more to do with their own feelings about not seeing her anymore than about whatever happened within your relationship. Or it could just be the typical conversational filler that happens when people are uncomfortable hearing about an unfortunate situation. Practice your own filler, whether nodding or smiling or bringing up the infield fly rule. While you are at peace with the friendship ending, trust that others may take a while to get there — something you can model for them in the process.

TELEVISION It’s almost fate that Oprah Winfrey makes one of her rare acting forays in HBO’s “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks,” an adaptation of Rebecca Skloot’s nonfiction book (premiering Saturday at 8 p.m.). Winfrey plays Deborah Lacks, a woman seeking answers about her late mother. “She wanted nothing more than the story to go out into the world,” Skloot says of the real Deborah, who died in 2009, just before the book was published. “And she said for years she wanted Oprah to play her in the movie.” The film, directed and largely written by George C. Wolfe, tracks Deborah’s investigation into the life of Henrietta Lacks (played by Renee Elise Goldsberry in flashbacks), an AfricanAmerican woman who died in obscurity of cervical cancer in 1951, but who nevertheless became world-renowned — on a cellular level. Scientists found that the cells cultured from her tumor samples didn’t readily die off, which meant they could reproduce again and again. As a result, those cell lines, which have come to be known to research labs and biotechnology companies worldwide by Henrietta’s abbreviated

name, HeLa, have been instrumental in dozens of medical breakthroughs and are still in use to this day. “I felt a genuine desire to share this story, because this is a name that people should know,” Winfrey, 63, says. Winfrey’s Deborah is a woman so disordered by grief and grievance that she seems to live in a limbo of distress: Although her mother’s cells have enduring purpose, Deborah can’t find deep meaning for her own life. Byrne’s Skloot, sensing the inequity of a medical establishment profiting from Henrietta’s unwitting bequest but offering no compensation to her struggling descendants, persuades Deborah to team with her to excavate material for the book.
What got to Winfrey was less the science than the search. “Her thing was not about the money,” she says of Deborah. “It was, ‘I just want to figure out who my mother was.’ ” Winfrey herself professes amazement at having Lacks’ story revealed to her only now. “And I lived in that town for eight years!” she declares, referring to her work as a reporter for a television station in Baltimore, the city where Lacks died. Ultimately, though, she says, she’s grateful there was another journalist to piece together this key bit of scientific history. “We owe a lot to Rebecca Skloot,” Winfrey says. “Had she not been persistent, we would not know the story.” PETER MARKS (THE WASHINGTON POST)

According to search warrants related to the investigation into the 2016 death of Prince, a doctor prescribed oxycodone for the musician under the name of a friend to protect his privacy. One affidavit among several court documents unsealed Monday says Dr. Michael Todd Schulenberg admitted he prescribed oxycodone for Prince in a Prince’s associate’s name “for Prince’s privacy.” Autopsy results showed that Prince died from an accidental overdose of fentanyl. The documents suggest Prince was struggling with prescription opioid addiction. (AP)

“What disappoints me about Conde Nast new Vogue Arabia EIC is that a Portuguese man replaced an authentic [point of view] ... for women in the region.”
@EVEPEYSER, tweeting about how far White House press secretary Sean Spicer has come since he dressed up as the Easter Bunny during the George W. Bush administration. At the time, Spicer worked in the office of the U.S. Trade Representative. At this year’s Easter Egg Roll, Spicer got to show his face throughout and pose with whoever got stuck wearing the Easter Bunny costume.

Orlando and Nina’s friends are confused
Harry speaks candidly about grief therapy In an interview with the Telegraph, Prince Harry said he sought counseling following two years of “total chaos” after the death of his mother, Diana, in 1997. Harry said his brother, Prince William, encouraged him to seek help a few years ago. “All of a sudden, all of this grief that I have never processed started to come to the forefront and I was like, there is actually a lot of stuff here that I need to deal with,” he said. (AP)
Actors Nina Dobrev and Orlando Bloom have been spotted out together, but various sources disagree about whether the two are romantically involved. “They’ve known each other for a while. Recently, they’ve been hanging out as more than friends. It’s super-casual,” one source told People magazine of the two actors, who were seen at Coachella this weekend. Dobrev’s representative told People they are just friends, adding, “They have the same represenntation and friends in common, and often end up p in the same social group.” A third source said the two “are having fun together.” (EXPRESS)
Tyrese sorry for sharing opinion no one asked for
We’ll never know why people bad with money got money taken away
Actor Tyrese Gibson apologized for a BET interview last week in which he used derogatory words for women who he said “are never without a man because they don’t have no standards.” Gibson wrote Saturday on Instagram, “This is about a man owning up to his actions, taking responsibility, recognizing how to do better and actually doing better. Ladies, you deserve better.” (EXPRESS)

Silent treatment helps Bieber evade charges Justin Bieber won’t face charges for allegedly headbutting a man before the Grammy Awards in February. TMZ reported that Bieber’s attorneys refused to let Los Angeles police speak with him, stalling the investigation. Meanwhile, Bieber’s alleged victim also refused to speak to police, and reportedly was not interested in filing charges. (EXPRESS)
“It brings you much closer. I’d much rather have a smoke with my grown kids than a drink.”
The IRS has “drained” bank accounts belonging to actors Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott, the New York Post reported. The news comes after months of money woes for the couple: They were hit with a tax lien of more than $700,000 in July, and were sued by American Express for unpaid bills totaling more than $87,000 in November. It was not clear what compelled the IRS to drain the accounts. (EXPRESS)
