Gabrielle Union Felt Right at Home at White House

Prince Williams/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- During actress Gabrielle Union’s sit-down on the Chelsea Lately show Thursday night to promote her new film, Think Like a Man, the talk briefly shifted from relationships to politics when Union recalled her dinner with the Obamas.

“I guess I was thinking that they would have pate and this super fancy stuff, so we’re trying to eat before we go, just in case they didn’t have good food,” the actress told Chelsea Handler.

But Union was in for a surprise when she arrived at the White House with boyfriend and Miami Heat basketball player Dwyane Wade.

“We get there and [Obama's] got Jay-Z playing and Janet Jackson, potato salad and baked beans and we’re like, ‘Yeah!’ So we ate again.”

The star kept the laughs coming as she talked about the bong-loving “losers” she’s dated and getting her hair weave pat-down by the TSA, joking that airport security thinks she has “weapons of mass destruction” in her hair.

Chelsea Handler Reveals She Had an Abortion, Rips '16 and Pregnant'

Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Chelsea Handler is best known for pulling out all the stops when it comes to her comedy -- and when it comes to revealing details about her personal life.  She tells The New York Times, “I had an abortion when I was 16 because that’s what I should have done. Otherwise I would now have a 20-year-old kid.”

The abortion decision didn’t come lightly for Handler, who also says she's aggravated by the fact that pregnant teens nowadays are being praised with spots on shows like MTV’s 16 and Pregnant. Handler tells The New York Times, “Getting rewarded for being pregnant when you’re a teenager? Are you serious? I mean, that makes me want to kill somebody.”  She added, “We’re seeking out such grossness in human behavior and want such mindless entertainment. We need to be focusing on other things.”
