Celebs Critique Congressman Anthony Weiner Scandal at Hope for Children Gala
By Len Brown
From Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony to John Legend, the stars came out in full force for the Samsung Hope for Children Gala at Cipriani Wall Street in NYC tonight.
The celebrities were dressed to kill as they all expressed their support for Samsung and their efforts to enrich the lives of children everywhere. Sherri Shepherd from "The View," when she wasn't talking about wedding plans, was one of the celebs who were very vocal with their opinion on the worthy cause.
"I love the fact that Samsung is putting its money where its mouth is," Shepherd stated. "They put 30 million dollars over 10 years and to partner up with charities... They're investing in the youth. I love that."
The children were certainly in everyone's mind this evening, but one topic that didn't flee from people's consciousness was the Congressman Anthony Weiner Twitter scandal. Almost everyone had something to say in regards to the news, including the always outspoken "Real Housewives of New Jersey" starCaroline Manzo who seemed to exhibit some disappointment.
"You know what, I just wish he would have stood up to the plate initially and admitted it," Manzo said. "Things like that you can't hide. It's going to bite you in the butt."
