For reasons unknown, Sanjaya Malakar was invited to the White House Correspondence Dinner a couple weeks ago.

Perhaps People magazine, which included the American Idol reject among its table in invitees (along with Project Runway star Tim Gunn) lost a bet of some sort.

Who knows. No matter the reason for his invite, Sanjaya’s presence did lead to a couple of humorous picture – and we’re not even referring to the one of Shyamali Malakar nude playing a guitar.

Instead, here’s a shot of Sanjaya and his mon, Jillian Blyth. They look nice, normal, loving. And they very well may be. She’s also high as a kite, we’re sure.

Then, there’s Malakar and Valerie Bertinelli, the random actress and ex-wife of Eddie Van Halen who’s back in the news for wanting to lose weight. And let’s not forget about Teri Hatcher stuffed into the middle of this photo.

We’ve gotta hand it to Sanjaya. Sure, he’d probably prefer to be with Hatcher’s Desperate Housewives co-star Eva Longoria instead. But for an untalented singer, the guy is doing pretty well for himself.
