Live from Politico's WHCD Pre-Party!

Hollywood and D.C. collide this weekend for the White House Correspondents' Dinner!

Celebrities are already in town for the big event, and ABC7's very own Rebecca Cooper was at the Politico and HBO party with a red carpet look -- along with Guillermo Díaz, who plays Huck on "Scandal."

We also got to catch up with actress Bellamy Young, who plays Melody "Mellie" Grant on the hit show. On Friday, she toured D.C. sights with the Trust for the National Mall, and says she can't wait to meet real D.C. political leaders.

"It's a dream come true! I pretend to be in these situations for my day job, but to be surrounded by them...I'm so excited," she said.
