Even the busiest couples set aside time to veg out.
Chelsea Clinton says when she and her investment banker husband Marc Mezvinsky are both in town, they make every Sunday a movie date.
Making a point to sit in the back row, Clinton, 33, and her other half, "watch artsy, thought-provoking movies or documentaries, always on things we know nothing about, because we like to learn things together," the former first daughter tells Parade in its latest issue. "Or we go to blockbuster action movies. We have seen every awesomely bad and awesomely fantastic big action movie that's come out in the last eight years."

Chelsea Clinton and husband Marc Mezvinsky may be headed downtown, but they are moving on up – to a new $10.5 million condo across the street from New York City's Madison Square Park, the New York Post reports.
Clinton, 33, and Mezvinsky, 35, who married in July 2010, found the new love nest while on a walk in the neighborhood, where they already live. (The park is located in the low 20s, just east of Fifth Avenue and is not to be confused with Madison Square Garden.)
The posh pad boasts four bedrooms, 6½ bathrooms, a home office, media room and a family room that overlooks the park, according to the Post. The five-story building features an apartment on each floor with a keypad elevator.

President Barack Obama celebrated his second inauguration Monday night with a private party following his very public day.
The Obama family – including wife Michelle and daughters Malia and Sasha – headed to the White House later on in the evening for a black tie affair, which included celebrities and political stars, as well as a late night buffet of desserts.
The Obamas were surrounded by 300 family and friends, including Bill Clinton (without his wife Secretary of State Hillary Clinton), John Kerry and Colin Powell. Lucky celebs who landed an invite were Swizz Beatz and wife Alicia Keys – who shared her inauguration photos with PEOPLE – Usher, John Legend and fiancée Chrissy Teigen, Jennifer Hudson, Katy Perry and John Mayer (who were "quite cute," says a source), Kelly Clarkson and her fiancé Brandon Blackstock, Eva Longoria, Kerry Washington and country star Brad Paisley.

The state of the Secretary of State has improved.
Hillary Rodham Clinton was discharged from New York Presbyterian/Columbia Hospital in Manhattan on Wednesday after checking in on Sunday for treatment of a blood clot in a vein in her head.
News photos showed the secretary, 65, leaving the facility with her husband, former President Bill Clinton, and daughter Chelsea. It is reported that she is now resting at the Clinton home in Chappaqua, N.Y.
"Her medical team advised her that she is making good progress on all fronts, and they are confident she will make a full recovery," Philippe Reines, a senior adviser to the secretary, said in a statement.

What are friends for, if not to help pay tribute with some good-natured ribbing?
Which is what Jennifer Aniston and her fiancé Justin Theroux did Thursday night, when the 26th American Cinematheque honored her Along Comes Polly costar Ben Stiller at a Beverly Hilton gala that also featured Will Ferrell and Jack Black on stage, and, in video clips, Tom Cruise, Judd Apatow, William Shatner, Conan O'Brien, Ben's parents Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara, sister Amy Stiller, and that showbiz newcomer, former President Bill Clinton.
On stage, Theroux – a longtime friend and writing collaborator of Stiller's – introduced a laugh-out-loud video that starred Cruise, Owen Wilson, Robert Downey Jr., Al Pacino and Noah Baumbach – as well as Aniston, who made an onscreen cameo.

From Colombia to South Africa, it seems like everywhere Hillary Clinton goes these days, she has a smile on her face – even when she's walking the dogs.
The U.S. Secretary of State was spotted flashing an ear-to-ear grin while out with the family dogs and husband Bill Clinton in East Hampton, N.Y., on Tuesday.
Sporting shades and an oversized hat, Hillary was nearly unrecognizable, while Bill showed off his presidential smile as he tried to keep up with chocolate Labrador Seamus.

Chelsea Clinton might have political pedigree in the form of dad, former President Bill Clinton, and mom, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, but so far she's declined to step into the public-service arena herself – until now.
Speaking to Vogue in its September issue about possibly diving into politics, she reversed her usual stance, answering, "I don't know," when asked if she'd consider a political career.
"Before my mom's campaign I would have said no," Clinton, 32, said about her mom's unsuccessful 2008 presidential bid. "Not because it was something I had thought a lot about, but because people have been asking me that my whole life."
"And now I don't know," she continued. "I mean, I have voted in every election that I have been qualified to vote in since I turned 18."

Sylvia Woods, whose namesake soul-food restaurant has been a Harlem landmark for nearly half a century, died Thursday at her home in Westchester County, N.Y., only hours before she was to receive a special award from New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, reports The New York Times.
She was 86, and although no cause of death was announced, Woods had been suffering with Alzheimer's disease the past few years. Her family said she was surrounded by loved ones at the time of her death.
"We lost a legend today," Bloomberg said Thursday, reports New York's Daily News. "Generations of family and friends have come together at what became a New York institution."
