White House hosting state dinner; heightened security

WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- This week, the White House will host a state dinner for Mexican President Felipe Calderon, with a goal of keeping uninvited guests from crashing the party.

An embarrassing security breach was discovered after Obama's first state dinner for India's prime minister when it was learned that a Washington couple had crashed the party and even managed to shake hands with the president.

The buzz over the Calderon dinner is not as intense as that first one, but the guest list has plenty of glitter. Among the rich and famous of Mexican heritage who are on it: retired golfer Lorena Ochoa, actress Salma Hayek and "Desperate Housewives" star Eva Longoria Parker.
