PETA’s Big Oops: Michelle Isn’t Happy About Her Surprise Ad Appearance

Ooooh … looks like somebody’s in trou-ble! Although, to be honest, it seems like PETA was asking for it when they decided to go ahead about put celeb faces on their latest ad with no one’s consent. The poster, which features the slogan “Fur-Free and Fabulous!,” photoshops together a handful of stylish stars who have spoken out against fur in the past—Oprah, Carrie Underwood, Tyra Banks, and the First Lady, Michelle Obama.

It’s unclear how the other ladies in the ad feel about this, but the White House is very upset about the surprise endorsement. PETA’s rationalization? “The fact is that Michelle Obama has issued a statement indicating that she doesn’t wear fur, and the world should know that in PETA’s eyes, that makes her pretty fabulous.”

A good cause? Perhaps. But we’re not too sure we’d want our faces associated with an ad whose copy sounds like a ladymag coverline, either. Besides, some of us around here like harem pants, but the last thing we want is to inadvertently end up their spokesmodel. [NBC Chicago] Keep reading »

Crazy Woman Arrested For Threatening To Kill Michelle Obama

Kristy Lee Roshia is not in the Christmas spirit. Last month, she called the Boston Secret Service and told some poor receptionist she had plans to “blow away” Michelle Obama. “I will kill Michelle Obama,” she said. “I will kill Marines.” This weekend, Roshia took things further and was arrested two miles away from the Hawaii vacation home where the Obamas will spend the holidays this week. She is being charged with threatening a family member of the president—and with assaulting a federal agent, since she struck one in the arms and face when they caught her.

Roshia, it turns out, is a woman with a dark past. Keep reading »

“Barack And Michelle Obama, A Lemon Flavored Nobel”

Illustrator Alexsandro Palombo captured President Obama‘s Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in a way that only this artist can — he added a little cheekiness and, of course, some fashion. Here’s what Palombo had to say about the event that occurred in Oslo on Dec. 10, 2009:

“Behind the success of a great man there is always a great woman, and this was made evident yesterday in Oslo when a highly moved Barack Obama received a well-deserved Nobel Peace prize, and as always at his side was his Michelle, who dressed in her lucky-charm sunny yellow outfit added a touch of color to the event.”

Quotable: Designer Says Michelle O Is No Jackie O

“Everyone compares her to Jackie O — she is not the next Jackie O.”

– Designer Douglas Hannant commented at Tobi Rubinstein Schneier’s House of Faith & Fashion discussion, which literally produced gasps from the audience. In fact, his words caused such a stir that after the fact, his “people” felt compelled to issue another statement from him:

“I did say ‘Michelle Obama is not another Jackie Kennedy and I do not consider to be a style icon.’ But in addition, I also said ‘She has so much more to her and has mass appeal. I admire her as a role model and think she will achieve great things in her position as First Lady.’ And by the way, I voted for Obama.”

Well alrighty. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Barbara Walters Names The Most Fascinating Person Of The Year


Last night the much-hyped “Barbara Walters Ten Most Fascinating People:2009 Special” aired on ABC and we finally learned who the top spot went to this year. You may have heard Walters selected Glenn Beck from Fox News, football stat Brett Favre, Kate Gosselin, Michael Jackson’s kids, Adam Lambert, Sarah Palin, Tyler Perry, Jenny Sanford (wife of South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford), and Lady Gaga who was adorable in her interview (clip above!). So who did the top spot go to? None other than Michelle Obama. After selecting Kate Gosselin and Sarah Palin, it would have been insulting if one of the Obama’s didn’t get the number one spot, don’t you think? Keep reading »

The Obamas’ State Dinner Not Quite A Rager

‘Tis the season for holiday parties, and Barack and Michelle Obama threw a big one last night—their first state dinner, honoring the prime minister of India. Held on the White House lawn, the Obamas invited politicos like Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, and Mike Bloomberg and assorted famous folks like Steven Spielberg, Katie Couric, and Gayle King—oddly, Oprah wasn’t on the guest list. Since the theme of the night was India, a vegetarian meal was served and Michelle wore a dress by an Indian designer. Other highlights of the night: a wardrobe malfunction when Senator Bob Casey lost his cummerbund, and a performance by Jennifer Hudson. I’m sure our invite just got lost in the mail?

Tabloid Cheat Sheet: Oprah And MObama Feuding? Katie Holmes’ $15 Million Tell-All Book?

It’s Wednesday, and is it just me, or has work been especially hard as we head towards the calorific holiday season? Just be glad that you won’t be critiqued by millions on your pecan pie-induced weight gain, and when you get too drunk at the office party, you won’t have to read about it on the cover of a magazine the next day. Celebrities aren’t so lucky. But their pain is our gain because their (possibly fictional) dramas are usually more interesting than anything we could make up on our own. And because we love you so much, we’ve read every tabloid that came out today and hand-picked the juiciest stories. Enjoy! Keep reading »

Michelle Obama Causes HUGE Scandal With Colorful Frock

In the sea of black skirts and gray overcoats at The Tomb of The Unknown Soldier, where our prez participated in a Veterans Day memorial, the Mrs. popped in robin’s egg blue. While her hubby laid a wreath in honor of America’s fallen heroes, Michelle Obama stood aside in her Maria Pinto teal sheath dress, color-coordinated J. Crew trench, and a perforated black waist belt. While we winced at her decision to repeat the same ensemble she wore to the 2008 Democratic National Convention, some onlookers are pretending to be all outraged by the first lady’s not-quite-mournful color palette. What do you think: fashion hit, major miss or completely ridiculous faux scandal? [Examiner] Keep reading »
