  • Michelle Obama said that even though they live in the White House, Sasha and Malia “can’t go in the refrigerator and get what they want,” she told Billy Bush. ”They can’t pick up the phone and order anything. They’re kids,” she said. “That’s the point that I make to them: You live in the White House, but you’re a child.”  It figures the Fitness Bot First Lady would strategize her daugthers’ diets with military-like  (or Madonna-like!) precision.

  • Halle Berry has filed child custody paperwork to move her three-year-old daughter Nahla to france, where her fiance Olivier Martinez lives. This is pissing off Nahla’s dad, model Gabriel Aubrey, but is proooobably a wise move anyway because Halle is getting death threats from a stalker (who used to threaten Madonna!). This scary dude escaped from a mental institution last week and Halle apparently is freaked out. [Uptown Magazine]

Reason #3,091 that Michelle Obama is awesome: she kicks ass in a potato sack race! The First Lady invited Jimmy Fallon to the White House to film a “Late Night” segment about her Let’s Move campaign, which in addition to inspiring kids to exercise also gets celebs doing cute things while breaking a sweat. Jimmy needs some help in the push-up department, but at least Bo still gave him some congratulatory licks on the face. [Hulu]

Michelle Obama Probably Didn’t Spend $50,000 At Agent Provacateur

Fierce FLOTUS
The First Lady does a mean push-up. Read More »

There’s a report going around that FLOTUS Michelle Obama spent $50,000 recently at high-end fancy lady lingerie shop Agent Provacateur. Annnnd that thanks to Mrs. Obama’s splurge, the store is enjoying increased sales all around. The shopping spree supposedly happened last year at the store’s Madison Avenue location, when the First Lady took the Queen of Qatar, Sheikha Mozah, on a shopping trip. 

But! Michelle Obama is better known for splurging at Target — not at luxury lingerie shops. She puts forth the image of being thrifty and down-to-earth, not egregiously spendy. And! Agent Provacateur doesn’t typically ever release their famous client list. So this seems overblown. It does , however, fit with our collective fantasy of the FLOTUS and POTUS having really sexy sex.

“It’s more interesting to imagine this conflicted situation here and a strong woman and — you know? But that’s been an image that people have tried to paint of me since the day Barack announced, that I’m some angry black woman. … You know, I just try to be me. And my hope is that over time people get to know me. And they get to judge me for me.”

– First Lady Michelle Obama reacts to portrayals of her as an “angry black woman.” Michelle has been dogged by this stereotype from the beginning of her husband’s campaign when rumors abounded that she ranted about “whitey”; more recently, New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor’s new book, The Obamas, alleges Michelle sparred with her husband’s staff. It is sad in our culture that a woman — who just happens to be black, and may or may not have reasons to be angry (ahem, ahem) — gets dismissively painted with a wide brush as an “angry black woman,” as if she is just behaving the way stereotypes say she is expected her to behave. The new book by MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry, Sister Citizen: Shame, Stereotypes and Black Women In America, is sadly quite timely. [Bossip
