Carla Bruni Sells Out Michelle Obama

French first lady Carla Bruni was supposedly extremely unhappy with the unauthorized biography Carla: A Secret Life, which claimed that she had extensive plastic surgery and was a man eater who still flirts to make hubby Nicolas Sarkozy jealous. So she decided to participate in another biography, Carla and the Ambitious, by Michael Darmon and Yves Derai. But it seems to me that many of the claims in this new book are just as inflammatory. It claims that her husband would be happy to serve just one term—which should go over well with voters?—and similarly describes Carla as a “femme fatale.”

Quotable: Michelle Obama Doesn’t Talk Weight With Her Girls

“We have conversations around health, food, and activity. I tell them sports are something I want them to engage in because it’s good for them. It’s good to practice teamwork, to understand what it means to suffer a loss, to win with grace. It has nothing to do with weight, it has everything to do with being a well-rounded person…I never talk about weight with my girls. I try not to even talk about my weight. Because you’re right, it is a sensitive issue. My girls are preteens and they’re seeing their bodies in a whole different way.”
