This week, Barack Obama is expected to announce his running mate. Who will he choose? Many of the rumored contenders are men, but a few women, including Hillary Clinton, are rumored to have been considered. We here at the Frisky would love to see Obama pick a female as his VP. So, we’ve assembled a list of the ladies we think would make for a suitable candidate-mate. Keep reading »
Last night I was on “Showbiz Tonight” discussing Tyra Banks’ Bazaar cover, and the photo shoot within the magazine in which she dresses up as Michelle Obama. The shoot is not a fashion spread — i.e. there’s no “10 Looks Michelle Obama Will Need As A First Lady, As Worn By Model Tyra Banks” — and the interview accompanying the images isn’t really serious in nature, though Tyra does say that her Secret Service code-name would be “Kiss My Fat Ass”. Rather, it seems like Bazaar is trying to cash in on the Obama craze in any way they can, since they apparently couldn’t get the real woman to do a shoot with them. (By the way, I predict Michelle will be in Vogue, instead!) As for Tyra? Well, this is hardly the first cuh-razy stunt the talk show host has pulled. After all, Ty-Ty seems to feel like the world is The Tyra Show, and we’re all just lucky to get out alive. After the jump, six other classically nutty and self-absorbed “All About Tyra” moments.

With all the hullabaloo over Barack and Michelle Obama’s much watched fist-bump on Tuesday, we started thinking about how it compared to other political public displays of affection. Who could forget the never-ending kiss at the Democratic National Convention between Al and Tipper Gore? Some people are still holding back their lunch. Republican Presidential nominee John McCain has a PDA pattern of his own — at every rally he make sure to thank wife, Cindy, then gives her a polite kiss on the cheek. For others, as well as another photo of that fist-bump (we couldn’t resist), click after the jump… Keep reading »
So to preface this post, I want to make sure to convey that a woman’s style (or man’s style for that matter) or lack there of, should never be a topic covered by political pundits. It was mega annoying to hear Chris Matthews and the gang analyze Hillary Clinton’s blazers in the same breath that they discussed her health care policy. Though Michelle Obama isn’t running for office, we couldn’t help but notice she’s got some serious style that definitely brings to mind Jackie Kennedy’s fierceness. When she fist-bumped Barack on Tuesday (a moment which made me think these two probably have a vibrant sex life and frankly also made me salivate a little), I was like, “Damn, is she wearing a studded belt?” I’m sorry, but that is just cool. So, with that in mind, I decided to see what other fashion inspirations come courtesy of the possible future First Lady. Three looks, and how to get them, after the jump… Keep reading »
Barack Obama basically clinched the Democratic nomination for President last night and before he gave his monumental speech (he’s the first African-American to ever win the nomination for President of the United States), he and his insanely awesome, hot, purple-clad wife Michelle (we told you purple was on the up-and-up!) shared a fist bump. For some reason, this made me squeal in delight. I never realized how romantic and respectful and mutually appreciative and loving a frat-tastic fist bump could be. Could it be the new peck-on-the-cheek? Keep reading »
Politics aside, I think Barack and Michelle Obama are the cutest couple on the campaign trail (though John and Elizabeth Edwards were pretty sweet too) — here’s a video clip of Michelle describing how and why she fell for the Presidential candidate. It’s nice to see that even in the middle of a tough campaign, with all that mud-slinging and sleepless hours on the road, a couple like them still seems so in love. [You Tube] Keep reading »
