Michelle Obama Not So Happy That Ladies Love Grabbing Barack’s Bum

Chris Andersen’s biography of the Obamas, Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage, comes out today, and in it he dishes on a lot more than the first couple’s date night. According to Andersen, women are constantly rubbing up against Barack, slipping him their digits, and whispering suggestive comments in his ear. “On more…

Today’s Lady News: Michelle Obama Says Women Face Bias In Health Care

On Friday, First Lady Michelle Obama spoke in favor of health care reform, reminding us that women still face bias from insurance companies which can still legally deny coverage to women based on “preexisting conditions like having a C-section or having had a baby.” Studies have shown women can be charged more than men of…

Thakoon Spring 2010: MObama-Worthy?

Get First Lady Michelle Obama on your side (or in one of your dresses), and your business is guaranteed to boom. That’s what happened to some of MObama’s favorite labels, like Thakoon. So, is it just us, or does Thakoon’s spring 2010 presentation look like it’s playing pretty hard to attract Michelle and all her…

How To Get Michelle Obama’s Arms

Woman’s got guns. And by guns, I mean a not-too-Madonna-esque but still muscle-y set of arms. I want them. Badly. Luckily, someone hunted down her trainer to get the how-to.
(Now, I’m not promising you results, just an exercise routine—we all don’t have a White House chef and organic garden at our disposal.) According…

Today’s Lady News: Michelle Obama’s Shorts Are Still News, Apparently

Stop the presses! Michelle Obama wore SHORTS! In public! As we said before, it is absurd the media thinks that the First Lady showing her legs above the knees is news. And now Time is jumping on the scrutinizing-the-famous-woman’s-body bandwagon, too, saying “[Michelle] just didn’t look particularly good in shorts. Her arms are much admired.

Forbes’ “100 Most Powerful Women” List Makes No Sense To Us

Forbes’ annual “Powerful Women” issue hits newsstands tomorrow, but their 2009 list of the 100 most powerful women in the world has left us scratching our heads. The magazine insists the list is based on power, not popularity. They go by press mentions and the size of the country, business or organization the woman runs.

Shortsgate: Michelle Obama Dares To Bare Her Legs!

Oh holy hell. First Lady Michelle Obama has caught some flack for daring to wear shorts while on vacation with her family at the Grand Canyon in 100+ degree heat. (Emphasis all mine because I cannot fathom the absurdity.) This morning on “The Today Show,” The Washington Post’s Robin Givhan and Mary Tomer,…

Is This How Michelle Obama Gets Her Famous Arms?

Everyone wants Michelle Obama’s amazing arms. However, no one wants to work to actually get them. Voilà the Shake Weight, a “revolutionary” exercise gadget for women that guarantees bangin’ muscles. All you do is hold the weight in front of you, grip the movable handle with both hands, and shake, shake, shake. You hardly…

Spotted! The Michelle Obama Clothes Line

Sure, she knows a thing or two about high-end designers (Jason Wu, anyone?), but that doesn’t mean First Lady Michelle Obama doesn’t wear less pricey ones. Her love of The Gap and J.Crew is well-documented and she recently wore both at the cover shoot for a new magazine, Children’s Health. The makeup artist on set,…

Weird And Random Celebrity Song Dedications

During his concert in Philly on Saturday, Elton John dedicated a song to Reese Witherspoon, who was there with her BF, Jake Gyllenhal. Before he started playing “Tiny Dancer,” Elton said, “Reese, this one’s for you.” We think it was pretty random of the singer to shout out Reese, but musicians are always busting out…

How To Rock A Fake Bob Like Michelle Obama’s

Leave it to America’s favorite trendsetter, Michelle Obama, to remind us about versatility and resourcefulness. This week, the First Lady showed up to a White House event looking like she had lopped off her hair. Turns out, she didn’t cut an inch, but fooled everyone with a fake bob style. A wonderful way to mix…

Michelle Obama Is More Popular Than The President

In the popularity contest that is D.C. politics, Barack Obama bested John McCain back in November. But recent polls have shown that if Barack were stacked up against his wife, Michelle, in a Great Big High School Cafeteria, he’d be sweating it out at the dork table.

In a recent Harris poll, 68 percent…

Michelle Obama: One Expensive First Lady

This week the White House released its “Annual Report to Congress on White House Staff,” which includes the salary of every White House employee. And if I’ve learned anything from looking over the report it’s that we should forget about Barack, because Michelle has one expensive entourage. She has a $90,000 Chief of Staff, with…

Stupid Tabloid Claim Of The Week: Is Michelle Obama A Lush?!

The war on Michelle Obama continues. This time it’s not her looks that her critics are attacking, but her sobriety. According to The National Enquirer, “Michelle Obama – cracking under the pressure of being First Lady – is drinking way more than she should, friends fear.” Oh really? The tabloid lists “close sources,” “friends,” and “insiders”…

What, No One Wants To Dress Like Michelle Obama Today?

The Thakoon dress Michelle Obama wore on the final night of last year’s Democratic National Convention is on sale on Gilt Groupe today for $498 and, surprisingly, wasn’t the first item by the designer to sell out (it was still available at 12:45). Were customers afraid to buy it for fear that when they wear…

Can Michelle Obama Inspire Another The Cosby Show?

It’s June now. The election was eight months ago. It’s kind of a random time for Robin Givhan at The Washington Post to pen a heady thinkpiece about What Michelle Obama, As A Black Woman, Means.

But whatever. I feel like I’m back at the Gender Studies department again!

Givhan, herself a…

Take An Alternate Dating Route From Michelle Obama, Says Blogger

Single women can learn a lot about dating from Michelle Obama, but one guy advises black women to take a different route than Michelle did, before another man passes them by. Most of his advice is logical. Some of it, I have to admit, I’m not ready to hear and probably never will be.
