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 to…

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.

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.

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.

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 of…

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.

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.

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.

Michelle Obama And Carla Bruni-Sarkozy Like To Coordinate Outfits

During the Obamas' weekend trip to France, Michelle Obama and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, the two most stylish first ladies we know, got to hang out for the second time.
