The Obamas dressed up in their Sunday best to attend an Easter church service in DC, and as usual, I’m totally in awe of this gorgeous family. Sasha and Malia looked beautiful (and age-appropriate) in their colorful Easter dresses, while the divine Mrs. O opted for a Prabal Gurung dress she’s worn a couple times before. Well played, Obama family! [Photo: Getty]
This weekend, the Barack Obama Facebook page posted this picture of the first couple attending a Veteran’s Day ceremony. My friend Molly immediately sent me the link along with the message, “What is Michelle wearing?! I want it!” I did some sleuthing (and by “sleuthing” I mean I went to the awesome website “Mrs. O,” which tirelessly chronicles all of Michelle’s fashion choices, and typed in “striped sweater”) and found out the photo is actually from last year, and the divine Miss O’s sweater is a Sonia Rykiel creation that’s no longer available. Sad, yes, but I found three other fabulous sweaters that feature hearts and stripes, and the best part? They’re all less than 100 bucks. Get the shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »
Yesterday, Michelle Obama made an appearance on “The Situation Room” to talk about kids and technology. “In my household, we try to establish a set of guidelines and rules that make sense—no computers, phones, television during the week,” she said of Sasha, 8, and Malia, 11. And if that weren’t bummer enough, when the girls do get to watch TV on weekends, they have only three options—Nickelodeon, The Disney Channel, or football with dad. “With their TV intake limited … we found over the break that they are both very good Taboo players,” Michelle told People earlier this year. Add this to the fact that the girls have a rigid set of chores and that they eat all organic food, and it has me wondering—are the Obamas too strict? [CNN, Softpedia, Telegraph UK] Keep reading »
Have you heard the news? The Obamas got a dog, and they’re naming him Bo! There were some conflicting reports about Bo over the weekend (is he, in fact, from a shelter?), so we thought thought we’d straighten out things regarding the new First Dog.
Bo is a 6-month-old Portuguese water dog (also known as a Portie).
Ever since President Obama made his campaign promise to daughters Malia and Sasha, the media hasn’t stopped talking about Malia’s allergies and how their dog must be hypoallergenic. Bo will not make her sneeze.
Sadly, Bo isn’t a shelter dog. Michelle had been fairly adamant that their puppy would most be a rescue dog, but Bo came from a breeder. He is a bit of a reject, however, because he was purchased by someone else and then returned to the breeder after Bo (then known as Charlie) annoyed his owner’s older Portie.

By now you’ve heard the totally unsubstantiated rumor that Michelle Obama might be pregnant. The chances of it being true are slim. After all, having just turned 45 years old, Michelle is of the age where it’s very difficult to conceive naturally, and something tells me that she and Barack (Is it disrespectful to be on a — one-sided — first name basis with the President and the First Lady?) aren’t making top secret trips to the fertility clinic. So, knowing this rumor is most likely going to end up being just that — a rumor — we can’t help but feel a little giddy at the thought of an Obama baby. Five reasons why, after the jump… Keep reading »
