The White House today issued an angry denial following claims that Michelle Obama indulged in a $50,000 shopping spree at a luxury lingerie boutique in New York. According to a report in the Sunday Telegraph yesterday, Agent Provocateur's boutique in Madison Avenue, New York, was partially closed off for the U.S. First Lady. But Kristina Schake, Director of Communications for First Lady Michelle Obama told MailOnline this morning: 'This story is 100 per cent false.'

Same here. True, or not, the real problem is that it's plausible.

So what will the story be when Agent Provocateur shows up with the receipt?
The IRS can't be sicced on 'em to stop 'em from doing so as they're a British company.

I’m sure that when Michelle Obama enters a store, the Secret Service freely allows people to enter or leave the store.

The denial is very likely completely accurate. She did not spend exactly $50,000.

Was the bill more or less, that is the key question?

'Along with the the Queen of Qatar, Sheikha Mozah, she closed off part of Madison Avenue to spend time in the luxury lingerie shop.'
And despite the claim that...'Agent Provocateur never discusses any of its clientele or their purchases.'
...Agent Provocateur isn't denying that Sheikha Mozah was shopping there or that she was a customer.

I don't know about this store but NYC has plenty of clothing stores, which cater to wealthy clientele, that operate by appointment only.

Every time a member of a White House family shops in Manhattan, the nearby streets are shut. I don’t know if she shopped at that joint, but if she did, there is no question the cops closed off Madison Ave.

It was $48000, tops. Was that, like, because of a surcharge for extra fabric costs?

For some strange reason, the skimpier and sexier any langere is, the more revolting and totally contrary to the immutable laws of profitable pornography, the more revolting an image of Moochelle becomes.

Scratch that...in Madison Avenue, New York...
I would deny it too.
Thinking it happened in London for some reason.
Not enough sleep last night.

It sounds like it is something that is so embarrassing to her that she is sending out her minions to lie about it.

Alas! I didn't think the women had enough civility to be embarrassed about anything. It is a hint of conscience in the women... albeit, it seems to make her go the lying route to cover up for what she did. she is shameful.

The mere mention of Michelle Obama and lingerie in the same sentence is enough to cause one to lose their lunch. And the cost of a replacement lunch just keeps going higher in the Obama economy.

>>>It was $48,000, tops.<<<

The tops are cheap ‘cause there’s nothing up there to cover.

It’s the bottoms that involve the bales of fabric being rolled out of the warehouse.

This story is 100% false

Yeah, it was a $500,000 shopping spree. You missed a 0.

“Penthouse” and “Hustler” are smart enough not to run Moochelle centerfolds—they don’t want to drive their readers, projectile barfing, to the nearest commodes.

What a waste. $50,000 lingerie still won’t get a rise out of her swishy husband.

“I don't know about this store but NYC has plenty of clothing stores, which cater to wealthy clientele, that operate by appointment only.”

I think we all know the Secret Service would probably insist a store be closed off if the President or his wife were in there.
Just watched a documentary last night on the SS; amazing group of men and woman.

Michelle is furious again- what else is new? But, not that Americans know how much she is spending while they struggle. She is most likely angry because the lingerie she bought was to wear with her (reported) paramour. She didn’t want Barack to know...they have such a perfect marriage, doncha know.

I'm still puzzled by my own comments. You know that's not typical of me.
Perhaps there is something in my subconsciousness that I can't recall right now.
If I remember I'll post it.

My theory: The rumors are true that she IS cheating and she’s pissed because it redflags dumbo to her antics.

what happily married woman would spend $50k on underwear?
