    We had political royalty in Miami Tuesday night. Former First Lady Michelle Obama had a ladies night out at Seaspice. Executive chef Angel Leon was tasked with preparing a curated six course menu featuring the highlights of the riverside restaurant’s special menu. Other guests at the meal included Debra Lee, CEO of BET Networks; former presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett; and Tracy Mourning. Earlier they had been attending the Leading Women Defined conference in Miami Beach. Obama, seated on a private outdoor terrace, dined on oysters, caviar stone crabs, 1855 prime ribeye. For dessert: tres leches. We ‘re sure the ex...

    It's not easy living life in the public eye. With all the pressure that comes with leading a public life, from the Senate to the White House, Michelle Obama *must* know a thing or two about work-life balance. And in finding that balance comes happiness. In a recent interview with Refinery 29 for International Women's Day, Obama sat down to speak with a number of girls from around the world to talk about the importance of girls' education and empowerment. When asked by 20-year-old Pearl Quarmyne, from Ghana, about her "most effective daily habit," Obama responded in the sincerest way....

    Former First Lady Michelle Obama announced the title of her hotly anticipated first memoir, Becoming, and it’s Nov. 13 release date—when it will be simultaneously published in 24 languages worldwide—in a statement to PEOPLE on Sunday. “Writing Becoming has been a deeply personal experience,” Obama says. “It has allowed me, for the very first time, the space to honestly reflect on the unexpected trajectory of my life … how a little girl from the South Side of Chicago found her voice and developed the strength to use it to empower others.” The yet-unreleased book jacket portrait of the author, whose...
  • Obama Portrait Artist Likes to Paint African-American Women Holding Heads of Decapitated White Women

    Can you imagine if Donald Trump’s official portrait artist painted white women holding the decapitated heads of African-American women? There would be social chaos. But as Americans we are supposed to sit back and applaud Obama’s artist for chopping off the heads of white women to be carried like a trophy by African-American women? Was this artist, Kehinde Wiley, paid with public tax monies to paint Obama’s portrait?

    The National Portrait Gallery on Monday unveiled portraits of former President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama — to a very mixed reception. Even though Barack Obama praised Baltimore-based artist Amy Sherald “for so spectacularly capturing the grace and beauty and intelligence and charm and hotness of the woman I love,” many critics on social media slammed the rendition of the former first lady. Their main question: Is that really her? […] For the portrait, the former first lady was painted in “grayscale” — a charcoal color with taupe undertones. She’s seated, with her hair falling around her shoulders,...

    by Gina Cassini | TRNOn Thursday morning's "Ellen," Michelle Obama gave her very first live interview since she left the White House a year ago. And in just the first few minutes on air, Michelle couldn't help but tell a BIG lie about Melania Trump, and "The Gift." If you recall, on the day of Donald J. Trump's inuguaration, Melania Trump graciously presented a present to Mr. Obama -- from Tiffany's in New York City. It was a lovely gesture. But you wouldn't have known it from Michelle -- who didn't seem pleased at all. In fact she acted like she...

    Former President Barack Obama transferred executive power to Donald Trump on Jan. 20, 2017, but that wasn't the only memorable exchange that took place that day. During a recent visit to "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," Michelle Obama recalled the awkward moment that incoming first lady Melania Trump handed her a ribbon-wrapped gift, which she hadn't anticpated. In an interview set to air Thursday, Obama told the host that the problem wasn't that the gift was unwelcome. It simply was a surprise, given the occasion. "Well, there’s all this protocol," she explained. "I mean, this is like a state visit, so...

    Michelle Obama and daughter Malia got some extra R&R during their Hawaiian vacation by hitting up a local yoga studio. The former First Lady Wednesday was spotted at Corepower Yoga in Kailua, Hawaii where the Obamas have been vacationing for the holidays. Michelle looks incredibly fit -- as usual -- and visibly happy. That million dollar smile says it all.Although Malia joined her mom... there was no sign of Barack or Sasha. As for the family as a whole, splitting your time between yoga classes and the beach doesn't seem all that bad. Namaste!

    Michelle Obama trumped Melania Trump in winning over the hearts of the American people. Michelle Obama placed second in Gallup's poll of the most admired women in the US, while Melania Trump earned the No. 8 spot. Trump has received backlash for wearing expensive outfits, which can make her seem out of touch with Americans. Obama, meanwhile, used her fashion choices to represent social and political initiatives. On Wednesday, Obama earned the No. 2 spot on Gallup's poll of Americans on the woman living anywhere in the world they admire most. The No. 1 spot went to Hillary Clinton. Obama...

    Former interim Democratic National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile said she should have “channeled” former first lady Michelle Obama instead of telling her critics “go to hell” earlier this week after Brazile revealed "proof" that the Hillary Clinton's campaign had made inroads to take over the DNC during the 2016 campaign. “I want to channel another woman who I admire so much, and that is Michelle Obama, who said when they go low, you go high,” Brazile told Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Wednesday night. “And perhaps what I did on Sunday when I told some of my detractors to...

    If a woman is to finally serve as President of the United States, Michelle Obama has the best chance to make a strong run and win. What is more, according to a new poll, the former first lady would win the Democratic nomination out of a crowded field of possible candidates — even against former Vice President Joe Biden. Michelle Obama for president in 2020 is not confirmed, but according to a Zogby Analytics survey of 682 participants via telephone, Democratic primary voters favor the ex-FLOTUS. Michelle Obama leads with 22 percent among candidates whose names have been floated about...

    Former House Speaker John Boehner shed some light on former President Barack Obama's smoking habit and his relationship with his wife Michelle in a new interview. Boehner told Politico about his encounters with Obama in a major interview detailing his 25 years at the top of the Republican party in Washington. Boehner summarized the differences between himself and Obama with an anecdote from a 2011 meeting between the two when it came to their vices. “I’m smoking a cigarette, and they bring me a glass of merlot. And we’re sitting there a little while, and here’s the president drinking iced...

    Isn’t Michelle Obama adorable? She actually thinks she is a typical woman in the United States, and that she can speak for all of us. Michelle says she has no interest in running for president, trying to shatter what Hillary Clinton called the “highest and hardest glass ceiling,” but she might consider bursting out of that elitist, condescending Beltway Bubble. Speaking recently at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women, Obama pushed women to speak up for themselves in the workplace. “Don’t waste your seat at the table,” she said. “If you are scared to use your voice, then you’ve got to...

    Neither Michelle Obama, Barack Hussein Obama nor Hillary Clinton will go away. Why does the media keep giving them a platform and allow them to continue to encourage and enable division in America? The former First Lady’s latest attention-grabbing stunt was to dismiss the entire GOP as entirely male and white. Needless to say, the Republican Party is not taking kindly to Mrs Obama’s reckless race-baiting. “It’s unfortunate Michelle Obama would disregard the contributions of conservative women and people of all backgrounds with one sweeping, false accusation,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told Fox News on Thursday. Obama’s comments came on...

    Former first lady Michelle Obama lamented Tuesday that the lack of diversity in the Republican Party and Congress as a whole is part of the reason why the American people don’t trust politics. Speaking with television producer Shonda Rhimes at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women in Philadelphia, Mrs. Obama said she noticed the stark contrast in diversity and “color” between the two parties every time she attended the State of the Union address while her husband was office. “Usually at the State of the Union address … when you’re in the room, what you can see is this real dichotomy,”...

    Michelle Obama was outspoken about what today’s young generation is learning from President Donald Trump and how they won’t “tolerate” certain values he represents. The former first lady appeared at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women on Tuesday to discuss a mix of topics, many of which had to do with the current presidency and how it’s impacting the nation’s next generation. CNN recapped many of Michelle Obama’s statements when it came to addressing the differences between her husband’s administration and Trump’s. Adhering to her signature rule of not uttering Trump’s name when attacking his leadership, she managed to get her...
