    Getting a gun held to your head would be emotionally scarring enough for most. But for Josie Barnes, an armed robber added insult to injury as he branded her a 'fat cow' while he struggled to tie her up. She has since had the last laugh, though - the attacker's haunting words spurred on the pub worker to lose seven stone nine pounds. Josie, 29, went from a size 24 to a size 10 after the terrifying experience. She now weighs 10 stone 2 pounds and will slip into her dream wedding dress when she marries her fiancé Fatih this...

    Michelle Obama went to Boston for $600,000. the Boston Globe spoke glowingly of her words of praise for President Obama. But it was the last paragraph of the piece that was most telling. From the Boston Globe: “Yet while [Elaine] Schuster spoke from typed notes, the first lady used a TelePrompTer, despite the relatively small and friendly audience.” These birdbrains cannot get through a simple speech at a social gathering without a teleprompter. Goodness, he needed two just to speak to a sixth-grade class and he needed one for his first press conference. So here are the words Michelle Obama...

    It has been an action packed week for Michelle Obama. The First Lady began her first official state visit to Africa this week. Leaving the President behind, Michelle and her daughters Sasha and Malia began their five day trip where they will visit South Africa and Botswana. The First Lady said in a video message at the, "I'm doing this because we know that Africa is a fundamental part of our interconnected world. And when it comes to meeting the challenges of our time, whether it's climate change or extremism, poverty or disease, the world is looking to African...

    ‘Brightstar’ is out there making a name for herself in South Africa during a weeklong trip with every family member in tow, including her brother’s children, but not her husband the president. Brightstar is the name dubbed to Michelle Obama’s plane. Brightstar may flicker brightly over the dark continent but in her own country nothing shines from her. Even though touted loudly as a “goodwill trip”, there must be some South Africans wondering why it took America’s First Lady almost three years to disperse her goodwill in their country on a weeklong trip that leaves lots of room for photo...

    During her visit to South Africa, First Lady Michelle Obama stopped by the University of Cape Town for an event with young people. She told the audience how she came from modest circumstances and was able to attend top schools and build a career at a big law firm, saying they too can achieve their dreams if they try hard enough. After her speech, she was asked a series of soft questions like, "What advice can you give the youth today?" But at the end of the session, one young person in the audience asked Mrs. Obama, who has devoted...

    "How do you get Barack to believe he's in charge?" You had to forgive the cheeky question. The person asking it, popular radio personality Anele Mdoda, had been waiting in ridiculously high heels in one spot for over an hour for the world's favourite first lady to arrive for a photo opportunity, along with 74 other young African women chosen by their US embassies. Michelle Obama, glowing with enthusiasm, immediately burst into laughter. "A good man is happy with a strong woman," she said, before launching into a girly chat about the type of men we should let into our...

    Regardless of ones’ political disposition, this is a pretty cool video clip, the details of which are still somewhat unclear. What we know, however, is that during a recent meet and great with President Obama and wife Michelle were met with a an upset and crying baby. When asked for a photo with the commander-in-chief, the First Lady proceeds to hand the crying child to the president, only to watch the baby nearly instantly stop crying. Fonzie! Conspiracy theorists will likely call the baby a plant, and yes, we cannot prove that the alleged crying baby isn’t a

    ...the trip is already provoking disappointment from Africa advocates who argue that President Obama, whose father was Kenyan, hasn't devoted enough time to the continent since winning the presidency. Mwiza Munthali, public outreach director of TransAfrica Forum, argues that U.S. officials "are not seeing Africa as a big priority. There has been some ambivalence." The president has made just one trip to sub-Saharan Africa since his Jan. 2009 inauguration and has chosen not to accompany his wife on her journey. This isn't the first time the First Lady has come under fire for travel plans. Below we review some of...

Knowing what I know about her now, I am very curious to find out what her intellectual ability and her belief system may have been like during those influential, formative years!

    Michelle Obama cannot seem to make her mind up if she likes expensive designers or cheap chains. Also known for wearing H&M and Target, the First Lady boarded a helicopter on Friday sporting a 'Impressionist Print Draped Dress' from Gap, retailing at $29.99. Her choice of cheaper chain clothing during times of recession makes endears her to a cash-strapped public. Not one to stick to a genre, she is also often spotted in very expensive attire from designers such as Alexander McQueen and Tracy Feith. Leaving the White House bound for presidential retreat Camp David, the style-queen wore the

    Secret mall trips. Dining out incognito. Michelle Obama has constructed a life inside the bubble—and has her own sense of her 2012 role, Lois Romano reports in this week's Newsweek. The most recognizable woman in the world routinely ducks reporters to have what she calls a "normal" life. Hiding beneath a baseball cap, the first lady of the United States has picked through sale racks in the frenetic Tysons Corner, Va., mall with girlfriends, bought supplies for her dog at Petco using her own credit card, and dined at some of D.C.'s hippest eateries largely unrecognized. So secretive are her...

    When his wife unveiled the USDA's new nutritional plate yesterday, there definitely wasn't a space for chili dogs. But that didn't stop Barack Obama wolfing down two in Toledo today - with fries and an extra bowl of chili on the side.The president happily munched on the unhealthy meal before he visited the city's Chrysler factory, and even teased one of his hosts for ordering ketchup, a faux-pas in his home town of Chicago.

    No matter how you slice it, the days of milk and cookies are long gone as schools aim to provide students with healthy fruits and vegetables as snacks. But raw onions? That's what several classes of students at Southeast DC's Turner Elementary were fed Tuesday, instead of the zucchini slices the school's food provider, Chartwells, said it would serve as part of a federal initiative to provide healthy food to young learners. When Trevor Rill picked up the snack bags from the cafeteria for his third-grade class, he found bundles of raw scallions... "I asked the cafeteria workers, 'Are you...

    LONDON – There weren't any hugs, like last time, but U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama shared a warm handshake with the British queen and gained more fans during her state visit to the U.K. Mrs. Obama captured the nation's attention in 2009 when she affectionately put her arm on Queen Elizabeth II's back in a minor breach of protocol. On Tuesday, Mrs. Obama started the day off when she briefly shook the queen's hand at a Buckingham Palace ceremony. Her three dress changes throughout the day were closely watched by the British media — the BBC, among others, spent...
