Want Michelle Obama’s Arms? Get the Inside Scoop From Women’s Health


Women’s Health has revealed Michelle Obama‘s secrets for sculpting her bionic, headline-grabbing arms.

For the first time the First Lady’s personal trainer Cornell McClellan has detailed their regimen, which he says he’s put Obama through since 1997, starting at 5:30 a.m.

“She’s truly committed herself to the importance of health and fitness,” McClellan says. “I believe the purpose of training is to tighten up the slack, toughen the body, and polish the spirit. To do that, we take a holistic approach that includes strength, cardiovascular, and flexibility training.”

Media Overhype: Michelle Obama’s Shorts!

Just when the media world calmed down over First Lady Michelle Obama exposing her arms in sleeveless dresses, the frenzy begins again as Michelle reveals her legs in a pair of shorts!

On a recent family trip to the Grand Canyon in Arizona, the First Lady donned a pair of slate blue shorts and some critics are questioning whether that’s an appropriate attire for a woman of her rank.

Blindie thinks the real faux pas is that Michelle is wearing a pair of “mom shorts.” Similar to mom jeans, mom shorts are just as unflattering and should be banned from the American wardrobe. But we’re not mad at Michelle, because her legs look great!

Michelle Obama’s First Blindie Style Don’t: The Rainbow Brite Frilly Skirt in London


Wearing a skirt that resembles something little Sasha could’ve made in her arts and crafts class, Michelle Obama sabotaged her fashion resume with a Rainbow Brite/Wedding cake skirt on a trip to Westminster Abbey.

The First Lady, who is on summer vacation in the UK with daughters Sasha and Malia, “brightened up London’s grey skies,” according to The Sun, with her yellow and lavender layered cardigan and crazy skirt, which The Times says, “As a stack, they look like one of those modern, fancy wedding cakes that brides’ co-ordinate with their flowers.”

Also, what’s going on with her hair? She’s looking a little coneheadish. Obviously, you can all see that Blindie is not happy with this style mishap!

An American Family in Paris: The Obamas Become Parisian Tourists


The Obamas may be American royalty, but they’re spending their time as Parisian tourists this week.

Wrapping up his six-day trip abroad to the Middle East, Germany and the beaches of Normandy, the President joined First Lady Michelle and Malia and Sasha at the U.S. ambassador’s residence in Paris, where they’re staying.

The First Family’s tour of Paris began early Saturday evening at the Notre Dame cathedral, while on Sunday (which was Sasha’s 8th birthday) they took in the city’s best view atop the Pompidou Center.

“I would love nothing more than to have a leisurely week in Paris, stroll down the Seine, take my wife out to a nice meal, have a picnic in Luxembourg Gardens,” he said after taking his wife to dinner near the Eiffel Tower. “Those days are over, for the moment.”

The Obamas’ New York Date Night: Dinner And A Broadway Show


President Barack Obama made good on a campaign promise to wife Michelle and treated her to dinner and a Broadway show in New York City on Saturday.

The first couple arrived in Manhattan on a Marine One helicopter after flying into JFK airport aboard a Gulfstream 500 jet. They dined at the Greenwich Villge restaurant Blue Hill and took in the revival of August Wilson’s “Joe Turner’s Come Home” at the Belasco Theatre in midtown. Crowds lined the streets, cheering and waving, as the presidential motorcade made its way through the streets.

Always one to find fault with the Obama administration, the Republic National Committee crticized the President for jetting to New York for what they deemed as “a night on the town” during a recession and as General Motors prepares to file for bankruptcy -the fourth largest in U.S. history.

The Obamas paid for dinner and theatre tickets themselves while taxpayers will foot the bill for the plane ride, estimated by The New York Post at $24,000 per aircraft (3 were required for the trip), and for police security.

Color on the Cover: First Lady Michelle Obama Covers TIME


Michelle Obama has landed another cover: TIME Magazine.

The issue, which tries to define the “Meaning of Michelle,” features a striking photograph of the First Lady’s face. While we hated how uncomfortable she looked on the cover of Vogue in March, we’re really wondering how much airbrushing this photograph’s been under?

“I’m pretty much who I’ve been for a long time. So that … I just think that people have the opportunity to see all of who Michelle Obama is over a longer period of time,” she says. “And hopefully they like what they see. And I think they actually … to the extent that they saw all of me … liked what they saw then.”
