First Lady Michelle Obama and talk show diva Oprah Winfrey are not all smiles and buddy-buddy as they’d like us all to believe according to the new book “The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House” by Ed Klein, reports RadarOnline.
The two female powerhouses have allegedly had some ugly confrontations before and after Barack Obama was elected president. Reportedly, Mrs. Obama has accused Oprah of using the White House to her own advantage in order to hike up her TV ratings. Both women are also being accused of raking each other over the coals to close associates.
But wait, it supposedly gets nastier!
“Michelle hates fat people and doesn’t want me waddling around the White House!” Klein then alleged Mrs. Obama told her staff, regarding the invite to Oprah’s show to discuss obesity, “Oprah, with her yo-yo dieting and huge girth is a terrible role model. Kids will look at Oprah, who’s rich and famous and huge, and figure it’s OK to be fat.”
Klein does state that the president has maintained his close ties with Oprah despite the fact that his wife has delegated the job of dealing with her to aides. Sources also contend that the president telephones Oprah at night to get her opinion on how he can become more popular with the masses, which makes the allegedly jealous Mrs. Obama not very happy. “Michelle thinks he should turn to her, not Oprah, for that kind of advice,” the book quotes an anonymous source.
