The Kardashians seem to be everywhere, but don't expect to spot them often on the White House TVs. First Lady Michelle Obama admits in an interview with iVillage that her husband isn't too pleased when the couple's daughters try to turn on E!'s first family.
As is the case with many parents, the First Lady and President Obama have TV viewing limits for daughters Sasha and Malia - no Web or channel surfing during the week, unless it's related to homework. That rule is let up a little bit on the weekends, when they're allowed to tune in to the tube.
While Mrs. Obama doesn't specify if there are any shows strictly off-limits, she does say that "Barack really thinks some of the Kardashians - when they watch that stuff - he doesn't like that as much."
But, she continues, "I sort of feel like if we're talking about it, and I'm more concerned with how they take it in - what did you learn when you watched that. And if they're learning the right lessons, like, that was crazy, then I'm like, OK."
It doesn't sound like the Obamas have anything to worry about - Mrs. Obama says that Malia, 13, and Sasha, 10, are "terrific girls. They're poised and they're kind and they're curious."
Like with any mother, she knowingly jokes, "I am just hoping that I don't mess them up."
Thank you for every other informative site. Where else may just I get that type of info written in such an ideal means? I've a project that I'm just now working on, and I have been on the look out for such info.
Brings back too many memories of his mother and father, he hates the whole inter-racial thing, you know him being a racist and all. POS
How this feud will unravel has yet to unfold, but it would be in all our best interests to run out and buy head to toe leopard (or any animal) print outfits that will serves as the new “what to wear to war” garb, replacing those drab army green army fatigues, which are sooo last season, rather, sooo last war or what have you http://bit.ly/o4ZXLE
"The Kardashians" is a cheap show that portays the sad state of affairs in American. We are willing to watch a bunch of spoil rotten nobodies ride on their stepfather's fame while flauting their excesses and the use of foul language while the average American struggles to pay their bills. This is not quality entertainment; just glorified W#@@#trash tv just like "Jersey Shores". I am a liberal, a minority and a naturally born us citizen, with a college education. So the Obamas do well to raise their girls away from this trash. So color or political affiliation has nothing to do with it. This program is distastefull and shows the ignorance and lack of culture of many americans rich and poor, black or white.
I truly hope the Kardashians get to read this post.
This pro choice fiscally conservative independent agrees with you 100%. DVDs of The Kardashians will someday be excavated and used to date the decline of the US.
I agree with ur 153PM coment @pliny !
such nasty raceist reemarks. Must all be a bunch of republicans. Probably southern evangelicals. Love thy neighbor an all that stuff. Once again you have shown the world how biggoted and stupid you all really are. Glad a father takes n interest in what his children watch .
Finally, something I agree with him on.
First off, why in the world is it important or even in the news?? PEOPLE ARE DYING OF STARVATION, AIDS, AND NOW IM DYING FROM STUPIDITY! There is a much bigger need for publicity in areas a little more important.
You're an ignorant tool. Moronic trolls like you should be killed for being too stupid to live. This is an entertainment page. Nothing more, nothing less. Get that through your pointy little head numbskull.
Well, this is certainly one issue that I can agree with Obama on!
@ Evel , yes darling, that's because we (u n me) have no souls. So they're insults roll off of us like melted butter on hot corn..lol. just the way ur comments roll off of me.
But Obama is black and likes to play basketball any free time he has. So I bet the Kardashian women luv watching him on TV. Yum. -Art
i ment evel.. observer..yes..go 4 it, at least try.. he getting like tracie w the same old same old..yawn..
@Pliny..lmao..yes u will take him down! That's funny. Good luck w that hun
I like the way you go after Observer, the conservative stooge. Keep up the good fight!
I'm disgusted with adults who watch that show!
Right,if they locked like Carne Wilson or the big girl that just won an Emmy for best actress white people would just laugh .
The Kardashans do the same thing any other rich white girls do. White people hate the two sisters because they are attractive and they love men of color.
For once I agree with the Obamas. NO ONE SHOULD WATCH THE KARDASHIANS!!!!!
Please let this be the start of the Kardashian backlash. Finally, I can agree with our president on something – he should build his platform around this cause he'd win for sure!!!
Omg..you guys are so twisted.
Most of this comments are stupid, ridiculously & retardedly funny!!! Life is a joke so why not be blissfully ignorant & kid. But I do gotta agree... That show does nothing to kids. "like seriously" (closing my eyes while saying that) let me smell my own farts and enjoy them like ery'one else. I'll be dam if I allow my daughter to watch it like zombies
Traci is a dude.
Traci is a dude with infant-sized genitals.
Traci is a hermaphrodite.
Traci needs genitals from both genders because neither gender wants anything to do with Traci.
Traci is a coward.
You can insult traci any way you wish....and the gutless troll doesn't have the stomach (or the brains) to defend itself.
Pliny is an Internet tough guy who picks the lowest hanging fruit (e.g. Traci). It's like picking on that retarded Palin kid.
To "Hello, its me" and the rest of the Obama Haters and racist blogger, it's a shame you are so lonely and desperate for attention, that you have to make unwarrented, racist statements about this countries First Family, especially to an innocent child. I'm sure for those that know you, despise you! The internet is your haven, and you have nothing positive to contribute in this world.
I used '400MD' as a name to make a statement, and apparently anyone can use it as well. I did not make a reply statement to my own original comment, except for this one. PLEASE, ADDRESS THIS ASAP!! Your bloggers are out of control, and you're not monitoring the comments well by email.
This will be my final comment, from the original 400MD. Thank you.
I don't even know how Tracie gets on these blogs. Tracie is twisted and down right disgusting. I'm so sick of the doo doo stuff. Please CNN, stop this person.
Obama is the only black guy that hasn't slept with at least one of the sisters.
He's slept with your sisters.
We all have.
Even the wookie looking wench married a bro.
Laughed so hard almost peed my pants! Good one. I wonder why Michelle would allow them to watch at all since most black women hate the Kardashians. The Kardashians on the other hand...
@Pliny, they're all 5luts so don't feel like you're special.
>>>they're all 5luts
So...they take after your mother.
@Ahoot- most black women do not hate the Kardashians. Where did you get that from? They are nothing more or less to black women than any other reality star. You either love them or hate them, which is the reaction most women, not just black women, have when it comes to them. It's the same thing with any of the "Real Housewives" or any other show that purports to depict regular people and their so-called everyday lives. Please don't speak for the majority when you clearly are not a part of it.
Oh, my little @Pliny, do you really think you of all people can get to me with that small time troll? I've been here a long time for a reason.
No, actually they take after your wife and daughters.
The Obama's are a lovely family but they all have very bad posture. They should be eating dinner at a table with straight back chairs.
This photo was taken a few months back. They are not having dinner, they are actually watching the world cup soccer tournament. And like most Americans watching a sporting event – they have a variety of snacks.
Obama is a liberal stooge. Typical that he cannot even manage to control what his kids watch on tv. No wonder the nation is going south so fast.
Are those feet or flippers attached to Michelle ankles?
No Obsurder. The nation is going south because idiots like you have no respect for the office of the President.
We all know that your hatred for the man springs from your hill-billy racism.
And we know that because racism is all your weak-mind is capable of.
Critical thinking is way beyond you. In your case, that flaw is genetic.
That often happens in severe cases of multi-generational incest...like your family tree.
So Obsurder....do yourself (and America) a favor. Slit your wrists.
Because you contribute nothing of any value (your wife confirms that it's you contribute nothing in the bedroom either).
Well said – if he can't control what his kids watch on TV, after saying he doesn't approve, he surely can't manage the country and that's evident.
Rather a liberal stooge than a conservative, christy practicing tea bagger...
And which back woods, back water, backward thinking racist demographic do you represent? Oh, nevermind – I answered my own question.
Tracie never said anything about her race. She just said she looked like a porker. (meaning: heavy-set or overweight.) Isn't it ironic that Michelle promotes healthy eating but her daughter appears to be overweight? Michelle- obesity is not a race. Maybe you should go back to school.
Perhaps you should lean to read, when Traci refers the ole blackies that a racist remark and uancalled for as well
as commenting on a child.
Such a hateful bunch of idiots!!!!
Oh Lulu! I cannot read what I cannot see. I didn't see that post. Had I seen it, I wouldn't have commented. I do not need to learn how to read. I already know. I will be the bigger person and not comment on your grammer skills.
I was responding to Tracie's earlier post where she referred to the first family as "darkies". That is most certainly a racist comment that had nothing to do with obesity. Rest assured – I know the difference. You needn't concern yourself with my level of education when your own is so obviously lacking.
My bad Michelle. I honestly didn't see that particular post. All I saw was the porker one. I'm not too proud to acknowledge my mistakes. My apologies to you. Sorry for that.
If you want to complain, complain about how many caucasian women are killing there babies for publicity. You are a bigot and a loser, get a life. And before you say something stupid like they're all on welfare , I am soldier and have been for 27 years.
A soldier on welfare?
Tracie, regardless of your feeling about the Obamas you should at least refrain from immature comments.
You can't blame him. Beautiful women with potty mouths.
Those Kardashian women are terrible role models I am sure everyone knows this,well almost everyone.
Does this mean the government will cancel it?
We can only hope.
I agree, with yall. My mom hates it!
I like Turtles.
