The Obama's are getting closer and closer to putting 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in their rear view, and the first lady could not be more ready for that transition. The last eight years have apparently taken a toll on Michelle Obama and she is ready to start living, once again, as a private citizen.
A new book called First Women: The Grace and Power of America's Modern First Ladies, written by Andersen Brower, claims M.O. describes the White House as "a really nice prison," and that Michelle once told former French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, "It's hell. I can't stand it!"
According to the book, the first lady is eager to start traveling the world as a public speaker.
The book also goes into the surprising way Mrs. Obama escapes the pressure of the West Wing by watching The Real Housewives of Atlanta each night. Hey, even a Harvard Law graduate and one of the most powerful women in the world deserves a guilty pleasure.
This book may help answer the question as to whether or not Mrs. Obama will run for president one day. Recap the possibility with BET Breaks, below:
