I love, love, love the First Lady! If I can ever be accused of being biased it woud be fair to say that about me and Mrs. Obama. So I was delighted to see a pair of high profile appearances from Mrs. O this weekend.
Her first stop was the Jimmy Fallon show which can always be counted on for a good laugh. There she dispelled the idea of running for office in 2016, but joked she had her eye on being the next host of The Tonight Show. Jokes or not I’m sure many people would love to see her host a show of her own. *Paging Oprah*
Michelle and Jimmy created another cute video to promote her “Let’s Move” campaign showing off “Mom dances”. I bet Mrs. O is waaaay more hip than she lets on, but it was still very entertaining. Jimmy was also quite convincing in his mom drag. Can you imagine any other First Lady dancing alongside a man in drag on national tv? Pretty cool!
Then on Sunday in what seemed like a marathon Academy Awards (seriously could it have dragged on any longer? Ugh), the big pay off came in the Best Picture category. Of course it is naturally the most anticipated award of the night, but the real surprise was when Jack Nicholson introduced the First Lady live from the White House! After Jack recapped the nominees Michelle read off the winner and congratulated Argo. Now I already admitted I’m a lil biased but I can’t think of it getting any bigger than the First Lady of the United States announcing you as the winner (well unless the President himself announces it).
Congratulations to all the Oscar winners (Poor Jennifer Lawrence for falling) and special shout out to nominee Quvenzhane Wallis. Stay fabulous darling and don’t let the negativity overshadow your tremendous accomplishments and talents.
Yesterday the rumor mill was buzzing that Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’s Mimi Faust and K. Michelle were in a backstage altercation at K. Michelle’s BB Kings New York concert.
Supposedly Mimi Faust was upset that K. Michelle said she believes Mimi’s new boyfriend Niko is on the “down low” during a Power 105 Breakfast Club radio interview. Rumor has it that Mimi and K exchanged words about K’s comments which ended with K. Michelle slapping Mimi in the face. Given K. Michelle’s admitted temper issues that wasn’t a stretch to believe. Of course Mediatakeout had to take the rumor a step further and claim that Mimi was rushed to the hospital due to a ruptured ear drum. Ok now that is a stretch to believe.
Considering that both K. Michelle and Mimi don’t let much slide I figured it was only a matter of time before the matter was addressed. Today Mimi and K. Michelle released dueling statements about what really went down.
Here is an excerpt from Mimi’s PR statement
Ms. Faust is currently unharmed and never went to the hospital to be treated for a busted eardrum. The incident started in the dressing room where K. Michelle simply hit Ms. Faust with flowers after seeming a little irritated with questions about earlier statements made in a prior interview.
Mimi added that K. Michelle’s response to issues is always “violent”. Kind of hard to argue with her there.
K. Michelle had this to say on Twitter:
You should not have brought your skinny ass 2my show talking crazy 2me. U got popped. U can’t get mad cuz I think ur boyfriend is down low.
Perhaps she “popped” Mimi with flowers or she could have slapped her like the rumor mill suggested. Either way, I’m calling out K. Michelle for Unsportsmanlike Conduct. There are dozens of ways to handle a situation where someone is talking crazy that don’t need to involve violence. Also, even if she is privy to knowledge about Mimi’s boyfriend Niko’s sexuality it isn’t her business to go on the radio and discuss it. Damn near every black man being accused of being gay is getting played out anyway, be more creative in 2013. Based on what I know I’m not blowing the whistle on Mimi but I suggest she grows thicker skin about what people say about her boyfriend.
