The Obamas Host A Governor's Dinner

While the Hollywood celebs were at the Oscars last night, political celebs were at President and First Lady Obama's first official White House State dinner.  And I'm loving the First Lady's look--strapless dark sequins gown and several layers of pearls.  And Mr. President's looking quite dapper himself. More pics when you read the rest... The First Couple reportedly walked in to the dinner to welcome their entertainment--Earth, Wind, and Fire.  Yes, they brought them to the White House.  Loves it. Other YBF political folks at the event: Governor Deval Patrick of Massachusetts and his wife were there.  He's the first black governor that state has elected by the way. Governor Paterson of NY and his wife were also there. Dinnertime with Gov. Schwarzenegger. Loving Mrs. O's makeup too. Social Secretary Desiree Rogers (who planned the dinner) looked fab. And so did President O.'s right hand woman Valerie Jarrett. A toast to the party. Swoon. And right before the big dinner, the First Lady and her Executive White House chef opened the White House kitchen to culinary students from the D.C. area. Nice. Nice.

Hey, give the sistas a break!

Hey, give the sistas a break! Barack is fine as wine; however, you should not want to destroy the love these two people demonstrate to one another. Let's keep in mind that as long as they stay together, we as a people benefit. Michelle is in his soul, someplace we shall never be. I make it my business to look for him everyday because he is sooooo refreshing and so is Michelle. We have not seen this kind of black love on the big screen and so it is to be held highly and admirable. It's called RESPECT!

[quote comment="433697"]So, I'm going to have a discussion with my hair stylist because I needs that Oprah/Michelle O. bounce in my hair. When I sneeze, I want my hair to bounce dammit![/quote] To get that bounce tell your stylist to roller set your hair & let it dry, then blow it out with a round brush and go through it with a flat iron to finish smoothing out. Wrap it at night to keep the bounce as well & don't cake the hair with a lot of product just some oil or polisher for some shine. I got that bounce all the time :D even now when I did my hair myself (gotta save $$$)

I'm praying that our President has too much common sense and integrity to make some mistake as slipping up with one of his staff members and I'm praying tha he will continue to be a great example of black man for us all.[/quote] I believe that he will. He has a fabulous wife and a fabulous family. You can see that they both take care of each other. He ain't goin nowhere. Michelle will make sure of that lol[/quote] Two words...HULA HOOP. Obama is always talking about how good of a hula hooper his wife Michelle is. If you know like I know if you good at hula hooping and belly dancing you're usually also a master at other more late night activities. Barack aint messing that up. He said Michelle got that ill nana. That's why he always be cheesing when he with her. lol

The First Lady looked

The First Lady looked absolutely BEAUTIFUL. I usually don't like her style much, but I like it this time. Hats off to whomever made this possible. Everyone looked good at this event really. Desiree Rogers is always on point from what I've seen. This is 1 bad chick that always be working it. Work it out Desiree!! I wanna be like u when I get old, Ma. Desiree is Fiyah y'all!!!!!!!! BTW, First Lady Michelle, watch out for Arnold, he likes the "chocalate" if u know what I mean.

[quote comment="433738"]I believe Michelle told Essence I think, or People...one of them, back around Valentines Day that she doesn't worry about infidelity because if someone comes between her and Barack, they didn't have much to begin with. She is definitely a strong black woman. I admire her beauty and her positivity. Loves all of it![/quote] She sure did!...She is absolutely amazing. Simply Gorgeous! I can't wait to meet them both!

Oh please! Desiree Rogers is

Oh please! Desiree Rogers is older than the president and she isn't that attractive - just look at that huge nose of hers- Valerie Jarrett is actually the pretty one, but she too is older than the president and is like a big sister to both him and Michelle. Barack Obama loves his wife Michelle and nothing or nobody is coming between these two; besides President Obama knows that Michelle is really what sealed the deal for him - lets not get it twisted.

And the makeup is BEAT!!! Barack looks incredibly dashing. Fab looks all around. Not a lacefront in sight.

I know this is a gossip blog, but this is the lives of real people and we should NOT be "anticipating" ill will into their lives simply because we are waiting for the next juicy story. Our people are better than this. Pray for the Obamas, and all his staff that they serve as the Lord wills them and perform an awesome job.

I have said it before and I

I have said it before and I will say it again. Michele just exudes class, I am a fan of very educated women who still look like ladies. Usually when people think of educated women they also think of Tom boys who never dress up. Get it Michelle you inspire women all over. Obama I see you!

Earth, Wind and Fire!!!

Earth, Wind and Fire!!! Thats what I'm talking about. With the President and First Lady being from Chicago, I wonder if they step. I'm willing to bet they do. You can't be from the southside of Chicago and not step. The First Lady looks lovely. And I hate myself for having a teenie weenie crush on the President.

No one is perfect, but I think he's better than that. Besides, if that were the case, trust me, the Republicans would have uncovered that from the get go. Think before you speak.
