According to a new authorized biography of France's First Lady Carla Bruni, American First Lady Michelle Obama thinks life in the White House is "hell." And honestly, can you blame her?
The book, penned by French journalists Michael Darmon and Yves Derai, reports that that during her visit to the White House in March "she asked the first lady about her post…"Don't ask," Obama said, according to Bruni. 'It's hell. I can't stand it.'"
According to Politico the White House has refused to comment. But really, considering the sort of year the Obamas have had press-wise, I imagine "hell" is a rather tame way of phrasing it.
Update: A French Embassy spokesman is now claiming the words attributed to Carla Bruni are false. From CBS:
