Frankly I wouldn’t find this surprising if it really happened, but you can decide for yourself:

Michelle Obama thinks being America’s First Lady is ‘hell’, Carla Bruni reveals today in a wildly indiscreet new book.

Miss Bruni reveals that Mrs Obama replied when asked about her position as the U.S. president’s wife: ‘Don’t ask! It’s hell. I can’t stand it!’

Details of the private conversation, which took place at the White House during an official visit by Nicolas Sarkozy last March, emerged in Carla And The Ambitious, a book written in collaboration with Miss Bruni.

Dems might say that the quote is being taken out of context, and that if FLOTUS did actually say that, she was exaggerating and being funny.

Eh, I don’t know — do these look like a couple of women who joke around a lot together?


Update: White House and French Embassy deny the claim — international incident avoided.

    Let’s hope neither her highness or we peons have to suffer beyond 2012.

    Personally, I`d bet FLOTUS said it and feels it ! Afterall neither her nor her husband`s baloons are flying well !!

    re, the pic.: Meanchelle`s expression speaks volumes !! V.-1 & -2 , Hate and Jealousy.

    Wouldn`t you love to know what brought on that less than "lady-like" lear ?

    Right after Mean-shell told Carla that being FLOTUS is hell Carla replied "So I guess you are not so proud to be an American anymore, hey, and by the way our press reads lips and loose lips – sink ships. By the way, your husband is an ass – as in – as big as yours." Now smile Mean-shell.

    You know, she's right. It must be hell having to jet all over the nation from one vacation to another. Oh, and let's not forget that grueling trip to Spain. Not to mention her vegetable garden, probably cared for by the White House gardeners, and her anti-obesity campaign she brings up from time to time.
