First Lady Michelle Obama Surprises White House Tour Visitors

Posted by: Audiegrl

One year ago on January 20th, after President Obama was inaugurated, he and the First Lady decided to surprise visitors who were on White House tours to reinforce the message of the White House being the People’s House. Mrs. Obama is marking the first year by continuing this tradition – taking some time to greet visitors of the People’s House. Even first dog Bo gets in on the act. 🙂

Michelle Obama Wax Figure Unveiled on The Wendy Williams Show

Posted by: Audiegrl

ChicagoNow~“How you doin,” Williams uttered her trademark into a new wax figure of the first lady. Viewers of “The Wendy Williams Show” got the first look at the figure, which will debut at Madame Tussauds New York on Tuesday as part of its Black History Month events.

The Obama figure is dressed in a replica of her inauguration gown, Williams showed. She then rattled off some fun facts about the statue, including that its hair is human and individually inserted into the scalp. The hair is washed regularly.

The statues are almost true-to-size. “They take three to six months to create,” she said. “They make them all about 2 percent bigger than the actual bodies of the people that they do because wax shrinks.”
