Watch your neck, girlfriendOn Oprah's part, I mean. She's really seemed very full of herself in the last few years (being the richest woman in show business can do that to a person, I guess) but since Obama has risen to power, she's been almost insufferably smug - like she singlehandedly got him elected. It's a crock of shit. And I'm not the only person who feels that way.
Oprah's (cough, cough, wink, wink) BFF Gayle King interviewed Mrs. President for O recently at the White House. The First Lady was peeved when Oprah swept in like visiting royalty - ahead of Gayle - and presented her large, fleshy cheek for a greeting kiss. Michelle wasn't having any of that, and stepped back and stuck out her hand for a handshake, as proper protocol would dictate.
The First Lady has been irked by Oprah's self-grandeur since the days of the campaign trail. She's not fooled by Oprah's phony chumminess, either. She saw the way Oprah tried to flirt with her husband in front of the cameras. Throughout the interview Michelle made it a point to speak directly with Gayle and ignore her Royal Winfreyness, making her blood boil. Wish I could've been there to see it.
