Obama Not Thrilled When Kids Watch Kardashians
The Kardashians seem to be everywhere, but don’t expect to spot them often on the White House TVs. First Lady Michelle Obama admits in an interview with iVillage that her husband isn’t too pleased when the couple’s daughters try to turn on E!’s first family.
As is the case with many parents, the First Lady and President Obama have TV viewing limits for daughters Sasha and Malia – no Web or channel surfing during the week, unless it’s related to homework. That rule is let up a little bit on the weekends, when they’re allowed to tune in to the tube.
While Mrs. Obama doesn’t specify if there are any shows strictly off-limits, she does say that “Barack really thinks some of the Kardashians – when they watch that stuff – he doesn’t like that as much.”
But, she continues, “I sort of feel like if we’re talking about it, and I’m more concerned with how they take it in – what did you learn when you watched that. And if they’re learning the right lessons, like, that was crazy, then I’m like, OK.”
It doesn’t sound like the Obamas have anything to worry about – Mrs. Obama says that Malia, 13, and Sasha, 10, are “terrific girls. They’re poised and they’re kind and they’re curious.”
Like with any mother, she knowingly jokes, “I am just hoping that I don’t mess them up.”
