Rumor Control: Did Michelle Obama Ban Kerry Washington From The White House?


Kerry Washington’s new role on ABC’s Scandal, may have hit too close to home for First Lady, Michelle Obama. According to the rumor-mill, Mrs. Obama has decided to ban the actress from the White House because she got ‘too flirty’ with the President. 

According to an article in the National Enquirer, Mrs Obama, 48, planned to keep the actress at arm’s length – despite Miss Washington’s honorary post on the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities. The First Lady was said to have a ‘watch list’ of women that were to be kept away from her 50-year-old husband – and Ms. Washington was one of them.

According to the National Enquirer:

“Kerry loves high powered men and she will flirt with anyone – including the president – and the first lady knows that,” disclosed an insider.

“It’s no secret among her staff how Michelle feels. Kerry is NOT to be trusted.

“Michelle doesn’t take any chances where her marriage is concerned. If she feels another woman is crossing a boundary, she’s out!”

Kerry, 35, shot to the top of 48-year-old Michelle’s “watch list” after the actress was appointed to the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities, an honorary post that could bring her into personal contact with the commander-in- chief.

Meanwhile, Kerry has made no secret of her admiration for the president. She once told “The New York Times”: “I want to do whatever I can to make democracy sexy.”

While the story does hold some obvious truths and interesting coincidences – the claim that Mrs. Obama added Kerry to the ‘watch list’ is completely false, according to White House officials.

An White House official told MailOnline that the story is ‘100 per cent false’. Kerry Washington, 35, is a keen Democrat and campaigned for Obama in the 2008 president race.

Well there you go. Of course, MSDTV will keep you posted. Stay Tuned.
