In her recent appearance on Live! With Kelly and Michael, Michelle Obama got refreshingly candid. The first lady playfully participated in Ripa and new cohost Michael Strahan's lightning round of questions, yet took the interview in a completely different direction when she coyly mentioned a nude President Obama!
When Strahan asked, "For the president, do you prefer boxers of briefs?" he probably didn't expect to hear "none of the above." As the audience shrieked in excitement and/or shock, the first lady giggled and tried to play it off, but the damage was done, and now, we can't seem to stop thinking about it.
We admire MObama's honesty in what could have been a very rehearsed and dull interview. The conversation seemed as if it was heading in that direction when the first lady was initially asked about her favorite White House Room, to which she replied, "The Yellow Oval Room." That's sweet, and we're sure the room is lovely, but its excitement factor pales in comparison to the bombastic "boxers or briefs" question.
The fearless interviewee also had to stop herself when she began listing off her nicknames for Barry, saying, "I'm trying to think of the ones I'm gonna say out loud." Saucy! We already noted that the post of first lady is getting more modern all the time (manicures, anyone?), but this is a whole new level. If you only watch one video today, let this be it. (The Cut)
Watch the cheeky vid below — but this is the clip from the full interview, so if you're just in it for the "Lightning Round," during which said saucy questions occur, tune in around 13:00.
