Michelle reveals boyfriends she had before Obama, details of her first kiss ever

Published

on

In her new memoir, Becoming, Michelle Obama not only talks about her public role and her family but also delves into her love life revealing, for instance, the first time she had a kiss as a teenager.

“I arranged my first kiss, in fact, over the phone,” she writes.

“It was with a boy named Ronnell. Ronnell didn’t go to my school or live in my immediate neighbourhood, but he sang in the Chicago Children’s Choir.”

At the time, Michelle would observe how other girls her age were changing due to the onset of adolescence and how the rush of hormones made her accompany her friends to watch boys play. To increase her chances of being noticed, she would often tag one of her popular friends along.

“Being around boys, I was slowly coming to realise, was fun,” she writes in the book that comes out this week and for which she and her husband, former US President Barack Obama, were paid a joint advance fee of $65 million (Sh6.5 billion).

In her gap year, she worked in a bookbindery, where she met another prospective boyfriend, David.

And when it was time for her to join Princeton University, David and her father drove her all the way to the campus.

However, she says that even by then, she had made up her mind to move on.

“David was easy-going and also more of an adult than any boyfriend I’d had. He sat on the couch and watched ball games with my father. He joked around with Craig and made polite conversations with my mom… We fooled around and smoked pot in his car…”

MEETING OBAMA

Once in Princeton, a new vista opened up for Michelle and, in time, she met another boyfriend, Kevin, a football player but it did not work out.

He eventually became a doctor and married a college mate of Michelle’s.

She, too, graduated with a law degree and joined a prestigious law firm in Chicago, Sidley & Austin, and that was where one of the senior partners asked her if she would be willing to mentor one of the young lawyers, known as summer associates, that the company was grooming.

“Of course you will,” she writes. “You have yet to understand the altering force of a simple yes … Next to your name is another name, that of some hotshot law student who’s busy climbing his own ladder. Like you, he’s black and from Harvard. Other than that, you know nothing — just the name, and it’s an odd one.”

And that is how she met Barack Obama, the son of a Kenyan student.

Obama would later become the 44th US President before handing over power to Donald Trump.

Michelle has made it clear that there is no love lost between her and President Trump.

Here’s the sad story behind angry woman and white cat memes

Published

on

The meme of a woman yelling and crying angrily and the savage responses from a white cat has since taken over the internet.

The meme came to life in May this year after a Twitter user posted it after combining the two pictures, which had previously been used as memes separately.

The woman in the meme, is Reality TV star Taylor Armstrong, who was captured on the reality TV show The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 2, (Malibu beach from hell) which aired in December 2011.

Taylor is captured having a meltdown with Camille Grammer, as then fellow housewife Kyle Richards attempted to calm her down.

ESTRANGED HUSBAND

The incident happened after her friends claimed that she had lied about having an estranged husband, Russell Armstrong.

Her husband had just committed suicide and Taylor went into a nervous breakdown. Her hospital records, which had been kept private for some time, have proved otherwise after it was discovered she had had a reconstructive eye surgery to correct an injury that she sustained from abuse by Russell.

Responding to the meme circulation, Taylor said on Twitter: “Thank you, that is my past and I have moved on and am in a really healthy happy marriage. It doesn’t seem like my life any longer. I work with domestic violence shelters and support victims. Its (sic) ok to laugh at the images that have been created…”

She later told oprahmag.com: “During the screaming scene, I was truly terrified for my life and my safety. When I look back now, that life seems like someone else’s. I have healed and grown so much stronger since that moment and am in such a happy place with my husband and daughter. I never imagined of all my TV moments, that would be the one to become a ‘meme’ sensation.”

Meanwhile, the cat in the picture is called Smudge who lives in Ottawa with his owner Miranda Stillabower. Smudge has earned a following of 640k on Instagram. lord

He won many hearts through Tumblr in 2018 after Miranda posted him looking unimpressed after a plate of vegetables was placed in front of him.

Since then, the meme has been turned into many things, paintings, cosplay and a Japanese Facebook page even turned it into a video.

Published

on

Kenyan media personality Janet Mbugua is over the moon after US wrestler John Cena followed her on Twitter.

The mother of two could not hide her excitement and shared a screenshot on her page, accompanying the post with the words of singer Sho Madjozi.

Haibo! John Cena has followed me! (Inserts Sho Madjozi energy): Chi chi chi chi…chi, chi, chi Happy new week, folks!” wrote Janet Mbugua.

Focusing on Africa

This comes a few days after Cena surprised Sho Madjozi while performing on a live TV show.

Cena surprised Madjozi in California as she performed her hit single “John Cena” on ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show’. According to Sho, she wrote the song after a boy she liked failed to direct any attention her way.

John Cena has been reportedly paying attention to the African continent ever since the South African songbird dropped the ‘John Cena’ hit which she sang in fluent Swahili.

Marriage on the rocks?

Janet Mbugua, on the other hand recently commented on rumours that her marriage is on the verge of collapse. The 35-year old stated that “It has been a few years…” and admitted that the institution of marriage is a challenging one.

“I always tell those who keep on saying: ‘Oh my God, I can’t wait to start a family…’ I say two things: ‘Take your time, and make sure that you are ready; because you could be good at being in love, but you do not really need to be married.”

She advised Kenyans to take their time before settling down.

“Trying to balance family, work and expectations is really hard…I love my family, I love where I am. And, I know, the moment you say it is not easy, I can predict what the blog posts would say… But, it is fine, they would talk about it” she said.

Could the wedding bells be ringing for Kenyan volleyball star Janet Wanja?

The Kenya Pipeline setter on Tuesday took to Facebook and announced her engagement to Italian boyfriend Giulio Calauti.

This piece of news was received with excitement and congratulatory notes from her friends on Facebook with some asking when to expect her in a wedding gown.

VISIT HIS FAMILY

Wanja has been dating Giulio for the past year or so and at some point, the Italian invited the Malkia Striker to Italy to visit his family.

And perhaps to show her commitment, Wanja appears to be learning some Italian going by the recent birthday message she posted to her better half.

“I thank God for blessing you yet another year to celebrate. My prayer is He keeps watching over you as He Always Has. Grazie mio cuore (thank you my heart) for always being there for me and loving me in waits I could never have imagined,” wrote Wanja.

The development provides a triple celebration for Wanja who recently helped the national women volleyball team win the African Games title in Morocco.

She also landed a lucrative endorsement deal with a betting company believed to be worth millions of shillings.
