Kim Kardashian's reality series is off-limits to Obama's kids?
Kim Kardashian has plenty on her plate, slamming rumors that her marriage is already on the rocks, but one family that won't be "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" are the Obamas.
In a recent interview with iVillage, first lady Michelle Obama said that Barack tried to make the popular reality series off limits for their daughters Malia, 13, and Sasha, 10.
"Barack really thinks some of the Kardashians -- when they watch that stuff -- he doesn't like that as much," Michelle Obama told iVillage recently. "but 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, okay."
The Kardashian family opened their home to E! Entertainment cameras for the first time in 2007. The reality series has since branched out into several spin-offs including "Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami," "Kourtney & Kim Take New York" and "Khloe & Lamar."
Kim Kardashian and basketball player Kris Humphries, who wed on August 20 at a picturesque $20-million estate in Montecito have been denying that there is any trouble in their marriage. Their newlywed lives will be shown in the upcoming season of "Kim & Kourtney Take New York." The Obamas have had several interactions with celebrities over the past few months. Lady Gaga recently urged Obama to make bullying illegal and Jennifer Hudson sung to the president on his 50th birthday in August. Obama also recently named Colombian singer Shakira a member of his Advisory Commission on Educational Excellence for Hispanics.
Despite the Obama family's high-profile existence, Michelle Obama has managed to keep her daughter's lives relatively normal.
"They're terrific girls, they're poised and they're kind and they're curious," Michelle continued. "And like any mother, I am just hoping that I don't mess them up."
She is also careful not to spoil her daughters, giving them chores to do even in the White House.
"They have to make their beds, they have to clean up their rooms, they have to," she told the news outlet. "Sasha has started doing the laundry, Malia was supposed to be doing it but (Sasha) is really into laundry."
On October 21, President Obama announced that the United States troops would pull out of Iraq by the end of the year.
