Ever wonder what the First Lady is really thinking? Well, two of my favorite women have teamed up to take a crack at exposing what happens when Michelle Obama lets her hair down and keeps it real.

Fresh off the news that Issa Rae inked a deal with Shonda Rhimes to team up for a sitcom, Rae hooked up with Nickelodeon writer Lena Waithe and Benjamin Cory Jones to take viewers behind the secretive walls of the White House and get Mrs. Obama’s view of what’s really going on.

In the new web series project, The Michelle Obama Diaries, we get a glimpse at what the fictional First Lady feels about the debates, her husband’s chances for re-election, and the state of reality TV.

Check it out.

Are you feeling it?

  1. Wasn’t really feeling it either.
    I wish Issa Rae would continue Ratchet Piece Theatre – now, that folks, is some hilarious YouTube.

  2. Issa’s collaborations usually fall flat for me. She has a fresh and quirky voice that her coconspirators usually lack.

  3. I don’t like it! Michelle Obama is an educated, sophisticated, intellectual, poised, and well-spoken woman and to represent her like this does NOTHING to help the greater public have more respect for her. They portrayed her with too much attitude and in a non-classy manner. It’s just as annoying and unhelpful as those videos of Obama impersonators rapping! She does not need a TV show where she “keeps it real” like a moron!!!

    I’m surprised about all the negative comments. I actually liked it. My favorite quote: “Don’t let this fabulous J. Crew ensemble fool you, I’m from the south side of Chicago”
