Michelle Obama has begun to drop some extremely fun chunks of her life as the former First Lady gets candid while on tour for her new book, ‘Becoming’. And in one of the recent interviews, she revealed how she once gave a Secret Service Agent quite an eyeful while suffering from a wardrobe malfunction of epic proportions. Michelle recently appeared on the popular podcast ‘Two Dope Queens’ hosted by comedians Phoebe Robinson and Jessica Williams on November 15, and the three ladies felt right at home with Michelle’s wicked sense of humor complementing theirs.
“You were constantly surrounded by people. so did you ever have, like, any sort of, like, embarrassing sort of thing that happened, and like, the Secret Service was there, and you both sort of, like, clocked it, like, ‘We’re not gonna talk about it but we both saw this happened,’” Phoebe asked Michelle.
The 54-year-old replied: ‘Oh god, yeah. There’s a ton of stuff. You know, definitely tripping, falling, stumbling,” she began, and then narrated what she considers to be one of the most embarrassing moments of her life, i.e., the time she accidentally flashed an agent at a rally in North Carolina.
“You know one time I was doing a big rally in, um, I think it was Asheville, college campus. And my lead agent was behind me, ‘cause he’s always behind me… And my skirt blew up. The wind just blew it up and luckily there wasn’t, like, a back stand. But he was there and he stepped right over, and I was like, thanks! I was like woo! It’s one of those flouncy little cute skirts, and then we had to rethink that.”
“That was another outfit learning moment!” the former FLOTUS laughed. “If it’s windy, don’t wear flouncy things. Wear a pencil skirt, or wear some pants. So we started checking the weather, and wind,” Michelle continued. “But I think I spent eight years going, you know, if you see me giving a speech at a big thing, at a convention, what I’m thinking about as I’m walking to the podium is, ‘Don’t fall, don’t trip, don’t trip, don’t fall.’”
Previously, the former FLOTUS had entertained her audience by speaking about how well she bonded with Queen Elizabeth during her visit to the Buckingham Palace in an official capacity. Speaking about the backlash she received after putting her arm around Queen Elizabeth during the former first couple’s state visit to Britain, Michelle said that she didn’t believe that the monarch had any problem with the gesture. “At some point toward the end of the party, I turned my head to find that Queen Elizabeth had surfaced at my elbow, the two of us suddenly alone together in the otherwise crowded room,” she wrote in her book. “She was wearing a pair of pristine white gloves and appeared just as fresh as she’d been hours earlier when we first met. She smiled up at me.”
“If I hadn’t done the proper thing at Buckingham Palace, I had at least done the human thing. I daresay that the Queen was okay with it, too, because when I touched her, she only pulled closer, resting a gloved hand lightly on the small of my back,” Michelle wrote in her book.
