New reports claimed yesterday that The First Lady Michelle Obama has banned actress Kerry Washington from the White House because she is “too flirty” with President Barack Obama.
Michelle Obama was said to have a “watch list” of women that were to be kept away from her husband – but it’s a story, one White House official claims it totally false.
According to an article in the National Enquirer, Michelle Obama, 48, planned to keep the actress at arm’s length – despite Kerry Washington’s honorary post on the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities.
An White House official said that the story is “100 per cent false”.
Kerry Washington, 35, is a keen Democrat and campaigned for Barack Obama, 50, in the 2008 president race.
There were striking parallels between the explosive claims and Kerry Washington’s latest role in a new ABC series called Scandal.
Kerry Washington plays character Olivia Pope, the tough boss in a crisis management firm, protecting the public images of the Washington political elite.
In the first episode, it was revealed that Olivia Pope had a long-running affair with the fictional American president Fitzgerald Grant.
The National Enquirer also named Scarlett Johansson as another “flirt” who made Michelle Obama’s banned list.
