Carla Bruni Denies Michelle Obama “Life Is Hell” Quote
September 20, 2010
France (ChattahBox Entertainment News) – After a book about Carla Bruni-Sarkozy claimed that Michelle Obama, the American First Lady, said that life as the wife of the president was ‘hell’, the wife of France’s leader came out to say it wasn’t true.
During a UN summit this week, CNN managed to get a quick word from the model-turned-political wife. When asked if she could confirm the quote, Bruni said, “Of course Michelle Obama never said such a thing.”
It isn’t a surprise that the quote may have been fabricated. The unauthorized biography called ‘Carla and the Ambitious’ has made a number of claims.
The quote from Obama was a strange one, given the fact that the leaders of the U.S. and France are far from close, and have seemed to have a slightly strained and uncomfortable relationship. The admission would have been out of place in such a casual context.
The White House has also denied the claims, and the two authors, Michael Darmon and Yves Derai, have refused to comment on the book, or any of the content.
When asked if she would pursue legal action, Bruni said that she is a Democrat and believes that people can write or say whatever they like.
