In a new authorized biography, French First Lady Carla Bruni claims U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama told her that life in the White House is “hell.”
“Don’t ask! It’s hell. I can’t stand it!” Bruni says Michelle Obama told her after being asked about life as the wife of the president during a Sarkozy family visit to the White House in March.
The account, first reported by London’s Daily Mail, appears in a new book “Carla And The Ambitious,” written by French journalists Michael Darmon and Yves Derai in cooperation with Ms. Bruni.
