Michelle Obama: “My Proudest Achievement As First Lady Is My Daughters”

During the recent United States Summit On Women held at the White House, First Lady Michelle Obama told Oprah Winfrey that her proudest achievement as First Lady is Sasha and Malia Obama.  

Mrs. Obama admits that she was anxious about raising her daughters in the White House and worried if she would be able to provide them with a “sense of normalcy.” Yet, now with one daughter graduated from high school and the other with a few more years to go, she feels more confident that she did a good job, the Huffington Post noted.

“And we just went to Malia’s high school graduation, and we’re watching Sasha move her way through high school. And I am very proud of those two and how they’ve managed this situation and how they have continued to be themselves, regular little girls just trying to figure it out,” the First Lady told Oprah.

“And as all mothers do, you breathe that sigh of relief that you didn’t mess up your kids.  And every day I cross my fingers and hope that I’m doing right by them, and I’m providing them with a good foundation so that they can be great people,” she added.

Yes, First Lady you did an amazing job with your children!

From Mugshot To Headshot: Prison Bae is Back With New Modeling Photos

Well, well, well. Jeremy Meeks, aka Prison Bae, is back on Instagram (and out of the penitentiary) reminding us why women lost their minds over his 2014 mugshot. The newly-minted model posted up some recent modeling pics, and he looks utterly delicious. Yes, ladies, he still has it.

Welp! Apparently he is still on house arrest.

And here is the headshots of all headshots.

Meeks, who got out of prison in March, is signed with White Cross Management and is clearly serious about his burgeoning modeling career. It’s been awhile since his he was arrested, but we hope the 32-year-old Stockton, California, native can stay on the right side of the law and live out his dreams.

Good luck boo!

Oh My! Black Publications Ebony, Jet and The Grio All Get Sold

Ebony and Jet will no longer be under the guise of the Johnson Family. According the Chicago Tribune, after 71 years of being family-owned, the iconic Black publications were sold to the Clear View Group, a private equity firm in Austin, Texas, for an undisclosed amount. Under this deal, Clear View Group will also take on the publishing group’s debt, which has accumulated over the years with dwindling revenue sales.

Yet, not all power is lost. Johnson will keep Fashion Fair Cosmetics line and their historic Ebony photo archives, which is still up for sale and Linda Johnson Rice, chairman of Johnson Publishing and daughter of founder John Johnson, will serve as chairman emeritus on the board of the new company, the newspaper noted.

“This is the next chapter in retaining the legacy that my father, John H. Johnson, built to ensure the celebration of African-Americans,” she said in a statement Tuesday.

Ebony and Jet are not the only pubs in Black media that got snatched up. It’s also been reported that actor/producer Byron Allen’s company, Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios, has purchased the once NBC-owned African-American news site The Grio.

“David Wilson and his founding partner Dan Woolsey have done an incredible job these past seven years building The Grio, and we are one thousand percent committed to continue expanding this digital news community’s reach across all global media platforms, including our broadcast television syndication programs, cable television networks, and motion picture division,” Byron Allen, Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Entertainment Studios, said in a statement to TheWrap.
