They may be the first family of reality TV, but not everyone is interested in “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” Especially…the patriarch of the First Family.
Michelle Obama reveals that her husband isn’t too keen on the couple’s two daughters watching the E! reality show.
“Barack really thinks some of the Kardashian – when they watch that stuff – he doesn’t like that as much,” she said, “but I sort of feel like if we’re talking about it, and I’m more concerned with how they take it in – what did you learn when you watched that. And if they’re learning the right lessons, like, that was crazy, then I’m like, okay.”
The First Lady had been asked about her children’s viewing habits during a roundtable interview with iVillage.com.
She explained that Malia, 13, and Sasha, 10, are not allowed to watch TV or be on the computer (unless it’s for school) during the week but that she and the girls check out some programs together on the weekends … and “The Kardashians” airs on Sunday nights on E!, which she feels play out like precautionary tales.
“They’re terrific girls, they’re poised and they’re kind and they’re curious,” Obama said, adding with a laugh, “And like any mother, I am just hoping that I don’t mess them up.”
