Michelle Obama's "hell" comment was addressed by the White House. In a book an allegation that Michelle Obama told Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, the French First lady that she hated White House living and that being First Lady was "hell" has surfaced. Of course, the news is taking off in the blogosphere because this has the hint of a scandal.
That being said, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy was also the recipient of a controversial comment by a government owned Iranian newspaper. The paper claimed that the French first lady should be stoned for supporting an Iranian adulteress.
The White House denies that the comments were made. The French government also denies that the comment was made as well.
The event leading up to the comment was that Bruni came to the White House with her husband last March. When asking the First Lady how she liked her new role, a book says she was told 'Don't ask! It's hell. I can't stand it"
The book was written by journalists, and was presumably penned in collaboration with Carla Bruni-Sarkozy. The French first lady is distancing herself from the book, but CBS journalists in Paris say that the book's authors are sticking by the quote.
