Michelle Obama Kerry Washington Scandal

Our First Lady is a gladiator!

During a recent interview with “On Air” host Ryan Seacrest, Michelle Obama admitted to binge-watching episodes of our favorite political drama “Scandal” during her birthday getaway last month.

“I hadn’t watched it until this past vacation – we went to Hawaii so I had a long flight – so I watched all the seasons,” she said. “I never watched it [before].”

Mrs. Obama went on to praise leading actress Kerry Washington for her work as Olivia Pope. “I love Kerry Washington,” she gushed. “She is amazing, so it makes the show fun. It really does. It was fun to watch.”

When asked about her milestone birthday, the stunning 50-year-old said she feels better than ever. “You’re more confident, you know yourself more, you’re not concerned about what other people think,” she said of growing older. “And if you’ve taken care of your health, many times you can be in the best shape you’ve been in…You watch your kids grow up and I know, my girls, they’re starting to become real people with opinions and it’s just so much fun to talk to them now.”

As far as Valentine’s Day plans, the FLOTUS said she and President Obama will keep it low-key this year.

“This year, again, I’ve had this big birthday celebration — my husband really celebrated me so well — he did a great job. I had a great couple of weeks, so I think we’re going to low-key it for Valentine’s Day,” she revealed. “We have been married for 21 years and he never forgets a Valentine’s Day, an anniversary, a birthday. He’s really good at that kind of stuff.”
