Carla Bruni reveals a private conversation with Michelle Obama

The book was written by journalists Michael Darmon and Yves Derai who claim that this was a collaboration with Carla Bruni.

Carla Bruni describes herself as demanding, spoilt, and selfish, says one of the French authors about the French First Lady.

She also gives extraordinary insight into her life as the wife of a leader – and her relationship with some of the most prominent figures in the world, including the American president.

“On the advice of the Obamas,”‘ she says, “We don’t read the papers in the morning any more.”

She does not speak to the American First Lady very often, she adds, but said that she likes her and “could be her friend.”

In response to the explosive claims that Michelle Obama told Carla Bruni that life as in the White House was “hell”, Mrs Obama’s spokesman slapped down the claims and the French Embassy in Washington also released a statement denying that Mrs. Obama ever said those words.

Also, the Elysee Palace has denied that Carla Bruni co-operated with the biography but journalists Michael Darmon and Yves Derai, who wrote the book, claim that this was indeed a collaboration with Ms Bruni.

Moreover, the Embassy claimed Ms Bruni “distances herself completely” from the book but a CBS News radio reporter in Paris wrote on his Twitter feed that the authors are standing by the quote.

White House correspondent Mark Knoller said the pair will not divulge their source, however.

He added: “I could see how living in the WH could be “hell” at times: no privacy, press scrutiny, always on display.”

“Even so, they ALL love it here.”
