The five co-hosts of ‘The Real' — Adrienne Bailon, Tamar Braxton, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai, and Tamera Mowry-Housley — traveled to Washington, D.C., this week to interview First Lady Michelle Obama about the “Better Make Room” movement.
“Better Make Room” is a public awareness campaign designed to celebrate education and inspire students to “make room” for college or other post-high school educational and training programs. “Better Make Room” supports the First Lady’s “Reach Higher” initiative, which is an effort to inspire every student in America to take charge of their future by continuing their education beyond high school.
During the discussion, Love asked Mrs. Obama who got better grades in high school, her or the President. The First Lady revealed she was better, no question, before jokingly calling President Obama a "bum" as a teen. Watch!
“We were honored and excited to bring our show to Washington, D.C., to interview First Lady Michelle Obama,” said "The Real" Executive Producer Rachel Miskowiec. “The ‘Better Make Room’ campaign empowers students to pursue a 'better' tomorrow by taking charge of their future, which is exactly the kind of thing our hosts and viewers are passionate about.”
The discussion with Mrs. Obama was conducted in the East Room of the White House, and is scheduled to air on “The Real” on Tuesday, January 26 (please check local listings).
