The First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, also became the unofficial First Lady of Fashion when husband Barack became president in January.

In a new interview with Women’s Health, she reveals not only why she takes her own health (not just universal health care) seriously, but also her style.

“My father had multiple sclerosis, so I never took health for granted, because I saw a father that at the prime of his life was struck with an illness that completely changed everything in his life,” Michelle Obama told the publication.

She says she values both diet and exercise, even if she has a soft spot for fast food. As a child, she said, going to McDonald's with her family was a treat.

The First Lady maintains her figure by eating in moderation.

“We couldn’t afford to go out to dinner, so [it] was a rare treat," Michelle said. "We had theater class on Saturdays, and [afterward] if Dad turned left we were going to McDonald’s, and if he turned right we were going home."

"We’d always go, “Go left, Dad! Go left!”

He rarely did, and she says that was a good lesson.

“Those values - even though they were the result of economic circumstances - were really good, and created some healthy boundaries about food.”

Not that she doesn’t love the occasional diet-breaker.

“I do love a good burger and fries. French fries are my favorite food in the whole world. If I could, I’d eat them at every meal - but I can’t," she says.

"My whole thing is moderation. If I make good, healthy choices for me and for the family most of the time, having what I love once in a while won’t hurt.”

The Obamas eat dinner as a family almost every night, Michelle says, noting that they make time for that whenever they are able, even if things are busy.

As far as Michelle Obama's hairstyles and fashion choices, the First Lady says.

“For me fashion is fun, it’s supposed to help you feel good about yourself."

"That’s how women should focus: what makes them feel comfortable and beautiful. I wear what I love. Sometimes people like it, sometimes they don’t."

"I’m fine with that.”

There wasn't exactly any love lost between Jon and Kate Gosselin to begin with (to put it mildly), but the estranged spouses' war of words was kicked into another gear after Jon's latest outburst on Good Morning America this morning.

He's said she treated him like a lame fish, and was beaten down and abused by his grating spouse - but he never referred to her as "someone I despise."

Until today.

It's a far cry from a few weeks ago, when he said he still loved Kate Gosselin as his children's mother. Now he can't even tolerate the thought of her.

GMA interviewer Chris Cuomo even questioned Gosselin's choice of words and said he should "be careful," but Jon reiterated that he does despise Kate.

The reason? Filling their 10 years of marriage with anger and abuse, and not even projecting a truthful representation of the couple to the media.

IR8: Jon Gosselin despises Kate ... even harder than you think.

Becoming increasingly agitated as he was shown contrasting celebrity gossip magazines featuring Kate and himself, Jon basically called Kate out for what he considers a huge act, for degrading their marriage, shoplifting his manhood and more.

Kate Gosselin didn't just steal Jon's pride and 10 years of his life – she also swiped his wedding ring, he claims, while still wearing hers "for show."

He put down the ring one day, saying "I'm done," only to have it disappear a few days later, with Kate the only person who could have taken it.

Jon says he's cried "more in the last eight months" than in his entire life, due to pent up frustration with Kate and having "no voice in the media."

At least he's remedying the second part of that.

Watch Jon go off on Kate for yourself ...

We've been hearing the rumors.

Beginning in late July, people began speculating that George Clooney was seeing Elisabetta Canalis nude. This was pretty much established as (lucky) fact.

Well, now he's gone public with his new flame, putting any doubts to rest.

Well, going public is a stretch. They keep a low profile, but aren't hiding.

Here's George Clooney with his (bandaged) arm around her in Italy:

The day before the premiere of his movie, Men Who Stare at Goats, the couple made an arrival at the Venice Film Festival in the famed European city.

Italian papers gushed over the pair they're calling "the next Brangelina."

That's a tad premature, as there's no good nickname potential (Canalooney? Gebetta?) and they haven't created many kids and become the subject of constant cheating rumors, but it's an apt comparison in terms of beauty.

In any case, Clooney and the woman better known to local media as "La Canalis" or simply "Eli" have been inseparable the past three weeks.

Clooney was introduced to his new love interest in Rome, but apparently "carried a torch for Eli" even while still dating now-ex Sarah Larson.

Larson became the first girlfriend to accompany the perpetual bachelor and ladies' man to the Oscars. Will Elisabetta Canalis be the next?!

Katie Price is used to giving quickies to Peter Andre.

That said, it was pretty much par for the course that their divorce, which was made official today by London's High Court, took a mere 42 seconds to complete.

Their four-year marriage was deemed "irretrievably broken down due to both parties' unreasonable behavior." Somehow he got lumped in with Katie there.

The district judge said, "Given that I have to exercise discretion in determining what to permit to disclose to the press, I find it difficult to do that without the parties and their representatives to express their views to the court."

He said details of quickie divorce can be made public.

"I think the press are entitled to know the basis on which the decree was pronounced, and each was on the basis of unreasonable behavior," he concluded.

Peter Andre is hereby free to pursue a new, less insane wife.

Both Katie Price and Peter Andre sued each other for divorce, and they are taking extra precautions to keep their divorce papers a secret from the media.

We'll see how long until the tawdry, accusatory details of their split get out - and what information was included in them for all the gossip-mad world to see.

Something about her banging Alex Reid, for sure.

Peter Andre and Katie Price are able to remarry in six weeks when the decree absolute is granted. We hope she can hold off that long, difficult as it seems.

Following recent rumors that Prince William and Kate Middleton are planning to marry (sometime before 2012) come reports that Prince Harry is preparing to reunite with longtime girlfriend, Chelsy Davy, with whom he broke up early this year.

Wouldn't that be something?

The hot pair have met on a number of occasions over the summer both in London and at the house Harry shares with William in Shropshire, England.

"Harry is still besotted with her and she can't get him out of her head, even though she's been seeing other guys," a friend of Prince Harry said.

"I don't think that he and [Chelsy Davy] have fully resolved some of the problems between them yet but we all think they'll give it one last shot."

The Daily Mail reports that the two are exchanging messages on Facebook. The pair will meet up this weekend at Prince Harry's 25th birthday party.

Prince Harry is training to be a helicopter pilot with the Army Air Corps and South African-born Davy, who dated him for years, was believed to be concerned that he wasn't putting enough commitment into their relationship.

Before breaking up in January 2009, the two were together at:

  • The Concert for Diana together in July 2007.
  • The wedding of Peter Phillips, his cousin, to Autumn Kelly, in May 2008.
  • Prince Charles's 60th birthday party for family and friends at Highgrove, his Gloucestershire home, late last year.
  • Various polo matches of Harry's.

In a 2005 interview, Prince Harry said: "I would love to tell everyone how amazing she is but once I start talking about that, I have left myself open."

It sounds like he's still open ... to rekindling the passion with his former flame. You know it's just a matter of time before they're an official item.

There have been rumors, but now we have proof.

Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo have rekindled their love! Cue the obligatory OK! Magazine cover featuring Jessica Simpson and her "revenge diet!"

The pair were spotted at McFadden's Restaurant and Saloon in New York City over the weekend. Here's a very cute picture of the rekindled couple ...

Looks like Nick and 'Nessa are giving it another go.

"They seemed very laid back and were very friendly to the staff and fellow patrons," an eyewitness said, noting that the two called it an early night.

Vanessa and Nick, who split in June, clearly couldn't keep away from each other for long. They have been spotted in NYC and LA in recent weeks.

Here's hoping these two stay together and happy!

Here's something you won't read in any The Young and the Restless spoilers - Michelle Stafford is expecting her first child this December, via a surrogate!

Stafford, 43, has won two Emmys on the CBS daytime drama. She relied on a surrogate mother after struggling through fertility treatments and surgeries.

"After a three-year journey through hell, I'm elated, ecstatic and lucky to be able to announce I'm expecting my own child via surrogate," Stafford said.

She also confirms she's expecting a girl.

Michelle Stafford, who is single, first tried artificial insemination, then vitro fertilization. She looked into adopting after deciding to start her own family.

"I never wavered in my desire to be a mother," she says. "But I did waiver on aspects of the process. It was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life."

"This entire process has been very, very difficult to do on my own," Stafford says, "and has made me realize the importance and reason for a partner."

"Dating men and telling them I'm expecting in December is a little different," she adds. "I need to find someone who wants the same things as I do."

Congratulations to the expectant mom!

According to new reports, Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer no longer have the distinction of True Blood stars who get naked on and off set to themselves.

Evan Rachel Wood and Alexander Skarsgard are more than co-stars, if you believe the gossip queen known as Perez Hilton, who cites a "reliable" source.

His intel comes from the set of Straw Dogs, a movie being filmed right now in Shreveport, La., and which stars Kate Bosworth and Alexander Skarsgard.

The source claims that Evan Rachel Wood flew in Friday to be with Skarsgard, supposedly, and he was overheard talking about hanging out with her.

There are even pictures of the two allegedly together in Louisiana.

Alexander Skarsgard and Evan Rachel Wood may be dating.

Supposedly, A-Skarz and ERW have been hooking up ever since they met on the set of True Blood, the HBO series gaining in popularity by the week.

What do you think of these two together?

Hot? Not? Couldn't care less as long as Alexander Skarsgard is shirtless? Marilyn Manson is an idiot? All of the above? Comment on the potential pair below.

Said Kristen Stewart recently about the Twilight sequel:

Smiling!

“There’s a bit more action in this movie. The werewolves are introduced, and you have the character of Jacob [Taylor Lautner]. The way it all pans out, it’s quite tragic, really.”

It's also quite beautiful, of course, because Stewart and Robert Pattinson are involved. Here's a romantic look at the pair in character:

We've also uncovered a new image of Nikki Reed from New Moon. Follow this article's jump to check her out in the role of Rosalie Hale.

Hey! Wait! What about me! I was pregnant recently too! Hello!

What inspires pregnant celebs to volunteer every piece of information they can muster, we have no idea. But Ashlee Simpson-Wentz is clearly jealous of Kendra Wilkinson and Kourtney Kardashian getting attention from being knocked up.

Why else would she offer this insight no one cares about?

Making the media rounds for her role on Melrose Place, Ashlee stopped by The Rachel Ray Show (her interview airs September 15), where she said getting impregnated with the spawn of Pete Wentz didn’t affect her physical prowess.

At. All. If you know what we mean (we don't). She said:

“I could do the splits when I was nine months pregnant. I could put my leg over my head still. I used to be a ballerina,” the sister of Jessica Simpson said.

Why a nine-months-pregnant woman is even attempting splits, we have no idea. Nor do we really want to know, to be perfectly honest. TMI, Ash. TMI.

What a cute, harmless human being with the brainpower of an infant. And that Bronx Mowgli Wentz is pretty cute in his own right, now that we think about it.
