Michelle Obama judged year’s most fascinating

New York, December 10 — Outdoing all, Michelle Obama has topped Barbara Walters list of ’10 Most Fascinating People of 2009′, a choice she revealed during the annual ABC special on Dec.9.

The first lady, whose hubby topped the list last year, surpassed all, which included Michael Jackson’s three children, Sarah Palin, Brett Favre, Adam Lambert, Glenn Beck, Kate Gosselin, Tyler Perry, Jenny Sanford and Lady Gaga.

Obama had a busy 2009
During a candid interview aired Wednesday to mark the ‘10 Most Fascinating People’ holiday special, Obama discussed that she had a busy year, settling in a new home, getting a new pet, visiting countries with her commander-in-chief hubby, planting garden and starting a mentoring program.

The First Lady went on to discuss the way she relax, given some spare time. Talking like an average mom, she stated that it is the perfect time to be alone, watching food and fashion with her dog Bo by her side.

“If I can get an hour of them once a week, it feels like heaven,” stated Obama.

First Lady’s fitness secret revealed
Obama has repeatedly being called as possessing the best arms among all celebrities. Divulging the reason behind this she stated that her gym act can be traced back 11 years, when her first daughter Malia was born.

“I really started right after I had Malia, our oldest, and some of that was, you know, in all honesty it was a little sort of revenge because I’m married to a man who has worked out all of his life.”

She added that Malia use to wake up for four o’ clock feeding and she use to get up as she was the first one to hear and her hubby would be asleep.

“And I thought, ‘I’m up, I might as well go to the gym. And if I get to the gym, then he’ll have to wake up and do that feeding.”

“So you know, if there’s anything that I can attribute these arms to, it’s probably just determination,” added the First Lady.

Viewers will get to see more of Obama Dec. 13 “Christmas at the White House” special with Oprah Winfrey on ABC at 10 p.m. EST.
