Michelle Obama Hates Pantyhose And Other Fun Facts has posted 25 "interesting" facts about Michelle Obama by Elizabeth Lightfoot, author of Michelle Obama: First Lady of Hope.

3. Within the family, her nickname is "Miche" (pronounced "Meesh").

7. Even though they were only allowed one hour of television per night, she committed each episode of The Brady Bunch to memory.

8. As a young girl, she practiced playing the piano so much that she had to be told to stop.

21. She hates pantyhose - too "painful."
