For days, people have been wondering who shouted out “Haay, Michelle” to the First Lady at last week’s Black History Month celebration.
The shout-out came during a packed reception in the East Room of the White House and no one was able to identify the bold voice. Well, the secret was revealed Tuesday by The Real co-host Tamar Braxton, who said it was her sister, Traci.
“Lord have mercy, my sister, Traci, done made a little Black History of her own,” she said before Tuesday’s big reveal, which actually came to light because of their mom, Evelyn, who figured it out.
“I was like for real? She’s like for real,” Tamar said recalling the conversation with her mom. “And then somebody played it for me. I said, ‘Oh my God, that’s my sister!’”
“We know it is Black History Month when you hear somebody say, ‘Haay, Michelle! Girl, you look so good!’” Obama said, as the First Lady laughed.
Traci said on the show that she is certain the Commander-in-Chief and his wife would have shut her down immediately if they’d had a problem. Instead, the president dealt with her off-stage.
“Really? Really, Traci? Really?” he said during a warm greeting after his speech.
“I was like, ‘Ah, he knows my name,’” she said.
