“The Real” co-hosts trekked it from Burank, California to Washington, D.C. for a one-on-one with none other than the First Lady of The United States Michelle Obama!

Talk show hosts Adrienne Bailon, Tamar Braxton, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry Housley got the chance to sit down with FLOTUS inside the White House to chop it up about Mrs. Obama’s Reach Higher initiative and the Better Make Room campaign.

The Reach Higher initiative is FLOTUS’ effort to inspire every student in America to take charge of their future by completing their education past high school. 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. So, the ladies of “The Real” asked her all about it, plus more.

The 27th Annual Producers Guild Of America Awards went down at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Century City, California over the weekend. And it brought out hottie Michael B. Jordan looking extra dapper in an all black tailored suit.

During her acceptance speech, Shonda held nothing back saying:

"I'm going to be totally honest with you, I completely deserve this. I have against the odds, courageously pioneered the art of writing for people of color as if they were human beings. I’ve bravely gone around just casting parts for actors who were the best ones. I fearlessly faced down ABC when they completely agreed with me that Olivia Pope should be black. And I raised my sword heroically and then put it down again when Paul Lee never fought me about any of my storytelling choices.”

Tell 'em Shonda!

Check out what else she said about the Oscars' diversity drama below:

CREED star Michael B. Jordan presented the winner for the most-awaited Best Picture award.

There was a bit of a mix-up after Michael announced the winner. Reportedly, no one in the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza ballroom understood him the first time he announced the winner. (Or was everyone blinded by his fineness?)

He then read it again and the producers for the film The Big Short came up and accepted the award. Oops!
