MARBELLA - Spain - The $4000 per night Hotel Villa Padierna in which Michelle Obama and her entourage stayed for their vacation have asked the first lady to return the cutlery she allegedly took, a hotel spokesman has said.
Whilst staying at the taxpayer funded $4000 per night room, Michelle Obama allegedly swiped the expensive cutlery from the dining area as well as some ashtrays for her husband, and a few obligatory bathrobes.
"We have a very exclusive line of cutlery that is very expensive, and there were witnesses to the incident. A bell boy was just passing the dining hall when he witnessed Michelle Obama first looking around, and then sticking a number of the valuable pieces into her handbag. She even put some in her daughter's bag and we have reason to believe that she ordered all forty hangers-on in her entourage to bag stuff too. Sheeit, it was like a free-for-all during the L.A. riots. I bet she even tried to take the TV from the room," Ernesto El Burro, senior concierge manager at the hotel told Spain's El Pais newspaper.
