Celeb Pulse: Michelle Obama’s Pre-Dawn Workouts Are Impressive

FLOTUS Hits the Gym Before POTUS. Well, color me impressed. First Lady Michelle Obama recently talked about her workout routine, which includes getting up at (the ungodly hour of) 4:30 or 5 a.m. every day to hit the White House gym, where she watches SportsCenter while she sweats. Hubby/President Barack Obama joins her (eventually) to get in his workout, too. [The Cut]

Rosie O’Donnell Has Heart Attack, Writes Poem About It. Yes, Rosie O’Donnell suffered a heart attack last week after helping an “enormous woman” (her words, not mine) get out of her car in a parking lot last week. And then she took to her blog to write a poem about the episode. My favorite lyric: “i took some bayer aspirin / thank god / saved by a tv commercial.” [Fox News]

LC Rides a Bike. Lauren Conrad! Where’s your helmet?! [People.com]

Matthew McConaughey Drops Serious Weight to Play HIV Patient. Five ounces—that’s how much McConaughey is reportedly eating to slim down for a role in the upcoming film The Dallas Buyer’s Club. He’s playing an HIV-positive patient and wants his body to look the part. As for workouts, he’s sticking to the cardio machines only. [Us Weekly]

Mayim Bialik and Marc Summers in Car Accidents. But not together. Bialik, the former Blossom star who’s now on The Big Bang Theory, was in a car wreck last week in which she injured her right thumb. Summers wasn’t quite so lucky: His car accident, which happened here in Philly in a taxi cab over the weekend, “wiped out” the left side of his face, leaving him with a face full of titanium and screws. His doctor says he’ll make a full recovery. [People.com]
