*Not even Los Angeles’ mayor was in on the secret that one of the nation’s First Daughters was in his town – interning for the CBS series “Extant.”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Malia Obama’s internship was intended to be top secret. Since early summer, she has been interning as a P.A. on Halle Berry’s sci-fi series. The crew was sworn to secrecy and the White House even intervened at one point to suppress photos of her at Venice’s Gjelina.
At a Grammy Museum event July 16, L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti told The Hollywood Reporter he spoke with Michelle Obama at another event that day. When the first lady said that Malia (who turned 16 while working on the show) had a “great experience,” the mayor told her that he hadn’t even known Malia was in town until very recently. “Good,” Michelle said, “you weren’t supposed to.”
If the paparazzi are still looking for the eldest Obama daughter, they’ll have to find her in D.C. Garcetti said the teen returned home with her mom after Michelle wrapped up her L.A. visit.
