The media just can’t get enough of Michelle Rhee. Not only must we know middle-of-the-night Blackberry habits, but we also want to know about her love life and how she likes her manicures. (She prefers to get straight to the polishing than dally with the massage portion of the hand-care routine, so says a close aide. No word on her favorite nail polish color.) Channeling O.K. Magazine, Marc Fisher dishes the scoop, even interviewing Mama and Papa Rhee, who live in Colorado, about their progeny. Next, her biceps will get named by a New York Times’ columnist (or her calves--Michelle loves heels) and her date nights recorded by the paparazzi.
