Michelle Obama insists her marriage to former President of the U.S. Barack Obama is not on the rocks, even though it is far from perfect.

The former First Lady, who will celebrate her 28th wedding anniversary with Barack next month, spoke candidly about the ups and downs of her marriage with guest Conan O'Brien on the latest installment of The Michelle Obama Podcast.

Michelle, who reportedly suffers from situational depression, seemed to confirm rumors that she and Barack are often at war with each other.

"There were times that I wanted to push Barack out of the window. And I say that because it's like, you've got to know the feelings will be intense. But that doesn't mean you quit," she says.

She also admitted that they sometimes live apart in the 5 mansions they own. "And these periods can last a long time. They can last years."

Michelle, pictured with Barack during happier times, said no marriage is perfect and she went on to share advice for women looking for that perfect man (hint: he doesn't exist).

Mrs. Obama said searching for a suitable life partner is like assembling an all-star basketball team.

"You want LeBron (James). You don't want the guy, third row on the bench, who didn't make the team, but we often don't think about that," she shares.

"What you're supposed to say, is, 'I have married LeBron. My version of LeBron,'" said Michelle.

Some social media users took that as a diss toward women like singer Monica Arnold, who married L.A. Lakers bench warmer Shannon Brown, only to see him get cut by the team a year later. Brown is now a used car salesman in Atlanta.

The 'Becoming' author also stressed the importance of giving yourself time to see the person you're dating "in an array of situations," and insists, "You can't Tinder your way into a long-term relationship."

"There's no magic way to make that happen except getting the basics of finding somebody, being honest about wanting to be with them, to date them seriously, to plan on making a commitment, to date them, seeing where it goes, and then making it happen," she adds.

Kim Kardashian-West says she has made sacrifices and totally compromises for Kanye West as he goes through a midlife change.

Kim stopped by The Real daytime talk show on Wednesday and suggested the rap musician, who turned his back on secular music, is going through a midlife crisis.

Kanye gave up rap music to preach to the unwashed masses during his popular Sunday Service gospel revival tour. Kim told The Real co-hosts that she supports her 42-year-old husband while he embarks on his religious journey. "I obviously want to honor him and what he's feeling. And he's been going through this life change," she said.

The West Coast socialite revealed she fights with her husband over the differences in their approach to raising their children since he became a born-again Christian.

The 39-year-old mother of four said Kanye removed the televisions from their children's bedrooms and he forbid 6-year-old North West from wearing lipstick.

"He's very cautious about what we have in the house. We got rid of TVs in the kids' room and removed makeup from North's room. He's had this epiphany of being this... not that he wasn't an amazing dad, but being more strict as a dad and very forceful on the imagery that's in our household and what they see."

She said she has had to compromise as Kanye becomes "more strict" as a dad. She said they sometimes fight over his excessive demands. Rumor has it that he went through her closets and ordered her to stop dressing in half naked clothing.

"I think, at the end of the day, that's what marriage is. He's going to do things that I don't agree with and I support him and vice versa."

The writing was on the wall when the married father-of-one enjoyed a quick sex romp with a petite blond socialite in a hotel bathroom following the MTV VMAs last year.

Thicke and Patton appeared in numerous paparazzi shots together as a show of unity and to dispute the rumors that their marriage was in trouble.

NY Knicks star Raymond Felton and Ariane Felton

NY Knicks star guard Raymond Felton's LSLH wife, Ariane Raymondo-Felton, is filing for divorce less than 19 months after the couple wed. Felton's game has suffered all season due to his personal problems at home. In fact, his season has been so bad that Coach Woodson is considering trading him.

On their wedding day Felton, 29, was so smitten with Ariane's light skin and long hair that he said, “Beautiful as ever, from the first day I met her. I’m going to take care of her. You have my word. I promise you. No matter what it is, I’m always there for you. I love you.”

The short duration of their marriage indicates that either the Dopamine has faded or she was never in Love with him, and was just biding her time until she catalogued and inventoried all of his assets.
