Leslie Jordan is sharing to details of what happened when he performed in front of Michelle Obama and her daughters!
On Monday’s episode of “The Jennifer Hudson Show,” JHud interviewed the actor — who boasts over 5.8 million Instagram followers! — about the time the former First Lady came to see his one-man show in Palm Springs, California.
The “Call Me Kat” star, who toured “44 venues all over the world,” usually said a “dirty word” while telling his story about trying to be a good Christian while growing up gay.
Leslie whispered the word in Jennifer’s ear and told her he was initially hesitant to say it when he saw Michelle and daughters Malia and Sasha in the audience. (Leslie said the Obamas were invited by Valerie Jarrett, the former senior advisor to former President Barack Obama.)
“Oh, I thought, ‘I can’t say that dirty word. I’m not going to say that dirty word,’” Leslie recalled.
