Michelle Obama - Michelle Obama Cancels Hollywood Fundraiser

America's First Lady Michelle Obama has scrapped a Hollywood fundraiser as the U.S. government shutdown begins a second week.

Government officials announced the shutdown last Tuesday (01Oct13) after the Senate and Congress failed to agree on a budget, leaving 800,000 civic employees on forced unpaid leave, and, because of the hold up, Obama has cancelled her scheduled appearance at the Democratic National Committee fundraiser, which was to be held at the home of Everybody Loves Raymond creator Phil Rosenthal's home, according to Deadline.com.

The original event was initially scheduled for 9 September (13), with President Barack Obama visiting the home of Friends co-creator Marta Kauffman. However, the fundraiser was cancelled due to the possibility of military action in Syria, and his wife agreed to take his place at the re-scheduled event.
