Cheryl Hines dreams of ‘ratty’ pajamas in the White House as she dishes on first lady fashion

Cheryl Hines mocked First Lady fashion during SiriusXM’s “Literally” With Rob Lowe,” claiming that she would take a different approach to it if her husband, RFK Jr., is elected president.

The wardrobe of first ladies has varied all over the place. It’s ranged from the beauty of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Melania Trump to the grace of Nancy Reagan and Laura Bush to the tackiness of Michelle Obama and the couch-induced style of Jill Biden.

Hines, 58, however, seems to prefer a casual approach… at least when not in the public eye if she finds herself residing in the White House.

The “Curb Your Enthusiasm” actress loves her “ratty” PJs and her comfy slippers. But she’s willing to sacrifice and dress up when the cameras roll.

Independent Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is a thorn in the side of the Biden campaign. He’s been far more popular than expected and will most likely drain support from President Biden in the upcoming presidential election. His wife is prepared to settle in if RFK Jr. somehow wins the battle to lead the country.

“I’m being honest with you, once in a while, I think what really goes on in that White House, you know what I mean? Is anybody walking around in slippers, in a bathrobe? Because that is what I’m usually wearing when I’m home,” Hines told Lowe in their interview. “I just, I don’t know how that would go over, you know what I mean?”

Lowe admits that the closest that he came to familiarity with the White House was when he starred in the “West Wing.” He pondered on whether a person could even make a sandwich for themselves or if it would have to be made for them.

“I think you can. You clearly can, but there’s probably like a valet there,” Lowe commented forgetting there is security even when it comes to food in the White House.

“And then you say, no, no, I’ll do it, ’cause I know how much mayonnaise. And they’re like, just tell me how much mayonnaise. And then by the time you’re just like, you know what, forget it,” Hines quipped.

First Lady’s are style icons depending on which side of the political aisle you reside. The Left tends to hate conservative first ladies and the Right tends to detest liberal first ladies. It was not always that way. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was pretty much admired by everyone as was Nancy Reagan. But today’s politics has eviscerated that sentiment.

Hines has her own take.

“What if I became the First Lady and every time I walked out of my room, I was in a different outfit and it was designer head to toe, and I was just like, hello, I’m here,” she kidded.

“When I wake up in the morning, you know, I’ll sleep in my ratty pajamas, but when I walk out into the main living area, yes, I’ll put on my Armani silk pajamas and prance around,” she asserted.

Despite joking about living in the White House, Hines has previously stated that it has never been her “dream,” according to the Daily Mail.

She is fiercely protective of her husband and has repeatedly asked for Secret Service protection for him. The White House has refused over and over to do so despite the Kennedy legacy of assassinations.

“You would think that instance, plus the fact that his father and uncle were both assassinated, would qualify him,” she remarked previously.

“RFK Jr. is the son of Robert F. Kennedy, who served as attorney general and senator before being gunned down in 1968, and the nephew of President John F. Kennedy, who was assassinated in 1963,” the Daily Mail wrote. “In October 2023, a mentally ill man was arrested at the couple’s Los Angeles home after climbing the fence and reaching the second floor.”
