Cheryl Hines is curbing her enthusiasm when it comes to the idea of First Lady fashion.
While a First Lady’s wardrobe is typically carefully curated and designed, Hines, 58, says if she becomes First Lady it will be a more casual affair.
Hines appeared on SiriusXM’s Literally With Rob Lowe, discussing the possibility of her presidential candidate husband, Robert F. Kennedy Jr, winning the election.
The wife of the actress-turned-politician, known for playing Larry David’s wife on Curb Your Enthusiasm, has been married to the independent candidate since 2014.
The actress, 58, spoke about the idea of becoming First Lady if her husband, presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr, wins the election.
Cheryl Hines has at times distanced herself from her husband’s more controversial opinions.
‘I’m being honest with you, from time to time, I think what really happens in that White House, you know what I mean? Is there anyone walking around in slippers or a bathrobe? Because that’s what I usually wear when I’m home,” Hines joked to Lowe.
‘I just don’t know what that would be like, you know what I mean?’
Lowe admitted that his knowledge of the White House residence comes from his time in the West Wing, speculating whether he would have the freedom to make himself something simple like a sandwich; or if someone else insisted on doing it for you.
‘I think you can. Clearly you can, but there’s probably a valet there,’ Lowe mused.
Hines joked: ‘And then you say, no, no, I’ll do it, because I know how much mayonnaise.’
‘And they say, just tell me how much mayonnaise. And then when you think, you know what, forget it.’
Many of America’s First Ladies, such as Jackie Kennedy and Michelle Obama, have become style icons while their husbands served as leaders of the free world.
However, Hines joked that he might not do the same, exchanging ideas with Lowe about how he would handle the position.
“What if I became First Lady and every time I left my room, I had a different outfit and it was designer from head to toe, and I said, hello, I’m here,” she joked?
“When I wake up in the morning, you know, I’ll sleep in my ratty pajamas, but when I go out into the main living room, yeah, I’ll put on my Armani silk pajamas and prance around.”
Hines says her husband should have Secret Service protection, given what happened to his father and uncle.

Hines has spoken about the possibility of being First Lady in the past, admitting that it has never been her “dream.”
She and the politician often gushed online, but Cheryl made it clear in 2022 after RFK Jr. came under heavy criticism for making a series of anti-vaccine comments that they didn’t agree on everything.
At the time, she wanted everyone to know that her husband’s “views are not a reflection of her own” and that her thoughts on “current issues” often “differ.”
In a previous interview with The Hollywood Reporter last year, she shared her thoughts on being First Lady and revealed that she was horrified that her husband’s high-profile political role hadn’t come with Secret Service protection.
“You would think that case, plus the fact that his father and uncle were murdered, would qualify him,” he said.
RFK Jr is the son of Robert F. Kennedy, who served as attorney general and senator before being shot to death in 1968, and nephew of President John F. Kennedy, who was assassinated in 1963.
In October 2023, a mentally ill man was arrested at the couple’s Los Angeles home after scaling the fence and reaching the second floor.
