Two of the nearly 800 attendees at an Obama fundraiser held Monday at the House of Blues in Los Angeles, Richards and Umansky couldn't contain their excitement over meeting the Commander-in-Chief.

"Off to meet our President @BarackObama #surrealtweet #whatdoiwear #hopeidontsaysomethingstupid," Richards Tweeted on her way to the event Monday evening.

"I'm going to ask our President if he can do anything about my favorite lip gloss that was discontinued," she later posted in jest. "[Or] maybe I will give him my suggestions for the deficit...JUST PRINT MORE MONEY."

Once the couple arrived at the event, L.A. real estate agent Usmansky had the chance to chat with Obama. "Great conversation with @BarackObama. I hear [First Lady] Michelle watches #Rhobh," he Tweeted, along with a photo.

Bravo exec Andy Cohen later recounted the pair's meeting with Obama on his late night show Watch What Happens Live. When asked by the president which TV show she was on, Richards played coy. "I'm embarrassed to tell you, but Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," Cohen quote Richards as saying.

Obama's prompt reply? "I don't watch that but my wife does."
