President Barack Obama doesn't want his daughters keeping up with the Kardashians, but reality TV's royal family isn't offended!

First Lady Michelle Obama told iVillage that Barack, 50, doesn't like daughters Sasha, 10, and Malia, 13, watching Kim, Kourtney and Khloe on the boob tube. But a source close to the Kardashians tells Us Weekly they "are flattered" the Obamas watch their show!

Michelle, 47, told iVillage that Barack "doesn't like that as much" when their daughters watch the Kardashians.

"But I sort of feel like if we're talking about it, and I'm more concerned with how they take it in — what did you learn when you watched that," Michelle explained. "And if they're learning the right lessons, like, that was crazy, then I'm like, okay."

The First Lady is making sure her daughters aren't raised like "little princesses," something Kris Jenner and the late Robert Kardashian instilled in their daughters as well.

Khloe, 27, told Babycenter last month about her "Cinderella" upbringing. "When I turned twelve, my mom's housekeeper was not allowed to enter my room," she said. Kris Jenner told her at the time: "You're twelve now. You do all your own laundry. You make your bed."
