While a veil-wearing Michelle Obama had no problem meeting the Pope during an official visit last year, French paper Le Canard Enchaîné claims that His Holiness said that the former supermodel was "not welcome" during her husband Nicolas Sarkozy's 30-minute meeting with him earlier this month.
"The Holy See want(ed) to avoid photos showing Carla and the Pope together on the front pages next to older but saucier photos (of Carla)," the paper reported.
Though she did meet the Pontiff when he came to Paris in 2008, she has yet to accompany President Sarkozy, who was raised a Catholic, on any trips to the Vatican, according to the Telegraph.

Meanwhile, it's not all bad news for the leggy brunette. She was recently named to the Forbes 100 Most Powerful Women in the World list.
