Paula Deen Says The First Lady Sure Can Eat

October 12, 2011

Michelle Obama visited Paula Deen's show back in 2008 and the chef is now saying that the First Lady is quite the eater.

"I did a show with Michelle and I just loved being with her," Deen said. "She probably ate more than any other guest I've ever had on the show. She kept eating even during commercials."

During the segment, Deen taught Obama how to make fried shrimp.

"You know what [the Obamas] favorite foods are -- it's hot wings, you know, those kinds of foods that are not necessarily top-of-the-list healthy foods, so she's no different than the rest of us," Deen said.

Everyone is allowed to indulge every now and then! Deen did say that she supports the First Lady's efforts to help end childhood obesity around the country,

"I was really happy to see her encouraging children, you know, to plant their little gardens."
