Skip to comments.Paula Deen: Michelle Obama likes fried food too (and ate more than anyone else on her show)
Posted on 10/11/2011 7:02:38 AM PDT by RummyChick
When Paula Deen met Michelle Obama, it wasn't exactly the queen of butter versus the first lady of garden greens. Deen, known for her delicious not-so-good-for-you recipes like Gooey Butter Cake, said the two women had more in common than you might expect.
"Well, I did a show with Michelle and I just loved being with her," Deen told Yeas & Nays. "She probably ate more than any other guest I've ever had on the show she kept eating even during commercials." Deen taught Obama how to fry shrimp during a TV segment in September before the 2008 presidential election. "You know what their 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. "We love those kinds of foods, we just know that we can't eat them everyday."
The culinary superstar also said she supported the first lady's initiative to get more Americans gardening. "So I love that," she said. "I was really happy to see her encouraging children, you know, to plant their little gardens."
This week, Deen is embarking on a book tour by bus, which will bring her to Washington next month as one of the headliners for the Metropolitan Cooking and Entertaining Show at the Washington Convention Center. (Chefs Jacques Pepin, Giada De Laurentiis and Guy Fiere are also coming). There, she'll be doing some cooking, but also talking about her new book "Paula Deen's Southern Cooking Bible," her biggest cookbook yet. "I do more talking than I do cooking," she explained. "I'm just reconnecting with my friends out there and just sharing some laughs with them."
The Metropolitan Cooking and Entertaining Show will be held Nov. 5 to 6, with tickets costing $24.50 in advance online and $27 at the door.
Mrs. Herman Cain will keep her hands of my dang French Fries, that is all you need to know....
You're so right. RAT bastards 0dumbo & phatass mabelle michelle... I hate em more every day. Both of them are RAT bastard commie pigs. I hope when these two usurpers are thrown out of the WH, that the new president will appoint a special prosecutor to investigate 0dumb0 and finally reveal to the nation exactly who this RAT bastard is. And prosecute the commie pig 0dumb0 if there is deliberate obstruction of justice & fraudulent deceit.
Re; post 26 photo- I NEVER ceased to be amazed by this photo!
Can you belive any president and/or first lady of the United States would dare be photographed with these expressions on their faces?
What an embarrassment these two are!
They have made the U.S. a laughing stock of the entire world.
Paula Deen’s famous English Peas recipe. The comments are a riot.
The best part of this story is that it is on Drudge now.
Michelle will never be that skinny like Sméagol, not in a million years. Just look at Obama’s mother-in-law, in a few years, that’s how MO is going to be like.
“Burros discovers and celebrates that Michelle does eat vegetables. But thats like saying a murderer sometimes commits burglaries. The problem is with Michelles core diet, much of which seems to be fried, sitting on a bone, or infested with sucrose.”
Well what is the name of that program she pushes, Keep Having Movements or something.
It’s one of my favorites too. When I first saw it, my jaw hit the keyboard. It’s all about $$ for those 2 freeloaders.
OMG LMAO!! Good one.
Is Moochie's mom homeless? Is that why she is living in the White Hut with them? Or is she the free babysitter for the jetsetting moron and his beard?
Wow, has that photo ever been lightened. It doesn’t even look like Mooch except the shape. The color is all wrong.
If I was 70 pounds overweight, I wouldn’t have the face to demonstrate saying I was ‘hungry’!!
These people are all tools, for sure.
ROFLOL! There is a joke in there somewhere about how the fried food just follows Mrs Obama.....
LOL those are pretty funny. Usually I see stupid comments like, “I changed this and that and added this because I didn’t have something else. It was horrible!”
