Paula Deen says, Michelle Obama likes fried food

When Paula Deen and Michelle Obama got together it became clear, the two women had a lot in common when it came to food.

"Well, 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."
Deen also said, "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."

Speak for yourself Paula, yes we can.

"She eats poorly," that seems to be the consensus by those who have seen her in action.

At the White House Dossier, Michelle’s has been reported to overeat and overeat and serve unhealthy food to guests again and again, while simultaneously telling others how to eat.
