Michelle Obama to Appear on Paula's Party

Michelle Obama to Appear on Paula's Party

Possible first-lady-to-be Michelle Obama is scheduled to make an appearance on Food Network's Paula's Party. On the primetime television series, Southern belle Paula Deen speaks with Obama about the first meal — seafood gumbo complete with lobster, shrimp, and mussels — she cooked for Barack.

After the conversation Deen invites Obama into her kitchen where she teaches her how to make fried shrimp and Creole french fries. The episode airs on Saturday, Sept. 20 at 7 p.m. My tivo is already set; I'm excited to see how Michelle moves in the kitchen.

How about you? Will you watch?

All I want to know is, did Paula invite anyone from the other side? Fair is fair.

I don't think being "anti-muslim" is such a good thing, either, but this isn't a Citizen post, so I'll leave it at that :)

There IS a such thing as CHRISTIAN arabs.

Sure I'll watch, out of curiosity more than anything! I love Paula, she is my kind of girl, all that butter! It will be interesting to see Michelle Obama in a natural setting! By the way, the Obama's aren't muslim. Just because their name sounds muslim, doesn't mean that they are. One of my best friends is from Jordan and is strongly anti-muslim and a devoted Christian.

I am so disappointed with Paula's choice of guest. The Obama's are racists and anti-Americans and I can't believe she would support this. You have lost a fan.

Well, here goes that liberal media craze again ... shoving THEIR "political favs" into the faces of TV watchers. First it's Oprah and now it's Ms. Deen. I liked Ms. Deen but now truly wonder about her reasoning. I think Ms. Obama is a jaded individual at heart and it shows in her character. Ms. Deen, I'm sadly surprised at your choice of guests. ...not on my viewing list any longer.

I can't believe that Paula is having Michelle Obama on her show. I love Paula and always watch her shows but after doing this I don't think I'll watch or subscribe to her magazine any more. It is her right to have who she wants but if she has Michelle then she should have Sarah. Michelle Obama gives off the wrong vibs. I am a democrat but will in no way vote for a musulim. We really have no candidate that deserves the office of President of the USA.

Nope, I like Paula but not Mrs. Obama. I don't like politicians that say they'll give people things that they never had to give in the first place.

If nothing else, Creole fries are enough to hook me. Yum!

I used to like Paula enough until she went all HOLLYWOOD. Ok, she's from Georgia, (I think) and they do say a lot of "y'all," but she has gone completely OVERBOARD with that!!! She uses it so much in her commercials, you'd think she took out a trademark on that word. Can you say, "overcooked?"

Hi Ya'll. I love Paula. I would just never use that much mayo. My neighbor looks a lot like Paula and sounds a lot like her. I'll be watching the show.

She cooked gumbo? I like her already.

i'm not really a fan of paula or her show so i don't think that having michelle on it is going to make me any more inclined to check it out. i think that it's a nice thing though - but not for me.
