PAULA DEEN SERVES FIRST LADY MICHELLE OBAMA AN ORDER OF SOUTHERN FRIED SHADE
While the rest of the world is sweating it out in the race to maintain a healthy lifestyle Paula Dean is waiting at the finish line with a stick of butter in each hand doing her signature grandma chuckle.
“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.”
I think we have all witnessed passive aggressive shade in our lives (and by lives I mean Facebook walls) to realize that “she probably ate more than any other guest I’ve ever had on the show — she kept eating even during commercials” and “little gardens” is spot on.
