Paula Deen Says Michelle Obama Can Really Eat 

Michael N. Todaro/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- When celebrity chef Paula Deen met with Michelle Obama, she was surprised at just how much food the first lady could put away.

Mrs. Obama has become a driving force in preaching healthy eating for others, but according to the newspaper, Deen recalls, she packed away anything but healthy food -- both on the air and during the commercials. “She probably ate more than any other guest I've ever had on the show!" said Deen, sometimes called the "Queen of Butter" for her decidedly non-dietetic fare.

According to the Food Network star, after complimenting Michelle on her slim figure, she showed her how to fry shrimp for a TV show in September 2008, just ahead the presidential election, reports The Daily Mail.

On the Obama family, Paula remarked, "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.”

The comments came in an interview that Deen, known for her love of traditionally fattening down-home  cooking, gave to promote her latest book Paula Deen's Southern Cooking Bible.
