I noticed that Drudge linked to a story describing a "food fight" between "Southern cooking queen" Paula Deen and First Lady Michelle Obama.

Okay, "story" was from the National Enquirer, a cotton candy read, a guilty pleasure.  The gist of the piece is that  Obama is hot that Deen dissed her for not practicing what she preaches.

From the story:

While plugging her new book, “Paula Deen’s Southern Cooking Bible,” the feisty TV chef took a pot shot at Michelle for gorging herself on greasy french fries, fatty hot chicken wings and sug­ary deep-fried Snickers bars!

Exclamation point! Well, this purported cat fight comes at a time when the First Lady is about ready to unveil her book, said to be called "American Grown: How the White House Kitchen Garden Inspires Families, Schools and Communities."

Scheduled to be published in April by Crown Publishers, the First Lady has indicated all proceeds from the book will go to an as-yet-unnamed charity. The Produce for Better Health Foundation, perhaps?

We don't care what you say, Paula. We in the fresh produce industry love the First Lady. We all fall off the wagon from time to time.
