In her final interview as First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama will sit down with none other than Oprah Winfrey to reflect on her eight years spent in the White House with her family. The interview will be conducted in the Obamas' private residence within 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
The special taping will be called First Lady Michelle Obama Says Farewell to the White House--An Oprah Winfrey Special--and, yes, we're crying as we write this. The interview will be produced in partnership by CBS and OWN, and will first air on CBS December 19 at 8 PM EST, and again on OWN December 21st at 9 PM EST.
Speculation over what the Obamas' post-presidency life will entail has included rumors of multi-million dollar book deals for both Barack and Michelle, with Raphael Sagalyn, of the ICM/Sagalyn Literary Agency, telling The New York Times"I think Michelle Obama has the opportunity to sell the most valuable first lady memoir in history."
Obama ranked 13th on this year's Forbes list of The World's Most Powerful Women, above Winfrey's ranking of 20th.
