Michelle Obama Makes Her 'Letterman' Debut

March 20, 2012 08:15 am CDT 

Michelle Obama sits down for her first Late Show With David Letterman appearance on Monday (March 19) in NYC.

During her interview, the 48-year-old First Lady chatted about President Obama, her Joining Forces initiative, and her late father, who had multiple sclerosis.

"I never knew him to be able to walk, but my dad worked so hard and he loved us so much, and I think from him I learned just absolute, complete unconditional love, the notion that kids really don't need anything but to know that their parents adore them," Michelle shared.

At one point, she got a bit emotional, telling Dave, "Don't make me cry … this isn't Oprah! It's supposed to be Letterman. What's up? Where are the laughs?"

After the taping, Michelle left the Ed Sullivan Theater and headed to a fundraiser dinner, which was attended by celebs including Beyonce.
