Michelle Obama to appear on Food Network’s ‘Restaurant: Impossible’

First Lady Michelle Obama continues her march across the TV landscape with an appearance on “Restaurant: Impossible” in June, the Food Network announced Tuesday.

Chef Robert Irvine, who goes around fixing up restaurants across the country on the show, will get a special request from Michelle Obama. The first lady will challenge him to rebuild Horton’s Kids, a children’s community center in Washington that serves meals after school.

The show will take a tour of the building, according to the announcement, and then: “The pressure is on as Robert has only two days to create a dining room, build a spacious kitchen, and plant a garden for Horton’s Kids to grow their own fruits and vegetables.”

At the end, Michelle Obama will appear to give her stamp of approval, the network added. The episode airs June 13.

The first lady has been on multiple shows lately to promote her initiatives — including health and fitness, along with military family support — such as Nickelodeon’s “iCarly,” NBC’s “The Biggest Loser,” and multiple talk shows. She appeared in January 2010 on the Food Network, when she stopped by “Iron Chef America.”
