First Lady Michelle Obama cajoled Jay Leno into eating healthy foods for the first time in ... oh, ever during her visit to the Tonight Show on NBC Tuesday.

Promoting her “Let’s Move!” campaign to get kids excited about fitness and healthy diets, Michelle brought out some food to make an example out of Jay.

As both Jay and Michelle joked repeatedly about his eating habits, Leno sampled apples, sweet potato fries and a pizza made with eggplant, peppers and zucchini.

Could've used some sausage, but even Jay conceded it wasn't bad.

Michelle Obama encouraged Jay to dip his apple in honey made from beehives in the White House garden: “It will help it go down easier,” she said.

“'White House honey'? That just sounds bad,” Leno replied, adding, “You know, with a different president that could mean a whole different thing.”

In California to promote her initiative and attend a pair of fundraising events, Michelle also talked about her daughters and her husband's reelection campaign.

She even praised Mitt Romney singing at a recent event. Classy woman.

Jerry Seinfeld is so excited about the new Acura NSX that he will stop at nothing to acquire the very first one ... at least in a Super Bowl ad airing Sunday night.

How far will Jerry go for the first new NSX, the debut of which is expected in the coming years? How does Jay Leno fit into this quest for automotive greatness?

Watch an extended version of the ad below ...

Jay Leno is facing more than criticism over his recent joke at Mitt Romney's expense. A Bakersfield, Calif., resident is suing him over the Sikh comedic bit.

The punchline of the joke was that Romney, the very wealthy businessman and GOP presidential candidate, spends his summers in a solid gold palace.

Jay pulled up a photo of India's Harmandir Sahib, the Golden Temple of Amritsar, an extremely sacred building in the eyes of the Sikh people.

There's been a lot of outrage among Sikhs, but one man, Dr. Randeep Dhillon took his religious fervor one step further, filing a libel lawsuit against Leno.

Dhillon claims Jay is responsible for encouraging hatred and ridicule of his religion and is suing for general and punitive damages. The rationale there?

According to Randeep, Leno's Mitt Romney joke "falsely portrays the holiest place in the religion instead as a vacation resort owned by a non-Sikh."

LOL. Not to encourage Randeep suing us as well, but come on dog.

Mitt Romney's wealth and detachment - perceived or legitimate - from the common voter was certainly evident in Saturday's South Carolina primary results.

It also became fodder for late night comedians, or even Jay Leno for that matter. Sorry. Anyway, furing his monologue on Thursday, Jay got in on the act.

The Tonight Show host presented a clip from The Insider that included photos of the homes of presidential hopefuls Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul and Romney.

Only instead of revealing Romney's real summer home, the bit replaced the original shot with one of the Golden Temple of Amristar in India. Check it out:

The joke didn't go over very well with several Sikhs, who view the site as a sacred place. Overseas Indian Affairs Minister Vayalar Ravi told reporters:

"[Leno's attempt] at humor is quite unfortunate and quite objectionable," pointing out that "freedom does not mean hurting the sentiments of others."

What's more, a petition organized by members of the U.S. Sikh community claims this isn't the first time Leno has made such derogatory remarks.

"Jay Leno's racist comments need to be stopped right here," reads the petition.

No word on whether Romney's actual house on Lake Winnipesaukee is also made of gold, or how it stacks up with his other 75 residences.

Barack Obama returned to the Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night for his first appearance on the program since March 2009, when he became the first sitting Commander-in-Chief to visit the NBC late night staple.

The President discussed everything from the death of Moammar Gadhafi and withdrawal of troops from Iraq, to Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, the Occupy Wall Street Movement, potential Republican challengers and his Halloween plans.

First, though, he made fun of his own Teleprompter use in the opening:

Barack's second stint on The Tonight Show as a bit less joyous than his first, and contained a lot of serious subject matter, but also some lighter moments.

Watch the full Obama interview, broken into three parts, below:

President Barack Obama will return The Tonight Show with Jay Leno next week. It will be his first appearance on the NBC show since March of 2009.

The Prez became the first sitting Commander-in-Chief to appear on the program with that appearance, marked by his ill-timed Special Olympics joke.

Making fun of handicapped people aside, those were the good days for Barack, whose popularity has declined substantially in the 30 months since.

Obama and Leno

Can a return to the Tonight Show help Barack recapture the magic?

According to White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer, Obama will be on the West Coast next week raising money for his reelection bid.

In the midst of that swing, he will stop by the talk show Tuesday in an effort boost support from the public for his controversial new jobs bill.

Excited to see the President on late night TV again? Indifferent? Turned off? Regardless, we'll post the interview for you as soon as it airs.

We know Bristol Palin is promoting her book and all, but at some point, when it comes to Levi Johnston pitching a tent, even we reach a saturation point.

Last night, Jay Leno became the latest to hear the first-hand account. Sarah's little girl went on to discuss her new chin, which she likened to Jay's.

Obvious as Bristol Palin's plastic surgery is, she says it was done to correct a medical condition. She also shed light on her upcoming reality show.

She's supposedly dating Kyle Massey, who she'll be living with (along with his brother Chris and her son Tripp) on the show. Sounds ... exciting?

With fellow guest Don Rickles serving as a one-man peanut gallery, and Leno being uncharacteristically funny in bashing Levi, it's actually amusing:

Very little about Kim Kardashian is real.

Her televised fights are scripted, her engagement was filmed by a camera crew, her Tweets and Facebook posts are paid for by sponsors.

But it's safe to assume Kris Humphries would not have purchased a fake ring for his fiance... right? That's what Jay Leno wanted to find out last night, as he actually set Kim's 20.5 carat rock on fire as a test. (Real diamonds don't burn; a cubic zirconia will catch flame.)

What happened? Did Kim make you believe she wasn't in on this stunt? Watch the video below.

In case it wasn't already clear, things are really heating up between Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber.

Sources already confirm that the former has met the latter's family. And, during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno yesterday, Selena says the reverse has also taken place.

Did Justin make a good impression on her mother? Yes, "he passed the test," Gomez said.

Watch the video below to see Selena briefly dish on Bieber, while also going on about driving in Los Angeles and her new movie, Monte Carlo.

Well, now we've pretty much seen everything.

With a heartfelt mea culpa on The Tonight Show, Lindsay Lohan got a standing ovation from the audience. She did it by admitting what we all know, but she never seems to acknowledge - that Lindsay is to blame for Lindsay's jail sentence.

“I feel like I’ve let a lot of my fans down by putting myself in situations when I was young and not thinking clearly,” Lohan told Jay Leno Tuesday.

When "she was young" was like two months ago in the case of her alleged necklace heist, but whatever. Details. One topic she wouldn't discuss last night, however?

Her dad. “I plead the Fifth on that,” the troubled star said, borrowing a term from the legal system she's gotten to know intimately well over the last year or so.
