First Lady Michelle Obama will appear on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition as part of her ongoing Joining Forces initiative to help military families.

The White House made the announcement today Monday.

Scary Michelle Obama?

Michelle will tape the episode with a military family, the Marshalls, in Fayetteville, N.C., later this week. The show will feature Barbara Marshall, a 15-year Navy veteran who started a home called "The Steps-N-Stages Jubilee House."

That establishment gives homeless female vets a place to stay and other aid. Hard to think of a better cause for Obama or anyone else to support.

The Extreme Makeover team will be building a new jubilee house in this week's taping. The episode of the ABC show is scheduled to air in October.

This is not Michelle Obama's first stop to promote Joining Forces. Last month, the First Lady taped a special appearance on iCarly on Nickelodeon.

That episode is slated to air in January.

Michelle Obama is coming to iCarly in an episode that will air in January. The First Lady paid a visit to the set of the Nickelodeon show this week.

The guest appearance by Mrs. O is designed to raise awareness to Joining Forces, an initiative that supports and honors American military families.

Executive producer Dan Schneider reportedly wrote the episode specifically for Michelle Obama and Joining Forces. Here she is arriving on the set ...

In the episode, the two BFFs of Carly (Miranda Cosgrove) break some rules to set up a web chat so Carly can speak to her dad serving overseas.

The First Lady, who hears about the girls' efforts, then comes to talk to them about the importance of connecting soldiers with their families.

Sounds like a television event worth watching.

The First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, raised nearly $1 million last night at a fundraiser featuring a number of Hollywood stars.

The A-list party was held in the luxurious modern Westwood, Calif., home of Michael S. Smith - a designer who decorated the White House for the Obamas - and James Costos. Tickets ranged in price from $1,500 to $35,800.

Gorgeous First Lady

Michelle told the crowd of more than 350 guests that her husband, Barack Obama, was even involved in the decorating of their new home.

“Believe it or not, the President has opinions about his drapes,” she said.

After the fundraiser, Mrs. Obama and her two daughters, Malia and Sasha, went to Pizzeria Mozza in L.A.’s Hancock Park neighborhood.

Having hit Ireland yesterday, President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama touched down in London Tuesday for an official state visit to the UK.

On the agenda? Meeting Prince William and Kate Middleton!

Having just returned from their honeymoon in the Seychelles, the newlyweds happily greeted Barack and Michelle Obama in Buckingham Palace. Check it out:

"So last week I caught a fish this big ..."

Britain's golden couple were still glowing from their royal wedding and subsequent retreat off the east coast of Africa as they talked with the First Family.

Chatting with the First Lady, Kate Middleton looked wonderful in a tan, form-fitting dress. William and Barack look engrossed in a talk about ... something!

Upon their arrival at the Palace Tuesday, the Obamas were also greeted by Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip, who gave them a tour of the premises.

As expected, some well-known Fox News "journalists" were all fired up about Common's White House visit this week, during which the rapper read a poem.

As expected, Jon Stewart took them to task in an EPIC rant last night.

In typical Stewart fashion, he shredded their argument by simply using Fox News' own words against it, making the network look like an absolute joke:

You wouldn't assume a Comedy Central show would be more trustworthy than a quote-unquote news channel, but it's fairly obvious that's the case here.

Regardless of whether Common should have been asked to attend Michelle Obama's poetry event, Fox News is just pulling stuff out of its collective arse.

Between their obvious hypocrisy, misquoting of Common and twisting anything to stir up controversy, it was not their best week, even by their low standards.

Amidst controversy from conservatives, Common performed a spoken word piece at the White House in celebration of American poetry and prose last night.

Among other critics, Sarah Palin ripped Common and the Obamas for inviting the rapper/actor, given his former harsh words against former President Bush.

In any event, Common brought Chi-town to the White House as Barack and Michelle Obama hosted a poetry night in the "People's House." Watch him here:

Did he just anoint Barack some kind of king at the end there?

It's unclear, but that was pretty cool. After all of the controversy of the last few days, Common responded by doing what he was invited there for, delivering a beautiful poem. He also addressed the criticism of his visit on Facebook.

“Politics is politics and everyone is entitled to their own opinion, I respect that,” he said. “The one thing that shouldn’t be questioned is my support for the police officers and troops that protect us every day. Peace yall!”

Well put. Read the full text of his poem after the jump:

Former half-term governor and current famous person Sarah Palin slammed Michelle Obama on Twitter today for inviting Common to the White House.

Her beef? Palin and some others aren't thrilled that the rapper and actor promotes healthy diets once rhymed about burning President George W. Bush.

"Oh lovely, White House," tweeted the ex-veep hopeful, making sarcastic reference to a story on Common and Michelle Obama in the Daily Caller.

Palin Common

The conservative website resurrected a Common aimed at Dubya by transcribing lyrics from a 2007 YouTube video of a past performance of "Letter to the Law."

"Seeing a fiend being hung/With that happening, why they messing with Saddam?/Burn a Bush 'cause for peace he no push no button," goes the song.

Common continues: "Killing over oil and grease/no weapons of destruction/How can we follow a leader when this a corrupt one."
