Gilmore Girls Revival Michelle Obama Netflix

Gilmore Girls: Rory Meets FLOTUS Michelle Obama -- Watch Video

Did those days covering the Obama campaign pay off handsomely for Gilmore Girls‘ Rory?Because she and Michelle Obama look pretty cozy on the First Lady’s Snapchat.

“Hey, we’re in the Map Room with…” Obama addresses the camera, which then pans to Alexis Bledel, who adds, “… me!” in a snap posted Wednesday afternoon. “I’m back at the White House!”

Sadly, this doesn’t mean that FLOTUS will be part of the upcoming Netflix revival, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. A rep for the streaming video service tells TVLine, “Michelle Obama is not in Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. It was just something fun Alexis did to support the launch of Michelle’s Snapchat channel and her Let Girls Learn initiative.”

Bummer. Because we were hoping that Obama was holding a box of Pop Tarts in the photo below (scroll to see in full) because they taste like “freedom, rebellion and independence.”

UPDATE: Full FLOTUS-Rory video has been released and is available for your viewing pleasure at the bottom of this page!

      I’m just not a big fan of big celebrity cameos in general. The original show only pulled off the Norman Mailer cameo because of the weirdness of the premise, and because the show hadn’t abused celebrity cameos prior to that.

      • David4 says:

        Yeah… also Norman Mailer isn’t really well known, and people don’t really see him every day, he’s a writer.

        Plus he was just enjoying the inn and the story worked so well.

      So people not wanting celebrities or politicians to be stun-casted in Tv shows is somehow being against a “classy, well-educated, intelligent woman”? You need help.

    Good. I wouldn’t have watched if she were in it.
