I thought we were just hosting, only to find out we were actually invited to the dinner and I also had to give a welcome speech?”, she said recalling the night President Obama dined at her restaurant.

“So the way I lightened the mood is by sabering bottles of champagne. I was like, well, just gonna do like usually do and had the knife standing 5 feet behind President Barack Obama and didn’t realize like the secret service is inching towards me”. She then hilariously revealed. “It happened. Everybody was excited and then everybody let out like a sigh of relief.” she said.
