If Deborah Tillman ever retires from her new role as 'America's Supernanny' on Lifetime TV, she could have a lucrative career posing as a look-alike for First Lady, Michelle Obama. The childcare expert recently cast as 'America's Supernanny' bears a striking resemblance to the First Lady with her hair, smile and figure.
Tillman revealed to Anderson Cooper on Wednesday's 'Anderson Live' broadcast that she gets told at least two times a day by strangers that she looks like the First Lady. Earlier this week when the Presidential Inauguration was taking place, Tillman was at JFK airport and someone stopped her and said, "You're the First Lady." Tillman was surprised that the stranger would think this knowing that the First Lady was at the Presidential Inauguration that very second in Washington DC.
Tillman was cast in the revamped 'America's Supernanny: Family Lockdown' in 2011 on Lifetime television. She is the CEO of three childcare centers in Northern Virginia and the author of two books on childcare and child development. The original 'Supernanny' series aired from 2005 to 2011 on ABC with British childcare expert, Jo Frost. When the series was cancelled, Lifetime decided to start a new version of the series called 'America's Supernanny' which is now in its second season.
As the First Lady has made a full-blown effort to improve the lives of children through her food education initiative, Let's Move!, the Supernanny's goal is also to improve the lives of children and their families. In a press release, Tillman stated: “I feel blessed and privileged that I have been chosen to do exactly what I was put on earth to do -- and that is to help children and families come together, get it together and stay together.”
