First lady Michelle Obama should definitely think about a future in hosting her own television show.

Obama, 52, recently co-hosted an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Tuesday, when she brought the laughs and also talked about what she's going to miss most about living in the White House.

"It's really the people. The girls have grown up in the White House," she says, referring to her and president Barack Obama's daughters, 18-year-old Malia and 15-year-old Sasha. "I mean, the staff that's there, we see them every day. These are people who have helped us raise our kids. They've loved us, they've taken care of us. The minute we leave, that's it."

"I'm sure the girls will have a tough time," she muses. "They think they're ready, but when you've grown up in a place ... I mean, imagine, they won't be able to knock on a door and say, 'Can I see my room?' You know, that's not gonna happen. So, we're trying to have them step back and really appreciate the walk on the South Lawn, sitting on the Truman Balcony. I mean, we just want to keep creating some memories for them as well."

Obama says she and the president couldn't be happier about how their girls have grown up.

"I'm proud of them, they've really managed this so well," she says. "I mean, I just love them to death and the big thing I've always worried about was making sure that they got out of this whole. I'm just proud that they are poised, smart, intelligent young women."

The first lady was up for some fun during the show, including poking fun at her hubby's large ears while interviewing NBA star Stephen Curry.

Bradley Cooper later popped in for a surprise appearance, and Obama couldn't help but adorably fangirl over the handsome actor. After Cooper confessed he went sans underwear at the February 2014 state dinner because the only tuxedo he owned didn't fit, DeGeneres sarcastically joked, "Because if it should rip, it's much better not to have underwear on."

"Well, for us," Obama immediately cracked. "It's good for us, right ladies?"
