In the episode, titled “That’s What Friends Are For,” according to a press release published by the channel, the premiere episode has Rainbow convincing Dre “to attend a fundraising event for When We All Vote in the hopes to make some new couple friends (and to do their part in increasing participating in each and every election), but Dre is convinced there will be nothing but dud husbands there to befriend.

“Their expectations are far exceeded when the special guest for the evening is none other than Michelle Obama. To their surprise, the former first lady accepts an invitation for dinner at their house. But on the evening of the special meal, the rest of the Johnsons want to crash the occasion.”

Michelle Obama and Tracee Ellis-Ross have a real life friendship that helped make the episode possible. Ross told The Wall Street Journal that she invited her “friend” Obama to do the cameo, “It was a phone call I made,” she said.

Before the show aired Tuesday, Obama tweeted a video with Ross (wearing a protective face shield). “It was fun being on set with @TraceeEllisRoss and the cast and crew of @BlackishABC,” Obama wrote. “So grateful to be a part of it!”

Anderson, 51, opened up about his friendship with Ross, 49, in a recent interview with Parade magazine. The actor said that while hosting an awards show with Ross years ago, he made a joke that offended her, leading to a decade-long icy relationship.

“We laugh about this now, but Tracee didn’t like me for maybe 10 years!” he told Parade. “We hosted the Vibe Awards [in 2005]. As we were walking onto the stage there was a loud sound over the speaker, and I said, ‘Tracee? Did you fart?’ The audience loved it, but what I did not know is how offended Tracee was by that comment.”
