The former First Lady of the United States made the admission after her personal life was probed by Ms King. Mrs Obama is married to ex-US President Barack, who ran the US for eight years from 2008. And during the interview she admitted to having an active sex life.
Responding, Ms King said: “Great sex at every age, care to share?”
According to Grabien, Mrs Obama joked back: “Yes, I support that principle. I mean come on Gayle, yes.
“What are you supposed to say to that?
“No, I take issue with great sex at every age! No!”

During the lengthy interview, the pair covered a range of topics including how she dealt with negative media criticism during her husband’s reign.
She also spoke at length about the impact it had on her children’s upbringing.
Mrs Obama explained that she was “surprised” daughters Malia and Sasha had made friends while at the White House.
The 55-year-old was concerned that they may have struggled but that their “regular” upbringing helped keep them level-headed.
Reflecting on her parenting, she said: “Our focus was to make sure they did what they needed to do, and that meant pretend like all the craziness around them wasn’t happening.
“For eight years we were like, ‘Yup, your dad’s President.
“That doesn’t have anything to do with you. Take your butt to school. Yes, you have security, just ignore them, they’re not here for you.'”
Mr Obama’s term in office concluded when current US President Donald Trump prevailed over his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton three years ago.
