Baltimore native Jada Pinkett Smith and her husband, Will, are expecting Michelle Obama over for lunch -- and some other very fancy guests.

The Smiths are opening their home in Calabasas, Calif., on Oct. 25 for an Obama fundraiser that the first lady will attend.

Also expected to be there are co-host Salma Hayek and Lady Gaga manager Troy Carter.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, it will cost people $2,500 just to get in the door, and $10,000 per couple to have a photo snapped with Michelle Obama.

For those with $40,000 to spare, you get entry, the photographic evidence AND a meet-and-greet with the first lady before lunch.

Pinkett Smith is a vocal supporter of Obama's, often Tweeting the president's quotes and things from the White House Twitter feed.

The Smith's home, by the way, is a tour stop and attraction in and of itself. Last year, the 25,000 square foot manse was featured in Architectural Digest -- as the cover story.

No word yet on what lunch will be. Maybe Pinkett Smith will let her Baltimore roots show and serve crab cakes.
