Personal Quote:

[To participants at the launch of the 2011-12 TV season] I have gotten better. We had dinner last week, and I was pretty good the whole dinner. I made sure not to have one drink. I was, like, 'Give me a Diet Coke and talk slowly. Mommy needs to not scare the new employers, OK?' I can be overly enthusiastic, as some of you may know, but it's going well. See more »

Trivia:

Appeared as a lifeline on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (1999), correctly answering the question, and helping the contestant win $32,000. She later invited the contestant onto her show, and gave him a week-long trip to London, England, UK. See more »
