Kristen Johnston stopped by 'The Wendy Williams Show' to talk about her new TV Land sitcom 'The Exes,' but before she could get to that, Wendy wanted to know all the details of her airplane scuffle with the Octomom, otherwise known Nadya Suleman, that made tabloid headlines in July.

Johnston had the bad luck to be on a flight with Suleman and her eight screaming children that was delayed on the tarmac for two hours. "It wasn't like children screaming and crying, it was like, they were just unhappy and loud," Johnston described. Johnston admitted to marching to the back of the plane to talk to the Octomom, who she found reading a magazine. Johnston told her to "get better control of your kids or get better help."

Kristen Johnston, Nadya SulemanWhen Octomom became a household word, people everywhere dreamed of what they'd say to Nadya Suleman, the outrageous single mom of multiples who was grabbing headlines for all the wrong reasons.

According to MSNBC, Kristen Johnston -- best known for her role on '3rd Rock From the Sun' -- got the chance on a recent flight from NYC to L.A.

Apparently Octomom was having trouble keeping her 12 children quiet, even before the flight took off, and the outspoken Johnston was not gonna put up with it for the entire cross-country trip.

Suleman's rep told E!: "Nadya and her children were in business class ... apparantly Kristen became upset and came from 1st class to tell her to keep her kids quiet. They had an altercation and Kristen got off the plane and never returned. While Nadya had help from her friend and two older children, it's not easy to travel with one two-year-old let alone eight two-year-olds on a plane. She did the best anyone could."
