Kristin Chenoweth on Her Weird Blind Date Experience on 'Late Late Show' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 2nd 2011 4:30AM
Kristin Chenoweth, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'It sounded like the problem with Kristin Chenoweth's blind date had a lot more to do with the guy's behavior than the fact that he wasn't as cute as Geoff on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS). He had a "great" idea for a fun prank to play on the mutual friends they were going with, but it's the kind of prank you really only should suggest to someone you've been with for a while. Certainly not a first date kind of stunt.

His idea was to pass cute notes back and forth, culminating in him asking Chenoweth to take off her panties and give them to him. Then, when she does they adorably have "I Love" and then his name on them. Funny stuff, right? Well, Chenoweth wasn't down with that.

Kristin Chenoweth Says Supporting Gay Rights Doesn't Clash With Her Christian Beliefs

by Catherine Lawson, posted Sep 8th 2011 7:25AM
Kristin ChenowethKristin Chenoweth is probably best-known to TV audiences for her hilarious guest-star spots on 'Glee,' playing the alcoholic high school dropout April Rhodes. But come midseason she'll be hitting the small screen with a starring role in ABC's new Bible Belt comedy, 'Good Christian Belles.'

The Tony-winning Broadway star ('Wicked') also has a successful recording career, and has been out on the interview circuit lately to promote her latest album, 'Some Lessons Learned,' which is where she's courted controversy in some circles by confirming that her staunch Christian beliefs are not at odds with her support for the gay community.

In an interview with 'The Advocate' Chenoweth says that people are born gay or straight, just like they're either tall or short, and that it's not a choice. In response to a question about people who cite Christinaity as justification for passing discriminatory laws, she said "I would ask, 'What would Jesus do?'"

She added that, "It sounds so cliché and Pollyanna-ish, but I have a feeling if he were on the earth today, he wouldn't be walking around saying, 'You're going to hell' and 'You're wrong, you're wrong, you're wrong.' I think he'd be accepting and loving."

Dot-Marie Jones on her 'Glee' Emmy nomination on 'Good Day LA'Dot-Marie Jones's Coach Beiste is perhaps the only person in the 'Glee' universe who could go toe-to-toe with Jane Lynch's Sue Sylvester. For that fortitude and charisma, she was rewarded with an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Guest Actress.

Tuesday, 'Good Day LA' (weekdays, 9AM PT on FOX) anchor Tony McEwing got a glimpse of how intimidating Jones can be when he mispronounced her character's name (it's pronounced like "beast," but McEwing said "beasty").

McEwing immediately apologized, and asked her to be gentle. "I'm always gentle," she said, "for a minute." He also noticed she had a broken foot. "I broke a bone because somebody wasn't gentle, Tony," said Jones.

Kristin Chenoweth Is a 'Good Christian Belle'

by Rae Votta, posted Jun 19th 2011 5:00PM
Kristin ChenowethKristin Chenoweth is returning to TV full time early next year as part of ABC's mid-season comedy 'Good Christian Belles.' In the meantime, the multi-talented actress took time away from her busy schedule this week to visit New York to co-host 'Live! With Regis and Kelly' as well as support Wendy's and their fifth annual Father's Day Frosty Weekend (June 18-19) where 50 cents from every Frosty sold benefits the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. We chatted with Chenoweth about the campaign, plus her role on 'Glee,' her upcoming TV show and her new album.

You're set to star on a new show, 'Good Christian Belles.' What other TV show would you compare it to?
I'm glad I can't think of another show to compare it to. It takes places in a world I haven't seen before on television -- the church. You know all these women no matter what religion you are. And this is a world I know really well, growing up in the Bible Belt.

You work with Annie Potts on 'GCB,' what's she like?
She's a dream come true, exactly the kind, wonderful sweet southern woman you expect her to be. She reminds me of my aunts. I miss all my girls, we filmed the pilot and then we got picked up and we don't start filming again until the end of July.

We know it's easy, but any dream guest stars for the show?
I'm a big fan of Debbie Monk and Shawn McBride, actors who just take stuff and run with it. I also think of my friends like Molly Shannon, it would be fun to work with old friends, but also fun to make new friends.

Larry the Cable Guy Mixes It Up With Kristin Chenoweth on 'Regis' (VIDEO)

Larry the Cable Guy, Regis Philbin, and Kristin Chenoweth on 'Live With Regis and Kelly'If you're promoting anything this week on the TV talk show circuit, there's a good chance you'll be following Ryan Reynolds, whose 'Green Lantern' officially hits theaters Friday. On 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated) Wednesday to promote 'Cars 2,' Larry the Cable Guy found a notable drop in enthusiasm when his turn in the interview chair came up.

Regis Philbin did his part to hype Larry, saying, "There's only one guy in the country who could follow Mr. Beautiful, and that's Larry the Cable Guy." But Larry noticed when the two were announced as guests at the top of the show, Reynolds' name got guest co-host Kristin Chenoweth excited. Not so much for Larry, who feigned indignation. "Here I stand, three hours a day in the gym, and I don't get nothing," he said.

"What are you doing there, hanging out?" replied Chenoweth. It's not all Larry's fault. He plays Mater, the tow truck in 'Cars 2,' and he said he had to gain weight for the role.

'Glee' Season 2, Episode 19 Recap

by Joel Keller, posted May 4th 2011 1:00AM
'Glee' - 'Rumours'
['Glee' - 'Rumours']

Now that 'Glee' has completed almost two seasons, I'm wondering which kind of episode is better: one that centers around one artist or album or one that centers around a theme but uses songs from different artists. Both have their merits, but I'll tell you what: episodes revolving around a single artist or album are a heck of a lot easier to review.

Why? For one, you're not busy searching for song titles and artists. Second, you can see pretty easily if the episode adheres well to the theme set forth by the choice of that artist or album. And this week, the theme of "Rumors" was brought home pretty well by the glee club's cover of most of Fleetwood Mac's landmark album 'Rumours.'

And, in a pleasant turn of events, we not only got some well-done musical numbers, ones that seemed to have some emotion behind them, but we also got stories that seemed to be as coherent as any we've seen in this checkered season.

'Glee' Creator Confirms New Musical Series with Kristin Chenoweth

by Chris Harnick, posted Aug 3rd 2010 1:20PM
Kristin Chenoweth'Glee' creator Ryan Murphy confirmed at the TCA panel for his hit series that he's working on a new musical series for Emmy-winner Kristin Chenoweth.

Put away those outraged faces, 'Glee' is not getting a spin-off -- yet. According to Zap2It, the new TV project will be separate from the Fox series and more adult, Murphy said.

"I've always wanted to do something for Kristin, and Kristin is a good, close friend of mine obviously, so I'm writing a half-hour musical comedy specifically for Kristin because if you can sing like that, I want her to be the star of her own show where she sings," Murphy told TV critics. "I can't say too much about it yet. Kristin is so funny. I want it to be adult."

Kristin Chenoweth's Twitter Story and Short Dress Lead to Unladylike Interview (VIDEO)

Twitter, Short Skirt Lead to Unladylike Chenoweth InterviewKristin Chenoweth told David Letterman on the 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS) how to use Twitter for good and not for evil. Although, in the process, she cussed, she may have gotten someone fired, and then she accidentally flashed her undies.

As she began to tell her Twitter story, she used the past tense of "twit" (get it?), which had to be beeped out. "I knew, I knew I was gonna say that. It slipped right out!" Letterman joked, "Now I think I might try [Twitter]!"

She continued, saying she twitted about a rude Starbucks employee. The manager's swift Twitter reply led Chenoweth to fear the employee got fired. "I hope she didn't lose her job," said Chenoweth. "But, you know what, people don't have jobs, so you better be grateful."

Then the singer/actress uncrossed her legs in a very short dress. "I just realized that if I'm not careful, I could do a Sharon Stone," she said, referring to the infamous scene from 'Basic Instinct.'
