(audience applauds) Thank you for watching. Say hello to my co-hosts, my studio audience. How you doin’? How you doin’? Well my microphone has slipped down to my booty. It’s okay now. Let’s get started. It’s time for Hot Topics. (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) (deep bass music) Guys, I’ve been thinking about Kevin Hart. We haven’t talked about him much but he’s speaking out for his self for the very first time. You know he had that horrible car crash where his car careened off of the Mulholland boulevard or whatever it’s called, in LA, hi LA. And it careened down into an embankment like a pit. He could be dead. (audience murmurs) He was with a male friend of his and a female friend of his, and the three of them, it was after midnight, it was horrible. You know the story. So last night, he posted a really interesting video of him doing recovery. He’s learning how to do everything else I guess again. And some of it he’s doing in his palatial mansion right there. Gorgeous. But point is, health is better than wealth, and Kevin talked about how the accident has really changed him, made him a different person. Take a look. But after my accident, I see things differently. I see life from a whole new perspective and my appreciation for life is through the roof. I’m thankful for my family, my friends. I’m thankful for the people that simply ride with me and that’ve been with me ’cause you stood by me. My fans. Wow. (audience applauds) On a side note, am I the only one checkin’ out his package? (audience laughs) I mean the gold suit is making everything pretty pronounced. Kevin, I wish him well. I like Kevin Hart. His doctors are saying that he will be recovered but it’ll take about a year. So he’s going through this and we’re with you, Kev. We’re with you. (audience applauds) So now, happy birthday. I see you. Uh-huh, the king. (laughs) (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) How you doin’? All right, so here’s my thing, and I love Will & Grace. Will & Grace to me rings in my heart like Seinfeld and Sex In The City, and Friends. And Good Times. Three comfortable shows. I can turn them on, I know the dialog, they’re just there while I’m busy. But like friends in the house without talkin’ back at ya, right? So the cast of Will & Grace are apparently at war. I don’t like to see this. I don’t wanna know that Elaine doesn’t get along with Jerry. And I don’t wanna know that Grace doesn’t get along with Karen. (audience murmurs) Well apparently, this is what’s going on. (audience murmurs) Okay. (audience laughs) It has become so bad, Megan Mullally is her real name. Remember when she used to have a talk show? Uh-huh. (audience murmurs) Okay girl. (audience laughs) And remember when she was the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter? (audience murmurs) Do you remember that? That was a good one. I had that last night on a baked potato filled with collared greens and sour cream and the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. (audience laughs) And I eat my baked potato, including the skin. Clap if you eat the skin. (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) And I had a friend over, right? Oh. Excuse me. (audience laughs) So I had a friend over, I was entertaining, and I made two baked potatoes. So he doesn’t eat the skin, he only guts it out. I pulled his skin right on over (audience laughs) after mine, and look, look, heated it back up with the collared greens inside, put a little cheese in that, some I Can’t Believe It’s Not (audience laughs) and some sour cream. It was two meals in one. (audience laughs)
(audience applauds) So anyway, the feud between Megan Mullally and Debra Messing is apparently so bad that Megan took a leave of absence from Will & Grace. Oh. Now see, now you’re offending me. You’re offending my programming. I’m there for Will & Grace. I supported you guys from the first episode when the guy who plays Jack posed as straight in real life. Oh. Only to deceive us and come out as gay in real life once it was all done. I was like honey, who d’you think you were foolin’ all along? (audience laughs) Okay? Nobody acts that good. (audience laughs) Anyhoo, I love the show. I just, here’s my thing, Will & Grace, do you understand as a super fan, a super fan, not just a fan, that I could do this show without both of you. All I need is Karen, Jack and the maid. Now that’s a show. You know what I’m saying? Norman, we talked about this. Yep. (laughs) Right. What is the show without Jack? Just Jack is the best. And what is the show without Karen? Nothing. And the housekeeper. And the housekeeper, Rosario, who is not on it anymore, but… Oh. I mean I know. I mean I mourn her loss but okay, Jack and Karen. Now I don’t know what’s going on. This summer, Debra and Megan unfollowed each other on Instagram, which is so childish. Yeah, yeah, they did that. They unfollowed. Megan posted “One of the best feelings “is finally losing your attachment to someone “who isn’t good for you.” Oh. How high school are we? Debra Messing looks great though, right? Yes. Yeah, yeah. All her hair. (audience applauds) I think that somebody from upper management should’ve stepped in, only that doesn’t really work with grown adult people. That usually works with the kids on shows and stuff like that. I don’t know. So this is me steppin’ in, sayin’, you all, you’d better get this together, all right, ’cause as a super fan, I am very disappointed to know. I don’t like that Samantha doesn’t like Carrie. I don’t even like that from Sex In The City. (audience murmurs) What are you wearing? Your bed sheet? (audience laughs) No, it’s fabulous. Look, look, look, you look terrific. Look, look, you got the hair. Yes. (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) Yes, yes. (laughs) How you doin’? But do you understand? I buy into my shows so much that I don’t wanna know that Suzanne and I don’t get along behind the scenes. Exactly. Or Samantha doesn’t get along with Carrie. Or Will doesn’t get along with Grace who doesn’t get along with Karen. I don’t wanna know that. Keep that to yourselves and let us live in our fantasy world. This is what TV is for. We fantasize. (audience applauds) Anyhoo, Will & Grace, everyone, for your watching entertainment, airs Thursday night at 9:30 on NBC. Let’s watch. (audience applauds) He double stuck this down ’cause I was like okay, all show, I’m gonna be pullin’ this off, that it’s supposed to be off the shoulder. I’m fidgeting with my clothes, I’m tryin’ to talk. I’m thinkin’ about stuff I have to do later. By the way, right, (laughs) so I got so tired after the potatoes and the collared greens and the sour cream and I Can’t Believe, right? So I’m alone and it’s just me and the cats. All right, we had a guest but, just sayin’. And so look, so I put everything on the counter ’cause when you don’t have pets, you’re used to putting stuff on the counter and then that’s it, right? I put everything on the counter and I’m like I’m going to bed. I was all lethargic. I come back downstairs a half hour later ’cause I forgot to bring water. I like to sleep with water right there on my night table in case I start coughin’ or somethin’ or chokin’ in the middle of the night. (audience laughs) I went down for the water and Chitchat and Myway are throwing down, all the way down, on the little scraps that I left on the plate. They don’t even, I look at them and I say, “What are you girls doing?” (audience laughs) Aw. Oh. Aw. Look, look, so they are throwing down on the collared greens and baked potato and the butter, and before you cat people tell me oh, cats aren’t supposed to eat this, cats aren’t supposed, my cats eat everything, including Jolly Ranchers and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Leave me alone. (audience applauds) And by the way, I leave the TV on, one of the TVs for them to watch, so hi girls, hi. I’ll be home when I’m, yeah, yeah, they watch. They pay attention. And they also like the Lester Holt. Uh-huh, oh yes, oh yes. Oh yes. Mommy, can you get with him? No girls, he’s married. So? No girls, we don’t do that. Anyway, Emma Thompson, do you know who that is? Yes. She’s a really cool woman and she’s got a really, really, our kinda attitude about life. Just a really cool woman. I don’t know her but I’ve read a lot of articles about her. Well she tried to stop a waiter from being fired. So Emma was out with her celebrity friends and they were at some fancy hotel in London. And you can tell by the front it’s fancy and it’s hotelish. Anyway, yep, there you go. When you see all those flags, that’s when you know. (audience laughs) I only know one place that has all those flags outside here in New York and that’s the Norma Kamali store. She’s got four. And she changes ’em for the season. Anyway, hi Norma. (audience laughs) So the waiter asked for a selfie and Emma politely declined. And then, somehow upper management found out and the waiter was suspended, and it got to be a bigger deal than it was supposed to be. A reporter called Emma for a comment about this guy being suspended. And she was horrified about what had happened. So Emma turned around, ’cause she’s a cool woman, she called the restaurant herself and she said please give him back his job. Well no word yet on whether they would give him back his job or not. I can’t believe that something like a stupid selfie got to be a big hubbub. If you’re not gonna take a selfie with somebody then you politely decline but low tones, like no thank you. And then you change waiters, by the way, okay? (audience laughs) Okay. And you know why, and you know why. Same waiter’s gonna hock a loogie (audience laughs) in the middle of your baked potato and collared greens. Stir it up, you won’t even know the difference. But that’s how I think. That’s how I think. You and I aren’t like that, allegedly. (Norman laughs) (audience laughs) But we know people who would do that, right? Right. Exactly. I think it was really cool that she called the restaurant and said please give him back his job. No word on whether he got his job back. I mean he was suspended but other people are saying he was fired. In my Hot Topics meeting, they were saying he should’ve gotten a strict warning. In my meeting in my head, I say why does everybody even know about this? What are we talking about here? If you don’t wanna take a selfie then you just say no thank you and then either you stop ordering stuff or you change your waiter. And you don’t get, ’cause now the waiter’s all mad, she won’t take a selfie, and then in our Hot Topics morning meeting, everyone but me, including you, Norman, said he should’ve gone outside to take a picture with her afterwards. But he’s a senior staffer. He’s been working there for years, like the maid from the Beverly Hills Hotel that I was talking to you about with, yesterday, if you watched, with… What’s her name, with the dress? Lady Gaga. I don’t know. I’m distracted right now ’cause I know LisaRaye is here and… (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) This girl, this LisaRaye, right, she never disappoints with the shade of it all. Pick a finger and she’ll show you which one to take. Oh. Norman, do you take pictures with celebrities? Wait, wait, no, no, no. No, no, no. I mean here. Here? There’s a policy, I thought. I mean it’s been 11 years but I seem to remember there’s some policy where nobody bothers anybody when they come here. It’s supposed to be a safe space for celebrities, no selfies. It’s not like a written policy but it’s just spoken here. Just unspoken. But I made an exception one time. (laughs) See, what happened was, (audience laughs) I snuck upstairs for Queen Kenya Moore and I took a selfie with her. She’s coming here, by the way. Right, yeah. She’ll be here any moment. Not today, but you know. Right. Yeah. I love her so much. And did anybody see you from the staff do this? No, it was really secret. I was like, looked to the right, looked to the left. You looked around? And like hey girl. (audience laughs) Oh my gosh, there it is, right. (laughs) Right. And it’s on my Instagram. She looks pleasant about it. Pleasant, so sweet. Now when she comes back, will you do the same thing? Yeah. (laughs) (audience laughs) (audience applauds) Who would you rather though? Mariah Carey or Kenya Moore? Mariah Carey, darling. (laughs) (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) This is a safe space, they call it? It’s a safe space. Okay. There’s a school in Wisconsin that’s tryin’ to help students have less stressful lunches. Now as a parent, I have to say, and also as a grown woman who went through hell growing up, we are coddling these kids way too much. Yeah. These kids are supposed to lead the country. They can’t even lead themselves. (audience applauds) You know what I’m sayin’? We give them trophies for swingin’ a bat. They miss the ball every time. (audience laughs) Why are we rewarding that? When you’re stupid, you’re stupid, call it what it is. (audience laughs) Stupid. (audience applauds) So there’s this school in Wisconsin, okay? First of all, the school is kindergarten through 12th grade, which I find horrific. If I’m in 12th grade, what do I wanna see a little kindergartner walkin’ around my halls for? All right, so you need to chop up the schools, like K through six and then middle school or junior high, what they call it, is the seven through eight. And then high school is nine through 12. Also, all right, this school has assigned each student to a lunchroom seat so that no kid ends up alone. (audience murmurs) Well this is what it’s come to. To me, the lunchroom is the first place that you have your first battles. (audience laughs) Right? The black kids sit over there. (audience laughs) The gay kids have their corner. The cool girls, cheerleaders sit over there. Then you have the in-between people. For me, I wasn’t at the black people table ’cause the black people called me white girl, so they sat over there. So I’m over here with my friend Liz and Diane. Liz, hi Liz. And Diane Vannote, and Diane Sinert, and we would sit and we would have our food and it was a nice place. But the point being is that you pick your own tables. And if by chance your kid is so much of an outsider then they need to learn how to integrate with everyone else. (audience applauds) Find friends. Or sit at the table by yourself and review your math ’cause you got a quiz right after lunch. Suzanne? Yeah. How d’you sit? I sat with my best friends. Dawn, Monique, Billie, Gina, Tracy, Kim. No, were you popular? Were you a cheerleader? I was not a cheerleader, no. But I’m saying were you– Yes, I played soccer, I ran track. We all sat together, a group of us. And they were athletes also? Yep, we all, yep, exactly. And see, the athletes sit together. Mhm, mhm. Norman? Who d’you sit with? The rainbow show? With the rainbow tribe. Yep. (laughs) What? No, I– I guessed it? Yeah, they would call us the rainbow tribe because it was black and white. I had a Filipino friend, a Puerto Rican friend. It was like– Oh. Yeah, we integrated. But were they rainbowish? (audience laughs) (laughs) Some of ’em, yep. Some of them. Eventually? Uh-huh. See? Right, you find your people. So you didn’t sit at the black table? (audience laughs) I would have liked to but all my friends were all over. How you doin’? How you doin’? (laughs) (audience laughs)
(audience applauds) I’m just saying, I feel like kids are being too coddled too much and we don’t let them tough it out. Because they’re leading the world after we’re gone and what kinda leaders are we gonna have? You know what I’m sayin’? (audience applauds) On another note, I did shed a tear when I found out that John Witherspoon passed away. Aw. I mean I didn’t know him, know him, but he’d been on my radio show, bang, bang. He’d been here on the TV show. We didn’t hear that he was sick. He died suddenly. He was the Pops on the Wayans show. So many good movies. (audience applauds) He was in “Boomerang”. Okay, I’ll take it just ’cause I like to show this. But I don’t wanna mess up my makeup so I’ll stick with the, look, he was in “Fridays” and “Boomerangs” and he was only 77 years old. And we never saw him sickly. He was with it and just that guy. So shout out to his wife and his two sons and the rest of his family and friends. (audience applauds) Rest in peace, John Witherspoon. Bang, bang. We got more great show for you everybody. (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) Up next, a real-life hot topic, the girl who gives it up, LisaRaye McCoy is here. So grab a snack and come on back. (dance music) (audience cheers)
