'Chelsea Lately': Kaley Cuoco's Celebrity Crush, Wondering When 'People's Choice' Awards Are (VIDEO)

Even celebrities get celebrity crushes. The difference for them is they get to sometimes meet their crushes, and on rare occasions even work with them. On "Chelsea Lately," Kaley Cuoco talked about getting to work with one of her crushes, Rob Lowe, in the Lifetime film "Drew Peterson: Untouchable."

Based on the true story of Peterson -- currently in jail awaiting trial, charged with the murder of his third wife -- Lowe plays the title character, while Cuoco was cast as his fourth wife Stacy, who disappeared mysteriously.

Despite the uncomfortable roles both actors were playing, Cuoco couldn't deny that she enjoyed parts of it. "I got to make out with him a lot, even though he looked like that," she said of Lowe's makeup to resemble Peterson, "It just doesn't matter."

Cuoco's other new gig is hosting this Wednesday night's "People's Choice Awards," but the actress admitted almost messing that up. "I thought 'People's Choice,' that I'm hosting Wednesday was yesterday," she admitted. "Was Sunday."

Luckily, her mother straightened her out, or Cuoco might have gotten some funny looks showing up at the venue and wondering where everybody was.

"Drew Peterson: Untouchable" premieres January 12 at 8 p.m EST on Lifetime, while Cuoco can be seen as host of the "People's Choice Awards" at 8 p.m. EST on CBS this Wednesday, January 11. She can, of course, also be seen every Thursday at 8 p.m. EST on CBS' "The Big Bang Theory." "Chelsea Lately" airs weeknights at 11 p.m. EST on E!
