Kristin Chenoweth and Anderson Cooper found a common ground, and almost forgot about the audience in the excitement on Monday's installment of "Anderson" (Weekdays, Syndicated). Chenoweth also started kicking herself for not tuning in to his show enough. Who knew both share such an avid love for reality television and the people featured thereon.
Chenoweth was upset that she hadn't know that Abby Lee Miller and the "Dance Moms" were on the show, but she did give the crowd her impression of the dance instructor Cooper described with one word. "Monster."
"I turn out stars, baby. I'm not here to make friends!" Chenoweth shouted in her best Miller voice. As to how she would have responded to that kind of instruction growing up? "I would have been in the corner in tears bawling."
The pair then talked about their fascination with "My Strange Addiction," with Chenoweth laughing in shock recalling the woman who was eating the ashes of her husband, which Cooper didn't seem to recall. But they both remembered Animal Planet's "Monsters Inside Me," featuring people with parasites living inside their bodies.
Their tastes seem to run toward the more outrageous reality fare, but these are top shows so they're certainly not alone. So next time something on the screen has stomachs turning, just think that it may have some famous stomachs rolling as well.
Kristin Chenoweth can be seen on "GCB," Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on ABC. "Anderson" is syndicated nationally. Check local listings for time and channel.
