Before you became a parent, did you say things like, "I would never let my kid eat at McDonald's/play video games" that you've come to change your mind about?
I remember a time before my husband and I had kids, we went to a breakfast place and the table next to us had some kids and when they left it was just a disaster of Cheerios and fruit thrown all about and on the floor. I did say something like that will never be me, that poor busboy. It did become me, but I made up for it by always tipping very well. My kids do eat McDonald's and play video games but with restrictions. During Christmas we got some Christmas letters from friends and their kids really seemed to be setting the world on fire. They were playing instruments and on traveling soccer teams and I felt a little inadequate. But then it started to rain and my son said, "Mom, it's raining! Let's get all that money we've been saving for a rainy day and buy whatever we want. You can get your wine and I can get my video games," and I said to myself I doubt those cello-playing nerds in that Christmas card ever said something that funny.
Can you give us any dirt on any Chelsea Latelyguests? Which celebrities smell bad?

No dirt, more happy surprises of how sweet some of them are and we are always shocked to hear they are big fans of ours. A couple of months ago Fergie was a guest and she told our producer she was dying to do a sketch with us. We have a Chelsea Lately dance crew so we decided to do a dance with her. When we entered her dressing room to practice the routine she was nervous to meet us and few minutes in she said "I can't believe I'm actually here with the Chelsea Lately comedians." I mean this is Fergielicious are you kidding me?
You tweeted "I would look so horrible w/out my curling iron, face creams & makeup. And that is why I will never commit murder." How vain are you?
I wrote that after watching a 48 Hour Mystery, which is my all-time favorite show. However, I do think they are running out of stories about spouses killing each other because I feel like I've seen everyone. But this particular one the murderess was very pretty and after a year behind bars she still looked pretty good because she had naturally straight hair. I don't have that. My hair needs to be blown out with soft curls. Obviously, I was joking about committing murder but my biggest fear is that I would end up in jail for something I didn't do and while trying to prove my innocence I'd be kept from my coveted beauty supplies. I think it would be harder to convince a jury of my peers that I was framed with frizzy hair and large pores.
