Wow! And she normally has nothing bad to say about anyone!

During yesterday's Funny Women of 20th Comedy panel - which featured Modern Family's Julie Bowen and Sofia Vergara, Glee's Jane Lynch and Lea Michele, Raising Hope's Martha Plimpton, and How I Met Your Mother's Alyson Hannigan - the former Buffy actress inadvertently gave yet ANOTHER reason for people to rag on Jay Leno!

The Q&A session's moderator Jimmy Kimmel began discussing with the ladies what they thought was the key to having a successful late-night talk show appearance, and Hannigan mentioned that she thought a lot of it depends on the host.

That's when she revealed:

Certain hosts have you do your pre-interview and then you have to go on the show and retell every story verbatim or you’re not coming back. Every show is different that way. I’m not saying who, but it’s not Jimmy’s. And that’s really intimidating to have it be a big deal if you, like, switch around your punchline or whatever. There are a lot of other hosts where it’s OK to tell this story or that story, and if it veers off it’s fine because the host is secure enough to go with you, and vice-versa.”

Ohh boy!

Although she didn't outright say about what show she was talking, when someone later asked Kimmel if he had anything specifically bad to say about Leno, he responded:

“Slam Leno? Oh, uh, I think Alyson just did."

Ha! Buuuuurn!

We gotta say though, this is some pretty ridiculous shiz!

And we've got a feeling that in true Leno fashion, poor Alyson will NOT be invited back to The Tonight Show!

But is that really a loss on her part?? LOLz!

    Not surprising- Jay Leno has always seemed like a jerk, even before the Conan issue.



  2. 2

    Oh come on Alyson didn't say it was Jay, she did nothing wrong.



  3. 3

    doche!



  4. 4

    LENO IS LAME. HIS SHOW IS BORING AS FUCK MUCH LIKE CARSON WAS BACK IN THE DAY. EVERYTHING IS A SET-UP. LETTERMAN IS BETTER ANYWAY… HE AD LIBS ALL THE TIME ANYWAY.



  5. 5

    I really don't like her…she isn't funny.



  6. 6

    i have actually been backstage at the jimmy kimmel show, and HE has the celebs pre interview lol



  7. 7

    all shows do a pre-interview and all shows have a guideline of whats going to be talked about but most shows don't require you to stick to that same pre-interview word for word but apparently one show does.



  8. 8

    …ummm, and how's Conan's show doing, Mario?



  9. 9

    its not a slam if its true… its been said before Leno makes people rehearse their interviews…

    Pigga, we all get it u hate jay leno, xtina aguilera, lil Kim, you will never stop being a self loathing pig and you're miserable in your black heart and you can't help but try and make others as miserable as you are. It doesn't matter how many trips you take to Paris or Pakistan, islands or Israel or how many cheap Louis vuitton bags you buy your mom you will always be miserable and your back and mid section will always be loose and flabby.



  11. 11

    A lot of host do this like ummm Jimmy kimmel lol. What a bitchy thing to say yeah I don't care if ppl like her.



  12. 12

    Everyone pre intervies to make sure they have a good flow and have an idea of the topic for the punchline topics and make sure they have time for all the plugs… however… if the host or celebrity veer of course they go along with it and you can tell when it is cause the flow changes and is more spontenous… not leno… when Kimmel was on and veered off the pre interview Leno for one looked pissed and could not think of a comeback so he'd throw out the planned punchline which made no sence to what Jimmi was saying… Leno is lame!!!



  13. 13

    Leno sucks. He's the worst host ever. Boooo

    I used to like Leno but after seeing the inexcusably hateful, twisted rant from Bill Maher on his show, with Leno lamely encouraging him, I'll never watch him again. I have new respect for Obama for rightly reining the outrageous loons in, telling us to NOT cause division by spewing hate regarding the Arizona shootings. Bill Maher could hardly contain his hateful diatribe while actually saying that the right wants all of the left to die, and similarly outrageous things! And Leno said nothing but nodded him on. I could never watch Leno again. Especially if it's true that they rehearsed it. The audience at one point booed Maher and he said to them "Oh, do you read?" He's such a pompous gasbag.



  15. 15

    Or maybe she wasn't asked back because she's isn't funny…



  16. 16

    Oh who cares. Aren't you the one who posts his clips on here when he has a guest you love? Don't be hypocritical. Are you telling me that Kimmel isn't a bitter betty or Conan doesn't have some weird habit like dressing in drag or Letterman never had that affair? No one's perfect sheesh. Get over it already.



  17. 17

    She is very unfortunate looking.



  18. 18

    this makes a lot of sense…it's the exact reason why I don't like watching Leno…his interviews are so set-up and scripted, leaving no room for naturally funny moments to take place ala Johnny Carson or even Conan for that matter.



  19. 19

    How do you even know it was Leno? All we all know that leno made conan famous if it wasn't for him he would still have his late show that nobody cared or watched.

    It's true about Jay Leno….It happened to the Canadian comedian Russell Peters…didn't answer a question like he said he would cuz he legitamitly forgot and he wasn't allowed back. It's in his book Call Me Russell Peters.

    Big surprise. These days I guess it's more about selling the commercials than it is about an actual honest interview; spontaneity, warts and all. Bottom line, bottom line, bottom line. Phuck it.
