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.”
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."
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!
