Kristin Chenoweth went on The Late Show With David Letterman last night to promote her new show GCB (which stands for Good Christian
Bitches Belles), and something about her behavior seemed a bit off. More so than usual, I mean.
She showed up to the interview in sunglasses, explaining that she’d had a horrible eyelash extension mishap. Is it just me, or does that sound like a Jenna Maroney plot from 30 Rock? Over the course of the clip, she does a slightly racist impression of the Asian lady who put the lashes on her (it’s not her fault she forgot to notify her of any allergies), giggles a lot, and eventually takes off her glasses to reveal some seriously wonky eyes. But then she sees herself on camera, and starts to like them! “As I look at the camera, I think I look a little sexier with the eyes, cause they don’t open, they’re like slutty eyes,” she says.
But then she backtracks by exclaiming, “it’s dead people’s juice on my lids and I’m dying!” Maybe she should have thought about that before she signed up to have formaldehyde put near her precious peepers? At one point, she realizes she’s acting weird and blames her behavior on the Benadryl she’s taking, but Benadryl makes you sleepy, not cracked out like Chenoweth is here. By the time she talks about putting Vick’s Vapo Rub up her nose (“I believe it stops bacteria”), you just want to put her out of her misery. And also maybe have some of what she’s having, in the privacy of your own home.
