    ML was born in 1942, BTW. I'll give her the benefit of the doubt and assume that she was being utterly annoying on purpose here....

    I may be mis-remembering, but I believe in the wake of Fox firing Joan (and Edgar) from the show, Michele Lee was one of numerous guest-hosts they had appear while they desperately tried to get someone (anyone) to take on hosting the show full-time. I seem to recall she only did it once; most stars of any magnitude would not go much beyond that, for fear of getting blacklisted by The Tonight Show.

    She did serve as a guest host for one episode, but I think it was sometimes in the middle of the run when joan Rivers was on vacation, not after she was fired.

    They joke about it after she's back, and Michele jokingly comes and takes Joan's seat.
