Get her, Joan!!!
"Don't you count summers?!!"
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.
Ugh! ML as a talk show host?!!! Hell on Earth!
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.
Double checked -Michele served as guest host late April , when joan Rivers was on vacation (or on "vacation"). They had rotating guest hosts that week.
Michele then had another appearance as a guest on may 13, and Joan's last show was 2 days later on may 15.
Then they started another celeb guest host rotation.
The show, in a nutshell:
I can't believe I watched this trainwreck again. Michele is trying much too hard.
Joan smelled this and pounced!!!!! Even Ball was telling Lee she was bombing right on the show!!!
I hope you'll get to meet her one day in real life and see how sweet she really is
