Joke's On Her
On my wish list this year: comfortable stilettos, low-calorie Cronuts, a really good new comedy. So three cheers for Nightcap, a series about the behind-the-scenes insanity at a late-night talk show. Conducting the crazy train is the show’s talent booker, Staci—played by Ali Wentworth, one of the funniest people I know—who has to keep celeb guests happy. Ali told me she was shameless in asking her famous friends to guest-star. So expect to see Kelly Ripa, Andy Cohen, and even Ali’s husband, Good Morning America’s George Stephanopoulos (“I threw him a bone,” she says), on their worst—and funniest—behavior when the series premieres November 16 on Pop.
