WWHL's Segment Producer recalls the Great Fire of 2012. 

on Sep 19, 2012

What a night. And here I thought watching Theresa Caputo medium people into full-on tears would be the highlight!

Little did I know what was in store for us Tuesday night in the form of Oscar Award winner, former Judy Garland neighbor, and my brand new National Treasure, Cloris Leachman. Where do I even begin? When you started the show with a three-way Andy/Jeff Lewis kiss off? When you called Ronald Reagan "not bright?" When you kissed Jeff and Andy AGAIN to see if their kisses had improved? When you shut Jeff down by saying he's "more gay than anybody"? When you full on frenched Andy at the end of the show? Oh, Maw Maw, you are a STAR!

Wait, probably my favorite part of the show was her perfect Judy Garland shaggy dog story that came up unexpectedly during Spill The Tea. (You know how that game usually involves saying the first word that comes to mind when you see each photo? Yeah, that doesn't apply to Cloris. Quiet, Jeff. She's talking about Judy.)
