Busy Philipps Fights Back Tears During an Emotional ‘Busy Tonight’ Set Visit
Busy Philipps is coming to your living room! The 39-year-old, who has been busy promoting her new memoir, This Will Only Hurt A Little, will be adding the role of “Talk Show Host” to her resume when Busy Tonight debuts on E! on Sunday, October 28. And if you think you’re excited for the big premiere, just wait until you see how the actress reacted during a recent set visit.
Cameras followed the Cougar Town star as she got to see her set for the very first time, and she could hardly believe her eyes. “I’ve been doing my promotional tour for 11 days, for the book and the TV show, but everything has been happening without me. I want to look! I’m not good at this,” she joked, clearly excited to catch her first glimpse of her new TV home.
Walking onto the set, Philipps was overcome with emotion, gushing, “Oh my god! This looks just like the drawing!” Fighting back tears, she added, “This is crazy. Oh my god, you guys. [It’s] all happening!”
And it’s all happening with serious star power to boot! Busy Tonight will kick off on Sunday, October 28, at 10pm ET with guest Mindy Kaling, who’ll be chatting about her newest role in Hulu’s Four Weddings and a Funeral. Monday will see Vanessa Hudgens stopping by, followed by Kristen Bell on Tuesday, and the one and only Megan Mullally on Wednesday.
E! has also confirmed that Julia Roberts, Kim Kardashian, Tracee Ellis Ross, John Stamos, Olivia Munn, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and many more have already accepted their invitations to sit down with the newest Queen of Late Night. We can’t wait!
