Cheyenne Jackson Explains How Whoopi Goldberg Introduced Him to Using a Bidet
October 20, 2022
Cheyenne Jackson is so fresh and so clean with help from Whoopi Goldberg!
On Thursday’s episode of “The Jennifer Hudson Show,” the “Call Me Kat” star talked to Jennifer about starring in the 2007 Broadway production of “Xanadu,” based on the 1980 film of the same name.
“It was my big break,” the actor said about the musical.
In addition to wearing short shorts, Cheyenne was on roller skates and says he “fell all the time” onstage.
“It’s not ‘The Color Purple,’” he added, referencing JHud’s 2015 Broadway debut, in which she played the character of Shug Avery. (For Jenn’s work, she won the 2017 Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album.)

In July 2007, Cheyenne and his castmates were joined by Whoopi — who like Jenn, has also achieved the prestigious EGOT.
Though Whoopi did not skate, she threw amazing parties at her place, and at one shindig, she allowed Cheyenne to hold her Oscar.
However, that wasn’t the only prized possession of Whoopi’s that he got to enjoy.
After Whoopi brought him down a hallway, Cheyenne thought he saw a “fabulous toilet.”

Whoopi then clarified that it was a bidet, a bowl designed to wash one’s… you know what.
“‘Go sit on it, it’s warm,’” Whoopi told him.
Lo and behold, the bidet was indeed “warm” and “amazing”!
“Every time I sit [on a bidet], I think of Whoopi,” he said.
