Joel McHale got caught up with a friend at “The Jennifer Hudson Show”! Both the “DC’s Stargirl” actor and “RuPaul’s Drag Race” alum Shangela appeared on the same episode in October, and they had a fond reunion backstage!
The two previously worked together in a Season 3 episode of “Community.” Shangela and Joel took to the internet to share a performance of “Pocket Full of Hawthornes,” a song featured on the NBC sitcom.
During his appearance on the show, Tony Hale spoke about his unlikely friendship with Broadway con Liza Minelli, who played his love interest on “Arrested Development.”
“Lisa took my wife and I out to lunch, and she was talking about this concert she just did at Radio City Music Hall,” Tony recalled. She brought up her famous, very fast-paced song “Liza with a Z,” and he admitted he wasn’t familiar. She then immediately bust out singing it perfectly!
“A lot of icons like that, they’re kind of difficult, but she is the kindest, most gracious person — like you,” he said to JHud.
