Busy Philipps Reveals Her Dream Talk Show Guest is Oprah!

Busy Philipps sits down for an interview on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday (October 17) in New York City.

The 39-year-old actress opened up about her new memoir “This Will Only Hurt a Little” and her upcoming E! talk show Busy Tonight.

Stephen asked who her dream guest is and at first, Busy didn’t want to give an answer.

“Well you know this I think, because you’re a host, but I feel like when you start talking in terms of dream guests, then other people’s feelings get hurt,” Busy said. When Stephen clearly didn’t agree, she said, “Okay, it’s Oprah. It’s obviously Oprah!”

Busy said that her dream is to go to one of Oprah‘s harvest days and the question she would ask the legendary talk show host is, “Am I living my best life?”

Busy Philipps Asked Husband Marc Silverstein for a Divorce Back in 2016: 'I Was Done'

Busy Philipps and Marc Silverstein were this close to splitting up less than two years ago!

“A month [after the 2016 presidential election], I told Marc I wanted a divorce. I was done. I couldn’t do it anymore,” Busy writes before adding that things between the couple “hadn’t been great” for “a while.”

“He didn’t let me talk when we were out with friends. Or worse, when it was just us, he didn’t speak to me at all,” Busy continues. “I’d start to do a test when we were alone in the car together, where I wouldn’t say anything until he did, just to see how long it would take him to talk to me. Some days we rode the whole way in silence.”

Busy goes on to reveal that she even started getting feelings for another man – and told Marc that she was “leaving him.”

“But he didn’t want to get divorced. He wanted a chance to change,” Busy writes while sharing that they both started going to therapy – together and separate. “He said I owed our family that.”

Busy and Marc married back in 2007 and are parents to daughters Birdie, 10, and Cricket, 5.
