Melissa McCarthy & Kelly Clarkson Battle It Out In 'Gilmore Girls' Trivia

Melissa McCarthy is testing out her Gilmore Girls knowledge on The Kelly Clarkson Show – and she’s actually not too bad!

The 49-year-old actress starred as Sookie St. James on Gilmore Girls from 2000-2007, and in a trivia battle with Kelly Clarkson remembered more than we probably could about the WB series.

She was quizzed on the Gilmore’s Friday night dinners, Luke’s Diner and even how Rory broke her arm.

Melissa also revealed a behind the scenes story about Jackson’s proposal to Sookie.

“Fun fact: That was supposed to be at noon, and we shot at like one o’clock in the morning. So we were juts under like crazy klieg lights trying to make it look like daylight. So we couldn’t really look at each other because it was so bright,” she shared with Kelly.

Melissa McCarthy Recalls Being Mistaken for Amy Schumer During 'Ellen Show' Prank!

Melissa McCarthy is making an appearance on The Ellen Show, airing today.

During her appearance on the show, Ellen actually brought up what happened the last time she was on the show. During her last appearance, Ellen had her go to a local dry cleaners and play an epic prank where she fainted.

Well, Melissa recalled what happened when one of the dry cleaners patrons saw her faint: she started saying that Amy Schumer, not Melissa McCarthy, had fainted!

“What I heard right before [they called] 911 was: ‘Amy Schumer’s gone down! Amy Schumer’s on the ground!’” Melissa said. “And I was like, ‘Hey!’”

Melissa continued, “She called me Amy Schumer — which to me was my favorite part, what a compliment — but she called me Amy Schumer four or five times.”

“She actually did say she knew it was you but she just kept calling you Amy Schumer even though she — no, she knew it was you,” Ellen interjected. You can watch the September 2019 prank right here!

Check out videos from Melissa’s appearance!

Melissa McCarthy Joins Nicole Kidman in Hulu's 'Nine Perfect Strangers'

Melissa McCarthy has joined the cast of the upcoming Hulu show Nine Perfect Strangers.

Nicole Kidman is also part of the cast (and FYI, you won’t believe how much money Nicole is supposed to make per episode for Nine Perfect Strangers!)

The show is actually based on the book by the same name, which was written by “Big Little Lies” author Liane Moriarty.

Here’s a synopsis of the book: Nine people gather at a remote health resort. Some are here to lose weight, some are here to get a reboot on life, some are here for reasons they can’t even admit to themselves. Amidst all of the luxury and pampering, the mindfulness and meditation, they know these ten days might involve some real work. But none of them could imagine just how challenging the next ten days are going to be.

Nicole will play the resort’s director, with Melissa set to portray one of the strangers named Francis, Variety reports.
