Celebrity Q&A
March 6, 2013
Post a comment

Q: Where is your partner, Teller?

A: He wanted to go the Galapagos, and he wanted to direct “The Tempest” in Vegas.

Q: Even though you’re the partner in your duo who does the talking publicly, you seem pretty quiet. Are you?

A: My mom and dad never raised their voices. It was unheard of, and I have raised my children as such.

Q: You seem melancholy. Is it tough to be away from your family?

A: Doing “Celebrity Apprentice,” I am away for four weeks. My son asked if he could be on it to see Daddy. Before this, only two weeks was the longest time (he was separated from family). I still won’t go longer than two weeks.

Q: Could you explain why you have a red nail?

A: That’s my dad’s ring and my mom’s nail polish. It was done originally to mock my mother, then it turned into affection, and now it is a tribute.

Q: We’re riding on an open-air bus, and people are pointing up at us, taking photos; some are screaming. Does it feel a little like you are in a circus?

A: In 1971, they did the Loud family. With the writers strike, they created this form of unscripted television -- for better or worse. And I fear for worse. The early part of this century will be judged by this. If it were the ’60s and ’70s, I would have wanted to be on “The Beverly Hillbillies” and “The Monkees.” This show defines our time. It is ego depletion.
