Turns out teeny tiny songstress Kristin Chenoweth and I have something in common.
It’s not our singing ability — which I’m sure was your first thought — and it’s certainly not our size. (I have shoes bigger than her.) And while it’s true we both love musical theatre, I’m talking more ‘guilty pleasures’ here.
Kristin and I are both fans of chain restaurants.
She waxed poetic for her love of ‘em on Conan last night — Olive Garden, Outback Steakhouse, Applebees. He called her a ‘cheap date.’ I call her a comrade in arms.
One of her favorites and mine?
Grilled cheese on Texas toast, tater tots, and a grape slush is my favorite meal at Sonic. But we don’t have Sonics in Manhattan. Apparently LA doesn’t have them, either. So Kristin and I both suffer their national ads. And dream.
See? Celebrities are just like us.

The Internet never fails to entertain me, especially the things some website editors will do to ‘make our lives easier.’
My latest favorite? Slashfood.com tested all thirteen appetizers on the menu at Applebee’s to see which ones were the best bet on your next visit.
Talk about taking one for the team.
And their findings?
Applebee’s does Chicken Wings right. Their “Classic Wings” were declared the winner by the Slashfood editors, who found them to be ‘meaty and well sauced, in both the Classic Buffalo and Hot Buffalo flavors.’ Applebee’s “Boneless Wings” were the runner-up.
The one app that you should probably avoid? Applebee’s “Chili Cheese Nachos,” which SlashFood described as a ‘bland-o-rama.’
My favorite appetizer at Applebee’s? The free one. That’s right. Pretty much every time I have visited this fine establishment, something has gone awry, and a free app was mine.
Food late? Free app. Order entered wrong? Free app. Order delivered wrong? Free app. It’s Applebee’s favorite form of apology.
Now, that’s tasty.
