Well, this isn't any fun at all.
I've just heard from reliable sources that Kristin Chenoweth, the beloved Broadway superstar who is a series regular on ABC's much buzzed about new series Pushing Daisies, slipped and fell at home down a concrete staircase and fractured a few ribs.
Sources tell me she's recovering and is such a trouper that she's determined not to affect Daisies' production schedule. However, producers have insisted on moving around a few scenes in order to give her as much rest as possible. Kristin is back on set today.
Just last week, I was inside the "pie hole" (Pushing Daisies' truly fantastic restaurant set) interviewing Ms. Chenoweth, and I can tell you that she is just about the sweetest, spunkiest and most glowingly positive person you could ever meet. Here's wishing her a very fast and thorough recovery.
In the meantime, let's keep our favorite actresses away from slippery staircases, okay? First Jenna Fischer, now Kristin Chenoweth. All you sweet and talented TV women, please, be careful out there!
