The cast of Will & Grace made the press rounds this past week in London with the show’s ninth season recently premiering on Channel 5 in the U.K.

 

During a live event last week, the foursome were asked about the many famous faces that appeared on the sitcom over the years and Sean Hayes told a story about when Madonna guest starred in Season Five as Karen’s new roommate, Liz—and how she served him some major shade during rehearsals for the episode.

“She was wonderful. She came in, did the table read, and was great,” said Hayes. “I know she was nervous, so to make her feel good I was praising her. I was like ’That’s funny when you do that!’ and ‘That’s really great!’”

Then Hayes added: “She said, quote: ’Thank you. I live for your approval.'”

“I was like, ’Oh my God, my idol, she hates me!'”

Aww that’s really cute. I love Will & Grace...well, Eric and Debra, of course. Madonna should appear on the show as Madonna and not some random character. But I remember I read somewhere that she agreed to do the show only if she doesn’t have to play herself...a shame, it would have been hilarious to have the real M with a dry humour/bitchy attitude get into a fight with Karen or Grace.

It seemed like they weren’t impressed with her or am I crazy?

I get the same impression. They talk like they dislike her or am I mistaken?

Megan (Karen) talked about how both Debra and the other guy had a problem with M forgetting their real names and she just called them by their character names.  Megan herself thought it was silly of them to have a problem, she loved Madonna, talked highly of her.

And I don’t think they dislike her, they did an episode praising Madonna being there for the gay community in the recent season.

I know, but its probably due to the screenwriters, not the cast. And there were some tired "jokes" with her age, how she looks... As a whole there was a shade too.

I hear you but they were making fun of themselves too, them getting old also. 

Can’t find the clip where Megan talked about when M was on the show, she praised her.

When Madonna did Will and Grace, she only wanted to do scenes with Karen, so maybe they were offended by that?

I hope Eric doesn’t really think that if it wasn’t for guy telling madonna not to, madonna would have Erics name tattooed on her body.

funny how Madonna was going out of her way to tell them she doesn't know them, every day, in what were supposed to be her most "spiritual" years, and you're talking about their egos :lol:

well it is their account of things, @ which even Megan Mullaly rolls her eyes...

& we all know M never could have said that Rachel was her kaballah name, since

it is Esther.

Megan thought herself they were being silly over it. 🤷🏻‍♀️ So really it’s their egos.

Megan will be rolling her eyes at this all. Also it’s making headlines, she’s so “irrelevant”
