AceShowbiz - %cMegyn Kelly%'s new NBC daytime program had a rocky start. %cJane Fonda% and %cDebra Messing% were dismayed over the host's questions and comments on the show that premiered on September 25 to replace "Today's Take". The two actresses were among Kelly's first guests on the show.
79-year-old Jane Fonda dropped by Kelly's show along with %cRobert Redford% to promote their newest film "Our Souls at Night". The actress shut down the "Megyn Kelly Today" host when she attempted to steer the conversation towards plastic surgery instead of discussing the upcoming movie.
"You've been an example to everyone in how to age beautifully and with strength and unapologetically," Kelly complimented her guest before firing off question about going under the knife. "You admit that you've had work done, which I think is to your credit. And you look amazing. Why did you say, I read that you said, you're not proud to admit you had work done. Why not?"
Fonda looked unhappy as she gave Kelly a look and said, "We really want to talk about that right now?" Kelly tried to ease the tension, "Well one of the things people think when they look at you is how amazing you look," to which Fonda responded, "Well thanks." The actress quickly added, "Good attitude, good posture, take care of myself - but let me tell you why I love this movie, 'Our Souls at Night', rather than plastic surgery."
In a separate appearance, Debra Messing was joined by the cast of the "Will & Grace" revival. Kelly invited a "Will & Grace" big fan on stage and asked him if he's gay because of his love for %cEric McCormack%'s Will Truman. "Is it true that you became a lawyer, and became gay, because of Will?" she asked.
"I look at Will Truman, I'm like, 'He has it made': lawyer, best apartment in New York City, and gay? Come on, trifecta," the fan responded. After giving the fan tickets to Los Angeles to attend a live taping of the sitcom, the host said, "I don't know about the lawyer thing, but I think the 'Will & Grace' thing and the gay thing is going to work out great!"
Messing later expressed her regret for coming to Kelly's show. When a fan asked her on Instagram why she would appear on the show, the actress replied, "Honestly I didn't know it was [Megyn Kelly] until that morning. The itinerary just said Today Show appearance. Regret going on. Dismayed by her comments."
