Debra Messing and Eric McCormack were on the same stage Monday night for the first time in six years and their timing is still as flawless as ever. RumorFix was there.
The Will & Grace stars were one of the highlights at Trevor Live New York, which raises funds for The Trevor Project, the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to gay youth.
Eric, who is starring in Broadway’s Best Man, congratulated Debra on the success of SMASH and joked, “Who would have thought you would star in a show even gayer [than Will & Grace]?”
Debra noted that Vice President Joe Biden recently credited the comedy with changing opinion about gay rights. Taking credit, Debra joked, “I don’t know if I had the endorsement in my mind when I was playing the character, but it’s definitely my subtext.
The comic duo lamented that they’ve never been invited to the White House. In her classic Grace delivery, Debra shouted, “At least a f**king tea with Michelle [Obama]!”
The star who just filed for divorce has a six-month-old son and told the crowd, “I’d be devastated if my son grows up to be a hetero.”
Eric, who has a nine-year-old son, said said the same thing, “I’d hope my son turns out to be gay.y.” His joke continued talking about the things his son would miss out on — “Parades he’ll never march in. Floats he won’t ride shirtless on. Brown rice and skinless chicken breasts he’ll never eat.
