Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth was nothing short of adorable on the “Late Show with David Letterman” Tuesday night.
But she did get a little dirty as she chatted with Letterman, although it wasn't on purpose.
When discussing her love of Starbucks and the power of Twitter, Chenoweth let the "past tense of the word twit," as TV Squad so helpfully put it, slip - but the misused word was quickly bleeped out.
“I knew, I knew I was gonna say that. It slipped right out!” Chenoweth said in an innocent southern voice. Letterman responded, "Now I think I might try [Twitter]!"
Chenoweth went on to tell the story of an experience she had with a very rude Starbucks employee. After she was mistreated by the employee, Chenoweth told Letterman that she shared her experience - including the name of the employee and the specific Starbucks location - via Twitter.
“So you reported her on your Twitter,” Letterman asked. Chenoweth nodded her head and confirmed, “on my twit.”
Interestingly, the actress misused the word for “tweet” in a variety of forms - another less offensive one being "I twitted"– Chenoweth had a few revealing moments due to the very short length of her dress.
But luckily she became aware of the situation as she glanced at the monitor. “I just realized that if I am not careful, I could do a Sharon Stone,” she said in reference to the racy “Basic Instinct” scene.
