For a certain subset of people (me and, I don’t know, maybe one other idiot), “legendary comic actress Carol Burnett reenacts a scene from Vanderpump Rules with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live!” is a sentence that could only be the product of a mad lib where every space for a noun required you to name a favorite thing. Lucky us, it’s actually a reality.


During her WWHL appearance last night, Burnett took on the role of a lifetime while participating in the recurring segment “Clubhouse Playhouse.” More unstable than Miss Hannigan, more woebegone than Winnifred in Once Upon a Mattress, and more physically demanding than all of the characters she played on The Carol Burnett Show, Burnett was playing Kristen Doute.

The original scene, you surely recall, took place on the beach shortly after Kristen had performed in her first sketch comedy show—something that longtime rival Ariana was not happy about.

The real shocking takeaway from this is that no one—not even Carol Burnett—plays Kristen better than Kristen.
