Backstage was Kristin’s niece, Zoe, who had just graduated from high school. Zoe is soon heading to the University of South Carolina to study political science. Kristin said that her niece had given The Best Man her stamp of approval. However, Kristin confronted Josh about why he didn’t come backstage to say ‘hi’ after recently seeing the show.

Josh said that he didn’t want to disrupt the cast, and that sometimes going backstage can be awkward. Kelly agreed; once, she and Mark headed backstage after a show (she didn’t say which) and the cast seemed so tired that she felt badly for annoying them. Kristin said, no way, not at The Best Man– every night backstage is a big party, and everyone’s invited!

Kristin said that her grandmother, who is from North Carolina,  is very healthy. Kelly pointed out that there is just “something” about Southern women.


Soon, the whole family will gather to celebrate Gemma’s birthday. Kristin said that the party won’t be too big, because after all, the baby won’t remember it– as long as she gets some nice pictures, she’s happy.

Kristin Davis: John Stamos Co-Star in The Best Man”

Kristin, Kelly and Josh marveled at the amazing cast of actors in The Best Man. John Stamos just recently joined the cast, so Kelly asked Kristin if she was a big fan of John’s show “Full House.”  Shockingly, Kristin said that she had never seen it. Even more shockingly, she said that John had never seen “Sex and the City!” 

Kelly did not believe that John had never seen “Sex and the City.” She thinks that he is a secret fan who has seen every episode. She wants to invite him onto the show and give him a lie detector test!
