Our favorite moment at last night’s Tony Awards didn’t really happen. We wished actress, Judith Light would have said, “after years of making some really bad TV sitcoms, look who’s FINALLY the boss!” when she won the Tony for Best Featured Actress in a play for her role as an acerbic alcoholic in “Other Desert Cities.” After all, she beat out Linda Emond, Spencer Kayden, Celia Keenan-Bolger and Condola Rashad.
Of course, Judith Light already has two Emmy Awards for playing Karen Wolek on “One Life to Live” but it still would have made for great TV!
In Jon Robin Baitz’s play about a dysfunctional, politically divided family wrestling with a deep secret in their past, Light plays a lefty aunt determined to stir the pot.
The former “Who’s the Boss?” and “Ugly Betty” star was also nominated last year for her performance as Vince Lombardi long-suffering wife in “Lombardi.” The stage has become Light’s new home after leaving Broadway in the mid-1970s after appearances in “Herzl” and “A Doll’s House.”
The happy healthcare host, Mr. Divabetic stops by the 66th Annual Tony® Awards at the Beacon Theater in New York to talk about divas, dazzle and diabetes. Although he didn’t experience any wardrobe malfunctions in the fruit suit, he still caused quite a stir in attempt to glamorize good health!
