What to Watch: “Close Talker, Episode 3: Julie Bowen”

We all know what a comic genius Julie Bowen is when she’s ruling the roost as working mom Claire Dunphy on Modern Family or crushing categories left and right on $100,000 Pyramid (if you didn’t the episode, check out this video clip).But I don’t think anything could have prepared this super-talented Emmy-winning actress for what went down between the two of us on the latest episode of Close Talker with Michael Strahan. If she wasn’t so great at taking (and telling) a joke—we sort of tricked her into doing the episode by convincing her we had “a surprise” for her—I’m not sure I could have gone through it. Let’s just say it will be a while before either one of us eats onions again. Check it out for yourself to see what happens when I get up way too close and personal with Julie Bowen. (Safe word: “Bubbles.”)
