Though reporters often have good intentions, sometimes, they embarrass themselves beyond repair. At the 2018 Golden Globes, Giuliana Rancic asked actress and writer Issa Rae what she’d call her memoir. An innocent question, really…
But wait…Rae already released her memoir, published in 2015. The book is called “The Misadventures of an Awkward Black Girl” and was a “New York Times” bestseller.
A Mother-Daugther Brawl Moment
This awkward red carpet moment happened with small talk. A reporter had asked actress Melanie Griffith if she had seen "Fifty Shades of Grey" yet. She repeatedly said she didn't need to see the film when eventually, her daughter, actress Dakota Johnson snapped, "Alright, you don't have to see it!" She said as she rolled her eyes.
It doesn't matter who your mother is; the moment she annoys you in public, you're going to let her know. This uncomfortable and awkward exchange went on to inspire many memes. And everyone knows, the moment you become a meme, you're locked in history forever.
Mayim Bialik Defends Her Intelligence
At the 2014 Sag Awards, a journalist asked "The Big Bang Theory" actress and neuroscientist Mayim Bialik, "Being on the Big Bang Theory, how many people—not that you aren’t a genius—think that you can solve calculus at the drop of a hat?"
Bialik automatically clapped back to the question with this brilliant answer, "I was trained in calculus for several years. I’m a neuroscientist—you may not have known that?"
Debra Messing Drags E!
Actress Debra Messing made a statement without even meaning to. At the 2018 Golden Globes, she called out E! for not paying their female co-hosts the same as they pay their male co-hosts. She unknowingly said this to an E! correspondent, Giuliana Rancic.
Messing was referring to former E! co-host Catt Sadler. In December 2017, Sadler quit the network after learning that her male colleague, Jason Kennedy, earned nearly twice her salary.
Giuliana Rancic Dismisses Emilia Clarke
Giuliana Rancic was in the middle of interviewing Emilia Clarke when she spotted Heidi Klum making her way over to talk. The E! co-host told the "Game of Thrones" actress, with whom she'd been talking, that she was letting her go.
Apparently, Clarke didn't hear her because she stayed in place. "You can go," Rancic repeated. Though she was polite, there was a very awkward vibe left between them as Clarke walked away.
