They say you should always write what you know. Second to that would be to always give clues in game shows about what you know. And one would think that former Beverly Hills 90210 star Shannen Doherty would be able to describe a certain part of the female anatomy to another woman with little trouble. And yet...well, just watch.
If we’re being honest, if I was the guessing contestant in this game, it would probably take me a few tries to get to uterus as well, but nothing Doherty said in the clip (from Zap2It) would have brought me any closer to the correct guess. But I suppose “It’s inside,” would have clued me in to it not being her outer thighs or her pubis.
Power to the giggling Doherty for continuing through it, though, as she clearly just wanted to run away and hide her face, which she did immediately after the round was over. We should all be so lucky as to have a Craig Ferguson to use as a shame shield. His face here was absolutely priceless.
Ferguson, a master at pointing out the ludicrousness behind things, gives the perfect piece of silver lining criticism to the actress after she was done hiding.
’It’s not your vagina’ is a great clue. Many things aren’t.
This is the second game show moment involving a vagina that’s come up this week, as just the other day a Family Feud contestant destroyed Steve Harvey by referring to it as “the lower front.” We have to assume that there won’t be anything involving genitalia appearing on The Price is Right, as that might involve breaking a law or two.
Now in Season 2, Celebrity Name Game will soon feature such entertainers as Candace Cameron Bure, Courtney Cox, David Arquette, “Weird” Al Yankovic, Mario Lopez, Randy Jackson, Cat Deeley, Kate Walsh and more. Meanwhile, Doherty was one-half of the GAC reality show Off the Map earlier this year, will reprise her role for Kevin Smith’s upcoming MallBrats, and will star in James Franco’s delayed biopic Bukowski whenever it comes out. Not to be left out, Ferguson will expand his hosting career with a new show on History Channel called Join or Die.
