Kristin Chenoweth is one of the most beloved stars for her amazing singing voice, her cuteness and her immense love of animals. Well, the actress might make some animal activist not so happy for recently eating sea urchin on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”

While speaking with Leno, Chenoweth revealed how she will not eat any type of fish, “I hate sushi . . . It looks like it’s wrapped in plastic  . . . I won’t ever eat fish. I hate the smell, taste, texture, all of it and I told you I would only eat sushi if you made a donation to my charity Maddie’s Corner [which rescues stray cats and dogs] . . . But you have not done that.”

Leno then made a wager with the petite actress. If she ate sea urchin, he would donate $500 to her charity.

Well, squeamishly she obliged and sucked down the seafood. She gagged and screamed, “That tastes like crap.”

Leno upped his donation to $1,000 for Chenoweth’s sacrifice.

Hmm . . . this all seems a little hypocritical, no? Eating animals to raise money for an animal charity doesn’t really make sense.

Hopefully next time the Broadway star will choose a more animal-friendly way to raise money for her valuable charity.

    Or maybe next time, Jay could not be a dick and ask his guest to eat something they said they didn’t like.

    What a jerk. Would he ask someone to beat a dog in exchange for a donation to their favorite animal charity? To smoke a cigarette for an anti-cancer donation?

      She could have said no.

    Agree 100% with glorybug.

    I can’t stand Jay Leno. He’s not funny and he’s obviously a huge ASS!


If you only want a less-cruel turkey industry, you don’t give a shit about turkeys

There’s more than enough out their promoting the use of animals already- can’t animal rights activists agree to be the ones who say stop it and mean it?


Vandalism and aggression won’t help veganism

These acts of intimidation and aggression don’t change public perspective on veganism for the better, and that’s the only thing that will help animals.
