Default Leah's Answers: KoQ Edition

Here ya go peeps!
I LMAO at some of these answers!
BTW, she knows me too well.


Leah's answers in purple. Natch

Questions and Answers:

dcunited11:

Leah, there have been many guest stars on KOQ. I think my favorite has to be Doris Roberts...especially when she taught Carrie how to clean, very funny! Who is/was your favorite guest star?

I really cant tell you guys that I have a favorite. I mean, yes Doris Roberts was great, Willaim Hurt…. So many. It always meant a lot to us when people guested on our show. Everyone always brought something and not just stars…

ristifer:

Are there any particular episodes of KoQ that reflect how your personal life is at
times?

There were many shows that reflected what was going on at home. That is why the KofQ’s was so special. It was about family and interpersonal relationships in general.

jmac:

1) I am sure you and Kevin were nervous getting started on KOQ and probably wondering how the show was going to do in the ratings.
Was there a particular episode you filmed early in KOQ where you went home that night and said " we are gonna be a hit".
An episode that took all doubts and fears away and you knew that you had something exceptional on your hands.

2) Were there any storylines or angles that now as you look back, you wish KOQ's would have done with you and the cast?

1) No actually~ we never felt that we were a bonafide hit…. Until the final season did we really sit back and say “Wow, we made it this long”. As a matter of fact it wasn’t until this year that I have seen how much people really loved our show. Almost daily does someone come up to me and say “ I really miss you guys”…. It has taken this long for me to see how very special this show was.
2) I wish we had done a story where Doug questions the relationship. Ultimately they did in the last episode, but I wish we had done a two parter earlier in the series.


Clif:

Leah here is my KoQ question: You/Carrie wore so many hot outfits on the show. I especially loved the figure-hugging jeans you wore through all seasons of the show. Very nice! My question is, how much input did you have on the wardrobe that you wore as Carrie? Did you have to wear what the costumers gave you to wear or did you have any choices or input in the matter? Were Carrie's outfits in any way a reflection of your actual personal style of dress when at home or out running errands etc.?

Every show has a stylist and a costumer. So one designs the show and the other shops and helps you put it all togther. At the beginning of every season we would go shopping and pick clothes that we all liked as well as what was right for Carrie. The outfits that were most like Leah was the casual stuff Carrie wore around the house. That was stuff that I really loved because I was the most comfortable.

Ireneparalegal:

1) How was it having your spouse, Angelo, appear on King of Queens? BTW, I loved when he was on the show.

Regarding the finale, was the baby we saw a boy or a girl?

Like your character Carrie, I too am a paralegal. How was it decided Carrie would be a paralegal?

Do you realize how devastated I was as were so many fans when the show finally ended? It was thee perfect show. It is right up there with I Love Lucy.

2) What was it like doing the episode POLE LOX? Did you have a lot of fun rehearsing and filming it? It seems like Kevin really practiced a lot to master the pole. LOL

1)We loved having Angelo around. Between him and Jerry they were the only two who knew their lines and were professional

Do you know I don’t even know??? !!! I want to say boy. Not sure.

That was a writers’ decision.

Yes, we all feel the same way. And I thank you for the comparison to a great show like “ I Love Lucy”

2) Well, here is what you didn’t know about Pole Lox… the “ Pole Teacher” showed up for me and Kev to warm up. I of course was like “ Babe, I don’t think I need to warm up, I can work a pole”…. So, when it came time for me to rehearse the Pole scene, I pulled on the pole and wouldn’t ya know it, I PULLED MY NECK OUT!!!!! So, with my tail between my legs, I begged her to warm me up properly… but it was really hard! Now, Kevin didn’t rehearse it at all and I was like “ Kev, you need to go upside down, don’t you want to warm up and let her teach you”? He said no that he would do it on tape day in front of the audience…. No one knew what he was going to do. So, what you saw on that TV was Kevin doing that for the first time and he was HILARIOUS!!!!! I laughed so hard I cried. I ruined a few takes and then I started to just turn my head. But let me tell you that pole ‘aint easy!


luciay:

Wondering if a lot of the storylines were based on your life & Kevins?
Seems like they could of been, very down to earth just like you. When you were in scenes with Angelo it just was so real! You two are great together!
You are a very talented and beautiful person, and your family is great, Stay real, just the way you are!!! Only a good hearted & caring person would be so nice to her fans! Very rare!

All the shows were based on the writers’ lives. They were all married and or with kids. So they knew these characters well. Also, Kevin came up with a lot of ideas as well.

ILoveLeahRemini:

If CBS for some reason wanted to bring back KoQ for another season, and the rest of the cast is all coming back & on board. Pretty much picking up where KoQ left off.

Being where you are right now, with your desire to focus on your daughter, would you do it?

What if they wanted five seasons?

OF COURSE I WOULD - TEN SEASONS MORE!!! It wouldn’t matter - Sofia would just come to work with me!

jpcanes:

Was wondering if you still have your director's chair from KoQ?

Also, what was it like to work with Michael Weithorn? Seems like such a cool guy.
He answered some questions on the KoQ Sony forum last year.

And, can you tell us the significance/meaning/story behind the infamous: HEY EDDIE!!
Many have always wanted to know.

I think I still have my director’s chair unless you and Peggy stole it!!! and I loved Michael…. We had our ups and downs, but ultimately, I came to learn, he was always right I miss them all…

Yes, I can answer the “Hey Eddie” origination. A year or so before Kevin sold the show to CBS, Kevin and his manager were in a diner somewhere in NYC. A guy walked in wearing a warm up suit like in the Sopranos… he had a pinky ring on, the whole “look” and Kev and his manager just said he looks like an “Eddie”…. And in a very thick NY accent starting saying “Hey Eddie” - We did this on the set for 9 years!

A few things Leah said, I will comment on:
I wish we had done a story where Doug questions the relationship. Ultimately they did in the last episode, but I wish we had done a two parter earlier in the series.


That would have been a nice idea !

OF COURSE I WOULD - TEN SEASONS MORE!!! It wouldn’t matter - Sofia would just come to work with me!

That shows this lovely woman misses the show as much as we miss her !

No actually~ we never felt that we were a bonafide hit…. Until the final season did we really sit back and say “Wow, we made it this long”. As a matter of fact it wasn’t until this year that I have seen how much people really loved our show. Almost daily does someone come up to me and say “ I really miss you guys”…. It has taken this long for me to see how very special this show was.

Doing this thing day in and day out, I guess sometimes you dont really have time to set back and take in what is going on. I think we are all guilty of that at times in life !


Now, Kevin didn’t rehearse it at all and I was like “ Kev, you need to go upside down, don’t you want to warm up and let her teach you”? He said no that he would do it on tape day in front of the audience…. No one knew what he was going to do. So, what you saw on that TV was Kevin doing that for the first time and he was HILARIOUS!!!!! I laughed so hard I cried. I ruined a few takes and then I started to just turn my head.

Wow, what we saw was him on it for the first time.
That right there is classic "behinds the scenes stuff" Leah shared with her LRG !
