Okay, it isn’t Dionne Warwick but Bridesmaids’ Maya Rudolph playing her.
In the Tina Fey-penned ‘Kimmy Does a Puzzle’ ep, Titus Andromedon (Titus Burgess) comes clean to Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) about the time he was understudying Warwick on a cruise ship musical and how an accident forced him to, ahem, eat her.
Long story short, he didn’t of course, and Warwick is still alive and kicking — hosting a telethon for a hurricane relief. The joke is that the ex-SNL-er looks nothing like Whitney Houston’s aunt (inset).
That, and the off-the-wall things she says. During the telethon, Warwick says, “You know, some people say global warming is a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese, but I say, ‘Show me the receipts!’ Because why would Xi Jinping want to flood my basement and rust my Bowflex? To what end?”
