‘As you guys know the question was “what is something about you that would shock me”. Anything would’ve shocked him so me being me – the comedian, stirrer that I am – I thought, “What is something that’ll really shock this guy?”

‘I started telling him I went through a phase in my life, as most girls do, when they’re young adults. I was like 18 at the time. I started experimenting with girls and had crushes on girls.’

‘I argued back and forth with him and said, “I don’t label myself as a lesbian nor was I… I don’t feel right about that.”‘
