Kristin Decided Not To Go On Family Feud Again

Kristin was on Celebrity Family Feud and got a funny question about kissing. 

She quickly buzzed in to answer but said something silly that rhymed with “heinous.” 

Everyone, including the host, was surprised. Her answer was wrong, and her team lost that round. 

Later, when she discussed it on The Jennifer Hudson Show, she felt embarrassed and said she would never go on Family Feud again to avoid more embarrassment. 

The video of her funny moments got lots of views on YouTube. 

Looking back, she wishes she had said something normal like Cheek, arm, or forehead. 

When she talked about it on the Jennifer Hudson show, they both laughed about it. 

The host, Steve Harvey, reacted slowly and humorously to her unexpected answer. He even said nice things about her to the audience. 

Even though it was funny and famous on the internet, Kristin decided not to go on Family Feud again. 

Kristin Unknowingly Dated Prince 

In The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Kristin talks about how once she went on two dates with the famous musician Prince without even realizing it. 

Prince’s manager and assistant contacted her, and she drove to Prince’s huge and museum-like home in her Honda CR-V. 

She got to play one of Prince’s guitars, which had scratches from Elvis’s belt. 

Prince even showed her performance on TV and said her singing inspired him. 

She doesn’t often share this story but greatly admires Prince. 

Kristin also talks about how she made a holiday album even though she initially wanted to do a country album. 

Her team suggested a Christmas album, and even though she wasn’t too excited about it initially, she thought it could bring joy and happiness during tough times. 

Jimmy Fallon appreciates her choice, and they talk about her album, Happiness Is… Christmas!
