For nearly four years and over 350 interviews, Cat Greenleaf has been welcoming celebrities to her stoop in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn for “Talk Stoop,” where they’ve dished on career highlights, current events and their latest projects.
Now Greenleaf is bringing her stoop to USA Daytime. Every weekday from 11 a.m. ET to 3 p.m. ET, Cat’s interviews will air in short nuggets in between your favorite USA daily programming. She tells Zap2it that it’s definitely not your average talk show.
“Part of what makes it so fun is it is outside, there is a dog,
there is life happening around you,” says Greenleaf. “It is not a sanitized environment.
The coffee’s always spilling out of the mug, crazy things happen. …
Certainly more fun for me to make than a classic talk show. I’m really
happy for the set-up that we have.”
Above is an exclusive sneak peek at Greenleaf’s interview with “Modern Family” star Sarah Hyland, who says her real-life boyfriend “hates Haley,” her character on the show. If she were like Haley, he would break up with her immediately. Heh.
Greenleaf teases for us that in addition to the “Modern Family” cast, upcoming USA Daytime guests include James Spader, Michael J. Fox, Orlando Bloom, Martha Stewart, Andre Agassi and Blair Underwood, who is “so kind and sweet and smart. The guy is so smart!”
And while we posit that interviewing Martha Stewart could be kind of intimidating, Greenleaf says that she “really enjoyed” that one.
“[Martha Stewart] came in and totally made fun of my stoop the whole time. She made fun of my planters, my flower pots, how narrow it is, the fact that I don’t know how to cook. It was so funny, I had to give it to her,” says Greenleaf.
We also wondered who is a person Greenleaf wants to interview but hasn’t gotten the chance to yet and she gave us a surprising and sweet answer.
“My dad. You know dads of a certain generation, they’re not the chattiest. … I would really like to get out of his head what he thinks about how our family was and how we are and how I’m doing now, I’d like to hear that,” she says.
Look for Cat every weekday on USA Network, bringing you the latest news from all your favorite stars.
