Question: My husband says that Karen of Will & Grace appeared in a Seinfeld episode as one of George's girlfriends. I don't think so. Can you verify this? Thanks.
Answer: Get ready to change that line of thinking then, Lili. Hubby's right on this one.
Megan Mullally, who picked up an Outstanding Supporting Actress Emmy in 2000 for her work as Karen Walker, snotty socialite and assistant to Grace (Debra Messing) on the hit comedy, did indeed lend her talent to the Seinfeld crew in a Season 4 episode. As hubby says, she played Betsy, one of George Costanza's (Jason Alexander) brief love interests (if the word "love" ever applied to him) in the episode "The Implant."
If you recall, the main story was that Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld) dumped a girlfriend (Teri Hatcher) after Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) convinced him the woman's breasts weren't real. Meanwhile, George and Betsy traveled to Detroit for the wake of Betsy's aunt's wake, prompting George to try to get a copy of the woman's death certificate so he could score a discount on his ticket.
Yeesh. And I thought I had a history of relationship shenanigans.
