Aisha Tyler Diss

What a low blow, Aisha! In a new interview, ‘The Talk’ star was asked about being given the wrong envelope as a presenter at the Daytime Emmys in June, and she totally slammed soap actresses in her response!

Aisha Tyler is a daytime TV talk show host (and the voice of a character on FX’s Archer), she apparently puts herself above daytime TV actors.

Aisha Tyler Slams Soap Opera Actors

Aisha revealed her low thoughts of soap opera stars while being interviewed by Andy Cohen on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live on July 11. Andy asked her about the Daytime Emmys mixup from a month before, when Aisha was forced to ad-lib after she was given the envelope for the next category, not the one she was supposed to be reading.

“They’ve never given out the wrong envelope in the history of the Emmy Awards, ever,” Aisha said. “I have to say they did me a favor. Thank God they gave it to me and not one of the poor soap stars who only knows what to say when someone’s handed them a page on a script.”


Apparently even Aisha realized how harsh she was being, because she quickly backtracked. “I’m not trying to hate. Ooooh that was hate-y.” Yeah Aisha, a little bit.

We’re sure Aisha wasn’t trying to slam daytime actors that hard — as a daytime talk show host she must feel at least a little bit of camaraderie with them — but her comments did come out pretty harsh.

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
