My Debut on Jimmy Fallon

I'm sure most of you watched Jimmy Fallon's late show debut Monday night. But, more importantly, did you watch his second show?

Why is that more important, you ask? Because I was on it!

My lovely friend Pat and I decided to check out last night's show featuring Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon. While we were in line waiting to enter the studio, a production assistant came up to me and asked if I wanted to be in a sketch they were doing. Before I could answer, Pat said, "Absolutely!" (Thanks, Pat) and our adventure began.

We got to skip the line and were escorted into the studio where we were given Late Night with Jimmy Fallon shirts and chocolate candy bars. I was then placed in a specific seat, with Pat next to me for moral support (and to keep telling me whether or not I looked okay -- I asked him about 100 times).

After some standup by Seth Herzog and a great performance by The Roots, Jimmy came out for his opening monologue. All I could think about is what face I'd make when the camera was on me. Luckily, I didn't have too much time for pondering, because as soon as his monologue ended, Jimmy sat down at the desk and introduced the Facebook Updates segment. It was almost time for my 15 seconds of fame!

Check out the clip above. I'm the third fake Facebook update. They made up a name for me -- Tanya Smith -- and a Facebook status -- that I was reconciling with Chris Brown. So funny! They had no idea that I'm an Entertainment Editor and yet somehow they gave me the celebrity gossip joke!

You can view the full episode on Hulu.com. Plus, Pat and I make a second appearance during the credits when I force Pat to slap Jimmy high-five.
