-You gave me one of myfavorite phrases ever, by the way, when we were playinga game on our show.
You said — do you rememberwhen we were playing? -Not today, Satan.
[ Laughs ] -“Not today, Satan.
” “Not today, Satan” wasone of the best things, everybody in my office said itfor weeks.
Months after you left.
We were obsessed with that.
Anytime anything came up, we were like, “Oh, no, no, no, not today, Satan.
” -[ Laughs ]-Is that something you say, or you just made it upon the spot? -No, that's like a classicblack church, like declaration.
-And I used to say it a lotat, like on set, when they would, like in the good old days when we would be on setand they would walk by with like a plate ofsome amazing-looking cookie that I knew would destroymy two-hour workout I had done that morning, I was like, “Not today, Satan.
” [ Laughter ] -I want to talk about”Little Fires Everywhere.
-How cool is this? This is — by the way, two of my favorite people, you and Reese Witherspoon, getting together.
I mean, sign me up.
You guys could read the phonebook and I would watch that.
-[ Laughs ]-For real.
-I love her.
I feel the same way about her.
I just — I love everything shedoes with Hello Sunshine.
-Yeah, me too.
-I think she's so smart, so funny, and so kindand so amazing.
I just adore her.
-I love the title”Little Fires Everywhere.
” But do you want to explainwhat the show is about, or the series is about?-Yeah.
Yeah, so it's about two women, really, who could not bemore different in terms of how they parent, from racially, economically, socially.
They're just like such differentwomen who normally would never bein each other's lives.
But they get thrust into eachother's lives.
And their daughters actuallybecome obsessed with the other mother, and it kind ofunravels both families.
So it's a lot aboutfamily secrets.
It's a big mystery dramaof who set this fire that we discoverat the top of the show.
And it's about kind ofthe impact that mothering and daughteringand parenting can have on families.
It's really special.
-Yeah, I love the firstepisodes with this, where you kind of find out thatReese's house is burning down.
-They're like, “It's not — This is not a thing, this is set — Little fires were seteverywhere.
What is that?-Wow, come on! I love a good story.
You can't beat a good story.
Kerry, every time we havesomeone come on the show, we ask them to bring upa charity or something that they're working with orsomething that's close to them.
You brought up MedShare.
-What is MedShare? -So MedShare is — I love thatyou're doing this, by the way, and helping people contributeto all these charities.
It's really generous, Jimmy.
So MedShare's been around fora long time, for like ten years, and they have always servedhospitals in underservedcommunities.
So providing supportin communities where hospitals just don't getenough funding.
And so they really stepped inobviously in these COVID-19 times, and when I reached out to them, I said that I wanted to be ableto donate a larger amount to — specifically to hospitalsin the Bronx.
And so, because that's whereI'm from, it's my hometown, and New York is the epicenter, and I knew that the numbers in New York were probablybeing undercounted and definitelyunderserved.
So MedShare has allowed meto provide extra resources for hospitals in the Bronx –Montefiore and BronxCare.
-Yeah, it is unbelievable, when you — and I know you're from New York, to watch the news and see what's going onat these hospitals.
I mean, people are justdoing their best to get through this thing.
And oh, man, it is just, I've never seenanything like it.
It's just really kind ofunbelievable.
And just everyone'sstepping up and becoming heroes.
It's kind of a beautiful thingto see.
-And also I think in this time, like, our mental healthis so important.
And when we give, we feel better.
Like, giving, whether it'scalling your congresspeople to fight for paid leavefor workers and sick leave for all workers, like, that doesn't requireany money, but it's something you cando that will help save lives.
Like, that –just trying to think — and there are so manyresources online — “Like, what can I do, even if it's small? Because it will be goodfor other people, but it willalso be good for me.
because it will help mefeel like I'm part of the solution and part ofour global community right now.
” -It does make you feel good.
And thank you so much, Kerry, for coming on our show, and for talking about “Little Fires Everywhere”and everything.
-Thank you for watching, thank you for watching.
We're so happy that you'rewatching and talking about it.
-Every single thing.
You know, I follow you, your whole career, but.
I can't wait to see youin person, okay? -I know, I can't wait to hug.
-Yeah, I do.
-Send my love to your family.
