The King of Queens actress Leah Remini went on The Ellen Show and tried to prank call Remini’s husband, Angelo. But the call backfired. When Ellen calls Angelo, a woman named Tiffany answers and says Angelo can’t come to the phone. The call is broadcast on a speaker line so Remini can hear the conversation. Remini grabs the phone from Ellen and says, “Who’s this?” Tiffany responds, “Who’s this?” Remini can’t believe it and yells (at her normal volume) “Uh, his wife!” Supposedly Tiffany whispers to Angelo, “you’re married?”
The prank has Remini fans worried. Some think it wasn’t staged. Jeffrey Crowell wrote: “This definitely was REAL! Leah wouldn’t have reacted that way and said the F word on TV if it was part of a prank. And look at Ellen’s reaction and facial expression when Leah grabbed the phone out of her hand and heard the woman on the other end of the line say “You’re married?!”…They never ended the segment of the show properly. If it was a planned prank on Leah and/or the audience, they would have officially conveyed the joke with a “Gotcha” moment and thanked her for being a guest on the show. But that never happened.” Kari Bradford agrees: “I think the producers noticed when Leah grabbed the phone that the prank was going wrong and that’s why the music came so fast. I’m thinking this is real. “ Or the prank was a tactic Remini is using to get her TLC reality show, It’s All Relative, a second season.
