Kristin Chenoweth: "The first time I met Elaine was when we were both playing Carnegie Hall. I ran out of hairspray and went next door to her dressing room to see if I could borrow some. She gave me some and told me I wasn't allowed to spray it near her. I went outside in the hall and sprayed the crap out of my hair. From that moment on we were friends. I idolize her and I hope to have a career with as much longevity as hers. Absolutely great!"
