Which means that she’s experienced bad dates — but one of them especially stands out.
During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where Nicole Byer was filling in for the late night talk show host, Heidi recalled once going on a date to the movie theater that just got increasingly awkward as the time went on.
“I had one weird date where we went to a movie theater,” she explained, adding that it was already “strange” from the beginning because she kept having to reach over to get popcorn since her date was holding it. “I thought [it] was already strange, like, why do I always have to reach over? Why don’t you reach over?”
“And I’m reaching over, and I’m eating the popcorn,” she went on, “and then, all of the sudden, there’s a hot dog in the popcorn — but it was attached. The hot dog that’s still attached.”
Um, WHAT??! The way that I would have been packing up and ending the date right there…
While Heidi didn’t share exactly how she reacted in that moment, she stressed that it all was just “very strange” to her.
“It never happened again,” she added. “But it was memorable.”
“I can imagine that it’s memorable,” Nicole replied. “It’s something you talk about in therapy. That’s tough!”
