All tarted up and no place to go.

First to hit the couch are Kate Beckinsale, Niecy Nash, and Jill Soloway (Transparent ).

They also chat about image and self-esteem.

Focus: Chelsea travels to India.

It’s a dinner party! Chelsea sits down with a married couple, a friend, and a comedy team. It isn’t long before they are all ribbing each other. They discuss travel and the similarities between India and America.
