Guess who was the worst celebrity guest ever on The Simpsons

Longtime Simpsons writer Mike Reiss has a new book out, Springfield Confidential: Jokes, Secrets, and Outright Lies from a Lifetime Writing for The Simpsons. And just guess who he pegs as the worst guest star on the show to date?

While Reiss found most of the show’s celebrity guests a pleasure to work with, “I’ve worked with only one celeb,” he writes, “whom I considered a diva. To protect her anonymity, the publisher’s legal department will only let me give you her first name: Oprah.”

Oh, and the possibility of finally getting a President of the USA in Donald Trump to guest star would be a break with tradition.

They have also never had a US president, having been rejected by every POTUS from Gerald Ford to Barack Obama.

“The closest we ever came was Bill Clinton,” Reiss writes. “After we wrote him a part and sent him the script, he notified us, ‘While I’d love to do ‘The Simpsons,’ I’d never do anything to disgrace the office of the president.’ Sometimes they write the jokes for you.”

So let's get Trump on and go buy the book over at Amazon in the meantime.
