In the season finale of new hit comedy 'Hot in Cleveland' (Wed., 10PM on TV Land), it was finally time for the Daytime Emmy Awards. Due to a storm, Victoria Chase (Wendie Malick) was unable to attend.
In a comedic nod to Susan Lucci's one win among 21 nominations, she was on-hand to accept the award on Victoria's behalf. In her speech, Lucci said, "Victoria Chase is now living in Cleveland and recovering from some disfiguring disease. The words 'botched' and 'surgery' have been tossed around, but who can say."She then twisted the moment into honoring herself. "You have loved me for so many years," she preened, closing with, "Erika Cane will be around to entertain you for many, many years to come," referencing the fact that Chase's character had been killed off.
While Victoria and her friends watched in horror, Elka (Betty White) was smiling gleefully and nodding. Finally, Victoria snapped and charged the TV -- "Get your grubby little doll hands off my award, you beautiful freak!" -- just as the power went out.
