If you love TV, you have seen Lisa Kudrow's The Comeback. If you say you love TV and have not seen The Comeback, stop reading this, go watch The Comeback's two seasons—they're only 21 episodes—and come back (get it) and finish reading this when you've stopped laughing, crying from laughing, and just generally crying.
Anyway, Lisa Valerie Kudrow has always loved the name Valerie. In fact, she told Conan O'Brien Tuesday that she wanted to be known as L. Valerie when she was growing up. She told all her friends that was her new moniker, she thought it was much more interesting than just Lisa, but then she lost all her friends.
"I'm kind of making fun of myself with that," Kudrow said on Conan. "Bear with me. But when I was in junior high school I thought Lisa was too common and silly a name. There's no Lisa you take seriously in the world, but Valerie is a name of substance, I thought."
As for more adventures of Valerie Cherish, well, that remains to be seen.
"Oh, the desire is always there, so, this doesn't increase it. It's fully there," she said with a laugh. "We're talking anyway, talking about what that would look like. This [Emmy nomination] is icing to me. This is another gift alongside all the other fantastic things."
