Maury Povich has surprised countless guests on his syndicated talkshow “Maury,” but to celebrate his 2,500th episode, the daytime host had the tables turned on him.
When the crew brought out a gigantic cake to celebrate the milestone episode, none other than Povich’s wife Connie Chung popped out to kick start the celebration. The episode will air on Friday.
Her appearance clearly shocked Povich, who had probably thought he had seen it all over the years.
Nevertheless, a kiss from his famous spouse and a crowd chanting “Maury, Maury” over and over, was probably the right way to honor the occasion.
Other happenings for the 2,500th episode, include a slew of celebrities congratulating Povich on his success. Names include: Barbara Walters, Shaquille O’Neal, Katie Couric, Sharon Osbourne, Julie Chen and the ladies of “The Talk,” Donald Trump, Joan Rivers, Kathy Griffin, NeNe Leakes, Steve Harvey, Wendy Williams, Jack Hanna, “Access Hollywood Live” hosts Billy Bush and Kit Hoover, fellow NBCUniversal talk show hosts Jerry Springer, Steve Wilkos and Trisha Goddard. Even Honey Boo Boo sent in her own special video message to Maury!
