4. Melissa thanked her parents for "terrible advice"
"Every time I said, 'I'm going to quit college and do stand-up,' my mom and dad said, 'Great, work really hard at it, you can probably do it'," the Mike & Molly star said as she glanced at her mother, who was in attendance. "They continued to say that for the 20 years it took for me to actually do it steadily. ... In a way, [my parents] really give terrible advice."
