Vicki Lawrence Once Smoke 'a bit of weed' with 'Carol Burnett Show' Castmates Backstage
Vicki Lawrence reveals she and her co-stars once smoked weed while shooting "The Carol Burnett Show" and it didn't go over well with Carol. "It was the 70's and we had one week, a camera strike, so none of the camera guys were here, so we had the executives running the cameras," says Lawrence. "Needless to say, it was taking a while to get the show done and we're all just bored to death... and Vincent Price was our guest star... so Lyle [Waggoner] comes into Harvey's [Korman] dressing room with a bag of weed and says, 'What do you think?' So we said, 'Ya, we're down.' So he's down on the floor in Harvey's dressing room rolling a joint. We all smoked a little bit of weed," spills Lawrence. "I think what happened was, Carol got wind of it, if you will. She was so mad at us. She was like, 'You guys better not screw this number up. You better get it right on the first take.'" Sara Gilbert asks, "Did you get it right?" Lawrence laughs saying, "I think we did. I can't really remember."
