The Ryan Murphy & Friends panel at Saturday’s inaugural EW Fest was packed beyond capacity, and we can now share the full video from the event moderated by EW’s own Tim Stack and featuring Keke Palmer, Lea Michele, Emma Roberts, Matt Bomer, Kathy Bates, and, of course, the American Horror Story and Scream Queens creator himself.
Among the many topics discussed was the visit that Murphy and Lady Gaga paid to Barbra Streisand’s glamorous Malibu home, the basement of which is an actual shopping mall. (“I literally can’t hear this,” said Michele. “I’m getting upset. I was so mad I wasn’t invited that night!”) After touring the mall for an hour or so, Streisand asked her guests (including John Travolta and Kelly Preston) whether they’d like any frozen yogurt. And Streisand hasn’t earned her de facto employee of the month title for nothing: Not only did she operate the machines herself, but she even asked Murphy and Gaga what toppings they wanted.

And yes, the frozen yogurt served in Barbra Streisand’s mall basement is “delicious.”
Murphy (and his friends) also chatted about the less-than-glamorous jobs that paid the rent before they made it in the entertainment industry, under what conditions Murphy might consider a Nip/Tuck revival, Bates revealed herself to be the biggest Little Monster on the Hotel set, and more.
