AND THEN EVERY YEAR FOR THE SUMMER, BECAUSE WE ONLY GET A LITTLE BIT OF TIME OFF FROM “BLACK-ISH,” I USUALLY GO AWAY WITH A GROUP OF FRIENDS I’VE BEEN GOING AWAY WITH FOR YEARS. WE GO TO ITALY. WHEN WE ALL STARTED WE WERE SINGLE GIRLS GOING AWAY TOGETHER. NOW THEY ALL HAVE HUSBANDS AND KIDS. AND I DON’T HAVE HUSBANDS AND KIDS. >>Jimmy: OH. >>I THOUGHT THIS YEAR, LET ME TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

LET’S SEE. WHEN I FIRST GOT THERE, THE WOMAN WHO GAVE ME THE KEYS TO THE HOUSE — I’M GOING TO RENT A HOUSE, I CAN DO THAT, I’M A BIG GIRL, THAT’S SCARY, INEXPENSIVE OR SOMETHING. THE WOMAN GAVE ME THE KEYS, WE’VE BEEN HAVING A HEAT WAVE, IT’S EXTREMELY HOT. IT ALSO WAS VERY RAINY A SHORT WHILE BACK, SO THERE’S A LOT OF FLIES. SO MY SUGGESTION IS THAT YOU KEEP THE SHADES DOWN BECAUSE THERE’S NO AIR CONDITIONING, AND BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY FLIES, THAT YOU DON’T OPEN THE WINDOWS. I WAS LIKE — WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?>>Jimmy: OH, NO. >>I RENTED A HOUSE IN THE SOUTH OF FRANCE AND I CAN’T OPEN THE SHADES, CAN’T OPEN THE WINDOWS.

OR TWO.>>Jimmy: WHAT DID YOU DO? DID YOU GO INTO TOWN AND HANG OUT THERE?>>I LEARNED HOW TO BE A REALLY VERY GOOD FLY MURDERER. >>Jimmy: GOOD. >>IT’S NOT FUNNY, IT’S TERRIBLE. I WAS LIKE — >>Jimmy: HOW MANY FLIES DO YOU THINK YOU KILLED IN YOUR TIME?>>I DON’T CARE TO ADMIT IT. IT’S BEST I DON’T. >>Jimmy: OKAY. >>OKAY? IT WAS ALSO VERY HOT IN THE HOUSE. SO I SLEPT WITH ICE UNDER MY KNEES AND UNDER MY NECK, UNDER TWO FANS, AND I WOKE UP EVERY MORNING WITH A SORE THROAT.>>Jimmy: THIS IS THE WORST TRIP EVER.>>MY FRIEND IS WONDERFUL.>>Jimmy: IT’S A GOOD THING YOU’RE NOT NOMINATED FOR AN EMMY ON THE WAY HOME OR THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN QUITE A BUST. >>IT WAS UNBELIEVABLE. THE TOWN WAS A MILE AND A HALF AWAY, 95 DEGREES MOSTLY UPHILL. >>Jimmy: DID YOU HAVE A CAR?>>NO, DID NOT HAVE A CAR, DID NOT HAVE A BIKE. LITERALLY WE WERE RATIONING FOOD. I WAS LIKE, ONLY BUY WHAT YOU CAN CARRY! WE HAVE ONE BOTTLE OF ROSE AND I DRANK THE ONE BOTTLE OF ROSE FOR FIVE DAYS. >>Jimmy: WHAT?>>TAKE A LITTLE SIP. I’D BE LIKE, OH, THAT WAS GOOD! [ LAUGHTER ] I WAS LIKE, CARRY THE WATER, IT’S MORE IMPORTANT!>>Jimmy: WOW. THE STARS REALLY ARE JUST LIKE US, I GUESS, HUH? I MEAN, THIS IS A KIND OF — THE KIND OF SACTIONS I HAVE. >>DON’T GET ME WRONG, IT WAS HIGH-END, I RENTED A HOUSE, IT WAS HIGH-END HELL. >>Jimmy: GOD PUNISHED YOU FOR BEING RICH IS WHAT HAPPENED. >>AND THE WHOLE TIME I’LL SEEING ON INSTAGRAM MY FRIENDS IN ITALY WITH MY GOD CHILDREN. WHERE’S AUNTY TRACEE? THEY’RE HAVING A BALL WHERE I USUALLY AM. I’M LIKE, I’M HERE WITH THE FLIES.>>Jimmy: WE’RE GOING TO TAKE A BREAK.

  1. So Black-ish can come back on, and we need a Girlfriends movie, like a brown girl magic Sex in the City version……j/s.

  2. Oh Tracee- you let me down. That's one of the those situations where you and your friend just go, 'uhm, nope' and you throw some money at it and a few hours later you're sitting in Italy with your friends.

  3. Anyone reading this: Don't rent houses/rooms without AC in the south of Europe during the summer, unless you want to suffer.

  4. Saying it now: the best lunch in the world has five women in attendance. You will laugh, cry, and learn. Tracee, Drew Barrymore, Michelle Obama, Reese Witherspoon, and Busy Phillips. ๐Ÿ™Œ

  5. I don't even know why she went in that house after talking to the owner. Decline payment due to poor living conditions and go to a hotel.

  6. Gosh this woman is EVERYTHING ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Š A ๐Ÿฏ dipped Goddess ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹

  7. She should have gotten another place and gotten a refund from that women for false advertising and not warning her of all those things prior

  8. Nice to know that even when you're an accomplished grownass woman, men will still be shocked that you travel alone. eyeroll

  9. This whole interview was so good. Definitely one of the most entertaining ones he's had in a while. And not even meaning a jab at recent guests, but she was just really fun to watch

  10. Diana Ross is an awesome Mom. She has done a phenomenal job raising all of her kids. This is so evident every time I see Tracy on TV and in interviews. She carries herself so classy and graciously.

  11. so jimmy kimmel is running out of stars?? who is this woman? nobody knows her…….her motha is diana ross,but what has this woman done? n othing of course!

  12. That ain't a broad that's a counterfeit, that snot woman, no way, looks like a man using woman's apparel; goofball's quests are all con-job whack-"O"
