Country star Kenny Chesney took TV interview awkwardness to a new level on Friday's (17Oct08) Ellen Degeneres show in America, when he chatted up the newly-married lesbian host.
DeGeneres commented on the singer's "wonderful smile", prompting Renee Zellweger's former husband to confess to a crush on the comedienne.
He said, "I think you're hot too, I really do. What are you doing after (the show)?"
Embarrassed DeGeneres said, "Oh, I'm married."
The TV host married actress De Rossi last month in August (08) following the legalisation of gay marriages in California in May (08).
