As for whether she thinks Simpson put on a "dumb blonde" act during the series, Kolinsky believes the entertainer was as candid as possible while filming the show. "There were times when we were like, 'Hm, does she really not know what this means?' I truly believe the whole 'chicken and fish' situation
was accurate. She really did not know," she says, recalling the infamous moment when Simpson asked, "Is this chicken what I have, or is this fish? I know it's tuna, but it says Chicken by the Sea. Is that stupid?"
