“I’m a Missouri girl,” Fischer said. “And the show must go on.”

Fischer then explained, slightly flustered, “I waited a little too long to get dressed, and then my zipper broke. And I panicked.”

However, she did admit that she did feel extremely comfortable in the towel rather than the dress,  “I’ve never been more comfortable,” she continued as she looked at her outfit. “I am mentally a little freaking out that I’m on a talk show in a towel, but I’m physically very comfortable.”
