"Okay, we are at a restaurant and we have been filming all day, a restaurant scene,” she explained in the clip.

“Travis Kelce, how many meatballs have you eaten today?" she then asked the football player, who replied, "Well, I'm eating them by the half, so probably 10. 10 meatballs? And we still got a ways to go!" Nash-Betts then added while giggling.

Kelce admitted during the May 14 episode of New Heights that he was “shocked” he got a call from Murphy to star in the series, but added that "It's been so much fun.”

"Ryan Murphy is [an] unbelievable writer, director, producer, all of the above, man. He's just — there's nothing he can't do and everybody's just been so helpful in making me feel comfortable."

Kelce also has a few other Hollywood projects in the works, including producing the film My Dead Friend Zoe and hosting the upcoming Prime game show Are You Smarter Than a Celebrity?.
