Jane Lynch Reveals Who Gave Her the Best Advice – Even If It Was 'Flawed on So Many Levels'

Originally posted 05/14/2015 05:15PM

At the CBS upfront presentation for her new show Angel from Hell, in which she plays an irreverent wisecracker who may or may not be an actual guardian angel, Jane Lynch told PEOPLE about her own personal guiding light.

When asked who has been one of her best advice givers, the actress said she treasures lessons learned from an offbeat therapist.

"I had a therapist that was flawed on so many levels, but I kept going back because she just had wisdom, and I knew she loved me," said Lynch, 54. "And I know maybe your therapists aren't supposed to love [you]."

Like her character in Angel from Hell, Lynch's therapist offered invaluable advice despite her unconventional methods.

Jeff Probst's Survivor Advice: 'Lie as Infrequently as Possible'

Originally posted 02/25/2015 03:40PM

It happens during every season of Survivor: A contestant is backstabbed.

During the final tribal council, one of the competitors is inevitably shocked – shocked! – that an ally would lie to them. They throw around words like "integrity" and "honor." Some even cry.

As the scenario unfolds, host Jeff Probst watches with an amused smile on his dimpled face. "It's fascinating," he tells PEOPLE. "I'm constantly entertained."

Was he entertained while filming the show's 30th season, premiering on CBS on Wednesday night? Probst says that Survivor: Worlds Apart, which divides its 18 contestants by profession, will be one of the franchise's strongest seasons yet.
