Jane Lynch says she and her estranged wife Lara Embry are working on a friendly split - especially for the sake of Embry's young daughter.

'It's two people who decided it's just better to go apart than to stay together,' Lynch tells Larry King on the former CNN's personality's online show.

Of biggest concern is Embry's young daughter, Hayden, who Lynch grew close to as her stepmother for three years.

'She has a little girl who is very dear to me and she's doing great,' Lynch says. 'You have to remain adults which we have.'

Before introducing the evening’s honoree, The Emmy-winning Glee star took not of the female roasters on hand including Carrie Fisher, Katey Sagal and Ellen Barkin and cracked: 'This show is serving up more old spoiled hens than a Chick-Fil-A.'

Then she added a real zinger.

'Oh, that reminds me… Fuck Chick-fil-A.'
