NEW YORK (AP) — She's done Broadway, TV, films, music and books. Professionally speaking, Kristin Chenoweth is at the top of her game.

But the one thing the 43-year-old Chenoweth says is missing from her list of accomplishments is finding Mr. Right and settling down.

In an interview last week with The Associated Press, Chenoweth says, "I want to be married. I feel finally ready for that."

She says she wants to be a mom someday, even if it's to animals.

Chenoweth released a country music album last week called "Some Lessons Learned." Up next for her is the TV show "Good Christian Belles," described as "Desperate Housewives" for the Bible Belt.

She was nominated for two Emmys for her role as a boozy former glee club star on the hit Fox show "Glee."
