The soon-to-be daytime talk show host recently sat down with Andy Cohen in her The Art of the Interview YouTube series and apologized for her past behavior in the Clubhouse. "But it was on your show, and I drank too much, and I have never forgiven myself, nor will I ever forgive myself," Barrymore told Andy. "I really want to apologize to you because I really, I just, I will never let that happen again, and I'm so sorry."
But since all of the guests on WWHL are welcome to imbibe, Andy admitted that he didn't recall anything out of the ordinary during Barrymore's appearance. "I'm used to people being overserved on my show, and so I don't even have a totally clear memory of it," he said. "But you don't need to apologize to me for being overserved on my show. That happens. You're in a great club of people."
Cocktails aside, it's really the variety of guests and topics covered that makes WWHL the successful show that it is, according to Barrymore. "What you have done is my favorite thing in the world. You have mixed tones," she told Andy. "That, I think, is the mastery of your show."
Andy couldn't agree more with Barrymore's assessment of WWHL. "I love you for getting that, because I am all about high and low, and that is my entire goal in everything that I'm doing," he said. "I think that there's no one thing anymore, you know what I mean, so people view Lisa Vanderpump and Helen Mirren, they're like, 'I love to watch Lisa Vanderpump on TV, and I love to watch Helen Mirren in a movie. Like, why can't I see both of those people in the same place?' I think that's what life is today. It used to be just these are the stars or this is who's on, and I try to be a representation of what's really happening in culture right now in my show."
