- "Did that actually happen?" asked Jimmy Kimmel
- "I came over and there she was," said Meryl Streep
- "She was next to Spielberg," she added
Here's how the conversation about the seat mishap went down on Jimmy Kimmel's show:
Jimmy Kimmel: "I saw something that said Mariah Carey stole your seat. Is that true? Did that actually happen?"
Meryl Streep: B***h stole my seat! * audience breaks into laughter * I came over and there she was. She was next to Spielberg, s***ing up. She said 'Oh my god, they made me sit down because you know we're moving.' You know, they say 5.. 4.. 3.. 2.. 1 and wherever you are, you have to drop to the seats.
Jimmy Kimmel: It was Musical Chair in a way and you were left out!
Here's how Mariah Carey attempted to salvage the situation:
Got caught mingling on the way to the loo during a commercial break.. took the first seat available, happens to be right next to Steven Spielberg. Cut to next commercial break, guess who comes back to her seat...— Mariah Carey (@MariahCarey) January 8, 2018
(me) Dear Meryl, please forgive me!— Mariah Carey (@MariahCarey) January 8, 2018
(MERYL STREEP) You can take my seat any time!
