ICYMI, U.K.'s "This Morning" host Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby said J.Lo requested "a cookie warmed to the perfect temperature with a glass of full-fat milk, cold." While some called their decision to call out Lopez unprofessional, Williams supported the move.
"Should hosts reveal demands? My answer is yes. Of course," she explained. "If she was diva demanding milk and cookies, that's like fun stuff. It's fun stuff, I'm sure Jen gets it. I bet you Jen was on the way to the studio and she was hungry and couldn't stop and so she said, 'Well, call ahead, I would like cookies and milk.'"
Asking what the big deal was, Williams then explained what her own green room demands included. "I like orange juice, the Tropicana. I like 7 Tropicanas with no pulp," she explained. "They're expensive and if I'm coming on your show, I expect to bring home gifts. I drink one while I'm there and then I take the other 6 Tropicanas, dump them in my bag. My mother taught me well. It's not a big deal."
The J.Lo incident prompted Williams to share a tale from her own set, which a gaffer on the show reminded her of the day prior.
"I was reminded the other day by [gaffer] John Anderson, do you know what he told me, out of nowhere. He was like, remember when Justin Bieber came here and trashed the green room?" she recalled. "And kicked John! John is like so innocent. Imagine a little kid, he's like 13 years old when he comes here fighting with [William Frawley's "I Love Lucy" character] Fred Mertz."
"John told me, John was like, 'You know what, his father told him, 'What are you doing? Get back up there, you straightened up that green room!' His father told him that and Justin had to go right back up there!"
