While not directly referring to the reason for the drama, Williams had gotten into hot water the day before after a tasteless joke she made while discussing the news that Drew Carey’s ex-fiancée Amie Harwick had been murdered, allegedly by an abusive ex-boyfriend.

“Come on down!” she then said, imitating the “Price is Right” host and moving her head to look like she was watching a person falling to the ground.
