The star had a sentimental debate with her co-host Ross Mathews during her show's opening segment, Drew's News, where the two had opposing opinions about second, third, and fourth marriages.

Drew was married to Will Kopelman from 2012 to 2016. They share daughters Olive and Frankie, and she's previously confessed divorce was the hardest thing she's ever been through. Still, though he has since remarried, she has maintained that the two are on great terms and that she loves his new wife.

When the co-hosts first announced the headline they were about to discuss, they immediately made their disagreement clear, with Ross admitting: "I'm not a big fan of this," about Kaley's marriage statement.

He told his co-host: "You may be saying now, Drew, 'I'm never getting married again,' but what about one day, thirty years from now, you meet someone who is your person... Maybe then you'd change your mind?"

The star didn't hold back, shaking her head no as he posed his question, and quickly, defiantly, stating, "Nope, absolutely not," as soon as he stopped talking.
