During the morning talk show's beginning segment of Drew's News, where she discusses recent positive headlines, the host and her show partner Ross Mathews discussed a recent advice column detailing how an upcoming bride didn't know what to do about the fact that her mother insisted she wouldn't go to the wedding if her daughter wore a black wedding dress.

The two were quick to take the bride's side, and the Santa Clarita Diet actress explained how the situation in a way hit close to home. 

She had advice for the fellow mom, stating: "Maybe we let our daughters pull a 492 and be free and do their own thing," which received applause from the audience in return.
