Metz added that Brie is "somebody that I really revere" and shared that she and Brie had "already texted about" the gossip. The red carpet show's co-host, AJ Gibson, defended Metz in a statement to People, saying that the This Is Us actress said "babe", not "bitch".
Nicole Sperling, a reporter from Vanity Fair, even took a moment to ask Brie about the situation, of which she seemed to have little knowledge. "When I was walking up they said, 'Do you know Alison, ' and I said, 'Oh boy, do I.' I love her".
"I don't speak about anyone like that I don't speak like that. 'I know her. I saw her on the carpet and I told her how attractive she looked, '" wrote Sperling about Brie's response. "Alison and I obviously are friends. Rumors can't keep us down!"
Brie later posted on her Instagram account a picture of the two actresses together and said, "Nothing but love for @ChrissyMetz". Cheers to Metz and Brie, you're an inspiration! "I would never say anything like that about anyone".
