When host Ryan asked her why she doesn’t like weddings, to which she said,

“I don’t like weddings, like one I’m… we’ll have a wedding… I’ve not like weddings since before there was a partner involved. It’s too much… too many things… like my mother in law… shout out to Sherry… she’s going to want a wedding.”

She continued,

“And I don’t like them because my mom was a wedding singer growing up. I’ve been at a lot of weddings uninvited and just like been the weird kid eating cake at a stranger’s wedding,”

“And now I don’t like them.”
