Boris, we were talking earlier, what's the most awkward encounter you may have had with an ex or frenemy or someone you had a falling out with that you can remember? Well, first of all, if there's too many of those exes I think you should have a conversation with yourself. No, stop. Don't call Katie out. Don't call Katie out. Hey, number four. What's up? Excuse E me, what's her name? Katie. Katie, you got to look at the mirror and say, Katie -- what's my part in the disaster? All right, because there's got -- there's one common denominator, that's you, Katie, you might want to have a little therapy session with yourself. This was Katie's first and last visit to the show. Okay. The's a part of it. She is. For me, it's a party every He's like with me with it. No, look, either we're friends still, then there's hugs and kisses. If not, then I dodged a major bullet.

Like, I mean, it was like I was their first child training. Boris, Nicole, they both treated me like -- yes, I got two other parents. It was the best time. I still feel that way, though. I always check her out and make sure she's wearing nice clothes and she's not out there at Coachella acting a fool. He's just himself 100% all the time. Oh, yeah. She's like, he's opposite of what you think when you look at someone like that. He's the sweetest and most humble guy. Get the name thing. This is funny. Maybe it isn't.
