A couple months later, Mariah dropped by Watch What Happens Live and finally explained why she says she doesn't know Jennifer, telling Andy, "You know what? I'm very forgetful. Apparently, I'm forgetful because I don't remember the fact that it was just like, 'Hi, I'm so and so.'"
The host then asked Mariah if Jennifer seemed cool, to which she responded, "I don't know her. What am I supposed to say? I'm not going to put on a thing like, 'Oh, we're all Hollywood and let's just all pretend we're best friends 'cause we're in that land.' It's no offense to anybody. The question was about Beyoncé and I was saying she's super talented, she's a friend of mine, she's always been sweet to me, she's always been very cool, and then they asked me another question and I was like, 'I don't really know her.'"
