Chrissy Metz says she didn’t call Alison Brie a ‘bitch’ on a hot mic during the Globes

Is Chrissy Metz calling Alison Brie a “bitch” on a hot mic the new “did Grover say the F word” controversy? (I can still hear that Grover video either way!) In this case you can’t fully hear what Chrissy is saying though. This was streamed on Facebook live, and it’s Chrissy giving commentary on Alison when the camera cutaway and she presumably didn’t know her mic was still on. Some people think she’s saying “she’s such a bitch.” You can listen to that below, but it cuts off right before the word is completed.

Here’s another clip.

So Chrissy could be saying “she’s such a b-ig star” or something like that! It does sound like she’s calling her a bitch, but you can’t actually hear the end of the sentence, at least in the clips I found. In fact Chrissy told People Magazine that she said “oh boy, I love her!” She also tweeted that the story was fake. A couple of people tweeted that they heard “she’s so sweet.”

“I’m so distraught and upset,” the This Is Us actress said.

“I don’t speak about anyone like that I don’t speak like that. I love Alison, I follow her,” Metz shared. “When I was walking up they said, ‘Do you know Alison,’ and I said, ‘Oh boy, do I.’ I love her.”

In a statement, a rep for Metz also said: “Chrissy never said that. She would never say that about anybody. She’s a huge fan and friend of Alison Brie. Chrissy has nothing but admiration and respect for Alison and, frankly, every fellow actor who must wade through this much-too-common attempt to create a feud among colleagues.”

[From People]

Alison Brie shared a photo with Chrissy from the SAG Awards last year on her IG stories and wrote “nothing but love,” so they’re all good! I believe Chrissy, her explanation sounds reasonable and it’s very easy to mishear things. I can still hear Grover saying “f’ing” if I assume that’s what he’s saying. This is probably a similar case.


Alison Brie was in a custom Vera Wang dress with a black bandeau bra adorned with different-sized pearls and a baby blue sheer overlay with a long voluminous skirt. It’s interesting, I’ll give it that. I really liked the skirt part. She was nominated for Actress in a TV series, for GLOW, which went to Rachel Brosnahan. Update: here are the photos of their dresses I’m sorry for forgetting them. I don’t have an ID on Chrissy’s dress but I love the color! A lot of women were wearing that very bright red last night.



I’m including a couple of other actresses in Vera Wang last night as we need to keep cranking out the fashion! Here’s Taraji P Henson in green velvet. I’m not into the top of this dress and find it too revealing. It has such potential though. Constance Wu is pulling off this nude colored Wang with the red-orange bow. It’s borderline fug with that lingerie look top and the tulle skirt but she’s a fashion girl and she’s owning it.

    I feel like I’m crazy. I can’t hear it AT ALL.

    • Meemow says:

      What do you hear her say? I hear it but pribably because I’m listening for it.

      • The rational consumer says:

        I hear, “she’s such a babe.” But 🤷‍♂️

      • Wiglet Watcher says:

        I dont think she’s saying that here, but I’ve heard Brie referred to as such a few times of others with 1st hand accounts. With follow ups being she is well protected in a low key way of people wont get jobs if they dont like her via family and relationships.

        I loved her on community, but I can see the other side as her image is tightly controlled 5o be very sweet and kind with no other trait in sight.

      • charo says:

        BUT what is it she’s claiming she DID say?

    • Erinn says:

      It sounded kind of like “sweet” to me.

  2. Huh says:

    Well that’s one way for these two unknowns to make the front page of every news site! Well played ladies.

    • Ifeoma says:

      Two unknowns? One was nominated, why so bitter sis?

      • Starkiller says:

        And had anyone ever heard of either of them before this non-story? Highly doubtful. Pointing that out is not “bitter”, just stating a fact.

      • Kebbie says:

        Have y’all really not heard of Alison Brie? Community, Mad Men, Glow? Married to Dave Franco?

        Chrissy Metz is on This is Us.

      • MrsBeast says:

        Bitter?? LMAO! I have NO IDEA who Alison Brie is. I have no idea of what show she is on and while I recall hearing her name, this is the first Ive ever paid her any attention. Not knowing who these two are does not make someone bitter. It means they do not know who they are! If you don’t watch their shows, you wouldn’t know.

    • Gaaahhh says:

      They aren’t unknowns. One is on one of the biggest shows on NBC and one of the most talked about shows and the other is nominated for being on one of the biggest shows on Netflix. Alison Brie was also on Community and Mad Men. Just because you don’t know them, doesn’t make them unknowns.

    • Thirsty Hirsty says:

      “Unknowns” …huh….I LOVE both their shows….they are both brilliant actresses. There are so many I haven’t heard of…to call these two unknowns…oh, wait….click bait….I get it now……and I’m sorry I fell for it……

    • Canber says:

      Bless your heart.

      • MrsBeast says:

        Indeed. God forbid someone doesn’t know who two TV actresses are. Bless your heart.

      • Canber says:

        Sweetheart, if you don’t know them it’s on you, it’s not necessarily a reflection on said actresses. Take your time and absorb that.

    • Huh says:

      Never heard of them. Yes they maybe good actresses (don’t know never heard of them) …. but they’re certainly not news worthy celebs… until now. (Actually still not celebs…)

      • Jenns says:

        Your username suits you.

      • A says:

        I mean, the fact that you’ve never heard of them sounds more like something that’s on you, rather than an indictment of who is a “news worthy celeb” and who isn’t tbh.

    • msd says:

      Oh come on, this has more to do with the media’s constant insistence that women ‘don’t get along’. They love to talk about ‘catfighting’, about women sabotaging each other (rather than men). It’s really old, really misogynistic, and really dumb.

  3. Elaine says:

    I don’t see Alison Brie’s dress in this post?

  4. chrissyms says:

    I think it is pretty clear that is what she said. I guess she is hoping to deny it and then the story will disappear and be old news after 24 hours.

  5. Reese. says:

    I didn’t hear the word “bitch” but as CB pointed out what was she going to finish that sentence with? “Best pal”. Her apology would be more believable if she could explain what she was saying and her train of thought in that exact sentence.

  6. Jag says:

    So they were like “whoever,” “she’s such a b-“. She totally said it and they both were being dismissive and awful regarding Alison.

    I think that Alison is handling this well. I was expecting it to be like where I’ve called my sister one just joking, but that’s not the way that I see that clip at all.

  7. Becca says:

    I heard bitch. Her overall tone beforehand also screamed “ she’s a bitch”…

  8. Tweetime says:

    Her tone is weird but I actually hear closer to “she’s such a babe” – it doesn’t sound like an i after the “b-“

  9. Jessica says:

    Definitely think she said it and would love to know that story. Bet Chrissy has dealt with a metric ton of mean girl shit in Hollywood.

  10. Kerfuffle says:

    But no pictures of Allison or Chrissy from this year? Because the one she posted are from last year.

  11. Parigo says:

    The mike got cut off. “ She’s such a b-“. ….big star?

    I really don’t think she said b*tch.

    • Lucy2 says:

      That’s what I heard too, “she’s such a b-“ but nothing beyond that. I didn’t hear “bitch” and it could be any number of words.

      I kind of doubt she’d say it to two people she doesn’t know after just being on live TV.

      Kind of funny neither red carpet interviewer has clarified it though. If she didn’t say bitch, you think they would tweet that or something.

    • hunter says:

      That’s funny because the clip I saw earlier in the day didn’t have the mic cutoff. HA.

  12. SM says:

    I don’t hear anything. However her tone is suggestive, like she could really think that Alison is a bitch.

  13. Kittyfarts says:

    Sidenote: I thought Alison Brie looked awful. Her hair & make up looked rushed

  14. Adrien says:

    Is this another Grover situation? I don’t have trouble believing she’s a binch though. I love Alison but she looks like the binches I have encountered in high school.

  15. Originaltessa says:

    Beautiful girl

  16. Jay says:

    She said bitc_. On a side note, if ms. Metz wants to see 50, she really needs to get a handle on herself.

    • Jaded says:

      Agree – I have really good speakers on my computer. And I know I’m going to get flamed for this but yes, her health is at risk.

    • Cidey says:

      Agreed. I am delighted with the trend toward body acceptance and healthier (ie not emaciated) norms for the female body. Chrissy is clearly UNhealthy and no amount of people telling me she looks great will convince me otherwise. She is very talented and has a stunningly beautiful face. She is also morbidly obese and I fear she will not live a long life.

    • A says:

      So none of you read the Taffy Brodesser-Akner piece for the New York Times Magazine, huh?

      • Cidey says:

        If you’re referring to the WW article, yes, I have. I am a lifetime member of WW. Doesn’t change my opinion.

  17. Esmom says:

    I heard “babe” and I think it fits in the context of their exchange. Some people say they were being dismissive but I think they were just awkward.

    I don’t like any of the dresses except Chrissy’s.

  18. Notyouraveragehousewife says:

    All I heard was a word that started with a “b” but I definitely didn’t hear bitch.

  19. bears says:

    “She’s such a b-” Okay, so I definitely heard that part..but if she didn’t say bitch, then what word/statement beginning with B did she say? Does she not remember?

  20. rabbitgirl says:

    I heard her say “she’s so sweet”

  21. echophoebe says:

    She clearly says “She’s such a babe”. I don’t think she would say “b….” with all the cameras and microphones around even if she thought it.

    • Kebbie says:

      I heard babe when I was listening for it. She should just say “I called her a babe” and people would hear that and drop it.

  22. Other Renee says:

    I’m a fan of Constance and Taraji but not of their dresses. The top of Constance’s looks just awful, like lingerie. As for Taraji, I’m just not a fan of boobs hanging out. It just looks cheap and thirsty.

  23. Jenn says:

    I am loving Constance Wu’s deconstructed whatever. I didn’t even know you could do that with a dress! It’s ludicrous and she looks like she’s having a blast.

    The individual who first tweeted that he heard Metz say “b—” has since deleted it. Never tweet, kids.

  24. Harryg says:

    Wu’s dress is hideous.

  25. silliness says:

    So I was watching it live and saw the alert just as it came on, and she clearly said bitch. The audio did not cut off. She said it. I’m still in shock.

    And for the record I’m not a dedicated fan of either women. I like them both actually.

    • Snap Happy says:

      She said it. That interviewer set her up tho. Why would she say, “whoever?”

      • Miss M says:

        Exactly! I think I heard someone repeating: do I? Then, I heard: whoever, she is such a bit__.

  26. Marianne says:

    “Nude Coloured Wang”….hee hee hee

    • AMAyson1977 says:

      Deleted my reply above where I said the same thing…the 12 year-old in me is dying, DYING at “nude-colored Wang,” Come sit by me, we can pop our gum and roll our eyes at real adults. 😛

  27. abbi says:

    So this is how Metz is defending herself–“If you actually listen to the video, I don’t say anything. It’s actually not me speaking about that, so it’s unfortunate.” Which is interesting, she is basically saying someone else said bitch? I definitely heard “bitch”!

  28. ixia416 says:

    Chrissy’s dress is NY-based Canadian designer Tanya Taylor.

  29. MrsBeast says:

    Chrissy whatever her name is has LONG been known to not be a very nice person. Google her and read up on how she treats her fans. I think she stupidly said bitch and is hoping this will blow over. Why she would be so dumb as to speak that way on live TV while mic’ed is beyond me. Sounds like plain old jealousy to me. The word cuts off and while it is possible that she said babe, the tone of her voice doesn’t seem friendly or happy. I think she felt passed over for Brie and got upset since the two interviewers diverted their attention to Brie.

  30. Suz says:

    I’ve JUST finally watched Mad Men and Community and oh boy is Alison Brie the annoying drama student in everyone’s freshman dorm hall. Always ON!

  31. A says:

    I believe that she didn’t call her a bitch. For one thing, if she were the type, we’d honestly have heard a heck of a lot more about it before now. For another, Alison Brie just seemed confused about it all, which makes me think that there’s really no feud between them at all, so why would Chrissy Metz call her a bitch anyway? Just because? Again, she doesn’t strike me as the type. -shrug-
