The clip was also shared on TikTok after the interview. During the time, guest host Maria Shriver asked Aubrey about her outfit. She admitted that she wanted to dress up as the character that’s in her children’s book. Aubrey continued to make expressions while sitting in her seat. Then, she let out a breath as she went off on a tangent.

“Well, I don’t choose these things. I am chosen by the Christmas witch,” Aubrey said. “She appeared to me in a dream, and I just knew I had to get her story out.”

The camera showed Craig Melvin’s expression during that moment. He couldn’t believe what he just heard. He stuck his tongue out at the camera. The co-host tried not to laugh during Aubrey’s interview.
