Drew Barrymore Allegedly Banned Winona Ryder From Her Talk Show For This Reason
Drew Barrymore and Winona Ryder are allegedly still at odds with each other after all these years.
In its September 6 issue, National Enquirer claimed that Barrymore has not forgiven Ryder for having a crush on her ex-husband, Tom Green.
As a result, the former child star banned Ryder from appearing on her talk show.
“They both were wary of each other when they were starting out and became Generation X icons. So, they never really became friends,” the source said.
The insider added that Barrymore was upset when she found out that Ryder and Green canoodled with each other in 2008 even though she and the comedian divorced in 2002.
According to the source, Green and Ryder never confirmed the real status of their relationship, but it seemed like an open secret in Hollywood.
After learning about Green and Ryder’s PDA, Barrymore allegedly became more possessive towards her ex.
So, after all these years, Barrymore has no plans to invite Ryder on her talk show.
“People know better than to bring up Winona’s name as a potential guest. Drew could never pretend to like her. This incident was just something that added to the tension between Drew and Winona that has been going on for most of their lives,” the source said.
However, it seems that the tabloids are just pitting Barrymore against all possible celebrities that they could think of.
Last year, there were claims that Barrymore was at odds with Kelly Clarkson because of their competing talk shows.
Some unnamed sources claimed that Clarkson is threatened by Barrymore’s show because she has been in the industry much longer than her and she’s also more popular.
Barrymore is allegedly more fun than Clarkson. And the former also ask better questions when talking to her guests.
However, none of these claims are true. Barrymore was not at odds with Clarkson last year. And they are not competing against each other either.
It is also not true that Barrymore and Ryder and feuding or that the latter has been banned from the former’s talk show.
While there is no indication that the A-listers are good friends, there’s also no reason for them to fight over Green.
Barrymore has long been divorced from Green when the rumors between the latter and Ryder surfaced.
Additionally, it is important to note that the tabloid never published Green and Ryder’s photos while they were allegedly canoodling with each other.
