Recalling the series of events on Monday's (26Oct15) episode of her U.S. talk show The View, she explained, "Here's what happened: I was doing my show, it came to the end of it, then there's a Q&A (question and answer session).

"I saw people leaving and I thought, 'Uh oh, I've said something that's really offensive', cause people were leaving in droves and I couldn't figure out what was happening, 'cause I still am sick so I can't smell anything, so I couldn't smell the smoke! So I see people leaving and I'm thinking, 'What is happening? What is going on? Did somebody die? What the hell?!' And here comes this big (security) guy who comes and says, 'Your bus is on fire...' I said (to the remaining audience), 'I'm gonna go, thank you for coming to the show, my bus is on fire. See ya!'"
