    She finally explained what happened in story time caption.

    The story goes like this:


    It was the NYC premier of Charlie’s Angels 2 and I had hired an old school bus with Christmas lights and hanging rubber chickens to take us there! And I was like “trust me! This is going to be so fun to show up in! And then it broke down! Literally “smoking from the hood” broke. And so we walked the rest of the way. But not before I grabbed the champers and said “well this is good too” and off to our fun evening we went. And we’re all still peas in a pod.)

    So there you have it! The bottle was brought to a red carpet because their school bus with Christmas lights and rubber chickens broke down, so they had to walk to the premiere with the bottle of bub. I love history.
