"There was a joke, and I can't remember, but it was a joke I think about drugs and it was about Whitney Houston, and I was like, 'I don't want to say that,'" she recalled during the Comedy Actress Roundtable. She said, "Artists give so much... and so to make fun of what was a challenge and an illness [isn't right]."

Kudos to Regina for standing her ground.
