The show must go on…
It's been a little over a month since Drew Barrymore announced that she and Will Kopelman were getting a divorce after three years of marriage, but she's finally ready to talk about it.
The former child star made her first talk show appearance since the breakup on the debut of Chelsea Handler's new Netflix late night series on Wednesday, and was not shy about her true feelings!

While other surprise guests like Chris Martin, Will Arnett, Ellie Kemper, Robin Wright, Laura Prepon, and Pitbull ensured we'd be coming back for more Chelsea, it was Drew's comments about her "failure" of a marriage that touched us the most.
The mother-of-two got surprisingly candid with her BFF Chelsea about the shame that comes with such a public separation, saying:
"I put in my statement, about the divorce, the word 'failure,' because it's so honest. When you break up with somebody, you're like, 'Yeah, that didn't work.' When you get divorced you're like, 'I'm the biggest failure. This is the biggest failure.' It's so shameful and hard to actually go through that, even privately.
It's a tough time. It's a hard thing to go through. It's like you're being put on a cheese grater and every second, going, 'Aah! This wasn't the plan!'"
We still love you, Drew!!!
Luckily, it doesn't sound like things have been completely terrible for Drew, Will, nor their respective families so far:
"There has been this really nice feeling of something very fluid and positive and the opposite of how I felt inside. Everyone has just been so cool and chill and nice about everything that it quelled by own fears and demons about how we sort of have to go through things in life."
We're just glad she's not alone right now.
Still, despite the heavy subject matter… that was one hell of a debut!
Will U be tuning into Chelsea every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday on Netflix??
