Katy subsequently looked shocked and pretended to act woozy, prompting Sara exclaim excitedly, “If Katy lays on the table, I think I’m going to pass out.” Katy then responded, “Honey, you’ve been laying on the table too much.”
After seeing the episode, Sara, who quit American Idol during Hollywood Week, reacted to the awkward exchange. “It was embarrassing to have that on TV,” she said in a TikTok at the time. “It was hurtful. I think that women supporting and uplifting other women is so cool and I think that mom shaming is super lame. I think that it’s hard enough to be a mom and it’s hard enough to be a woman.”
Katy has not responded to Sara Beth’s video.
