During her appearance, she spoke about addressing her fame with her daughters with Cash Warren, Honor Marie, 12, and Haven Garner, 9.

“They think I’m so cringey. They think I’m the most cringey mom, the definition of cringey. They actually said that I should use the hashtag #CringeyMom. I’m like, ‘That’s so mean! There are so many more cringey moms than me, guys!’ They’re like, ‘Even saying that, Mom, is cringey,’” she explained.

“For the first beginning of their life, they didn’t know that I was an actress. I remember when Honor was in like first grade, she was mortified and she came home and was like, ‘Why didn’t you tell me!’ She knew I was working at the Honest Company, that’s how they knew me,” she continued.

She also recalled Honor saying at the time, “‘You never told me you’d be in grocery stores and in Target!’ ”

“A friend had brought a magazine to school and put Honor on blast, and Honor was like ‘What is going on? Why are you on this magazine? What is happening here? So I had to break it to her that I was an actress and sometimes I do the magazines — and she felt so betrayed!”
