Rachel, 34, didn't air their dirty laundry on the late night show but she did confirm that their once-tight bond is a thing of the past. "I can’t say. I promised I wouldn’t say. But it was enough for me to not want to be friends with her anymore. And I never will be," she told Andy Cohen when asked what happened to cause the rift.
