‘I didn’t get to say what I really wanted to say at the Emmys, which is I didn’t get to say Mike white, you know, I just — truly, I just want you all to know that I had such big dreams and expectations as a younger person but what happened is they get sort of fizzled by life and whatever I thought I was going to be queen of Monaco even though someone else did it. But I had these giant ideas,’ she said, as they cut to White wiping back tears.

‘And then you get older and, oh s**t’s going to happen. And, Mike White, you have given me hope — you’ve given me a new beginning. Even if this is the end, you changed my life in a million different ways,’ she said.

Coolidge added, ‘my neighbors are speaking to me and things like that,’ adding, ‘I was never invited to one party on my hill now everyone’s inviting me and I just — you know, it’s to you, Mike White.’

She added, ‘If you don’t know Mike White, this is what you should know. It’s like, he is worried about the world, he’s worried about people, he’s worried about friends of his that aren’t doing well he’s always worried about people you’re worried about animals and I just — he really is one of the greatest people I’ve ever — he gives me so much excitement to be — you make people want to live longer, and I didn’t.’

Hope: 'And then you get older and, oh s**t's going to happen. And, Mike White, you have given me hope -- you've given me a new beginning. Even if this is the end, you changed my life in a million different ways,' she said
