The media mogul added,
“During the pandemic when Riverdale was shut down for about six months, it was the first time we had been together uninterrupted for like, five years. I prefer togetherness. I really enjoy being around him — he’s great company, so funny, so smart, insightful, pragmatic, and super level-headed. He doesn’t get rattled, and that’s very reassuring and comforting to be around.”
