The former ‘View’ co-host hopped on TikTok on Monday, February 21, to tell her fans to Google before you meet a celebrity.
Rosie, her son, his girlfriend and actress Fran Drescher grabbed some grub at Nobu in Malibu, CA. over the weekend.
Given Nobu is a celebrity HOT SPOT, it’s no surprise the actress ran into some other very famous faces.
In one video posted to the platform, Rosie explains that she saw Nick and Priyanka at Nobu and decided to introduce herself and throw out some compliments.
“So, I said, ‘Hi, Nick Jonas, you were great in Kingdom,'” Rosie begins.
She then turned her attention to Priyanka.
“‘Hi, I know your dad.’ She goes, ‘You do? Who’s my dad?’ And I go, ‘Deepak.’ She goes, ‘No, and Chopra is a common name,’” Rosie said.

Deepak Chopra is an Indian-born American author and alternative medicine advocate. A prominent figure in the New Age movement, his books and videos have made him one of the best-known and wealthiest figures in alternative medicine.
Clearly, this little mistake made Rosie red with embarrassment.
“I felt so embarrassed. Didn’t you think that Nick Jonas was married to Deepak Chopra’s daughter? Am I the only one who thought that,” she asked her son.
Rosie follows up with an apology to Nick and “to the Chopra wife, I apologize too.”
This (backhanded) apology didn’t sit well with some people.
Rosie Adds Insult To Injury By Calling Priyanka,’The Chopra Wife.’
“Priyanka Chopra is one of the most famous Indian actors in the world. Love you, but let’s not call her ‘Nick’s wife,’” one person wrote.
Another replied, “Somone Chopra and ‘the Chopra wife’ sound worse to me than the mistake. I mean, the device for making TikToks also has Google.”
“Maybe learn her name if you’re going to apologize,” an unimpressed fan commented.
I mean… they’re not wrong.
Fans Were Unimpressed With Her First Apology!
It wasn’t long before Rosie got wind of the PO’d people in her TikTok comments and decided it was time for her to apologize again.
“Okay, good morning, everybody. So, I’m reading the comments about my Nick Jonas and his wife, Priyanka Chopra, who I mistakenly thought was Deepak’s (Chopra) daughter,” she started off. “Anyway, Priyanka is her name and um I just wanna apologize to her and to everyone who thought that it was really inappropriate of me. Sorry you know. Sometimes I f**k up.”

Nick and Priyanka recently announced the arrival of their first child together.
The couple welcomed a baby girl via surrogate in January.
“We are overjoyed to confirm that we welcomed a baby via surrogate. We respectfully ask for privacy during this special time as we focus on our family. Thank you so much,” their joint statement read.
