Murphy Brown stars Candice Bergen and Faith Ford sat down with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happen Live, where they discussed the recent season premiere and Hillary Clinton’s surprise cameo.

While Clinton got a lot of laughs on camera, both actresses said that things were different off camera. “When she first came on the set, I, of course, started tearing up, and I saw another couple of women on the set tearing up,” said Bergen. “It was very emotional.”

Ford shared her co-star’s sentiments, saying of Clinton, “I hugged her for a very long time, and I felt a lot of compassion for her.” Bergen added, “I think she gets that reaction from thousands and thousands of women. I think everybody just has carried around the grief of her losing, and I think when they see her it’s all released.”

Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen airs Sundays through Thursdays at 11 p.m. on Bravo.
