It’s water underneath the bridge, however there’s a motive why Rosie O’Donnell by no means appeared on Ellen DeGeneres’ speak present.
Throughout a recent appearance on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,” Cohen talked about how a lot he liked the “Lebanese” second O’Donnell had with DeGeneres on the previous’s speak present.
Cohen was referencing DeGeneres’ 1996 appearance on O’Donnell’s daytime talk show wherein the 2 playfully danced round hypothesis about DeGeneres being homosexual. She formally got here out months later.
Cohen then requested O’Donnell why she had by no means appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Present” that ended its run in May after 19 seasons.
“After my present went off the air, and her’s was approaching the air, Larry King was on with Ellen and he stated, ‘No matter occurred to Rosie O’Donnell? Her present went down the tubes. She got here out as a lesbian and disappeared,’” O’Donnell defined. “And Ellen stated, and I’m quoting, ‘I don’t know Rosie. We’re not associates.’”
O’Donnell stated she watching together with her then spouse Kelli Carpenter, whom she requested, “Did I simply hear that or was that, like, a hallucination auditory voice?”
“I’m like, no,” O’Donnell stated. “And that’s what occurred. It harm my emotions like a child and I by no means actually obtained over it.”
CNN has reached out to a consultant for DeGeneres for remark.
