Did Rosie O’Donnell accept Ellen DeGeneres’ apology?
A few years ago, Ellen DeGeneres denied knowing or being friends with Rosie O’Donnell during an appearance on Larry King Live, People notes. Recently, Rosie addressed the incident and opened up about how it made her feel.
In a recent interview for The Hollywood Reporter, Rosie mentioned that she had received an apology from Ellen and opened up about whether they are on good terms now.
“She texted me a few weeks ago checking in, seeing how I’m doing, and I asked her how she’s surviving not being on TV. It’s a big transition. But we’ve had our weirdness in our relationship. I don’t know if it’s jealousy, competition or the fact that she said a mean thing about me once that really hurt my feelings.” Rosie told the outlet.
When asked to provide context, Rosie addressed Ellen’s comments while talking to Larry King. “She said it on Larry King Live. Larry King said, ‘Whatever happened to Rosie O’Donnell’s show? She went down the tubes as soon as she came out.’ And the quote that Ellen said was, ‘I don’t know Rosie. We’re not friends. ‘I was watching TV in bed with my wife going, ‘Did she just say that?’” O’Donnell said.
“It would never occur to me to say ‘I don’t know her’ about somebody whose babies I held when they were born. It wouldn’t be in my lexicon of choices to ever say.” Rosie added.
When asked about the text messages, Rosie mentioned what the messages read and recalled printing Ellen s comments on T-shirts. “She wrote, ‘I’m really sorry and I don’t remember that.’ I guess she saw me talk about it on Andy Cohen’s show. I remembered it so well, I had T-shirts printed and I gave them to my staff that said ‘I don’t know Rosie. We’re not friends.’”
