Kathy Griffin: Ellen DeGeneres Can’t Stand Me!

- Kathy & Ellen have been feuding for years, according to Kathy
- Kathy claims in a new interview that she has been abandoned by Hollywood after her Trump-head photo shoot
- Kathy says “For a long time I’ve sort of been considered an outsider in Hollywood. Ellen DeGeneres can’t stand me and everyone likes her.”
- “There’s nothing liberal or progressive about Hollywood. Not for women. Not for women of a certain age at all."
- Kathy feels that Ellen has not done enough to support other female comics

- According to Kathy, during a 2007 appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, “Ellen did a monologue about how mean I am. I was in the dressing room like, ’S--t! You’re another woman comic, c’mon!’”
- That same year, Ellen had stated in a magazine interview that “I know she had a big thing about wanting to be on the show, and we didn’t book her”... "She did a whole thing that I banned her from the show. I didn’t ban her from the show, because first you have to be on the show to be banned."
- During an interview in November of 2016 to promote her new book, Kathy said “I don’t know if Ellen gets that when I talk about women, I’m joking,” and “I just feel really strongly about women supporting each other, especially women over 50 and women in comedy, because the people who still make decisions are still middle-aged white guys. We have to be better at not turning on each other.”
-Kathy said she has “immense respect” Ellen but “I'm just saying that we would all be better served if we all just really be there for each other the way the dudes are.”

- In her book that Kathy was promoting at the time, Celebrity Run In’s: My A-Z Index, she claimed that "I’m almost positive a certain beloved daytime talk show host once had me kicked out of a backstage dressing room at the Emmy Awards”... “I can’t prove it, but this person, who has short blonde hair, has a mean streak that all of Hollywood knows about.”
- Shortly after the book was released, Kathy did another interview where she said that Ellen was “furious” with her after accusing Ellen of having a "mean streak"
- During a phone conversation between the two, Kathy says Ellen “just really was on a rant.”
- When Kathy mentioned that she would like influential women to support other women more, Kathy says Ellen "was like, ‘I don’t have to have anybody on my show I don’t like.’”
- Per Kathy, Ellen told her “I don’t hate you,” and Kathy responded, “I don’t think you hate me.” But after hanging up, Kathy said she “started sobbing.”
