Kathy Griffin spoke about her ‘friendship’ with Ellen DeGeneres in her new book


Comedian Kathy Griffin described her colleague Ellen as a person who ‘has a mean streak’ that is ‘well known throughout Hollywood’. In Griffin’s book, Celebrity Run-Ins: My A-Z Index, she says, “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.”

“Ellen did a monologue about how mean I am,” Griffin said to US weekly, “I was in the dressing room like, ’Sh*t! You’re another woman comic, c’mon!’ I don’t know if Ellen gets that when I talk about women, I’m joking, 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.”
