Are American Idol alum Ellen DeGeneres and former Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel in the midst of a nasty feud? Apparently, the answer is a resounding no. The two took some time to clear the air during a recent chat on Bethenny’s talk show.
It’s no secret that Bethenny Frankel’s talk show has elicited less-than-stellar ratings. But according to a recent batch of rumors, the reality star blamed Ellen DeGeneres’ failure to snag hotshot celebs (not, you know, Bethenny’s grating personality) as the real reason behind the show’s dismal performance.
In an attempt to set the record straight, Bethenny invited Ellen on her show for a brief chat. Ellen was not able to appear in person, but she did chat with her fellow talk show host via satellite. During their candid conversation, Bethenny admitted, “I was just telling my audience how much I love you and how amazing you’ve been to me.” She then went on to explain that, although the media often causes some confusion related to the true nature of celebrity relationships, she and Ellen are, in fact, good friends. “I genuinely love you and look up to you and I call you when things are rough or when I need advice and that’s just the nature of this relationship.”
Ellen agreed, adding that, despite what people think about rumors always being true on some level, “There is absolutely not one crumb of truth in [the rivalry rumors] at all…I am not distancing myself from your show.”
Turns out, Ellen Degeneres and Bethenny Frankel are best buds after all! But we still have to wonder if, at some level, Ellen regrets taking on this ratings disaster. What do you think? Sound off in the comments section below!
