It’s water below the bridge, however there’s a purpose why Rosie O’Donnell by no means appeared on Ellen DeGeneres’ speak present.

Throughout a current look on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,” Cohen talked about how a lot he beloved the “Lebanese” second O’Donnell had with DeGeneres on the previous’s speak present.

Cohen was referencing DeGeneres’ 1996 look on O’Donnell’s daytime speak present through which 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 Show” that ended its run in Might after 19 seasons.

“After my show went off the air, and her’s was coming on the air, Larry King was on with Ellen and he said, ‘Whatever happened to Rosie O’Donnell? Her show went down the tubes. She came out as a lesbian and disappeared,’” O’Donnell defined. “And Ellen said, and I’m quoting, ‘I don’t know Rosie. We’re not friends.’”

O’Donnell stated she watching together with her then spouse Kelli Carpenter, whom she requested, “Did I just hear that or was that, like, a hallucination auditory voice?”

“I’m like, no,” O’Donnell stated. “And that’s what happened. It hurt my feelings like a baby and I never really got over it.”

CNN has reached out to a consultant for DeGeneres for remark.
