The Incident

Joan Rivers, was an American comedian and a controversial personality. Griffin admitted saying the following about Ellen De Generes to Access Hollywood Live about Rivers.

“I have to just come clean, here’s the thing: In my very last dinner with Joan Rivers, we would always check in with each other, and I’d be like, ‘Where are you with Ellen?’ and she’d be like, ‘Ugh… still hates me,’ and I’d say, ‘Oh, she thinks I’m mean,'” she said.

Further revealing about the situation of female comedians, Griffin expressed that she appreciates Ellen’s achievements. She feels they are fantastic. She also adds that since there are very few female comics over 50 that are making a living, they need to support each other.

But Griffin also says, “…I just thought, ‘What am I waiting for?’ But almost every time Joan and I would get together, we’d be like, ‘Anything from Ellen? No. You? No,'” reports Perez Hilton. From the above quotes, Kathy Griffin’s disappointment about Ellen DeGeneres is revealed.
