Cohen then requested O’Donnell why she had by no means appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” that ended its run in May after 19 seasons.

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

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

“I’m like, no,” O’Donnell stated. “And that’s what occurred. It hurt my emotions like a child and I by no means actually obtained over it.”
