Ellen Visits Bethenny, Denies Rift Between Talk Show Hosts

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Consider the air cleared.

Following a report that alleged Bethenny Frankel is irate at Ellen DeGeneres over her show's poor ratings and weak guest bookings, the talk show hosts set the record straight today when the latter appeared on the former's program via satellite.

Ellen on Bethenny

"A lot of people like to make a lot of comments in the press about different relationships... and I try to explain to people that you and I are really friends," Bethenny told Ellen. "We actually go to dinner... I've been to your house. I genuinely love you and look up to you and I call you when things are rough or when I need advice."

DeGeneres agreed and joked that she's never been invited to Frankel's house, which led to a startling admission from Bethenny:

She still lives with Jason Hoppy!

Yes, the ex-Bravo star actually shares a residence with the man from whom she's going through an ugly divorce, as Hoppy and Frankel battle for custody over little daughter Bryn.

"I am not going there," DeGeneres said of the Hoppy news. "I did hear that there was a story that I was distancing myself from you and from the show and I wanted my name off of the show...

"There is absolutely not one crumb of truth in that at all. I am not distancing myself from your show, I love you. I am so proud of you. I am proud to have my name on it and I think that you are amazing and we are friends."

Bethenny grew teary-eyed as Ellen continued:

"There is no one doing what you are doing on television right now. You really represent women and talk to women and give women advice in a way that nobody is doing and I love listening to your advice."

Jeez, ladies. Get a room already, will ya?!? Oh, right. Sorry. Hoppy would probably be there.

Why mock women when they are being supportive of one another? Idiot press. The truth is most women do support each other. Why can't the press accept that? Nice doesn't sell? That's a myth.

Ive been reading all these ratings and reviews about Bethenny saying horrible things. People go online to say hurtful things, you really think people comment on how great her show is and how great she looks?? NO. They go online and say bad things about her. I LOVE her show, its real not "scripted"yes, things may get heated but that's great! Its the real way of the world unfortunatly. I hope she stays on tv because I think she's great. To all you haters out there, go stay on your couch and complain to yourself...jealous bit@hes.

To the previous poster, any person, especially a woman, who would take the time to sit down and write a nasty post about someones' looks should be ashamed. If you do not enjoy her show or disagree with her views, then write about that. Your comment was juvinile at best. It wouldnt surprise me one bit if you were a bully when you were younger or are raising a child who will be a bully. Anyone who feels the need to make fun of someones' looks is just an ugly person on the INSIDE!
