    This rather awkward interview has gone a bit viral. Basically Ellen jokes-not-jokes about Dakota, who is 30 years younger than her, not inviting her to a recent party. Dakota then shows her the RECEIPTS and the whole thing gets very passive aggressive.



    Ellen has become such a fascinatingly vile person in recent years.

    It seems it was on the same weekend that DeGeneres attended a Dallas Cowboys game and was photographed sitting with George W. Bush. :D

    For sure Ellen by now makes a great case study for "fame has gone to their head".

    Ellen looked so fucking indignant.

    She really didn't need to spend that much time on the matter during an interview.

    It’s hardly that bad! Dakota’s not that good of an interviewee.

    As a child of an A-List family, I’m sure Dakota can see straight through the bullshit of famous people, including Ellen.

    Which she addressed entirely in quite an adult manner.

    It is OK to be friends with someone who doesn't share the same views as you.

    I think Bush is a bit more than someone people disagree with on some views.

    Yeah, what if said friend’s views could be transferred into potentially harmful policies?

    In that case nobody should be friends with any American President...

    Anyway, I didn’t find this to be that bad, Dakota just seems a bit shy/stiff.

    I'm glad someone finally cut through Ellen's facade and complete disinterest. I wonder why she keeps doing the show, there's no energy anymore, and she's made enough dollars to last her an eternity. and I used to really like her!

    whenever Wanda Sykes is on remains hilarious though

    her recent sitting with Oprah was pretty bad too. the absolute low point being them talking about how lavish vacations on big boats full of celebrities are and Oprah turning to the audience, who more than likely has spent the better part of their kids' college savings or saved on the chemo to fly to LA and be on the show, and encouraging them to get a boat because ISN'T IT JUST THE BEST, ELLEN!

    Can't stand Ellen these days. "Champagne Socialist" is the term that always comes to mind.

    I think calling her a socialist is a BIT OF A REACH. I'm sure she loves champagne though.

    It's more a figure of speech. Basically this:

    I think most of us are aware of the phrase. I think the British coined it.

    Yeah I'm pretty sure it's a British phrase. I always think of John Prescott.

    I remember when she tweeted the list of 5* hotels she would be boycotting due to being owned by Brunei royals due to their anti LGBT laws. All well and good but she was encouraging the public to do so in turn. I think most of us have been “boycotting” them our whole lives.

    KindaCool has brought champagne socialist to Moopy in the same way Alexandra Burke invented elephant in the room.

    There certainly seems to be a rising force against her at the moment, doesn't there?

    I don't know if I believe that she's a raging bitch or if she's just an easy target because she's such a cold fish. But I'm happy to grab the popcorn and watch this play out :disco:

    The tweet posted by @COB above makes me feel a bit sad for her though - that guy is just giving people a public platform to bitch to their heart's content and spread any old shit they like. I'm not sure firing some assistants for looking at her wrong, if that happened, makes her Colonel Gaddafi. It's probably commonplace in Hollywood.

    I used to love Ellen, but the more I know about her, the more I dislike her.

    There does seem to be a sinister controlling element to her and Portia’s relationship also that crops up again and again in that thread. The shoddy editing in Arrested Development season 4 was quite strange where she only filmed the bare minimum of scenes, mostly at home on a blue screen, then more or less disappeared.

    Trying to get that waitress sacked for having chipped nail polish really is something else.

    I don’t care about hearing about some diva behaviour. We all love the likes of Mariah, Naomi Campbell and Joan Collins who can even play up to it. The issue is that when your whole schtick is being fun, friendly and relatable, you can’t really get away with not holding up to that image.
