Throwback: Ellen and Rosie's Lesbian Wordplay

Throwback: Ellen and Rosie's Lesbian Wordplay


Rosie O'Donnell revealed on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live, Ellen Degeneres sort of came out before the famous "Puppy Episode" of her eponymous 1990s sitcom.

Andy Cohen pulled a clip from O'Donnell's former daytime talk show. The clip was from an episode that aired before both DeGeneres and O'Donnell came out as lesbians. When O'Donnell asks DeGeneres what to expect on the upcoming season, DeGeneres hints, "We do find out that the character is Lebanese. There have been clues. You see her eating baba ghanoush."

O'Donnell says, "Maybe I'm Lebanese. I could be Lebanese myself."

Nowadays, O'Donnell said she doesn't get to see DeGeneres too much anymore, but that she admires her friend.
