Liza Says Ellen’s “Transphobic” Joke Hurt Her Feelings, But She’s Flattered People Were On Her Side

liza-minnelliI got my feelings hurt a little bit, but not a lot. And I got over it really quickly. Ellen is terrific, she’s really sweet. I don’t think she would have necessarily gone out of her way to hurt my feelings — I mean, we know each other. I just think maybe she was advised badly…In a funny kind of way, you’re flattered when people are on your side so much. But Ellen is wonderful, and I’m so sorry that all of this caused [stress] for her. But I had a great time.”
