Ellen DeGeneres Does NOT Want You Comparing Her To Oprah! Find Out WHY!

ellen degeneres denies oprah winfrey comparisons new york times feature

Well, that's a strange reaction!

For a woman who works in television, one might think there could be no higher honor than to draw comparisons to the queen of daytime, Mrs. Oprah Winfrey!

So why did Ellen DeGeneres, O's heir apparent, get a tad touchy when someone suggested they might be similar?

The New York Times just published a terrific feature about Ellen, her TV show, and her important cultural impact, but we were super surprised to learn the voice of Finding Nemo's Dory does NOT appreciate being compared to Oprah!!!

When asked about it, she suddenly got tense.

Then she revealed:

"Oprah is very business minded. I’m just not that way. I’m happy my show is successful. But I am also just content just to be me.”

Wow! We wonder why she's distancing herself from Oprah when most people would be flattered by the mere suggestion?!

Is it possible there's bad blood between these two daytime divas?

Naaaaaaaah! They're both way too AMAZEBALLZ for something as plebeian as a petty feud!

Ellen just enjoys marching dancing to the beat of her own drummer, that's all!

    Wait what, where did she do any of this distancing you pulled out your butt. All she said was O is business minded and she isn't. Nothing to see here but you go ahead on making things up like there is for click bait. doesn't seem to the normal person to be any bad blood. Again making things up when you can't think of anything to say, you are really an idiot aren't you?

    Not business minded? Just happy to be herself? Okay, could she kindly cancel the Bethany show she executive produces, as she is happily being herself not concerned with business and ratings.

    It's a stretch, but, perhaps business-minded vs. just being me alludes to Oprah choosing to not just be herself. And that self is… like Ellen?

    I think that they are both great in difference ways. You can't compare the two - I like how different they both are in their own ways, doesn't that make us all human? But for Ellen to say that she's not in it for the business, ha sorry but have you watched her show? It's ALL SPONSORS. After two words of each sentence she mentions a company etc and when she donates money it's always a sponsored money. Her show consists of maybe 15-20 minutes of her actually talking and the other 20-25 is all sponsor related content on top of that she has commercials so rake in the dough Ellen! So much for not being "business minded."
