When Ellen DeGeneres opened up the Oscars on Sunday, we were totally hoping for hilarity! What we actually got? A whole bunch of shade!
And Liza Minnelli was dealt a whole palm tree!
Although the 67-year-old star made some faces when the camera panned over to her, Liza is finally speaking out about her thoughts on the Oscar hosts' drag queen jokes!
"I think she thought it would be funny, but she never stopped after she said it and said, 'My friend Liza Minnelli.' So I think it went a little astray on her. I don't think she meant any harm at all. She's a wonderful lady."
Liza handled that with such grace!
Ellen should maybe think twice about poking fun of this AH-Mazing lady next time!
