Ellen DeGeneres crashes 'The Bachelor: Women Tell All' - Watch

03/10/2012 by Olivia Allin

Ellen DeGeneres joined "The Bachelor: The Women Tell All" special, in a doctored clip on her talk show, hoping to explain some of the show's drama.

In the clip, which aired on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on March 7, the host took the hot seat, which was occupied by season 16 villain, Courtney Robertson. DeGeneres fielded the questions formerly directed at the finalist and put a unique spin on her answers.

When asked why she called Blakely a stripper, DeGeneres said not so convincingly, "I did not call you a stripper. I don't know if there was music playing or something, you didn't hear me, I said, 'Can you get me a Swiffer.' The mansion was so filthy dirty and I said 'Swiffer...please.'"

In reaction to one of the contestants saying the ever-popular reality line, "I did not come here to make friends," DeGeneres revealed that that is exactly what she was doing.

"I really did come here to make friends. I was not here for Ben. I mean, let's face it, I was here for the girls," DeGeneres said with a wink.

Tensions were high at the "Tell All," especially to Flajnik, who told OnTheRedCarpet.com, "When I got out there, the women seemed a bit riled up, something had stirred the pot a little bit... The girls were all yelling at each other - I thought they were all friends - I hope for them to be friends, but I realize with a situation like this, it's not always the case."

"The Bachelor" season 16 finale is set to air on March 12 at 8:00 p.m. ET and will feature Flajnik proposing once again, this time to either Courtney Robertson or Lindzi Cox in picturesque Switzerland.

DeGeneres recently made headlines after the anti-gay group One Million Moms waged a protest against JC Penney for naming the openly gay host their new spokesperson.

0n March 8, One Million Moms reluctantly ended their campaign to boycott JCPenney after the retailer stood by their decision and the group received negative press from advocacy groups like GLAAD. The group said they are "moving on" to "other issues" that require their attention.

DeGeneres wed actress Portia de Rossi in August of 2008, when same-sex marriages were made legal in California for several months before a majority of voters approved the Proposition 8 ballot initiative to ban them. Prop 8 was overturned on February 7, 2012.

Before she launched her talk show in 2003, DeGeneres starred in her own ABC sitcom, "Ellen," which ran between 1994 and 1998. She came out as a lesbian in April 1997. So did her character, in what became a controversial episode that spurred several companies, such as the Chrysler Corporation to pull its advertisements, and caused scores of viewers to stop watching the show.

DeGeneres' talk series is now one of the most popular daytime programs and has won 35 Emmys, including the 2011 award for Outstanding Talk Show.
