Comedian Kathy Griffin said that she is not Ellen Degeneres' "cup of tea" during a recent interview.

Griffin, 58, spoke about her long-running feud with the talk show host on Good Day New York. The pair reportedly fell out after Ellen refused to take part in a tribute to late comedian, Joan Rivers:

“One of the things that really hurt Joan, and we talked about it at our last meal together, was that Ellen always shunned her and Ellen thought she was vulgar and not funny,” Griffin said at the time.

"I am apparently not her cup of tea," Griffin said. "But I think she is great. I am not a comedy snob."

She was actually full of praise of super-rich Ellen:

"I'm vulgar, but I think it's great there's clean comedians and prop comedians and topical comedians and observational comedians. I'm just happy whenever a female, especially a female over 50, is still in the game."
