The Grey’s Anatomy actress slammed none other than Today co-hosts Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford for consuming alcohol on air! It sounds like Ellen Pompeo is not a big fan of Winesday Wednesday!
But that’s not all! Her grievance with the format of the show is in fact related to a bigger issue. Here’s what Pompeo had to say!
Ellen called out the TV hosts, playfully criticizing the show’s format that shows the two women drinking alcohol every morning.
However, that was just a part of the problem Ellen Pompeo has with the show as a whole.
Apparently, the actress was pretty upset about an article shared on Hoda and Kathie Lee’s Twitter account, which only focused on a particular part of a Red Table Talk interview she gave not too long ago – the fact that Ellen and her former co-star on Grey’s Anatomy, Patrick Dempsey, no longer keep in touch.
Indeed, that was something ‘juicy’ she revealed during the chat, but the main focus of it was raising biracial kids with her hubby Chris Ivery.
Pompeo tweeted: ‘Hey here is a suggestion!! Maybe all of you lay off the booze and pay attention to the actual conversation that took place? ??????.’ Yikes!
It may have been just a harmless joke, but still, that was a great burn!
The actress was quick to make it very clear that she has no issues with the hosts, tweeting that: ‘@klgandhoda and whoever is in charge of this account.. the two women you work for deserve to be represented a bit more dignified.’
Ellen’s funny diss came just the night before it was officially announced by NBC that Kathie Lee is leaving the fourth hour segment after no less than a decade of hosting it.
