Liza Minnelli

Ellen Called Me a Drag Queen ...

And it Wasn't Funny

Liza Minnelli didn't like the joke Ellen DeGeneres cracked about her at the Oscars ... suggesting she was actually a drag queen.

Liza and a male companion hit up Craig's restaurant in West Hollywood Monday night ... and Liza made it clear -- Ellen's joke backfired big time. 

Liza's note to Ellen:  She should have stopped and acknowledged they were friends, but instead Ellen blew through to the next joke, so it sounded mean.

But Liza says she's sure Ellen was filled with the best of intentions.

It was an attempt for Ellen De Genitials to think she was funny. She isn't.

DeGenerate was the lamest, rudest, must unfunny host the Oscars have ever had. Hopefully she will not be returning anytime soon.

Really? Please. I suppose you are also offended by the drag queens who also portray you. Be happy that she made a joke about you, it keeps you relevant!

WTF    

Pretty much everybody at the show thought it was hysterical. So did I. I also thought she was an impersonator. Now who's the joke on?

I cannot understand why anyone thinks that Ellen idiot is in any way funny. Her camp routines went out of style in the 70s with Don Rickles.

Did anyone else witness the drunken and doped up stupor Liza was in when interviewed during the pre-Oscar show? The slurring and incoherent words that came out of her mouth, the faces she made and the fact that she cpould barely stand up was pathetic. The only talent in that family were her parents. Judy Garland was superhuman in talent and her father was a very gifted director. Liza has held on to her mother's coattails for life. She has no talent and how she could have ever won an Oscar boggles the mind. Again, if her parents weren't who they were we would never had heard of Liza.
