Move over Brian Austin Green, you’re not the only one getting papped on intimate California lunch dates! This past weekend, Queen of Mean Ellen DeGeneres and Kevin Hart were spotted dining at a hotel in Montecito, CA. Ellen wore a tropical shirt with khakis, while a chin-masking Kevin opted for “child’s PJs on a hot night” eleganza.
These two have been friends for a while. Kevin’s a frequent guest on Ellen’s show, and last year she famously came to his defense after he was canned from hosting the Oscars because of old homophobic tweets. Now I guess it’s his turn to return the favor and stand up for evil.
Here are the shots. And, no, they’re not holding hands, as I originally thought (although a Kevin + Ellen affair would be such a juicy twist!):

This isn’t the first time Kevin’s shown his Ellen-solidarity. Last week he joined Katy Perry, Diane Keaton, Alec Baldwin, and Ashton Kutcher in defending her terrible personality. They all opted for the tried and true, “hey, she was nice to ME, a world-famous, wealthy celeb!”, but Kevin went a step further by calling her “one of the dopest people on the fucking planet.”
Here’s the post, which tackles the controversial subject of (say it with me, everyone!) “CANCEL CULTURE!”:

It’s crazy to see my friend go thru what she’s going thru publicly. I have known Ellen for years and I can honestly say that she’s one of the dopest people on the fucking planet. She has treated my family and my team with love and respect from day 1. The internet has become a crazy world of negativity….we are falling in love with peoples down fall. It’s honestly sad…When did we get here? I stand by the ones that I know and that I love. Looking forward to the future where we get back to loving one another….this hate shit has to stop. Hopefully it goes out of style soon….This post is not meant to disregard the feelings of others and their experiences….It’s simply to show what my experiences have been with my friend. Love you for life Ellen…
So, when Kevin says, “this hate shit has to stop”, he isn’t referring to Ellen leading a toxic workplace. Or how she won’t let the riff-raff look her in the eye. Or the time she Trunchbullied an 11-year-old kid in the funky seventies. No, no, nooo. Kevin’s talking about the hate that his rich and powerful friend is receiving based on years of her hateful behavior. Huh. OK. Welp, he owed her one, and now his debt is paid.
Anyway, stay tuned for the next breaking Ellen story. Probably has something to do with her involvement in the JFK assassination. Sure, she was only five-years-old, but we’ve all seen (or read the Wikipedia plot summary of, because that shit looks too scary) The Omen.
