Reese Witherspoon and Ellen DeGeneres were in one heated debate over who loves Oprah Winfrey more in this LOL-worthy clip from Thursday’s “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”

During the segment, DeGeneres discussed the rivalry between her and Witherspoon over Winfrey’s affection which made the TV maven’s head spin.

“But, why do we have a better or a best [friend]?” Winfrey said.

“That’s what I said, ‘why do we have to have a better or best friend?’ Let’s just acknowledge that I am the better friend. Why do we have to talk about it so much?” DeGeneres said. To the shock of the host and the delight of the audience, the “Legally Blonde” star appeared onstage out of nowhere. That’s when things got a little heated between Witherspoon and DeGeneres that made Winfrey have to split it up.

“Why can’t we all just be best friends?” Winfrey said. “The thing about it is, all of these years when I have had new friends come into the fold Gayle [King] has been like, ‘oh, I am so excited for your new friend.’ Aren’t you excited for her to come into the fold?”

After cutting to a commercial break, DeGeneres and Witherspoon went head-to-head with questions about Winfrey to find out who really is her BFF. Things got off to a shaky start when both Witherspoon and DeGeneres got two of the first questions wrong! But, DeGeneres turned things around when she correctly answered that Winfrey starred on her ’90s sitcom as a therapist. One point for DeGeneres!

As the two women continued to fail at the questions, Winfrey shook her head, “This is so much fun, isn’t it? My God my friends know so much about me!”


Witherspoon finally got herself on the board when she correctly answered that Winfrey won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, but it was DeGeneres who came out on top when she got herself a second and final point for answering that Dr. Phil McGraw appeared on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” every Tuesday telling people to “get real.”

Looks like DeGeneres really does know her better!
