Ellen DeGeneres is giving her condolences to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, in her own funky way.
During her show on Wednesday, Ellen teases that the deciding factor for Kanye’s Monday night proposal was after Kim tweeted this nearly nude selfie, assuming the rapper thought, “Well there’s my soulmate.”
“I wanna say congratulations. I’m happy for you both,” Ellen said.
The talk show host compared Kanye’s proposal to her own, “But I want to warn Kanye – when you start with a stadium proposal, that’s gonna be hard to top. That’s why when I proposed to Portia we were on a riding lawn mower and I gave her 12 carrots. Oh, not a ring. Just carrots. I gave her carrots.”
DeGeneres joked, “I don’t know where is he gonna go from there? Next year he’s gonna have to rent out an even bigger stadium and she’s gonna have to take a picture in even less clothes.”
“Anyway, congratulations to the future Mr. and Mrs. West,” she adds, “I rented out this whole studio for you and I’m giving you this 15 carat dance….(Ellen dances).”
