Ellen DeGeneres apologizes for calling 'Bachelor' Brad Womack a jerk

By Christopher Rocchio, 11/29/2007 

Ellen DeGeneres was probably echoing the sentiments of women across America when she called The Bachelor eleventh-season star Brad Womack a "jerk" during Tuesday's broadcast of her syndicated The Ellen DeGeneres Show, however she apparently regrets the harsh words she used.

"That's not who I am.  I don't like to judge people.  I don't want to call someone a jerk," said DeGeneres during the Thursday broadcast of her talk show. 

DeGeneres called Womack a "jerk" during a Tuesday interview with DeAnna Pappas, who along with Jenni Croft was rejected by the 35-year-old Austin, TX bar owner during last week's broadcast of The Bachelor's eleventh-season final Rose Ceremony.

"I may have called [Womack] a jerk.  I'm pretty sure I did. Cause I thought he was a jerk. Cause I thought he led the girls on," said DeGeneres.  "I have no idea what his story is -- even though I thought what he did was wrong -- I still shouldn't have called him a jerk,"

DeGeneres issued an apology to Womack and decided it might be best to get his side of the story.

"I felt bad, so I thought, 'Well, I should have him on the show to explain himself,'" she said on Thursday's broadcast.  "So we called [Womack], and it turns out he had watched the show [when I called him a jerk]... and he's mad, because he likes me, and he's a fan.  Now, if I had known that, I would not have called him a jerk."

Womack will have the opportunity to explain himself as a guest on Friday's broadcast of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

"I do want to hear what his excuse is," DeGeneres said.  "Because it was wrong, what he did... Not a jerk, but wrong. Maybe he is a jerk. We'll find out [on Friday], I don't know."
