DeGeneres refuses to read “Call Me Crazy”

Ellen DeGeneres won’t be making any trips to the local bookstore anytime soon.

The 43-year-old actress says she has no intention of reading her former girlfriend Anne Heche‘s memoir Call Me Crazy, because she’s not interested in what Heche has to say about their previous relationship.

“I don’t really care,” DeGeneres told the Los Angeles Times on Sunday. “Her truth is the truth. I would also like to get to the point that I’m not referenced in everything she does.”

Heche went public about her mental breakdown in a heartfelt interview with Barbara Walters on ABC’s 20/20 on Sept. 5, saying her illness lasted until after her breakup with DeGeneres in August 2000.

The couple, together from 1997 to 2000, shared homes in Ojai and the Hollywood Hills, both of which DeGeneres plans to sell, The Associated Press reported.

Heche, 32, who recently married cameraman Coleman Laffoon, told Walters that she suffered from a split personality. Her alter ego’s name was Celestia and she talked to God.

DeGeneres in the other hand, is currently concentrating on promoting her new CBS sitcom The Ellen Show as well as on hosting the Emmy Awards on Oct. 7.

“My life is back on track now and I’m really grateful and thrilled to be working again,” DeGeneres told Reuters. “I’ve got so much going on right now that I don’t need to be distracted. I’m just working on me.”

But Heche has one good thing to say about her failed relationship, telling The New York Times that it was “the best sex I ever had.”

DeGeneres doesn’t mind admitting one thing, “It was the first time I ever had my heart broken,” she said. “I’d always been the one to leave relationships…and it was the one time I really believed ‘this is forever.'”
