Dressed in a sparkly top, the comedian is seen defending allegations thrown at her by Ben Flajnik's angry bachelorettes in a "deleted scene" from Monday night's (March 5) reunion special.

"I really did come here to make friends. I was not here for Ben. Let's face it, I was here for the girls," she told host Chris Harrison, before winking at the other women.
"I can tell you [my wife] Portia is a little upset because she thought I was going to be on The Amazing Race."
DeGeneres then defended her apparent behaviour, which included explaining why she seemed to call Blakeley a "stripper".
"I did not call you a stripper. I don't know if there was music playing or something that you didn't hear me. I said, 'Can you get me a Swiffer?' The mansion was so filthy dirty. I said, 'Swiffer, please'. There was dust and wine."
As for whether DeGeneres learned any lessons from the show, she told Harrison: "Yes. One is to not mix wine and tequila. Actually, tequila doesn't really match anything. Just stick with tequila if you're going to do it."
The sequence was taken from model Courtney Robertson's segment on The Bachelor: Women Tell All, where she apologised for her behaviour during the show.
The Bachelor finale airs Monday, March 12 at 8/7c on ABC
