HOLLYWOOD — Even Gloria Steinem‘s post-election words of encouragement could not distract guests from the frosty winter air during Ms. mag’s woman of the year party for Kathy Najimy at the Spider Club on Monday night.
Ellen DeGeneres admitted that she had not heard Camryn Manheim or Ed Begley Jr.‘s previous remarks because she was busy keeping warm at the venue’s indoor bar.
“She is so passionate about everything that she does — it’s the exact opposite of me,” DeGeneres joked during her tribute to Najimy. “I just stay home and go “good for you’.”
