Anne Heche broke her public silence over her split last month with Ellen DeGeneres when she addressed the organization Women in Film on Friday in Beverly Hills, Calif.
Accepting a Lucy award (named for Lucille Ball) for her role developing and directing the HBO movie If These Walls Could Talk 2 _ which co-starred DeGeneres and Sharon Stone _ Heche initially stumbled over her former partner's name, Reuters reports.
"It means so much to me to be able to have Sharon Stone and Ellen DeGen . . ." Heche said, placing her hands over her face and adding, "Shake it out, baby!"
Composing herself, she continued: "No matter what you've heard, I love Ellen DeGeneres. She is a genius . . . a marvelous woman so dear to my life, and I love her."
