Yesterday, we learned from a sobbing Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show that she’d given Iggy, the rescue dog she’d got a month ago from animal-rescue service Mutts & Moms, to her haridresser’s two little daughters because Iggy didn’t get along with Ellen’s cats, but subsequently the lady at Mutts & Moms had taken the dog away from the devastated girls after two weeks because Ellen had signed a contract saying if things didn’t work out with iggy she’d return it to M & M and not give it to anyone else. Well, you can imagine the furor that caused among Ellen’s fans. They bombarded M & M’s owner, Marina Batkis, with threatening calls to “burn her house down” and saying, “You slimeball bitches are not worthy of living. How dare you make Ellen cry. Give Iggy back!” But a lawyer for M & M says that Ellen’s public sob story is just an act and that it’s her publicist, the dreaded Kelly Bush, who started the ugliness. In a voice-mail message played back to Page Six, Bush is heard telling Batkis, “This is Kelly Bush. We are filing a legal case against you. We are going to be contacting the media. This is not going to be good for your store or your organization. You did not do the right thing. You need to call back. There is no reason for you to take this dog. Please call back before this gets further out of hand.” Bush denies leaving that message. “They started this by wanting to take it public,” she says. “I was the one who said, ‘Let’s talk about this.'” Developing.
