"I don't know why they do this," the daytime talk show host added. "We're kind of flattered."
"We really don't almost break up, we don't fight, we're madly in love, and I guess it's boring," she continued.
Ellen also talked about Caitlyn Jenner, who joined Ellen as a guest on the season opener of her daytime talk show. Ellen admits that the I Am Cait star's conflicted thoughts on gay marriage confused her.
"She still has a judgment about gay marriage," Ellen said. "I said, 'You're wanting people to understand and accept you. And you still have a judgment about gay people, and marriage.'"
"I don't fully understand all of that, but I want her to be happy," Ellen concluded. "Which is what I want for her, for me."
"I have to admit that I remember 15 years ago, 20 years ago, whenever it was the whole gay marriage issue came up at first, I was not for it," Caitlyn told Ellen on her talk show. "I mean, I like tradition and it's always been between a man and a woman, and I’m thinking I don’t quite get it."
"But as time goes on, like a lot of people on this issue, I've really changed thinking here to, I don't ever want to stand in front of anybody's happiness," she continued. "That's not my job, OK. If that word 'marriage' is really, really that important to you, I can go with it."
Ellen also got real about her American Idol stint on Howard Stern's show, calling it "one of the worst decisions I've ever made."
"As a fan of the shows, it doesn't matter that I sing or I know anything about pitch or anything, I'm like everybody else at home. It's 'American Idol,’” she explained. “So I thought I'm gonna represent those people at home that have opinions...but then I just thought, like Howard says, I can't break this person's heart. Let somebody else do that."
