Anne Heche Opens Up About Ellen DeGeneres Relationship In Posthumous Memoir: ‘I Simply Fell In Love!’

By Shakiel Mahjouri.

Anne Heche was planning on opening up about her relationship with Elle DeGeneres in the late 1990s.

Heche, who died at age 54 on Aug. 14 after a car crash in Los Angeles, was penning the memoir Call Me Anne. The book is a followup to her 2001 book Call Me Crazy and will be posthumously released next year.

“I was labelled ‘outrageous’ because I fell in love with a woman,” Heche wrote in Call Me Anne, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “I had never been with a woman before I dated Ellen.”

Heche said she was blackballed by Hollywood for her relationship with DeGeneres; meanwhile, the “Ellen DeGeneres Show” star went on to have a supremely successful and lucrative career.

“I did not, personally, identify as a lesbian. I simply fell in love!” she wrote. “It was, to be clear, as odd to me as anyone else. There were no words to describe how I felt.

“Gay didn’t feel right, and neither did straight. Alien might be the best fit, I sometimes thought. What, why, and how I fell in love with a person instead of their gender, I would have loved to have answered if anyone had asked, but as I said earlier, no one ever did. I am happy that I was able to tell you in this book — once and for all.”

Call Me Anne will be released in January by Start Publishing.
