Ellen, 61, walked out on stage with her tongue out as she let the audience soak in her outfit. The comedian wore a lingerie top with pasties, a choker with a sequin letter E, a sequined fringe skirt, fishnet stockings, high heels and a long blonde wig.
“My costume this year is a tribute to Cardi B in the movie Hustlers. I can’t be Cardi B, I’m Cardi E. E is for Ellen, it’s also my bra size,” she joked. The talk show host was fitted with large prosthetic boobs and jokingly credited Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company for “inflating” her chest.
Ellen revealed that her crew has been getting her to wear “sexier” costumes every Halloween. “I'll know it's time to stop doing the show when they send me out in two coasters and a dinner napkin,” she joked.
After she told the audience that she was practicing how to say “Okurrr” like Cardi, 27, the “Press” rapper came out and complimented Ellen’s look. The Hustlers star was dressed in a houndstooth skirt suit, which Ellen later remarked looked “classy, yet naughty.”
Ellen started to show her twerk skills, but Cardi wasn’t too impressed. The former Love & Hip Hop star gave Ellen a quick lesson to improve. The talk show host then bent over in front of Cardi and twerked again. “I'll give you a couple of bucks right there,” the rapper told Ellen. “I'd give you 20 dollars, I'd get a lap dance from you.”
Once the two sat down for an interview, Cardi revealed she’s dressing up as Moana with her daughter Kulture right before her Halloween show in Las Vegas. “I’m tryna go trick-or-treating for me,” she admitted. “Because she can’t eat candy, ya know. That’s the fun thing about being a mom, you got a reason to trick-or-treat now.”
Cardi also discussed the success of her Netflix series Rhythm & Flow and told Ellen she’s thinking about signing some of the rap talent. Since Ellen was dressed as “Cardi E” she said, “You should sign me. I got the Cardi E thing going I just need the rap.”
