DeGeneres and Heche began dating in 1997 before breaking up in 2000.

OK, here’s how it went down: One of the outfits Heche highlighted in the video was her match-y getup with DeGeneres at the 1998 Golden Globes.

“Why do I look like a hippie?” Heche comments on the outfit, before answering her own question: “It’s because Ellen didn’t want me to dress sexy.”

Damn. Well, there you have it.
