The 48-year-old had called the popular series "gross" on her talk show on Tuesday, sparking reaction from host Chris Harrison and the show's creator Mike Fleiss, who warned Ripa the franchise 'pays your salary'.

The ABC feud about The Bachelor franchise is growing, and now, Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo has come to Kelly Ripa's defense.

Ripa's co-host, Ryan Seacrest, announced that the titular Bachelorette, Hannah B., will be appearing on the show, and Ripa confused her for the previous "winner" of The Bachelor, Colton Underwood's girlfriend, Cassie. All you have to do is look at me and blink, and I will show you the way'. While they didn't go to war on Thursday's Live, Brown told ET shortly after her appearance that she and Ripa still aren't on the same page.

"I can't stand the idea of 25 exceptional women fighting over one ordinary fella, in my opinion", she said. You know how I feel, ladies!

"I am very against women fighting over a guy".

"Having said that, " Ripa added, addressing the "Bachelor"-lovers in the audience, "All of you women still watch that gross, gross show". "I was like, 'Ew".

Is Fleiss' attack less based on actual network numbers and more based on viewing female stars as inferior??As for Ripa, she still hasn't responded to the tweet.

Series creator and producer Fleiss also slammed the morning show host, writing on Twitter: 'Easy, @KellyRipa. "Kelly's time at Live predates these shows by years, so if anything, her success in syndication and promotion of these shows pays their salaries".

Before ending her tweet, Pompeo took a shot at the Bachelor franchise, referencing that it doesn't have much diversity among its participants.

"Okay @fleissmeister... that's some handle bro! Your show does NOT pay @KellyRipa salary", she wrote. "Also we don't attack successful women on our network and men certainly can not take credit for their success. And I also, at first, was very skeptical of the show, but I'm here now and I wouldn't be the Bachelorette if I didn't believe in the process and how it has made me so empowered to be myself".

The "savage" Pompeo also said, "don't get be started on your show", adding "Bachelor soooooo white".

Fleiss has yet to respond, but if he does, let's hope he comes armed with an apology.

The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 8/7c on ABC. Kelly Ripa will definitely not be watching.
