She cuts me off, she interrupts me....

 

By this you are saying that you are talking with her and she starts talking without letting you finish.

 

If you and I are talking and she joins in the conversation rudely, you can say "She butted in".  (to butt = to hit with the head  The goat butted the farmer.)
