Ellen DeGeneres recently aired her 1600th episode and one of the ways she wanted to celebrate was to show a montage of some of her favorite moments where people have made her laugh hysterically.
To be more specific, these are the celebrities that she interviews that are making her laugh. This montage is all about members of her staff, people from the audience, and those people that have helped her pull off hidden camera pranks where they have to say what Ellen says to them in their ear piece. I’ve said it before, but one of my favorite things is seeing comedians lose their sh*t and laugh themselves.
One of my favorite parts is when Ellen has someone working at a Starbucks drive-thru say to a customer through the speaker, “Oh, I just ate so much chocolate… I’m full.” To everyone’s surprise, the guy responds, “I just smoked so much weed…” LOL!! Ellen just dies of laugher. Watch the hilarious video below.
For being a lesbian, Ellen DeGeneres sure does love her male strippers. Last year, she surprised newly-engaged Miley Cyrus with an impromptu lap dance by two buff shirtless men. The talk show host must’ve purchased a Groupon for Chippendales or something, because she brought more exotic dancers to her show. This time, they were there to work over NeNe Leakes who’s remarrying her ex-husband Gregg.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta reality star certainly has come a long way. Just a few years ago, she was drunk in a limo mocking Kim Zolciak’s “Tardy For The Party.” Now, she’s successfully transitioned to legit Hollywood actress, appearing in both The New Normal and Glee. Even though she’s legit, she still finds time to slum it with the crazy ATL women for Andy Cohen. Must be that huge pay check she gets.
Reportedly, she’s the highest-paid Housewife on Bravo’s payroll. Hope she brought some Benjamin Franklins with her to stuff the pants of the quartet of hot guys writhing up on her. I’m sure she wouldn’t have appreciated guys making it rain with just dollar bills at the club during her stripper days. Check out Ellen’s surprise bachelorette party for everyone’s favorite sassy Housewife below. One the guys really gets into it. He’s popping his donkey booty every which way.
Ellen DeGeneres just pulled an Oprah Winfrey and surprised her ENTIRE audience with a free trip to Australia! The audience will be joining her later this year when she films her show on the other side of the globe. The trip was made possible with Swisse Wellness and Qantas as the sponsors.
Appropriately, Nicole Kidman was the special guest of the day and before the big surprise, the two were talking about Australia and what Kidman recommends Ellen do there. There’s one spot in Australia that Kidman joked is magical because she believes she got pregnant there. Then Ellen joked, “If i get pregnant it’s a real miracle!” LOL!
Ellen then mentioned that Australia Day is also her birthday and on her birthday she likes to give presents. So, she led the audience to believe that one lucky person would get the chance to win a trip to Australia. She then dropped the bomb that the entire audience is going and the confetti was let loose. The reactions are my favorite part: Jumping up and down, screaming, crying… the whole nine yards. Watch the funny and heartwarming clip below.
Earlier this week, the hilarious and talented Emma Stone stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about her new movie, Gangster Squad and more. Shortly after bugging her resident DJ, Tony Victor Okungbowa about his secret relationship and then talking about the People’s Choice Award she had won the night prior, Ellen introduced Emma Stone to the stage.
Emma Stone talked about her 1940s accent for her Gangster Squad role, and what it originally sounded like before the director gave her a thumbs down. They also talk about Andrew Garfield, kissing Ryan Gosling, and more. There’s also a funny story about when Ellen DeGeneres went up to Emma Stone and Cameron Crowe‘s table at a restaurant one day (before Emma had ever met her) and what she said.
Watch a couple clips from the interview or watch the entire episode below. I recommend the latter – such a funny episode!
On today’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, reality star, business woman, and upcoming talk show host Bethenny Frankel talked to Ellen about her divorce, which was only announced a couple days ago. The star is getting divorced from her husband Jason Hoppy after three years of marriage and the couple share a two-year old daughter named Bryn.
Frankel got emotional very early into the interview, her emotions still very raw from what is currently going on in her life. “I feel like a bit of a disappointment to all of you, and I feel like a failure,” Frankel said explaining that she “really put it out there” on her various reality shows, that you can have the fairytale life and believe in love, etc. Ellen asked her why decided to push through and do the interview on the show anyway, as it had been planned before news of the divorce came out. “I can’t just only be on reality TV and show everything when it’s the fairy princess fairytale and then not take my hits when I have to.”
The interview is actually very touching and genuine and I definitely feel for her. I couldn’t imagine how painful of a time it must be for her right now. The two ladies later joke about how Bethenny Frankel’s upcoming talk show will just be about how awful things are for her: “The Bethenny Show… it’s a crappy day every day,” Frankel joked the slogan would be. Watch the interview below.
A week after the Sandy Hook shootings in Newtown, Connecticut, two videos from very opposing camps hit the internet. First you have celebrities asking in a PSA, “How many more colleges? How many more classrooms? How many more movie theaters? How many more house of faith? How many more shopping malls? How many more street corners?” Demand A Plan is a grassroots initiative to mobilize Americans to DEMAND a plan to end gun violence from Congress and President Obama. Reese Witherspoon, Beyonce, Michelle Williams, Selena Gomez, John Hamm, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson and many, many more lend their voices to the PSA.
Coincidentally on the same day, National Rifle Association president Wayne LaPierre, held a live press conference. LaPierre claims the media is to blame for the shootings and not guns. He explains that the entertainment industry makes “the filthiest form of pornography,” citing violent music videos and films Natural Born Killers and American Psycho. He further goes on to say that “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” His most controversial comment that has celebrities on Twitter in a tizzy is his claim that had armed guards been at Sandy Hook, innocent lives would’ve been spared that day. Check out both vids below.
The One Million Moms are at it again, setting an awful example for their children and demonstrating the opposite of what the holiday season is all about. The group is once again bullying Ellen DeGeneres by threatening a boycott of JC Penney simply for having her in the ads. So ridiculous. I applaud JC Penney for sticking with Ellen every step of the way.
This is what the One Million
Moms Bullies had to say about the commercial on their site: “CP has made their choice to offend a huge majority of their customers again,’ the group states on its website. ‘Christians must now vote with their wallets. We have contacted JC Penney’s several times in the past with our concerns, and they will not listen. They have decided to ignore our complaints so we will avoid them at all costs.’
Ellen has stood up for herself already, making an amazing statement on her show about all of this hogwash when if first started in early 2012. I don’t think she has to say anything more. Check out the cute & funny commercial below and feel free to do some of your holiday shopping at JC Penney!
The infamous Grease duo, Olivia Newton-John & John Travolta have reunited to release a Christmas album together titled, This Christmas and today they’ve just released the music video for one of the songs: “I Think You Might Like It.”
In the video, Travolta flies his plane home for Christmas where he is reunited with Olivia Newton-John, who drove to meet him in a convertible packed with presents. The two do a little line dancing throughout the video in black outfits, which feels like an homage to the outfits they wore in final scenes in Grease. Aside from John & Olivia, we also see clips of other families reuniting for the holidays, including some soldiers returning home as well.
In the final clip of the video, the two drive off in the convertible, with one last wave from Olivia. This is of course an homage to the final scene in Grease when Danny & Sandy drive off in the flying car.
Oh, along with the release of the music video, John and Oliva sat down with Ellen DeGeneres on her show today. Enjoy the cute (and cheesy) Christmas music video, as well as their segment on Ellen below.
